This text will discuss on the ways in which you can eliminate the problem of baggy eyes. This problem, which is also known under the name puffy eyes, can be very annoying to experience. The problem may even become worse if it is present in the older stage of life. In this period, the elasticity of the eye muscles reduces and causes bulging of the eyes. When this happens, the bulging may appear like the baggy eyes, which actually is not. Although this problem was mostly associated with the older people, younger people experience this problem more and more due to the alcoholism and lack of sleep. Puffy eyes may be caused by edema, which is the place where the fluid gathers up.
There are several steps you can take in order to eliminate baggy eyes and one of them is to increase the amount of water consumed. This will eliminate the chances of fluid retention and decrease the accumulation of the fluid in the body. This is very important step to take, but next, you have to eat right. Try to consume foods that are high in potassium, because it will decrease the amount of the retained water. Foods you should eat are papaya, watermelon, bananas and strawberries. You can also put frozen or chilled tea bags on the affected location, since it will be beneficial on the swelling due to the anti-inflammatory properties. You should remove food that can cause dehydration, since this will lead to water retention and aggravation of the problem. So try to avoid carbonated drinks, alcoholic drinks, excess salt and caffeine. You can also make use of sliced cucumber, which should be used for 15 or 20 minutes. The slices of cucumber should be put on the eyelids or the area under the eyelids and this will decrease the swelling. Facial massages can be a good idea. You can include diluted jojoba oil or almond oil and this will increase the fluid circulation, thus preventing the fluid from gathering. The problem of baggy eyes can be eliminated with the use of Botox injections.
