Banish the Bags Under Your Eyes

Banish the Bags Under Your EyesTired of being told you look tired? Here’s how to get rid of eye bags, puffiness, dark shadows, and circles.

Seasonal allergies, a cold, a sinus infection: These are some of the things that can lead to water building up under the eye.

Addressing the underlying cause will help treat these temporary eruptions of puffiness.

  • Treat hay fever, if that’s the problem. 
  • Try a neti pot.
  • Switch your sleep position.

Other everyday habits, including rubbing your eyes frequently, going to bed with makeup on, and excessive drinking, can contribute to under-eye bags, too.  Heavy alcohol drinking causes dehydration . That weakens the delicate skin around the eyes, making it more likely to sink into a pouch.

Eye bags are very common, and are usually not related to your health. But if your bags appear suddenly and you’re not suffering from allergies, a sinus infection, or a cold — and they don’t ease up when you try the lifestyle steps mentioned above — it’s a good idea to see your doctor.
