How To Prevent Eye Bags
Q: I would like to know how to prevent eye bags. What would you recommend?
A: Well, if you’re trying to prevent them (and don’t currently have them) that is a good sign! Because once you get them, it can be difficult to get rid of them. As with all problems in life, prevention is the best solution, but can you really prevent eye bags? Let’s find out…
Causes You Can’t Control
Unfortunately, some of the biggest causes of eye bags are something you cannot control. Just like heredity determines what your skin type is and what your eye shape is, it also has a lot to do with the formation of bags under eyes due to aging.
In fact, you can compare eye bag puffiness to wrinkles – they have a lot of similarities. There are obviously things you can do to prevent them, but at the end of the day, your genetics plays a big part in them too. That’s why some people age gracefully seemingly without trying, while some others are more susceptible.
Causes You Can Control
So one of the biggest causes is something you cannot control, therefore it may be impossible to prevent eye bags entirely. However there are a few known behaviors that contribute to aging.
Getting plenty of sleep is vital – your body produces essential hormones while you’re asleep. Cell renewal takes place during this time. Therefore it’s important to get your eight hours, as hard as that can be.
Poor lifestyle choices can also be things that can accelerate problems. If you want to do everything you can to prevent eye bags, that means you shouldn’t smoke, drink lightly and infrequently (or not at all), and eat healthy along with a physical regimen you routinely follow.
Fortunately if you already have them, there are a number of solutions nowadays for eye bag removal. If you don’t have them, you’re best bet would be to follow the above advice and add anti aging vitamins to your daily routine. Remember, with proper care you can look great for many years to come!
