10 Home Remedy for Eyebag Removal and find out the fastest solution

How to remove and get rid of eye bags - The Fastest Solution

Scarless eyebag removal surgery in Singapore is often the fastest and most effective solution for people who are trying to deal with stubborn under-eye bags. Although there are many home remedies and eye creams that may help you decrease the swelling in the eye area, they are usually not long-term solutions.

The fastest way to get rid of the eye bags permanently is with a procedure that targets the excess skin beneath the eyes. You can schedule an appointment with a surgeon to find out if you are a suitable candidate for the Korean-Style Scarless Eye Bag Removal surgery.

It is a simple procedure which involves making a small incision near the lash line. This technique does not leave any scars and is performed under local anaesthesia. The recovery time is quick and usually not associated with any serious complications. You can only expect some mild bruising and discomfort, but they will disappear in 2-3 days.

Scarless eyebag removal surgery takes only ten minutes per eyelid for the surgery to create an incredibly striking difference in your appearance. It is your chance to make way for a beautiful, new version of yourself.

However, if you're not sure about getting this treatment, you can always try at-home solutions.

Under-eye bags can make you look tired and sleepy all the time, or worse, and they might give you that sick-looking face. Inevitably, though, such changes in the under-eye area are caused most often by ageing. However, there are also other factors that can cause your eyes to appear dull and unhealthy. Stress, fatigue, a lack of sleep, an unhealthy lifestyle, and seasonal allergies are merely a few of them. In very rare cases, swollen eyes might be related to any health conditions and require medical treatment.

But instead of worrying about the reasons for your under-eye bags, why not find a way to relive your allure? In this article, we will present some of the most popular home remedies for removing eye bags. You will also learn how to find the fastest solution to improving the appearance of your eyes in case at-home treatments do not work.

How to reduce and remove eye bags: 10 Home Remedies

Take advantage of nature's gifts

  • Potato: This simple home remedy can help you quickly get rid of under-eye puffiness. Refrigerate a raw potato for a couple of minutes, then slice it into two parts and put each half on your lower eyelids. After 15-20 minutes, you should notice a tremendous change in the size of the bags under your eyes. Aside from reducing under-eye puffiness, this vegetable also helps minimise dark circles.
  • Cucumber: Same as potatoes, cucumber can also reduce swelling in the eye region. Take two slices, chill them, and then apply them to your eyes for 25 minutes. If you take a short nap while the cucumber juice is on your eyes, it will relax them even more. Make use of cucumber slices on a regular basis for several weeks to see positive results.
  • Frozen Strawberries: Remove the tops of a handful of strawberries and place them in the freezer. Following that, cut the fruits into thick slices and place them over your eyes for 10 minutes. When the chill has subsided, gently rub the strawberry slices around your eyes. This home remedy can be beneficial for both puffy eyes and dark under-eye circles.
  • Mint and Tomato Juice: They contain powerful ingredients that can soothe your eyelid skin and reduce swelling. In order to see results, you need to apply mint or tomato juice around your eyes for a few weeks.
  • Aloe Vera: This plant is known to moisturise the skin and prevent wrinkles from forming. Aside from that, Aloe Vera can help reduce swelling and dark circles under your eyes. Simply take a fresh slice of aloe vera leaves and place them on your eyelids to heal your skin. You can also use aloe vera gel as an alternative.

Milk it away

Aside from keeping your bones healthy, milk can do more benefit to your body than you think. Using milk on a regular basis can help you deal with under-eye bags and dark circles. Just dip a cotton ball in chilled milk and place it on your eyelids. Leave it for 20 minutes, and then wash it off with water. Using milk routinely can help you avoid dry skin and swollen eyes.

Castor and Vitamin E Oil

Botlle castor oil

Vitamin E deficiency is a common cause of dark under-eye circles and hollowness in the tear trough area. Massage your lower lids with Vitamin E oil to hydrate your skin and improve the appearance of your eyes. It is best to use it about twice a week as part of your morning skincare routine. Vitamin E oil nourishes the skin cells around your eyes, making them look younger and less tired. Furthermore, it can slow the ageing process of your skin. You can also use castor oil, which works in the same way.

Fresh Butter

It doesn't have to be Shea butter. Just take one tablespoon of fresh butter and gently apply it around your eyes. Massage the area for about 15 minutes and leave it for another 15 minutes to allow your skin to absorb the nutrients. Wash your face with warm water afterwards. The fresh butter's grease will moisturize your skin immediately.

Tea Bags

Chilled tea bags, regardless of the type of tea, are an effective herbal remedy for removing under-eye bags. Moisten two bags in cold water and refrigerate them for a while. After that, place them over your eyes for 30 minutes. Lie down and relax while the tea bags are working on your eyes. Then, rinse using cold water and dry it thoroughly. The cold compress will improve blood flow and constrict the blood vessels beneath the skin, making your eyes appear brighter.

Hot Water and Ice Cubes

Ice: You can use ice cubes on a daily basis to relax your eyes after a long day at work. Simply wrap some ice cubes in a thin cloth and gently place the cold compress on your eyes. Using cold compresses is only a temporary solution, but it's good preventative maintenance to avoid puffy lids.

Hot Water: It's a known fact that hot water can treat a wide range of issues, from minor muscle pain to digestive difficulties. It should come as no surprise that combining hot water and salt can help reduce eyelid swelling. Use it to wash your face on a daily basis, and you will notice a difference in your skin. If your under-eye puffiness is caused by an allergy, using a neti pot filled with a saltwater solution may be very beneficial.

Chilled Spoons

Spoons are not just to help us with eating. Stainless spoons can be used to get rid of bags under the eyes. Chill two spoons using ice cubes in a cup and place them on the lower lid region once the spoons are cold enough. Keep the spoons until they become warmer. If you practice it frequently, you will reduce puffiness within no time.

Egg Whites

Although it would be more tempting to use egg whites to make desserts, they can also help you look younger. Beat egg whites in a bowl and apply them to the under-eye area using a thin brush. Leave it for about 20 to 30 minutes and rinse it using cold water. It is known to reduce the puffiness around your eyes and gives you firmer, tightened skin.

Almond oil

Almond oil is another simple and effective home remedy for under-eye bags and dark circles. Massage a few drops of almond oil under your eyes with your finger. It is best to apply the product before going to bed. However, make sure to use pure almond oil because many products found in supermarkets contain parabens and artificial fragrances.

Coffee under-eye mask

In addition to improving your mood, caffeine can also help you deal with puffy eyes. Because coffee has anti-inflammatory properties, it can help you get rid of under-eye puffiness. It also helps to constrict dilated blood vessels and increase blood flow, which is beneficial for dark circles. How do you make an under-eye mask? Simply combine a tablespoon of coffee powder and the same amount of aloe vera gel, and apply the mixture to the area under your eyes. Wait for 15-20 minutes and wash it off with cool water.

How to Reduce Eye Bags - Lifestyle changes to get rid of under-eye bags

Hydrate properly

Water. Water. Water. It's what you needed the most. It is well known that dehydration contributes to under-eye bags. Remaining hydrated can help prevent them. Keep an eye on water intake daily. For most adults, it is ideal for drinking at least eight glasses of water a day.

Change your sleeping habit and position

Tiredness and a lack of sleep are not the only causes of eye inflammation. Even if you had a restful night's sleep, if your position is unfavourable, you may experience under-eye bags. Make sure to sleep on your back with an extra pillow elevating your head. This will help you prevent fluid retention in the undereye area.

Limit your intake of salty foods

If you frequently overeat salty foods at dinner, don't be surprised if your face and eyes swell the following day. A high salt intake causes your body to retain water. It will undoubtedly have an impact on the appearance of your eyes. In addition, the excess consumption of salt can often cause medical conditions such as high blood pressure, kidney problems and others. Make sure to limit your intake of canned, processed, and spicy foods to prevent fluid retention. Instead, eat more whole foods like fruits and vegetables, as well as foods rich in iron like beans, peas, and red meat.

Be careful with the sun

UV rays can have a really harmful impact on the skin. They can cause various skin issues, wrinkles, allergies, dermatitis, dryness, pigmentation, and so on. Sun exposure is especially damaging to the delicate and thin skin around your eyes. Wearing sunscreen every day can help protect the eye contour and prevent under-eye bags.

Use the right eye cream

Getting older usually results in the loss of collagen, elastin, and other important nutrients to your skin. So it is crucial that you use quality cosmetics which is suitable for your skin type and will provide it with the essential elements. When choosing an eye serum or cream, certain ingredients may be worth looking for, such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin A (retinol). The use of active ingredients such as peptides can also benefit the skin since they stimulate collagen production.

Note this! Avoid layering vitamin C and retinol together since they may cause redness and itchy eyes. Using vitamin C in the morning and retinol at night, for instance, is a good way to implement both ingredients into your skincare routine.

Always remove your makeup before bed

If you have the bad habit of leaving makeup on your face before going to bed, you are more likely to wake up swollen in the morning. It is also possible that it will cause skin allergies. So always take the time to remove your makeup and use natural cosmetics as part of your nighttime routine. Also, make sure to use high-quality eye makeup. Never use very old cosmetics that may irritate the sensitive skin in the under-eye area.

Get facial treatments

There are numerous facial treatments available to reduce dark circles, eye bags, and sagging skin around the eyes. They are usually more effective than home remedies. In order to achieve optimal results, your doctor may recommend a combination of cosmetics and procedures. You can usually choose between procedures such as laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, or one of the most recent Sunekos treatments.

SUNEKOS is a patented Hyaluronic Acid and Amino Acid formula that stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin, allowing for new skin cell regeneration.

It is best to consult with a specialist who will advise you on the right under-eyes treatment for your skin type, specific needs, and goals.
