We want to look good all the time, but for some reasons, each one of us happens to have a bad hair day or not recognize ourselves in the mirror in the morning.
Some of us even have permanent “flaws” (or at least that how we perceive them) that we’d like to vanish into thin air as if they never existed. It can be freckles, or a chubby chin, we’re just not content with their presence.
In this article I’ll give you some tips on how to minimize one of the most bothersome, yet common imperfections – the bags under your eyes.
The good news is they can be totally corrected with minor lifestyle changes and with the appropriate skin care.
Reasons Your Eyes Become Puffy
- Not enough water
- Too much salt
- Not enough quality sleep
It’s as simple as that. The first two alone favor fluid retention, and when combined, the effects are maximal.
Not only your eyes are affected, but you also get those “sausage fingers” that feel uncomfortable sometimes.
That particular area is really sensitive, and as we age, the muscles that hold the tissue weaken.
We can speed up the damaging process by not drinking at least half a gallon of water every day, and having an increased salt intake.
Get Rid of the Bags under Your Eyes
But what exactly should you be doing to minimize the effects?
- Have a water bottle near you and make sure you drink a glass of water every hour.
- Avoid adding salt to your meals, since most ingredients or foods are already filled with it (if you read the amounts listed on the labels, you’ll be amazed).
- Have a daily morning and evening routine for your complexion – this means cleaning, toning, and hydrating your skin twice a day. When you’re pampering the area below the eye, move your finger in a circular motion from the outer corner towards the inner one, and apply mild pressure. This way, you’ll avoid loosening the skin even more.
It’s all that simple! The results you wish for are, most of the times, right beneath your eyes.
Your health is in your hands!
