A lot of women and men are worried about the so-called bags under the eyes. Without a doubt, they give a person a few extra years of age and make him tired. Rambler figured out what could be done about it.
It turned out that bags under the eyes can occur due to some habits: alcohol consumption, excess salt in the diet and, of course, lack of sleep. Therefore, it is worth limiting the amount of salty food, especially for dinner, and minimizing the use of alcoholic beverages. At the same time, it is useful for health and appearance to establish a daily regimen and, finally, get enough sleep.
However, it is also important to "sleep properly". So, it is recommended to sleep with your head up, because this will prevent fluid from accumulating under the eyes. For sleeping, it is better to choose a pillow higher or raise the head of the bed by 3-5 cm - for example, by placing books under the legs. In addition, it is best not to fall asleep face down on your stomach, as this causes fluid to flow to the eyes and subsequent puffiness. It is better to choose the right pillow with an orthopedic effect and sleep on your back.
It is also recommended to use cold compresses. The fact is that cold constricts blood vessels and relieves puffiness. For a compress, soak a cotton pad in cool water and place the compress under your eyes for 5 minutes. Can be applied with the convex side to the skin under the eyes. Chilled slices of fresh cucumber or potatoes are also suitable as a cold compress.
You can also use tea compresses, because it contains caffeine, which, penetrating under the skin, improves blood circulation and helps to get rid of excess fluid. To do this, brew two tea bags and let them cool in the refrigerator. Next, put wet bags under your eyes for 15-30 minutes, after squeezing excess liquid out of them.
The selection of the right cosmetics will help to cope with this problem. So, you can not ignore the skin care of the eyelids. To do this, you can use caring creams, serums, eye patches. However, when applying the product, be careful not to stretch the skin.
Of course, if the bags are very pronounced over the years, the problem is much more difficult to solve. For such situations, there is blepharoplasty, which involves removing the hernias that form these sacs. Cosmetologists, on the other hand, suggest using a filler, laser, mesotherapy or biorevitalization to combat defects in the area around the eyes.
