Top 4 Causes of Baggy Eyes

Oh, baggy eyes, how do I get rid of thee?

I was watching the Dr. Oz show recently where he revealed the top causes of baggy eyes:

1.  Aging
2.  Allergies
3.  Salt
4.  Sleep Habits

So apparently it's inevitable that we will face this annoying issue the older we get, and for me, the process has already begun.

I used to have double bags under my eyes. Yes, my bags had their own set of carry-on luggage. However, after I started elevating my head on fluffier pillows, the second set of bags went away. When you sleep on flat pillows, fluid builds up under your eyes.

Dr. Oz did recommend the good ole cucumber trick to help soothe eyes, but I don't always have cucumbers in the fridge. There is a company, TheraPearl, that offers an Eye-ssential Mask, which I like to use...

TheraPearl feels so nice on my eyes!

All you do is throw the mask in the freezer for a couple hours, so when it's time for a little rest and relaxation, take them out for instant eye relief. I don't know that they'll get rid of baggy eyes, but hopefully they'll prevent them from getting baggier as I get older!

You can also use it as soothing relief after waxing eyebrows or getting plastic surgery on the eyes. If you have nasal congestion, you can put the mask in the microwave for 10-15 seconds for heat therapy.
