Too many late nights, allergies, and poor sleep can all contribute to puffy eye bags. This puffiness around the eyes can produce dark circles, giving you a not-so attractive panda bear look.
As you age, the muscles and tissue structures that support your eyelids gradually weaken. Saggy skin, in combination with an accumulation of fluid in the area, can make the under-eye area appear swollen or puffy. Restore your youthfulness by eliminating your puffy eyes and dark circles.
1. Re-evaluate Your Sleep Position
Your sleep position can cause fluid to build up around your eyes. Consider sleeping on your back to prevent gravity from causing swelling. You can also place an extra pillow under your head to prevent fluids from pooling under the skin.
2. Cut Your Salt Intake
While some salt in your diet is essential for well-functioning organ systems, too much salt can have a negative effect. Certain parts of the body, such as the area under your eyes, can retain water due to too much sodium in your diet. Cut down on the salt to avoid next day bags under eyes.
3. Manage Your Allergies
If you have allergies, you know how hard it can be to manage your symptoms when allergy season comes around. For many allergy sufferers, puffy, watery eyes are a frequent battle. Talk to your doctor about what you can do to better control your symptoms. There are also many natural remedies you can try to curb your symptoms, such as the use of essential oils.
4. Remove Your Makeup Before Bed
Before getting a full night of shut-eye, take the time to remove all your makeup. Leaving your eye makeup on overnight can cause your eyes to water, resulting in puffiness the next morning. Use a mild cleanser or makeup wipes to thoroughly remove all traces of eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara.
5. Use the Gentle Eye Care Product
Since the skin around the eyes are very delicate, it is important to use gentle and soothing products to reduce any form of inflammation around your eye area. ElastiFirm Eye Serum is boosted with Vitamins to gently nourish the skin as well as clinically-proven ingredients such as Sqisandryl and Argireline to reduce puffiness and fine lines.
6. Drop the Bad Habits
Bad lifestyle habits like smoking and drinking can do a number on your skin. Smoking weakens the skin causing premature aging. The chemicals in cigarettes can also irritate the delicate eye area. Alcohol can dehydrate the skin, making your eyes appear dark and sunken. Limit cigarettes and alcohol, or better yet, quit for better overall health.
7. Use Skin Fillers to Eliminate Eye Bags
Facial fillers can transform aging skin for a younger, well-rested complexion. Eye bags are often caused by the loss of volume in the mid-cheek area. As the volume beneath the eyes is diminished, eye bags can appear larger.
Fillers under eyes can be used to replace volume in the mid-cheek area to correct eye bags and dark circles. Eye bags are a common occurrence that can have a major impact on your appearance.
Dermal fillers offer plumping benefits that create the appearance of skin tightening and the reduction of dark circles. Eye fillers for dark circles and eye bags can give you fast results without surgery or invasive procedures.
