Having dark circles or bags under your eyes makes you look tired and older, which are two things no one wants! Luckily, there are some things you can do to get rid of these problem areas and make yourself look refreshed and youthful again.
Sleep: This is much easier said than done, but the best way to rid your face of dark circles under the eyes is to get plenty of sleep. In today's busy world, it can be difficult to find enough hours in the day to get the sleep you need, but the health benefits are so great that it is worth re-organizing your day. Not only can it get rid of your dark circles, getting enough sleep can even reduce your risk of getting a cold, the flu, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity!
Stay Hydrated: If you are dehydrated, your eyes can get puffy, which will make your under eye circles and bags look even worse. So be sure to drink plenty of water and use cleansers that won't dry your skin. You should also use a hydrating eye cream on the delicate skin around your eyes.
Cold Compresses: Using a cold compress on your eye area for 10-15 minutes twice a day can reduce the swelling and puffiness that leads to under eye bags and shadows. While this will only work for a few hours, doing it twice a day over time can keep more permanent bags from forming under your eyes by preventing long-term puffiness and swelling. Best of all, this is something easy that you can do at home with little or no cost.
Fillers: If your under eye circles are caused by a loss of the fat around your eyes, you may want to consider getting your under eye area filled. A doctor or aesthetician can fill your under eye area with a filler like Restylane to restore your under eye area. Fillers can also be used to treat dark circles caused by broken blood vessels. This is a common, easy procedure that can make you look much younger by giving your under eye area a well-rested, youthful look. Cosmetic fillers can be expensive but are long-lasting and very effective.
Laser treatments: Laser treatments are available that reduce the appearance of dark circles that are caused by broken blood vessels.
Surgery: The only permanent way to remove the bags from under your eyes is to have surgery on the area. There are several different surgical procedures that could help your under eye area, depending on what the problem is and what kind of dark circles and bags you have. Consult with a cosmetic surgeon to see if surgery is the best option for you.
No matter your budget, you should be able to find an approach procedure to reduce your dark circles and bags so you look more fresh and youthful. Talk with a clinic like New Age Spa Institute, Inc. for more information about your options.
