Why do I have big bags under my eyes? As you get older, connective tissues start
to sag. The skin under your eyes is sagging along with your boobs, your butt and chin. I’m not old enough to look like I need a face
lift! Dark circle eyes under your eyes are commonly
caused by a lack of sleep. They can be the result of seasonal allergies. I’ve heard of puffy eyes resulting from allergies.
Some people even have their eyes swell shut, but I’m not having allergies. If you were, I’d say go take some anti-histamines.
Have you been crying a lot? Uh, no. I’m not that upset about how I look. The reason I bring it up is that crying can
make your eyes look puffy. What’s another cause, a reasonable one? If you have a sinus infection, the buildup
of fluid in the nasal cavity can cause the eyes to look puffy via osmosis. What can I do to treat it? Get enough sleep and use cold compresses.
If fluid regularly builds up around the eyes every night, sleep with more pillows under
your head. How does that help? Fluid collects where it can, due to gravity.
If you are somewhat upgright, it will flow toward your neck or lower face, instead of
your eyes. I don’t think that’s right. If you sleep on your side, does the downward
side look puffier than the other in the morning? I’ll have to check tomorrow morning. If you do have puffy eyes, there are a lot
of over the counter treatments for it. I’ve heard that using a neti pot could help. Are you sterilizing that neti pot between
uses? If not, you could be introducing last month’s bacteria back into your nose along
with anything else growing on it, and a neti pot won’t help unless you have a cold or sinus
infection. That is disgusting! No, disgusting is the guy who used untreated
water from a stream in his neti pot and got brain eating amoeba from it. So don’t assume
natural is better. This is so complicated. You could also avoid things that dehydrate
your body and your skin, like getting drunk and sleeping with makeup on. Both dehydrate
the skin and make it sag. Actually, I might have been guilty of both
of those this weekend.
