We’ve all probably woken up with under eye bags after a late night or a particularly stressful week at work. Bags under the eyes are caused by fluid pooling in the sensitive under-eye area and weakening of the muscles surrounding the eye. As our bodies age, we become more prone to getting under eye bags, affecting how you feel about your looks and cause others to make assumptions about your mood. We’ve rounded up five top tips for getting rid of under eye bags below, so you’ll never have to look tired and worn out again!
1. Get enough rest
Sometimes the most straightforward answers can be most effective. By ensuring you get enough sleep (around 8 hours a night), you can prevent under eye bags caused by tiredness. However, keep in mind that as you age, you will most likely be more prone to under eye bags even if you get enough sleep.
2. Sleep with elevated pillows
While you sleep, fluid can collect under your eyes and cause puffiness. By sleeping with your head raised on two pillows or even a bed wedge, you can prevent this pooling of fluid, thereby reducing the appearance of under eye bags.
3. Drink enough water
Dehydration is one of the leading causes of under eye bags, so it stands to reason that by staying hydrated, you reduce your chances of having bags under your eyes. Experts recommend drinking about two and a half litres of fluids a day for women, while men should drink about a litre more. Don’t worry though; this recommendation covers fluid from water, other beverages, and even food.
4. Stop smoking
Smoking depletes your body’s stores of vitamin C, which is crucial in creating collagen in your skin. Smokers are more likely to deal with issues such as wrinkles, discolouration, dark circles, and under eye bags. By quitting smoking, you reduce your chances of premature ageing.
5. Turn to Exuviance
For guaranteed results, it is best to turn to the experts. Use Exuviance Hydrating Eye Complex to reduce signs of visible aging including crow’s feet, dryness, fine lines, and under eye bags. Time-released retinol encourages a brighter, firmer, and smoother under-eye appearance, which is why our Retinol Eye Creme is perfect for targeting and getting rid of stubborn under eye bags. Last but not least, Exuviance Total Correct Eye is ideal for the mature client looking for an intense anti-ageing regimen designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, visibly plump and volumize, and even skin tone.
