As bizarre as it sounds, eye bags may be a growing beauty trend in certain parts of the world (that’s right, the bigger it is, the more ‘youthful’ you will look but don’t take our word for it). But to many, they are just signs of sleep deprivation. Lack of sleep is not the only factor that contributes to the bags underneath your eyes, it could also be allergies as well as excessive salt or sodium intake that your body is still trying to digest.

As it’s fluid retention caused by the factors above, de-puffing is possible but it’s not just a one-and-done application. Lifestyle and sleeping hours need to be reconsidered and with a proper eye cream — consider them gone. Ingredients like caffeine can help tighten the skin, while green tea reduces swelling. These are key ingredients that make eye cream effective.

Just keep in mind that the same does not apply to moisturisers. As the skin is more delicate and thin around the eye areas, applying a large sum of moisturiser will not help. Keep it light and delicate, massage the eye cream in with your ring finger so that it doesn’t damage the skin and cause even more wrinkles.

Here are seven eye creams to help reduce the appearance of eye bags.
