If you've noticed bags and dark circles just under your eyes, then you're definitely not alone and it's not something that just older people deal with. Anyone over the age of 20 is likely to experience dark or puffy eyes at some point, but it is fact that the older you get the more often they'll be there. No matter what age you experience them, nobody likes to see them and they can make you look more tired and older than you actually are. There are a few different factors that lead to bags or dark shadows under the eyes:
- Lack of sleep
- Lack of exercise
- Water retention
- High-salt diet
- Sinus infections
- Ageing skin
Bags and dark circles are most likely to occur due to fluid accumulating in the area under the eyes where our skin is at its thinnest. What appears is a blue/black/purple tint that creates a circle under the eye that is actually the blood passing through the veins that are located just below the surface of the skin.
As we get older, the bags and dark circles just become more of a permanent fixture, but it's a natural part of ageing that we can only try to prevent. We all have fat in our faces that's held in place by muscles and ligaments. As we get older however, these muscles and ligaments begin to sag - making the fat more visible. A similar thing happens within our skin as our collagen levels deplete. This therefore causes the skin to lose its elasticity and sag.
