Top 9 Causes of Under-Eye Bags

Genetics:

It's unfortunate but true: if your family has a history of bags under the eyes, high chance is you will also develop bags under eyes later in life. Genetics play a significant role in the development of under-eye bags, as genetic factors, like skin thickness and fat distribution, can weaken elasticity around the eyes, leading to gradual sagging and protrusion, resulting in leading to the formation of bags over time.

Aging:

As we age, collagen and elastin productions decrease, the skin tissues around our eyes loses elasticity, causing the skin to sag naturally, leading to the formation of bags and wrinkles.

Sun Damage:

Excessive sun exposure means damage from UV rays which accelerates collagen breakdown, impairing the skin's firmness and resilience, triggering skin laxity and eventual saggy under-eye bags. Sun damage induces inflammation, promoting fluid retention, resulting in puffiness under the eyes.

Lack of Sleep:

A good night's sleep is essential for overall health and well-being. Lack of sleep disrupts the body's fluid balance, causing fluid to accumulate around the eyes. The poor blood flow and fluid retention contribute to the appearance of bags under your eyes.

Dehydration:

Not drinking enough water and don't wearing moisturizer lead to dehydrated skin. The collagens underneath the epidermis lacks moisture and thus shrinks, leading to dry, dull, and sunken skin with saggy eye bags and wrinkles.

Salty Foods:

High-sodium diets can cause the body to retain water, leads to widespread water retention. Retained fluid causes eye swelling and puffiness, contributing to the eventual swollen eyes.

Allergies:

Allergy-induced eye bags result from inflammation, which causes blood vessels underneath the eye skin to dilate. This leads to increased fluid accumulation and thus swelling of the skin under your eyes.

Smoking:

Smoking contributes to premature aging and skin damage. First of all, the toxins accelerate collagen and elastin breakdown, damaging the skin's elasticity, leading to saggy bags under the eyes. Smoking also narrows blood vessels, reducing blood flow and oxygen to the tissues around the eyes, resulting in aged, unhealthy, slouchy dark circles and under-eye bags.

4 Popular Home Remedies to Get Rid of Eye Bags

Cold Compress:

Cold compresses reduce eye bags by constricting blood vessels and minimizing water retention-induced swelling. To do so, apply a cold compress, such as frozen spoons, ice cubes wrapped in clothes or cold gel packs, to your eyes for five minutes. You will feel the swelling around the eyes reduces, and that your eye bag skin tighten.

Green Tea Bags and Grounded Coffee:

Coffee grounds and tea bags contain antioxidants and caffeine, which constrict blood vessels, boost blood circulation and reduces fluid retention, helping to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. To use, apply cooled green tea bags or coffee grounds underneath your eyes for 15 minutes.

Cucumber:

Cucumbers hold anti-inflammatory properties, and their hydrating and cooling effect tightens the skin and reduces inflammation. Putting cucumber slices on the eyes has long been proven to be able to soothe inflammation, alleviate puffiness and reduce eye bags. Their cooling effect tightens the skin and reduces inflammation. To use, slice chilled cucumber and place over closed eyes for 15-20 minutes.

Neti Pot:

For those experiencing puffiness due to allergies, a neti pot can help clear nasal passages and reduce congestion. The improved sinus drainage minimizes fluid buildup around the eyes, reducing allergy-induced eye bags. Be mindful to not use tap water, but to use medically-approved saline solutions from drug stores.

9 Science-Proven Skin Care Ingredients to Reduce Eye Bags

Retinol:

Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, is a "crowned jewel" ingredient for anti-aging skin care products. Retinol stimulates collagen production and promotes cell turnover, thereby improving skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and under-eye bags. While retinol's anti-aging effects are powerful, it can also be very irritating to the skin. Possible side effects include redness, swelling, tender skin, itchiness, peeling and more. Applying retinol can make your skin photosensitive. Therefore, you should only use retinol eye serum at night or, if used in daytime, wait for 20 to 30 minutes before applying sunscreen and heading out.

Caffeine:

Look for eye creams containing caffeine to achieve a brighter and more awake look! Caffeine has vasoconstrictive properties, meaning it can constrict blood vessels to reduce blood flow and puffiness. Caffeine eye creams often give quick results that sadly may be temporary. Skin reaction such as redness, peeling and itchiness can occur.

Green Tea Extract:

Rich in antioxidants, green tea extract has anti-inflammatory properties for soothing and tightening the skin, making it beneficial for reducing under-eye bags and dark circles, promote a more youthful appearance. While green tea extract is a natural ingredient, some people do exhibit mild allergic reactions to it.

Chamomile Extract:

Known for its soothing properties, chamomile extract's anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties helps calm the swollen skin, alleviating puffiness around the eyes. Chamomile is natural and very gentle, giving almost no chance of irritation.

Vitamin C:

Being a famous anti-aging skin care ingredient, vitamin C brightens the skin and promotes collagen synthesis, making for more radiant and elastic under eye area. Vitamin C's antioxidant function protects the skin against UV ray damage, helping you retain youthful undereye skin with no saggy eye bags. Beware: don't allow vitamin C eye creams into your eyes, as they can bring stinging sensation. What's more, while best used in the morning, vitamin C loses its functions when contacting sunlight. Therefore, you should wait for at least 20 minutes before applying sunscreen.

Niacinamide:

Niacinamide, or vitamin B3, improves skin elasticity and reduces inflammation, leading to firmer under eyes, diminishing the appearance of fine lines and puffiness. Niacinamide also strengthens the skin's barrier, making for skin more resilient to external damages such as rubbing, UV rays, pollutants and more. Niacinamide is also a famous skin care ingredient for hyperpigmentation, meaning it can balance uneven skin tone—very suitable for dark circles under your eyes. While niacinamide is compatibility with most skin types, skin irritation reactions such as itchiness and tenderness are still possible.

Hyaluronic Acid:

A major cause of saggy eye bags and wrinkles is dehydrated collagen tissues underneath the epidermis. Hyaluronic acid is the number one hydrating skin care ingredient. The water molecules in hyaluronic acid seeps into the skin the plump up the collagen, leading to firm, smooth skin, effectively reducing the appearance of eye bags and wrinkles. While hyaluronic acid is gentle, some people have skin that are not receptive to topical hyaluronic acid.

Glycerin:

Like hyaluronic acid, glycerin is a popular humectant that keep the skin around the eyes hydrated and supple to reduce bags under eyes. Some people even find glycerin to be better absorbed by the skin than hyaluronic acid. Therefore, it is best for you to experiment with eye creams with these two ingredients. Glycerin is a gentle skin care ingredient. However, its texture is very sticky. Putting undiluted glycerin can be counteractive to skin hydration. Instead, you should mix 1 part glycerin with 4 parts water.

Peptides:

Peptides is a type of topical lipids commonly found in thick, creamy moisturizers. It not only stimulates collagen production, but also repairs skin's barrier for more firm, bouncy and resilient skin texture, helping to reduce the appearance of under-eye bags, bringing you tight and smooth under eyes.

Cosmetic Treatments for Eye Bags

Eye Bag Surgery:

Blepharoplasty is a reconstructive surgery for the lower eyelids. During the procedure, the surgeon removes excess skin and undereye fat to eliminate sagging and puffiness, achieving a smoother, more youthful eye contour. Eye bag surgery gives you drastic results in a short period of time. Still, maintenance sessions are required in some cases. An unskilled surgeon can result in unnatural post-surgical appearance. Not to mention the possible post-surgical complications such as bleeding, scarring and infections.

Botox:

Botox injections work to relax eye muscles, thus reducing the appearance of facial expression-induced eye bags, wrinkles and fine lines. Botox is well-known for its fast working results. However, maintenance sessions per half to 1 year are necessary. Unskilled or excessive injections can also lead to stiff, unnatural facial expressions, with the risk of numbness in the face.

Injectable Fillers:

Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, add volume to hollow areas of your face. Fillers can smoothen your under eyelids, resulting in a flat and firm appearance. Nowadays, many filler materials are biodegradable, meaning they are compatible with the human body and can be absorbed over time. While this gives a natural look with low risk, maintenance sessions are necessary. Post-surgical complications include swelling and an uncomfortable feeling have having something alien inserted into your face.

Chemical Peeling:

Chemical peels involve exfoliating the old, dead surface skin layers to revel the firm, new skin layer underneath. Chemical peeling also promote skin regeneration for plump, bouncy skin. While under-eye chemical peeling can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and eye bags, it is a highly irritating procedure that must be performed by an experienced beauty professional. Chemical peeling solution accidentally entering the eyes can lead to serious consequences.

Laser Treatments:

Laser resurfacing targets skin issues by stimulating collagen production, effectively promoting firmer skin around the eyes and reducing the appearance of eye bags. While laser treatments for undereyes are very effective, side effects can range from mild swelling, skin peeling to scarring and eye damage.

FAQ

Why do I have eye bags?

Eye bags can be caused by various factors like genetics, aging, lack of sleep, and allergies. Genetics may predispose you, while aging leads to collagen loss, resulting in sagging skin. Lack of sleep, allergies, and lifestyle factors contribute to fluid retention and puffiness.

What is the difference between facial moisturizer and eye cream?

The skin around the eyes is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face. Eye creams are formulated with lighter textures, fewer irritants, and specific ingredients to address concerns like puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines, catering to the unique needs of the eye area.

Can young people get eye bags?

Yes, young people can experience eye bags. While aging is a common cause, factors like genetics, allergies, and lifestyle choices, such as lack of sleep and excessive salt intake, can contribute to the development of eye bags even in the younger demographic.

Does eye massage work in reducing eye bags?

Eye massage can improve blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, reducing fluid retention and puffiness. However, it may not completely eliminate eye bags caused by factors like genetics or aging. Combining massage with other remedies and lifestyle changes can enhance its effectiveness.

Why is radiofrequency energy effective in reducing eye bags?

Radiofrequency energy penetrates the skin, targeting excess fat causing eye bags. The multi-wavelength approach ensures thorough treatment across different skin layers. Additionally, it stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, more hydrated skin, addressing both the cause and visible signs of eye bags effectively.
