Tired looking eyes, with bags under them, and dark circles are common problems, with many causes. There are ways to avoid them and treatments to reduce and control them. You can opt for good under eye bags cream and other skin care products from reputed names like Kaya.
Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes - Causes
       Dark circles and puffy eyes can be the result of heredity. Some people are genetically prone to this problem
       Puffy eyes and dark circles can be caused by excessive alcohol consumption
       Certain allergies can also trigger this issue
       Medical conditions like Hypothyroidism can be a cause
       Tiredness and lack of sleep are common causes
       Eating salty food causes fluid retention, giving you puffy eyes
       Ageing causes the already thin skin around the eyes to become thinner, and the blood vessels under the skin become more visible, giving the appearance of dark eyes
       The breakdown of fatty tissue and collagen also causes under eye area to become hollow and appear dark
       Fatty tissue that provide protection to the bones around the eyes can break apart with age and push up the skin, creating bags under the eyes
       Rubbing your eyes, crying, sleeping on one side at night can all cause puffiness around your eyes
       Hyperpigmentation can result in dark circles
How to Prevent and Treat Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles
       Avoid or reduce alcohol consumption
       You can have a clinical test done to detect any food or other allergies. You can also try and detect these on your own, if you find that you experience puffy eyes, watery eyes or any other eye irritation after consuming a particular food, avoid it in the future
       You can also have periodic health checkups and test for conditions like hypothyroidism
       Avoid rubbing your eyes
       If you usually sleep on your right side and your right eyes regularly looks swollen in the morning, try sleeping on your back
       Avoid eating a lot of salty food. This causes water retention and results in puffy eyes
       Use sunscreens and wear sunglasses when you go out during the day. This can reduce sun damage and hyperpigmentation
       Include a lot of healthy food like carrots, spinach, orange, kiwi, and grapefruit in your diet
       Get a good night’s sleep. This will help your body recover after your day’s routine
       If you have a tight schedule, try and take short beaks and naps in between. This can also help prevent fatigue and dark circles
Some Simple Remedies
       Cut a couple of slices of cucumber, chill them, and place one over each eye. Lie back and rest for around ten minutes. Cucumber helps cool and soothe your eyes and reduces inflammation
       Chill a couple of steel spoons in the freezer. Place one over each eye to soothe your irritated eyes
       Eat a banana after you have consumed a lot of salty food. The potassium content in the banana helps regulate sodium levels in the body. This is a simple and natural eye bags removal technique, by controlling salt levels and thus reducing fluid retention
       You can also use potatoes and their skin lightening and astringent properties to treat puffy eyes and dark circles. You can extract the juice of a potato, soak cotton balls in them and place these cotton balls over your eyes. You can also slice potatoes, soak them in water, and then place them over your eyes
