Why do I have bags under my eyes?

Bags under the eyes are a common concern and can be caused by several factors, including aging, weakened muscles and tissues, fluid retention due to allergies or hormonal changes, genetics, lack of sleep, lifestyle, and sun exposure leading to collagen breakdown. While it may not be possible to completely eliminate under eye bags, strategies such as getting enough sleep, managing allergies, using cold compresses, and having a good de-puffing eye cream or serum in your skincare routine can help reduce their appearance. Lancôme’s eye creams and serums are loved for their exceptional ability to reduce under eye puffiness. They are specifically designed to target puffy under eyes and under eye bags, helping to visibly smooth, firm, and de-puff the appearance of the eye area.

What causes puffy under eyes?

Under eye puffiness, also known as under eye bags or eye bags and puffy eyes, can be caused by several factors, including:

Fluid Retention: Fluid can accumulate in the under-eye area, leading to puffiness. This can be caused by factors such as allergies, sinus congestion, hormonal changes, salt intake, or dehydration.

Lack of Sleep: Insufficient sleep or poor sleep quality can cause fluid to accumulate in the under-eye area, resulting in puffiness.

Chronological Aging: As we age, the muscles and tissues supporting the eyelids weaken, causing fat to accumulate and protrude, leading to puffy under eyes.

Genetics: Some individuals are genetically predisposed to having puffy under eyes. If your parents or close relatives have puffy under eyes, you may be more likely to develop them as well.

Lifestyle Factors: Certain lifestyle habits, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and a diet high in sodium, can contribute to fluid retention and puffy under eyes.

Allergies: Allergic reactions can cause inflammation and fluid retention, leading to puffiness under the eyes.

Sinus Congestion: When the sinuses are congested, it can cause fluid to accumulate in the under-eye area, resulting in puffiness.

Crying or Emotional Stress: Tears and emotional stress are known to cause blood vessels to dilate and fluid to accumulate, leading to temporary puffiness under the eyes.

This is not a substitution for medical advice. If you have persistent or severe puffiness, consult with your healthcare professional.

How do you get rid of puffy under eyes?

To get rid of puffy under eyes, you can try various methods. Applying a cold compress, like chilled spoons or cucumber slices, is known to constrict blood vessels and reduce puffiness. Gently massaging the under-eye area, getting enough sleep and hydration, elevating your head while sleeping, and managing allergies can all contribute to reducing eye bags and puffy eyes. Using eye creams or serums, like our Absolue Eye Cream formulated with Linseed Extract and Pro-XylaneTM for smoothing & de-puffing, or our Advanced Génifique Eye Cream formulated with Vitamin Cg and Hyaluronic Acid for hydration & brightening, are specially formulated to help reduce under eye puffiness and are highly effective in diminishing the appearance of under eye bags and puffy eyes. Achieve a more refreshed and youthful appearance around the eye contour with Lancôme’s eye treatments for puffy under eyes.
