The 8 Best Treatments For Under-Eye Bags


 Under-eye bags are one of the most frustrating beauty concerns. No matter how much sleep you seem to get, they never seem to budge. We’re fed up with our puffy eyes and being told over and over that we look tired (and we bet you’re sick of it too),

 so we’ve put together a list of the eight best treatments for under-eye bags. With both natural solutions and targeted beauty treatments, you’re sure to find the exact right solution for you so you can finally look bright-eyed and bushy tailed come Monday morning.

The 8 Best Treatments For Under-Eye Bags

1. Cold Spoon

This might sound like something passed down from your mother, but so what? Moms are almost always right.The cold temperature of the spoon helps reduce swelling, and they’re the perfect size and shape to cover your under eye (ten minutes should do the trick!).

2. Tea Bags

Here’s another natural and affordable solution that models keep in their back pockets: simply soak two black or green tea bags in warm water and then chill them in the fridge for a few minutes before gently placing them under your eyes. The caffeine helps reduce swelling for puff-free eyes, because what can’t tea do?

3. Silk Pillowcase

Sleeping on silk isn’t just for the rich and famous. Silk is soothing and calming to skin, and a silk pillowcase or eye mask can help reduce swelling and puffiness through the night so you wake up gorgeous and bright-eyed. While we’re at it, try sleeping on your back to let gravity do the work for you!

4. Under-Eye Masks

Face masks make your skin feel soft and smooth as a baby’s bottom. Eye masks do the same thing, but targeted to your eye bags. They infuse the skin with much needed hydration and calming properties to bring down swelling and reduce dark circles – not to mention, they feel incredible.

5. Roller

Rollers are great to use in the mornings when you’re in a hurry. Most have a cooling solution that you dot onto your bags, and then use a smooth ball tip to smooth in the cream and massage your under eyes. Immediately, your eyes look brighter and less puffy, and it takes all of five minutes. For more targeted beauty treatments, check out Activeskin for a list of skincare expert favourites.

6. Less Salt/Alcohol

We all know that consuming excess salt and alcohol leads to water retention and puffiness, but you might not realize that it could also be causing the puffiness under your eyes. Skip the evening glass of wine and cut out sodium by 7 or 8 p.m. to see noticeable results in the morning.

7. Exercise

Exercise is an energizer, which helps combat under-eye bags and puffiness. Make sure you’re getting in regular exercise, and that just might help alleviate your eye bags all on it’s own.

8. Preparation

We’ve saved our favorite tip for last. Hemorrhoid cream is surprisingly beneficial for under-eye bags, as crazy as it might sound. It contains an anti inflammatory that reduces puffiness almost instantly, but obviously be very careful when applying.
