Choose organic skin care

Under eye bags can be caused by many things, but a common cause is an imbalance in the body, especially if you've never had them before. Ingredients such as synthetics, parabens, and silicones have a detrimental effect on the body.

In a study conducted by T├Ženk Kemi in Denmark, substances suspected of being endocrine disruptors and harmful to health were found in three out of four beauty products.

But what does this have to do with under-eye bags ?

Hormonal imbalance is a common cause of under eye bags.

That's why you should always choose skin care products that are free of harmful substances.

Eye cream is better than a good night's sleep.

I'm sure you're thinking, what does she mean now? Poor sleep is a cause of under-eye bags!

That's absolutely true. They can appear when you haven't slept well. This is because the body has a harder time getting rid of excess fluid. But puffiness can also be caused by sleeping too much.

That's why you need to prevent dark circles under your eyes with customized skin care products. 

Let me explain why eye cream is the best solution for you:

  • It is time-efficient: While a good night's sleep can help you get rid of dark circles under your eyes, those 9 hours should also appear at bedtime. Preferably, several nights in a row. An eye cream works immediately, without the need for quality sleep.

  • Your skin is nourished: an eye cream gives tired skin a new glow and gives it the strength to glow all day.

  • It counteracts the first signs of aging. Nothing is worse than newly discovered wrinkles around the eyes. An eye cream that reduces puffiness contains ingredients that tighten and strengthen the skin from within, so new wrinkles are a thing of the past.

  • It has an anti-aging effect: an eye cream can reduce the wrinkles already visible under the eyes by deeply moisturizing the skin.

Why do you have bags under your eyes?

Under eye bags can be temporary or permanent. Temporary bags can be caused by allergies, poor eating habits, alcohol, smoking, stress, or lack of sleep. Even too much sleep can cause them. In the morning, you may feel as if your eyes are puffy. This is because when you lie down for a long time, fluid builds up around your eyes. The hormone estrogen binds water, so women during their period can feel very puffy around the eyes.

Permanent puffiness is caused by genes, hereditary characteristics, and aging of the skin. The elasticity of the skin decreases due to the fact that collagen production decreases with age. The earth's gravity also plays an important role. Gravity weighs on everything on earth, and therefore on our skin. As we age, the elasticity of our skin, fat, and muscles weakens. The muscles no longer have the strength to support the skin as they did when you were younger. Collagen is a protein that structures cells, and as we age, collagen weakens and the skin becomes looser. Wrinkles and bags appear under the eyes. Gravity weighs on the skin so that wrinkles and bags become more visible.

Treatments for bags under the eyes

The skin under the eyes is very thin and sensitive, so it's important to protect it there. To treat undereye bags, a good eye cream that suits you is a good start. There are many choices on the market, and there are bound to be products that appeal to you. Read the table of contents carefully. Active ingredients such as retinol, vitamin C, and peptides are good if they are included in the cream. A sun protection factor can also be helpful, especially if you spend a lot of time in the sun.

Good eating habits are important. Excessive salt intake accumulates fluid and becomes more visible where the skin is thin. The skin around the eyes is elastic, and bags easily form if fluid accumulates in the area around the eyes. Salt less and remember that the food you buy may contain a lot of salt. Eat more vegetables and fruits that contain antioxidants. Vitamin C and magnesium are good. Also, reduce your sugar intake. When there is too much sugar in the diet, it binds to the skin tissue. This worsens the function of the tissue because the sugar settles like a blanket over the cells. The cells have difficulty renewing themselves and the skin becomes wrinkled and flabby. Even excessive coffee consumption is not good for the body. Caffeine affects the body's water balance, and you can become dehydrated. Coffee in moderation can help you remove caffeine from the bags under your eyes.

Drink plenty of water. Fluids also come from solid foods, but we need to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water a day so that the kidneys can effectively cleanse the body and stabilize the water balance.

Avoid alcohol, smoking and stress. They affect the water balance and interfere with the conditions for good and sufficient sleep. The muscles of the body relax due to poor sleep, and this is also a cause of sagging skin around the eyes. The recommended amount of sleep is 7 to 9 hours per night.

Sleep Well

Tips for sleeping well:

  • Do not drink alcohol or caffeinated beverages at least 6 hours before bedtime.
  • Don't eat two hours before bedtime.
  • Don't exercise a few hours before bedtime.
  • Turn off the TV and don't use the phone or tablet an hour before bedtime.
  • Go to bed at the same time every day.
  • Exercise regularly. It helps with poor circulation, stress and sleep problems.

Treatments you can do at home

There are many things you can do at home in simple ways:

  1. Nasal rinsing: Cleaning the old remnants of colds and allergies can help eliminate dark circles under the eyes. Tip: Boil 0.5 liters of water and add a teaspoon of salt. Cool the water to body temperature before using it. Take a nasal rinse jar and pour the salt water into it. Tilt your head with one cheek down into the sink or sink. Place the spout of the jar in your right nostril and pour the saline solution into your nostril. Breathe in through your mouth and allow the water to flow into the other nostril. Do the same with the other nostril.

  2. Put the eye cream in the refrigerator. It has a cooling effect when you apply it and reduces swelling.

  3. A cold teaspoon can be gently pressed on the skin under the eyes. A jade stone gua sha spoon is another option that helps the lymphatic system and drains the fluid under the eyes. Or how about the classic cucumber slices on the eyes? The cold reduces swelling as the blood vessels contract.

  4. Soak two tea bags in hot water for a few minutes. Let the tea bags cool in the refrigerator. Then put them on your eyes as an eye mask for 20 minutes. The tannins in the tea have an inflammatory effect, and the caffeine attracts fluids.

  5. Coffee grounds: Also try coffee grounds and some aloe vera, which have a calming and moisturizing effect. Put it under your eyes for 15 minutes, then rinse gently with water.

 The right skin care routine and skin care products make a big difference.

Using the wrong skin care products with ingredients that the skin reacts to or to greasy creams can stress the skin. Also, be sure to avoid using eye cream. It is important to remove makeup before going to bed. Otherwise, it can damage the skin and expose it to premature aging.

Swelling and puffiness may be due to an allergy. In this case, there are over-the-counter medications that help.

Collagen is a protein in the body that is important for connective tissue and strengthens bones and skin. As we age, collagen production decreases, and the skin can lose its elasticity.

Balanced Diet

It is possible to increase collagen in a natural way, especially with certain foods:

  • Fish, especially the skin, and shellfish contain collagen.
  • Garlic can help prevent the breakdown of collagen in the body.
  • Egg whites contain hyaluronic acid and other important amino acids that are necessary for collagen production in the body.
  • Broth is made from connective tissue and bones. It contains collagen, calcium, magnesium, amino acids, and many other nutrients.
  • Tomatoes contain vitamin C and antioxidants that are good for the skin.
  • Beans contain a lot of protein and other nutrients, including copper, which is necessary for collagen production.
  • Spirulina is composed of amino acids, which are important building blocks of collagen.
  • Cashews are rich in zinc and copper, which help the body produce collagen.
  • Raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, and cranberries contain antioxidants, such as vitamin C, which protect the skin from external environmental influences.
  • Citrus fruits contain vitamin C which is important for collagen production.
