EYE BAGS Eye bags or puffy eyes Formed due to mild swelling or puffiness in the preorbital area of the eye. Eye bags can make one look older, tired, and more haggard. Eye Bags & Dark CirclesThese two problems share many of the same underlying causes. Having serious eye bags can also cast shadows and cause dark circles. EYE BAGS CAUSES Lack of SleepWhen we do not get enough sleep, our bodies are not able to remove excess fluids. Overtime, these fluids begin to build up in the tissues under our eyes, causing puffy and swollen eye bags. AllergiesAllergies cause the body to release histamines, chemicals that cause fluid build-up in the preorbital area. This makes the areas around the eyes and nose swell, resulting in eye bags. AgingAs we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen. The muscles and tissues supporting our eyes also start to weaken. Our skin loses fat, leaving once-plump areas hollow. As a result, skin around our eye begins to sag, forming eye bags. SmokingSmoking has been linked to cause accelerated aging. Premature aging may result in the formation of deeper eye bags. Genetics & Medical ConditionsCertain medical conditions may cause eye bags. Genetics may also result in hereditary eye bags. Determining the cause of dark circles allows for targeted treatment.
