Under Eye Treatments

With finals right around the corner and a few other stressful things that have suddenly emerged (more on that later), you could say my face has taken quite the toll as of late. From breakouts to under eye circles, I am really wanting to give my body a little TLC this weekend to make up for my little sleep these past few weeks. One thing I've realized is the noticeable under eye bags that I've never really had before. Sure, I've stayed up late one night and had little bags the next day, but right now they don't seem to be going away (probably because I have been getting a lot less sleep than I'm used to). I've researched a few different at home treatments for under eye bags and thought I would share them with you!


+ Cut back on salt
Dinner loaded with salt often leaves puffiness under your eyes, so put down the salt shaker!


+ Sleep on your back
Do you sleep on your side or on your stomach? Try sleeping on your back and add an extra pillow under your head to make sure gravity doesn't cause fluid to collect under your eyes (causing the bags).


+ Take your makeup off before bed
This may seem obvious, but sometimes leaving a little residue on your face could cause a morning of face puffiness. Use soap and water or makeup remover to see the best results.


+ Give your eyes a cool down
You know how some spas apply cucumbers on your eyes? A cold compress can compress puffiness, so try chilled spoons, sliced cucumbers or tea bags. It isn't as much what you use, but how low the temperature is that will do the work. This method is said to have the best results!


Do you have any other tricks you use that work well for under eye bags?
Share them below! I bet we could all benefit :)

  1. Taking off your makeup is such an important part of taking care of your skin! I also fully agree with cooling your eyes down, when I've had a really stressful week I try to do a facemask with some cucumber slices-it totally refreshes me!

  2. Ok this has nothing to do with under eye puffiness (although I really need to try some of these methods!), but whoever that girl in that pic is has AMAZING hair. Wow, goals

  4. Recent case studies found that eye doctors are the first health care providers who can detect the signs of chronic systemic conditions.
