Blast Those Bags Under Your Eyes

Loose, baggy skin under your eyes...we all dread it. (Gordon Brown, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom especially never heard the end of it after this picture!) But the real question is, how do we prevent it?

I caught a short segment on Dr. Oz today where he and a couple of dermatologists talked about the best ways to prevent those pesky bags/dark circles under your eyes. Some of the inexpensive tips included:
  • Sleeping with your head elevated
  • Ice packs/cool tea bags applied to the eye/under-eye area
  • Antihistamines - many times allergies induce puffiness and redness (consult a doctor before trying)
  • Sunscreen (your skin can discolor under the eyes from sun exposure)
  • And, of course, sleep!
May your days now be filled with bag-free eyes!
