    bags under eyes

    Hey...was wondering if anyone has found anything that helps reduce bags under the eyes? Mine are minor, but I would still like to get rid of them. Thanks.

    You can try freezing a spoon and putting it on the swollen area for as long as you can... or ice like Jennyvee said.
    Also, washing your face with as cold water as you can handle for about 5 minutes is supposed to reduce them. It's hard to do but it works.
    Basically applying anything cold will help a lot.

    Re: bags under eyes

    Dark circles under eyes (Dark eye circles) are caused by lack of sleep, fatigue, or some deficiency. Eight hours of sleep is essential. Do not leave cream on the skin around the eyes for long periods.

    | Dark Circles Under Eyes, Dark Eye Circles Remedy

    Dark (Black ) Circles under eyes


    Drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.

    Dark Circles under eye are generally due to a lack of sleep, fatigue, stress, deficiency or some disease. Take all precautions to avoid strain on the eyes.

    Eight hours of sleep is a must for all of us, specially for people having dark circles under their eyes.

    Close your eyes and cover eyelids with slices of raw potato or cucumber for 15-20 minutes. Wash with warm water and apply a cream.

    Grate a cucumber, squeeze to take out its juice and refrigerate. Make a mixture of lemon juice, lanolin cream and cucumber juice and apply around the eye for 10-15 minutes.

    Apply lemon juice on the black circles 2 times a day.

    Apply a paste of turmeric powder with pineapple juice for dark circles under the eyes.


    Apply crushed mint around the eye.

    Apply almond oil under eyes.

    Almond helps to remove dark circles, and is an excellent "skin food". Remove the cream applied around the eye after 10 min. No cream should be left on the skin around the eyes for long periods.

    Rub the area with a powdered Vitamin E capsule. and wipe off with a mixture of honey and egg white.

    Puffiness of Eyes: Apply vitamin E or olive oil.

    For better Vision:

    Eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A.

    Immerse carrot leave in hot water and leave for a few minutes. Drink the liquid 3 times a day before meals.

    Take Ginkgo.

    Try chamomile tea bags cooled over eyes.
