Bags Under the Eyes And Dark Circles

Eye Bags and Dark Circles

There are a variety of factors that can lead to dark circles and the formation of bags under the eyes. Extreme fatigue, age, and allergies can all contribute to dark circles and bags under your eyes, making you appear older and more tired. While bags under the eyes and dark circles are difficult to get rid of, Phyto-C Skin Care by Phytoceuticals, Inc. offers a wide variety of high-quality Vitamin C products that can help reduce their appearance. Our products build collagen to strengthen the skin beneath your lower eyelids, lessening the appearance of bags under the eyes and dark circles.

Understanding Under-Eye Bags and Dark Circles

Common symptoms of under-eye bags and dark circles include:

  • Hyperpigmentation of the area directly under your lower eyelids
  • Puffiness under the eyes
  • Saggy or loose skin
  • Mild swelling of the lower eyelids area
  • Blue appearance of the skin surrounding your eyes

Sleep deprivation is a major cause of formation of under-eye bags and dark circles under your lower eyelids. This is because blood vessels dilate when you don’t get enough sleep. The dilated blood vessels increase blood flow to certain areas, like the areas underneath your eyes. Because the under-eye area is thinner, increased blood flow is more visible, resulting in dark circles and under-eye bags.

Aging is another natural but common cause of under-eye bags and dark circles. As we age, we tend to lose the collagen and fat needed to maintain skin’s elasticity. This means that skin becomes thinner, therefore exposing the dark blood vessels underneath that cause a darkened appearance.

Popular Products for Under-Eye Bags and Dark Circles

Using the right products for treating bags under the eyes and dark circles can make all the difference in how people look and feel about their appearance.

Common FAQs About Eye Bags and Dark Circles

  • How can I get rid of dark circles under the eyes?

Because everyone’s physical chemistry, skin tone, and genetic makeup is different, finding the right product for your under eye dark circles may take some trial and error. Keep in mind that consistency and maintenance will result in a better outcome than using these products occasionally.   

  • Can dark circles be a sign of illness?

In most cases, dark circles under the eyes are not indicative of a serious medical condition. However, if swelling and discoloration appear under one eye and seems to only get worse with time, it may be a good idea to consult your physician.

  • Can Phyto-C skin care products help reduce under-eye bags and dark circles?

Yes! Phyto-C makes products with Hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, Green Tea Extract and Aloe Vera. These ingredients can significantly reduce the appearance of dark circle and under- eye bags if used appropriately and consistently.
