Meet the new OptimaLift A+ Intelligent Eye Revitaliser 2.0
Bags or baggage under the eyes occur when weakened and sagging skin relaxes, forming a pouch. As we age, the tissues around our eyes, including some of the muscles supporting our eyelids, weaken. The fats that help support the eyes will then move into the under eye region, causing our eyes to appear puffy. Fluid may also accumulate and worsen the swell, creating the appearance of eye bags.
Here are several factors that cause or may worsen this effect:
Many people have puffy eyes simply because this trait runs in their family. Some products may be effective in reducing the appearance of puffiness but the way to reduce their appearance in the long term is to make a few lifestyle changes e.g. cutting back on salty foods, reducing chronic stress and quitting smoking.
With ageing, the fatty tissues that ordinarily protect the eyes within the eye sockets begin to push forward and fill in the spaces below the eyes, causing eye puffiness.
This occurs as skin ageing causes thinning of the membrane or “septum” that usually holds the fat in both the upper and lower eyelids. As this happens, the fat herniates and pushes forward, causing the appearance of puffy eyes and eyebags.
- Sinus problems and allergic reactions
Congestion in your sinuses leads to congestion in the veins under your eyes, causing blood to pool under your eyes. These swollen veins then dilate and darken, creating the appearance of dark under eye circles and puffiness.
Puffy eyes may also be caused by an allergic reaction when the protective cells in your eyes (mast cells) secretes immune proteins (histamine) to fight allergens. This causes your eyes to become sensitive and watery, which leads to the puffiness.
Tears are more watery and less salty than the tissues surrounding our eyes. So, through the process of osmosis, water moves into the saltier ocular tissues, which causes our eyes to swell up.
Not to mention, we tend to rub our eyes to hide the fact that we’re crying, and to wipe away our tears, which only inflames our eyes even further.
- Sleep, or a lack thereof
We don’t blink while we’re sleeping, and this is part of the reason why our eyes may appear puffy in the morning.
Blinking for eyelids is like walking for legs. Some people develop swelling in their lower extremities that goes away as soon as they start walking and muscles in the legs begin “milking” the trapped fluids (oedema), which are absorbed back into circulation.
A similar action takes place in the eyelids. The closed, non-blinking eyelids during sleep can potentially swell up so in the mornings, you could wake up with puffy eyes. However, when you wake up and start your day, the puffiness goes away naturally.
