Eye Bags & Dark Cirkles: Causes, Prevention and Natural Cure

Actually, a variety of factors may causes of puffiness, dark circles and under- eye bags.

These include:

  • Aging process;
  • Allergies;
  • Heredity;
  • Hormonal issues;
  • Lack of sleep;
  • Nutritional deficiencies,
  • Fatigue;
  • Stress;
  • Sun exposure.

In some cases, under-eye bags are a sign of kidney problems.

The skin around the eyes is very thin and delicate and needs special care.

Here are some simple home remedies that help to get rid of puffiness, dark circles and eye bags:


Used tea bags is the best treatment to baggy eyes. Keep two used tea bags in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. Lay down and put the tea bags over the puffy eyes. Leave as long as possible, or at least for 20 minutes.


Potato juice is a great skin lightener. Peel and grate raw potato, squeeze out excess juice, and wrap in a piece of thin cotton cloth.

Apply to the area right under your eyes (with it closed). Leave the compress on for 10-20 minutes. Wash your eyes with cold water.


Dip some cotton in a raw cucumber juice and leave it in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. Place over closed eyes and leave on for 30 minutes.

To prevent puffiness, dark circles and under- eye bags, it is important to:

  • take food rich in calcium, iron, minerals;
  • have plenty of good sleep;
  • take 1 tbsp. of raw lemon juice diluted in a glass of warm water everyday in the morning;
  • avoid fast food and processed foods;

Removal of chronic eye bag is also done with a plastic surgery, called blepharoplasty.
