Are you tired of always looking…tired?

They say that your eyes are the windows to your soul, so when you’re feeling low energy it’s really reflected in your face. And that’s why your under-eye bags are often noticeable.

Luckily, reviving the skin under your eyes can be easy with the right products at your fingertips. Let’s explore the causes of under-eye bags and how you can reduce the appearance of the bags under your eyes in only a few minutes.

What Causes Under Eye Bags?

First things first, do you know why you have bags under your eyes? According to Healthline, too little sleep isn’t the only culprit for under-eye bags. Some common causes for under-eye bags include:

  • Lack of sleep or chronic fatigue
  • Stress
  • Aging
  • Allergies
  • Fluid retention
  • Sun exposure

For many people, under-eye bags are accompanied by dark circles under their eyes when they wake up. It’s often a sign you’re not getting enough hours of sleep at night, you’re stressed, or your skin is retaining water.

As you age, you may also notice bags under your eyes. However, this is often a result of your skin losing its elasticity.

How to Fix Under-Eye Bags

Under-eye bags, though harmless, can look unsightly. And while you might be tempted to just throw on some shades or extra concealer to cover up dark circles, this doesn’t get to the root of the problem or reduce puffiness.
