Those under eye bags can certainly be a nuisance and frustrating to wake up to. That's why most folks purchase that miracle eye cream that will solve all of their under eye bag nightmares. Truth is, most of those creams don't show results because under eye bags are usually caused by bad habits. Here are some ways you can avoid those pesky under eye bags on your own.
STAY AWAY FROM THE SALT SHAKER
Water always finds its way to the parts of your body that have the most sodium and the area around your eyes is prime real estate. That’s why if you like to shake the salt shaker during dinner, you may wake up to morning-after puffiness.
FIND A BETTER SLEEPING POSITION
If you are a side or stomach sleeper beware of the fluid that may collect under your eyes, because of gravity. Try sleeping on your back and add another pillow under your head.
DON'T LEAVE YOUR MAKE-UP ON WHEN YOU SLEEP
Going to sleep with your eye make up on can make your eyes water and cause morning-after puffiness. Even if you're dead tired, don't forget to wash your face with a good cleanser.
DON'T OVERDO IT ON THE ALCOHOL
Alcohol can dehydrate your skin causing the area around your eyes to weaken and sink into a pouch. If you have a few too many, make sure to drink water before going to bed.
PROTECT YOUR EYES FROM UV-RAYS
The skin around your eyes can sag and easily wrinkle, if exposed to too much sun. Make sure to use sunscreen, sunglasses, and hats to protect your face from the uv-rays.
Here's another good reason why you should stop smoking or never start. Smoking can dehydrate and weaken the skin on your face and cause wrinkled and droopy eyes.
We're not saying a good eye cream is a waste. In fact, it's a great idea to use an eye cream for extra moisture in the evenings, before you go to bed. Unfortunately, it won't solve the problem. Unless, you kick those bad habits, those under eye bags will continue to haunt you.
