How To Get Rid Of Eye Bags and Puffiness with One Simple Treatment

The inevitable is no less of a shock just because it is inevitable”- Jamaica Kincaid.

Just because eye bags are inevitable for most of us, it doesn’t make them any less shocking when they appear under our eyes.

Try as we might, eye bags are a constant source of frustration for many of us, and we just can’t seem to put our finger on the cause or the remedies.

Well ZIIP Beauty has set about to debunk this problem, and help you achieve your lifelong goal of abolishing those eye bags for good.

What do eye bags look like?

The term ‘eye bags’ refers to a certain kind of puffiness or mild swelling of the skin beneath the eye. They’re caused when the muscles and tissue supporting your eyelids start to weaken.

This often causes sagging or loose skin, drooping towards the bottom of the eye socket.

Oftentimes, eye bags can cause the appearance of dark circles around the eyes, typically from the shadowing caused from the puffiness of the eye, or hollowing under the eye socket.

What causes eye bags?

Eye bags have a variety of causes, depending on your age, routine, diet, lifestyle, and more.

Here’s a breakdown of possible causes, so that you can identify which is the most relevant to you.

  • Ageing- As we get older, the skin beneath our eyes become thinner, and looser also. This is the skin that often sits, becoming the ‘eye bag’ as termed. The thinness of the skin also means blood vessels beneath the skin are more visible, contributing to dark circles around the eyes.

  • Sleep Deprivation- Not getting your eight hours of sleep causes the skin beneath your eyes to appear pale, making blood vessels seem more prominent, creating the dark circle phenomenon.

  • Genetics- If this is something you share with many members of your family, the cause could be something as simple as your genetics that lead to the development of eye bags.

Whatever your reason for bags under your eyes, there are plenty of eye bags remedies to combat these frustrating facial features.

How to Get Rid of Eye Bags in Minutes

At the heart of all of us sufferers of noticeable eye bags is the desire for a solution that just takes minutes of our lives.

Well, unfortunately, we have to break it to you- there is no miracle method to reduce bags under eyes in just minutes (technically).

However, there is a loophole to this. We might not be able to offer you the magical cure to get rid of eye bags permanently in minutes, but we can suggest a remedy that will take a couple of minutes of your day everyday and will significantly reduce the appearance of your eye bags.

That solution is….Microcurrent.

Designed to manipulate muscles and stimulate collagen production, microcurrent was initially used to treat Bell’s Palsy, which causes facial paralysis.

ZIIP HALO utilises both nanocurrent and microcurrent in their treatments, to target both immediate and long-lasting results.

A useful, hand-held device, ZIIP HALO facilitates eye bag treatments at home, encouraging users to treat their face 3 to 5 times a week to see significant results.

ZIIP sends low-grade doses of electricity into the skin, mimicking the body’s natural biometric field. As we age, our natural biometric field slows down, meaning our cells don’t receive the same stimulation, and therefore, they don’t have the same chemical reactions as they do when we’re younger.

The currents generated by ZIIP stimulate collagen production, and increase elasticity in the skin, boosting the plumpness of your skin and reducing the appearance of blood vessels and dark circles.

The manipulation of the muscles and the increased elasticity also means that the weakening of the muscles of your eyelids, which triggers sagging skin, is prevented and combatted.

This multi-approach method will tackle your eye bags in no time!

How to Prevent Eye Bags

How to eliminate eye bags is one dilemma, but preventing them from recoccuring is another.

As we’ve previously explored, sometimes eye bags can be genetic, and therefore, preventative methods may not work for everyone. But, for those of us with eye bags caused by lack of sleep, ageing or something else, there are some things we can do to prevent and lessen the appearance of bags.

  1. 1. Use Something Cold

    Try placing something cold under the eyes in the morning, whilst you get ready.

    Whether using a cool face cloth, or small slices of cucumber, cool temperatures reduce inflammation, targeting the puffiness below your eyes.

    In fact, treating the whole face with ice in the morning as part of your daily routine can be great for reducing blood flow to the face, eliminating swelling and soothing the skin.

    This is easier said than done, but having a regular and solid sleep routine, designed to ensure you get 8 hours of sleep a night is one of the best treatments for under eye bags.

  2. 2. Stick to a Solid Sleep Routine

    Build a routine for yourself around things that suit you, whether that’s having a hot bath, or reading a book.

    Relaxation before bed is the key to sleeping through the night, and abolishing those tricky eye bags for good!

    You can also try sleeping with your head slightly raised to reduce blood flow around the eyes.

  3. 3. Maintain a Healthy Low-Salt Diet

    Puffiness around the eyes can be caused by fluid retention in the body.

    By reducing the levels of salt within your diet, you can reduce your fluid retention, therefore, minimising the risk of eye bags developing.

    Follow these simple steps and be on your way to less visible eye bags, and bright, glowing eyes.
