How To Treat Bags Under Your Eyes
Everyone wants to know how to treat those bags under your eyes, so here is a great film showing you how. Treat your bags properly and leave your eyes looking healthy and bright with VideoJug's help.
Step 1: Get Some Sleep
If Dark Circles run in your family or are due to allergies, see a doctor for treatment.
Otherwise the easiest step to treat those sad sacks is to make sure you're getting enough sleep at night and drinking plenty of water during the day. And remember that alcohol, smoking and drug use can contribute to bags under the eyes.
Step 2: Natural Remedies
Believe it or not, cucumbers have long been used as a natural way to reduce puffiness and freshen the area around the eyes. In the morning, cut two thin slices of cool cucumber, lie down and place them on your eyes. Leave them for 10 or 15 minutes.
You might also try using two fresh, cool and moist caffeinated tea bags. The tannin in tea is thought to help reduce swelling and discoloration. Careful not to get it in your eyes!
Step 3: Wash Your Face
Wash your face with cool to cold water and mild soap or face wash. The cold cool water will help restrict blood flow to the area around the eye and decrease swelling.
Step 4: Use Creams
Look for eye creams that contain Vitamin K and retinol. Both are considered effective in treating bags and dark areas under the eyes.
Hemorrhoid cream can also reduce swelling – just be careful to keep it from getting in your eye.
Step 5: Cover It Up
For any lingering discoloration, brush on a little light, reflective tone concealer under your eyes.
Step 6: Skip The Salt
Now that you have a happier, healthier looking face, let's keep it that way.
Eat a healthy, balanced diet and avoid salt, which can make you retain water and puff up those bags.
