How to Get Rid of Eye Bags: Our Top Tips

All of the following are proven ways in which both men and women can reduce the appearance of eye bags, no matter the root cause:

  • Tea Bags – Any type of caffeinated tea bags can be used for this purpose but green tea bags are particularly effective. Simply steep 2 tea bags in hot water for 3-5 minutes, chill in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes then apply to each under-eye area. Leave them in place for 20-30 minutes, then remove and rinse your skin. You can follow this routine whenever your eye bags start to look bad or as a preventative measure 2-3 times a week.
  • Nasal Irrigation – Many people find that cleaning out their sinuses with a saltwater solution does wonders for the bags under their eyes, in addition to relieving congestion. It may not work for everyone but as it is cheap and easy to try, it is well worth considering.
  • Cold Compress – Whether you use a bag of frozen vegetables (wrapped in a cloth to prevent frostbite), a wet flannel or slices of cucumber, you may find that a cold compress helps to reduce the visible appearance of eye bags.
  • Dermal Fillers – Micro injections of hyaluronic acid in the tear troughs are a highly effective, non-invasive treatment option for eye bags, which can be tried at cosmetic specialists in the UK and elsewhere. We offer this particular treatment at our central London clinics so if you are interested, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more details.
  • Improved Hydration – If you don’t always drink as much water as you should, you may find that simply hydrating more regularly will help to reduce the appearance of the bags under your eyes.
