17 Easy Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Under Eye Bags

October 1, 2019


Have you ever woken up in the morning only
to see bags under your eyes in the mirror? That is not a fun way to start your day with
everyone saying you look tired or sick. Under-eye puffiness also referred to as bags
under the eyes, are usually caused by a number of things like allergies, stress, smoking,
excessive salt or lack of sleep. These factors can cause water retention in
the sensitive tissue under the eyes allowing fluid to pool under them, which leads to mild
swelling and puffiness. Although these bags aren’t dangerous and
don’t harm our health, they might make you feel older, unattractive and nervous to look
at yourself in the mirror. If those bags under your eyes are the last
thing you want to see in the morning, keep watching today’s video as we tell you about
the 17 best ways to get rid of those annoying bags under the eyes. Don’t forget to subscribe to bestie and

enzyme catecholase, which can get rid of that bagginess and diminish dark circles. Just cut about four to six half-inch-thick
slices large enough to cover the eye area. Lie down and place one slice on each eye for
about 10 minutes; repeat with fresh slices on each eye until you notice under-eye puffiness
reduced. Wash the area when finished and apply coconut
oil. The starch from the potato will draw out toxins
while the coconut oil will take away any dryness from the potato. Green Tea Bags: Green tea contains antioxidants
that rejuvenate the skin around your eyes and help decrease swelling, redness, and puffiness
of the retina. It also contains tannins that help reduce
eye inflammation. Refrigerate the tea bags and place the cold
tea bags on your eyelids for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat the process a few times in a day to
see faster results. Adjusting Sleeping Posture: Yes! Something as simple as changing your sleeping
posture can help prevent under eye bags. Raising your head with an additional pillow
while sleeping on your back can help avoid fluid retention that can lead to under-eye
bags. Honey: Honey is said to contain antimicrobial
and anti-inflammatory benefits. This makes the gooey, sticky sweet stuff a
wonderful under eye de-puffer. Simply apply a small amount lightly with a
fingertip to the eye area before bedtime and let soak in while sleeping. In the morning, you will notice that the shadows
and swelling has gone down. Reduce Salt Intake: One of the major causes
of puffy eyes is the extra salt in your system and extra salt equals water retention. So, cut down on salt during the day, especially
before bed and be sure to drink plenty of water to keep your system flushed. That should help with the eye puffiness. Egg Whites: Egg whites are a great breakfast
helper for bags under the eyes. They work as a natural astringent to temporarily
tighten swollen skin. Take two egg whites directly from the fridge
so your eyes can benefit from the chill, whisk them until smooth and gently apply them under
your eyes with your index or middle finger. Leave on for five to 10 minutes—you may
feel a tightening effect which is totally normal. Once 10 minutes are up, rinse with lukewarm
water. Get Enough Sleep: Have you changed your sleeping
position but still have those bags? Maybe you are not getting enough sleep. When your body lacks sleep, your skin can’t
get the proper restoration and rejuvenation it needs. The bags under your eyes may be a direct result
of not getting enough rest at night. The recommended amount of sleep per night
is seven to eight hours, so try changing up your pre-bedtime routine. You’ve probably heard this before but avoiding
screen time before bed can really help you get a better nights sleep so why not swap
instagram for a book before bed. Cucumber Relief: Cucumbers are a fantastic
natural remedy to get rid of under eye puffiness. They are rich in anti-inflammatory properties
which naturally helps reduce puffy tissues. Take 2 slices of fresh refrigerated cucumber
and place it on your eyes for 25 minutes. Repeat twice daily for best results. Baking Soda: Baking soda has been known to
promote blood flow and reduce bags. It is a natural exfoliant that gives a glow
to the skin under the eyes and it’s fairly easy to use. Mix baking soda with water and soak a few
cotton pads in it. Remove the excess water and place the pads
on your eyes. Leave them on for about 10 to 15 minutes then
remove the pads and rinse your face with cold water. Milk: Milk contains lactic acid, which has
been shown to help reduce puffiness around the eye. Simply soak two cotton balls in cold milk
and then place them under your eyes for a few minutes. Repeat the process as needed. Rose Water: Rose water is rich in Vitamins
C, A and flavonoids, making it a natural astringent with anti-inflammatory, antibacterial properties. With its many benefits for health and beauty,
rose water can help freshen up and rejuvenate the skin to get rid of puffiness under eyes. Dab a little bit of it under the eyes and
see how it works. Aloe Vera Gel: Aloe vera gel is full of antioxidants
and vitamin E, which have been proven to reduce puffiness under eyes. Applying Aloe vera gel leads to increased
circulation which helps flush out fluids sitting underneath your eyes, reducing puffiness and
helping you look awake and refreshed. Avoid Smoking: We don’t wanna sound like
a broken record, but smoking is pretty bad for you. The chemicals found in cigarette smoke are
toxic and can cause significant irritation and damage to the thin, sensitive skin around
your eyes. This irritation and damage can quickly result
in wrinkled, droopy bags under the eyes. By reducing the amount you smoke or stopping
altogether, your likelihood of waking up with those pesky bags will be much less. Coffee: This one seems like the obvious choice
to wake up, but yes! You can erase late nights tired eyes by adding
a dose of coffee to your morning skincare routine. The caffeine in a homemade mask for puffy
eyes acts as a diuretic to reduce swelling and puffiness under the eyes. Whip a teaspoon or two of ground coffee into
an egg white and apply under the eyes. Or if that is too difficult for you, just
try a coffee-infused eye cream and see those eyebags shrink. Chilled Spoons: This may sound like a rather
bizarre tip for under eye bag removal but it has been proven to be fairly useful. The cold spoons tend to reduce swelling under
your eyes and soothe any pain. Store a few metal spoons inside your fridge
and once they’re chilled, place them on the bags under your eyes. The spoons will work like the refrigerated
eye cream, helping to de-puff the eyes. Lemon juice: Lemon juice contains large amounts
of vitamin C which can remove all toxins from your tired and puffy eyes. Lemon also possesses anti-inflammatory properties
which can help you get rid of puffy eyes. Mix lemon juice with fresh tomato juice, soak
cotton balls into the mixture and apply for 10 minutes. Then wash with cool water and see reduced
puffiness under the eyes. Almond Oil: Almond oil contains oleic acid
which helps to nourish the skin. Being rich in protein, fibre and iron it is
extremely helpful to get rid of puffy eyes. Before going to bed, wash your face and apply
almond oil on the delicate under eye area. Massage the oil gently to the affected area. This will help stimulate blood circulation
around your eyes. Make sure you do it every night to achieve
the results you want. Now that you know how to get rid of eye bags,
you don’t have to worry about your appearance or looks anymore in the morning. Have you ever been bothered by under eye bags? Let us know in the comments sections below.
