Six ways to lose your eye bags

Eye bag correction san antonio tx Most of us get bags under our eyes once in awhile. Maybe we haven’t been sleeping well, or spring weather has triggered our hay fever. Some people are more susceptible than others to showing signs of illness, stress or a late night underneath their eyes. But there are some solutions that could help you put your bags away:

1.) Apply cold

Cucumber slices or a cold, wet cloth over the eyes, giving extra attention to the lower eyelids, can help reduce the appearance of bags. Cold can help reduce puffiness caused by lack of sleep, illness, even a crying spell.

And to further avoid bags, don’t sleep flat on your back or on your side. By sleeping slightly elevated, you’re using gravity to help you avoid fluid building up underneath your lower eyelids.

Lifestyle habits definitely affect our skin and contribute to eye bags. But some of the worst problem-causers are avoidable: Wear sunglasses and UVA- and UVB-blocking sunscreen. Avoid too much alcohol to avoid the dehydration that can give your eyelids a sunken appearance. Smoking reduces skin tautness and elasticity, contributing to baggy skin under the eyes.

Regular use of moisturizer around the eyes can improve their appearance. And make sure you drink plenty of water, as dehydration can contribute to a sunken appearance of the eyes.
