  • Get Rid Of Dark Eye Bags
    By Health Blog on June 3, 2009 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments

    Even the most beautiful of features can be marred by the presence of those dreaded dark eye bags that haunt the eye socket area of the face. Everybody wants to get rid of them, regardless of the gender or age. 

    While usually we associate them to lack of sleep, they could also be caused by impurities in the blood, digestive disorders, they may be hereditary and can also be an affect of ageing.

    Although there is no proof of the validity of the ages old remedy of placing cucumber or potato  slices on the eye bags for fifteen to twenty minutes daily. Some even do that for a longer time. It has been known to work and one of the reasons why it has been around for so long and is so popular. Besides, anything natural rarely has any side effects.

    Other ways to solve the problem include heating and applying olive oil through cotton buds on the lower eye-lids. The oil will cure the sogginess and wrinkling of the eye-lid skin. Even applying used & chilled green tea bags on the eye bags is also widely practised. But the tea bags require about five to ten minutes of application to take effect.

    The phenomenon is strange as you will hear scientific circles advising one thing and the masses doing something else. But it certainly concerns a beauty conscious person and developing healthy habits like maintaining a sufficient and balanced liquid in-take, avoiding caffeine, nicotine and too much alcohol, and getting your beauty sleep can avoid dark under-eye bags in the first place.
