How to get rid of bags under eyes for women

Looking in the mirror and seeing dark circles under the eyes and puffiness can be alarming. There are simple methods which you can use to reduce unsightly bags under your eyes and transform the old, tired look into a fresher, more youthful appearance. Try these natural tips to minimise dark, swollen eyes.

Fresh cucumber slices

One of the best natural cures for bags under the eyes is probably in your refrigerator. Cucumber slices can be used to reduce puffiness and freshen eyes. Cool and anti-inflammatory effect They have a cooling, anti-inflammatory effect on tissue and are great for reducing swelling. Swollen eyes are often the result of fluid retention. As a source of hydration, cucumber naturally helps to balance fluid levels. Source of vitamin C This natural treatment is also a great source of vitamin C, which is beneficial for under eye wrinkles. Vitamin C is needed for the production of new collagen. Application
To use, lay very thin slices of cucumber over the eyelids. Thicker slices will be too rigid and will not allow the cucumber flesh to rest against the skin. Leave them on for 10-15 minutes to refresh and revitalise the skin. Use this natural cooling treatment as often as is necessary.

Soothing tea bags

Another method for getting rid of bags under the eyes involves the application of used tea bags. This is another traditional cure for dark circles and puffiness. Natural astringent
As with the cucumber slices, this method is safe and soothing and can be done frequently for relief. The tannins in either black and green tea act as a natural astringent, constricting blood vessels and tightening tissue. Application To use tea bags, first brew the tea in freshly boiled water for about ten minutes. Squeeze out the excess fluid. If desired you can wrap the bags in a thin cloth to protect your skin. Otherwise, be sure to keep the eyes closed during treatment. Lay the bags directly on closed eyes for about 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Cool tea bags Another more refreshing method involves using cool tea bags. Instead of applying directly to the eyes, first place in the refrigerator overnight. The next morning when puffiness under the eyes tends to be the worst, lay the bags on the eyes for 10-15 minutes. Final word Both of these treatments to reduce dark circles and puffy, swollen eyes are very easy to use and very effective. Try using two to three times a week until you notice an improvement. Moreover, be sure you are drinking plenty of water to support healthy, hydrated skin.
