5 Ways To Improve Eye Bags | Shens Therapeutics

Are you tired of being told that you look ‘tired’ all the time despite your attempts to get consistent restful sleep? While many individuals assume that insufficient sleep, stress, and overworking your body are the only contributors to eye bags, researchers say not. 

According to clinical research, the most common cause of under-eye-bags is natural ageing as older skin becomes too lax and tends to fall or wrinkle. The muscles and tissues around the eye can also weaken and contribute to the baggy look. This weakening allows the fat surrounding the eye to bulge out, creating that bubble-like appearance.

Other than the above, diet, allergies, medical conditions, genetics can also contribute to eye bags. Withal, let us take a deep dive into the causes and solutions of how we can improve the under-eye-bags.

Diet – Cut The Salt


Everyone loves a bit of flavour in their lives. However, too much of a specific flavour, salt, may actually contribute to that tired appearance. Eating a lot of salty food can cause you to retain water and leads to swelling.

By reducing the amount of sodium intake, you can effectively reduce the chances of swelling in the under-eye area and the prominent sag (under-eye puffiness) on the skin. Thus, cutting the salt from your diet can also help to reveal a less-bloated, narrower facial shape and features.

Yes, you are what you eat, but just don’t be too salty about it. 😉

Cold Compression

Have you been trying out countless pricey eye cream brands and realising that it has little effect on alleviating the eye-bags? If you’re looking for a home remedy that doesn’t cost much to try out, here’s one!

Cold compression to an area can help the blood vessels constrict quickly for temporary relief. It could reduce puffiness or overall condition that occurs beneath the lower eyelid if the individual were to apply cold compression religiously.

Some DIY options include a:

  • chilled teaspoon
  • cool cucumber
  • wet washcloth

In short, to avoid your skin from getting too frosty (if you were to apply cold compression directly to the skin), you can try to wrap the cold compression tool with a soft and mildly wet cloth.

Apply Sunscreen Every Day

As mentioned in our previous post, the number cause any skin ageing is sun damage or ultraviolet (UV) ray from the sunlight. Sun exposure harms your skin in two major ways. The UVA (ultraviolet A) rays speed up ageing, while UVB (ultraviolet B) rays burn your skin. Without any forms of protection, it can cause long-term damages like wrinkles, dark pigmentation and sagging of skin. Yes, we are talking about the eye bags. As your skin deteriorates due to sun damages, it loses its elastin and can cause your eye bags condition to worsen.

Withal, many would-be wondering if the sun goes down or you being indoors, do you still need to apply sunscreen? Our answer would be a sounding, yes!

Despite being indoors or heading out on a cloudy day, the harmful ultraviolet rays can still penetrate through the clouds and reach you even when you are staying in. While these damages are milder compared to a full scale exposure from the sun on a blazing hot day, these UV light damages can still speed up your skin’s ageing process.

The application of sunscreen can help to act as a barrier to the sunlight and effectively protect our skin from the UV radiation. For more information about how to pick the best sunscreen, you can click here.

Remove Your Makeup Before Bed

Improving your nightly routine may also help to improve the conditions of your eye bag. In particular, staying true to most of our post, we have mentioned that every beauty regime starts with the notion of cleansing. By removing the makeup, you can adequately reduce the chances of the skin surrounding your eye bag getting irritated, infected to cause further puffiness.

Hence, when you’re sleeping in makeup, you might risk exposing your skin to free radicals, which can cause oxidative stress and speed up skin ageing. 

With all the information above, some ways may take some time to show its effectiveness (cutting down on sodium intake), while some are measures to slow down or improve your current eye bag condition. In the following segment, we would like to introduce a treatment of ours that can dramatically reduce your eye bag in just a few sessions.

Besides the above ways to improve your eye bag condition, we would also like to advise all individuals to get sufficient sleep and keep their bodies hydrated at all times. Hence, individuals can try to consume more vitamin C and collagen-rich food to slow down the skin ageing process.

With that, we hope you have learnt that the formation of the eye bags doesn’t come with just the effect of an accumulation of under-eye fat. The fight against skin ageing plays a big part in slowing down or improving the under-eye bags’ condition.
