Eye bags are referred to as dark circles or eye circles and are formed under the skin of eyes due to several reasons. Lack of sleep, inadequate nutrients in the diet, aging, anxiety and tension are few of the major causes of eye bags. Generally, the skin around the eyes is very deficient and that is why they are prone to sagging, discolouring and eventually become dark circles. So do they need extra care? Well, one need not take special care or measures but there are a very few simple measures to get rid or prevent yourself from these eye bags. Some of them are:
The first and very important measure is to have proper sleep. It is generally advisable to take 8 hours of sleep. Therefore adequate amount of sleep will definitely help in curbing these eye bags. A rich and balanced diet is as important as the amount of sleep. Iron-rich food should be made a major constituent of the daily diet. Salty, processed and sugary food should be thoroughly restricted. It is not only good for eyes but also helps you develop any metabolic disease.
Beside watching what you eat, it is necessary to regulate the circulation of blood in the body. Exercise is the best way to do this. A daily workout or a brisk walk of 30 minutes should have made a part of the daily period to improve the blood circulation. For those who smoke, quitting smoking may be of also great help.
Place a cool cucumber or a potato slice over your eyes for some time. This would help in relaxing your eye lids and encouraging proper blood flow. After trying all these easy measures, some supplements can also be used. An eye gel made of natural ingredients will help to retain moisture the eyes and will not only help in maintaining the smoothness of the delicate skin around eyes but will also help in reducing the under eye bags. A chemical called peptide helps in the formation of new cells and an antioxidant helps in reducing the eye circles, when these are blended together they give excellent results. So an eye cream or gel can be used which is composed of these two chemicals, namely peptide and antioxidant.
