How to Get Rid of Bags Under Eyes & Dark Circles

How to Get Rid of Bags Under Eyes & Dark Circles

Tips for reducing under-eye circles

Under-eye bags and dark circles are usually caused by stress, dehydration or lack of sleep. Fortunately, there are a few tricks you can use to make them less noticeable. Make sure you’re staying hydrated and avoiding salty foods. Elevate your head while you sleep can help reduce those puffy places. And make sure you’re using SPF every day. Read on for more circle-reducing tricks.
Cold Compress A tried-and-true way to reduce eye puffiness and dark circles is to freeze or refrigerate two used tea bags, then place them over your closed eyes. Keep your head back (lying down is important) for around 10 minutes. For best results, use a caffeinated tea—the caffeine can help to constrict and relax those blood vessels. A cold compress, refrigerated cucumber slice or bag of frozen veggies are a great alternative to tea bags.
