What are the bags under the eyes?
First, you need to look at the bags under your eyes to see if there is inflammation or if it is simply a darker area (dark circles). In this way, you can figure out which treatment is indicated to use and which internal organ needs to be better cared for.
There are also effective natural remedies against either of the two types of bags under the eyes, which we present in this article.
At the same time, it is important to notice if the bags under the eyes are permanent or if they only appear on certain days, after consuming in excess certain foods or drinks. This information helps you prevent this problem and treat it properly.
Treatments for bags under the eyes
If the bags under your eyes look swollen, as do your eyelids, you may be suffering from water retention, which means that your kidneys are not working properly. It may be an occasional problem, which occurs after eating a lot of salt at the table or a chronic one, caused by a kidney disease.
If you press on the bags under the eyes, you will see if there is a liquid underneath, because the swelling will disappear for a second, after which it will reappear. The most effective treatments for bags under the eyes are those that aim to treat the cause of the problem.
To reduce bags under the eyes and improve kidney function, follow the tips below:
- Apply used green tea sachets to the eyes. You can keep them in the freezer first to enjoy the benefits of ice.
- Rest a little with your eyes closed, on which you put the tea bags.
- You can also opt for slices of raw potato or cucumber, to get the same effect.
- In the meantime, make sure you drink enough water, at least 8 glasses a day, between meals.
- To improve your kidney function, drink onion and celery soup and dandelion and burdock teas.
- If you have low back pain, you can apply an electric blanket or a bag of hot water half an hour before bed.
Dark circles are purple, brown or even black circles that appear under the eyes, which indicate that you suffer from liver or biliary diseases. You can cover them with cosmetics, but this is not a solution to treat the health problem that led to their appearance.
To improve the functioning of the liver and gallbladder, consider the following recommendations:
- Start the day with a cup of warm water mixed with the juice of half a lemon.
- Avoid unhealthy fats, such as fried foods, commercial pastries, margarine and sausages.
- Have dinner early and opt for light foods.
- Completely eliminate refined sugar from your diet and replace it with honey, stevia, agave, etc.
- Give up harmful habits such as smoking and alcohol.
- Before going to bed, drink a tea of bitter herbs (artichoke, boldo, dandelion, armurariu). You can also consume these plants in the form of supplements.
- Every evening, apply a few drops of rosehip oil around the eyes, massaging them lightly into the skin. This oil contains antioxidants and is invigorating.
Other treatments for bags under the eyes
