How to Rid Bags Under Eyes?? (Page 1)

Hi,

my problem is that I always have bags under my eyes, no matter how much or how little sleep I get. I'll even sleep a full 10 hours like a baby and I still have dark bags under my eyes. What could I do about this? Is it my diet, sleep position, or anything else?? Someone please give me some advice. Thanks!

I have bags under my eyes but I believe in my case it is completely hereditary. Does anyone else have bags in your family?

Under Eye Bags - How to Treat!
It seems like you have a genetic reason to have under eye sagging bags. These can usually be treated either by a dermatologist or by using creams that have plumping and firming ingredients in them such as peptides, Retinyl palmitate and hyaluronic acid analogues.

Cosmedic offers a dermatologist recommended treatment for this problem called iRescue with all of the above ingredients.

Hi Pariya

I also have eye bag . Knew of a few ways as below . But the last one works best


potato: Slice a raw potato (after refrigerating for a couple of minutes) into two and circle the closed eyes gently with those halves. Place it on your eyes so that it also covers the puffed ares for 15-20 minutes.


Milky way: Dip cotton pads in chilled milk and place on your eyelids and relax for 20-30 minutes. This well help your eyes in water retention and it would also cool them off .


Cucumber relief: Take 2 slices of fresh refrigerated cucumber and place it on your eyes for 25 minutes. Relax with the cool soothing slices over your eyes and slip into a short nap, it will help refresh your mind as well as your eyes.


Chilled tea bags: Moisten two tea bags in cold water and refrigerate them for a while. Then place them over your eyes for 25-30 minutes. Lie back and relax with the cool teabags over your eyes.

Instant eye bag removal: Apply at the eye bay and wait for 2mins.

the Best Way to Get Rid of Bags
I too used to have horrible bags under my eyes when I was in college. I was spending late nights out and sometimes going a day or two before getting to bed. I got a job my first summer away from home at bath & body works. They sell these great little gel packs (i am not sure what they are really called) and they go into the refrig. At night and when you get up in the morning you just place the packs on your eyes for 5 to 8 minutes. Not only does it help reduce, and sometimes get rid of the bags (it just depends on how dark the bags are), but these packs help you feel a little fresher! The coolness of the packs just helps out a lot. I think I paid $8 for the pair, but if you do not have the money I have found that spoons in the refrig. Work just as well. Do not put the spoons in the refrig. Over night they will be too cold for your eyes, just place them in there when you wake up in the morning and when you get out of the shower go get them and place them on your eyes for 5 to 8 minutes. I hope this will help a little.

Ole Wives Tales But It Works!
Coming from the fairy godmother......Believe in miracles! My grandmother taught me if you would gently rub preparation h under your eyes, it would take the puffiness and bagginess away. Yes, hemorrhoid cream. Just do not get this into your eyes. It sounds freaky, but it does work. :p

Drink alot of water. Also, the neutrogena eye cream for puffiness and dark circles works good, and so does the clinique eye cream, although it's more expensive. For a temporary solution put two spoons in the freezer and in the morning take them out and put them under your eyes. Hope it works for ya :d

I got this from another site, this might help:


"first of all, most dark circles are caused by the appearance of veins beneath the thin skin under our eyes. As we age and our skin becomes more damaged due to sun exposure, the skin under our eyes becomes thinner and more wrinkled, which allows the veins in this fatty padded area under the eye to appear more prominent. These veins also become more swollen and obvious in people with allergies. Similarly, people with a history of eczema, hay fever or asthma often develop dark circles. They do, of course, become more apparent with a lack of sleep. In some people with dark skin, circles under the eye may actually be due to superficial pigmentation of the skin and not the underlying veins.
Common sense measures such as getting plenty of sleep and treating allergies can often help. Short-term tricks of the trade include applying cool cucumber slices or cool tea bags to the under-eye area, which helps to reduce swelling. Cosmetic concealers and foundation can also work wonders for tired looking eye circles. Choose a gold-based colour that matches your skin shade exactly (the gold will counteract the blueness of the under-eye circle). The most common mistake women make when applying concealer is choosing a colour that's too light - which only achieves a 'reverse raccoon' effect. Another common mistake is putting the concealer only under the eye. You should apply it all around the eye area and blend it in well. After applying, set the concealer with a light dusting of translucent face powder so that it stays put. To avoid drawing attention to your under-eye area, don't apply eyeliner or mascara to your lower lashes.

Often, the inner corner of your eye is the darkest part, so a white shimmer pencil will cover it. Some companies manufacture a blueish or white pencil just for this purpose."

Magnetic Sleep Mask
I used to have bags under my eyes for years as did many members in my family. My doctor introduced me to a sleep mask with magnetic technology that caused the bags to not come in as dark and in my parents case ...Go away completely. I also noticed that in addition to the bags becoming less noticeable , I slept better and awoke less during the night. Magnetic technology is great for balance and allowing the body to self heal and recuperate. I am now lookign in to a magnetic sleep system from the same company that has had a profound effect on many people with sleep challenges.

Eye Bags
I too have this problem and after visiting a surgeon I was advised that these are caused by hernia where the muscles have released and the fat has pooled. Plastic surgery is supposed to be able to take care of this. Cool

sorry to be dramatic, but don't put spoons in the freezer overnight and on your eyes in the morning or they will get stuck like on dumb and dumber how the guys tongue gets stuck to the pole...Lol (at least I think that is the movie) just put them in the fridge for fifteen minutes in the morning:)
let me know if this helps

Eye Bags - Got Rid Of It
Hi,
I'm Wendy.I used to get bags under my eyes all the time mostly due to my inability to fall asleep. I would stay up late thinking about something then wake up early next morning only to see little bags under my eyes. I somehow managed to kick the habit of staying up late but my eye bags wouldn't go away.I then recently read an article about a woman who supposedly got rid of her eye bags using a particular eye care product. I tried the same product and it worked pretty well. My eye bags had nearly disappeared within 2 weeks.

Tea bags
I used to put some tea bags cold under my eyes in the mornig before my makeup, too much water, 8 hours sleeping and no makeup for going bed because I noticed that the brown circles get deep while you sleep with makeup in your eyes specially in the eyelash.

Yes it does work. I have/had bags under my eyes and they were really bad. SO i started washing my face and then putting a cold wash cloth on my eyes for 15-20 minutes in the morning and before I go to bed. ALso don't drink water 30 minutes before bed. Your eyes retain water when you sleep. Hope this helps!!! Very Happy

Young With Bags Under Eyes
I seem to have the same problem and I am really young. It could be the lack of excercise but I've read it could be kidney disease, allergies and some other things that can cause this. I am pretty sure I do not have kidney disease because I do not have the signs and I do not have allergies except I am allergic to this type of bug. Right now I put two spoons in the refrigerator and hope to get results soon. I will begin excercise to the maxium early tomorrow to change my lifestyle but can anyone out there help me out? I am also trying to drink lots of water and juice. Other than that, I dont think its in my genes

Well it is most likely not the fact that you aren't excercising enough. I couldn't find anything that worked and so I decided to google it. Now I am putting a cold wash cloth over my eyes in the morning. It really has been helping and is reducing the bags. Also i sometimes sleep with it on all night. Keep it on for 15-20 minutes for best results. Very Happy

Bags under eyes are usually genetic--my grandmother has these huge circles/bags and it looks like she doesn't sleep, but it's genetics--my mom, my sister, and I all have them too! To cover them up, use a concealer and drink plenty of water.
