Updated: September 17, 2017 To truly get rid of bags and wrinkles from underneath your eyes, you have to attack the root of the problem: computer screens, stress, smoking, sleep problems and alcohol. This is the best solution for living a healthier, more attractive and enjoyable lifestyle. However, life is complicated. And, it isn’t always possible to easily eliminate bags and wrinkles under eyes using normal solutions.
This means that life sometimes requires intensive, life-changing treatments such as these to remove bags and wrinkles under your eyes regardless of what it takes. That’s what this article is for.
But first, let’s cover some key details that you’ll need to know about removing eye bags and wrinkles (and then we’ll dive into the top 7 eye bag treatments that you need to know about)…
What really causes bags, wrinkles and dark circles under eyes?
To attack the root problem of your eye bags and wrinkles, you need to understand what causes your bags and wrinkles in the first place.
Below, I’ve listed the most common reasons why you probably have bags and wrinkles underneath your eyes:
Reason 1. Skin tissue around the eyes naturally wears with time
One of the most common reasons why people experience bags and wrinkles under the eyes is because of Mother Nature herself.
If you’re an aging adult, then your bags and wrinkles are probably the result of your skin tissue naturally wearing with time.
As you age, your skin starts to weaken – especially the skin around your eyes. This can also cause naturally-occurring fat and fluids to shift underneath your lower eyelids.
This is what makes most people’s eyes appear to have dark circles or puffiness. It doesn’t look great. But, it’s a completely natural part of aging that you can take steps to improve.
Reason 2. Sleep-related issues
People’s eyes look a lot worse when they don’t get enough high-quality sleep. This should be obvious. But, many people ignore the important relationship between how well you sleep, and how nice the skin around your eyes looks.
Since not everyone can get high-quality sleep for a number of reasons, it’s important that you at least try the best you can to sleep well at night.
Reason 3. Allergies
I personally deal with allergies on an almost daily basis. So, I know what happens to your eyes when you constantly rub them. Your eyes become puffy, irritated and watery. In other words, they look really bad.
So, allergies can easily exacerbate your eye bags (and make you feel pretty terrible too).
Using YS Eco Bee Farms Raw Propolis has been the most effective allergy treatment that I’ve ever tried…after dealing with allergies for decades.
Propolis has been more effective for safely treating my allergies than using local raw honey, essential oils, medication etc.
However, I also recommend taking a good antihistamine if your allergies are severe enough.
For treating allergies, I like the generic version of Zyrtec called GoodSense All Day Allergy (it uses Cetirizine HCL which is the same active ingredient found in Zyrtec).
By taking propolis and a good antihistamine, you can actually stop yourself from rubbing your eyes, and help to improve the skin underneath your eyes.
Reason 4. Alcohol / Diet
You can tell how healthy someone’s diet is by looking into their eyes. And, people who consume a lot of alcohol and processed food can’t really hide the negative impact caused by these ingredients.
Dark circles and swollen eyes are tell-tale signs of excess alcohol consumption and processed food binges.
But, if this sounds like you, then there’s no need to worry.
The human body is extremely quick to heal. It’s amazing, really. You just need to drink more water, blend green smoothies, and eat high-quality food, and your eyes will start to look good in practically no time.
Drop the junk food, and your eyes will show signs of beauty again.
Reason 5. Stress / Lifestyle
Do you have to meet weekly or even daily deadlines to keep your job?
Are you forced to deal with clients who you can’t stand?
You’re not alone…
The stress of Western society is a gigantic factor that contributes to dark circles, eye bags, wrinkles and even disease.
Unfortunately, this is perhaps the most difficult problem to deal with, because it can be extremely challenging to escape the stress of Western society when you have to live in the USA.
For some reason, European societies are usually a bit better about maintaining a work-life balance. You may want to consider relocating to a less stressful environment if your work situation is too extreme.
Sometimes, transferring to a new job in a new city is all that it takes to significantly improve your work-life balance, and eliminate those eye bags and wrinkles.
Reason 6. Genetics
Dark circles around your eyes can absolutely be hereditary.
If this is the case, then there’s unfortunately not a whole lot that you can do besides consider having cosmetic surgery (if your situation is drastic enough).
If your dark circles or eye bags are hereditary, I say embrace them!

The top 7 treatments for removing bags and wrinkles under eyes in 2017
Now that you have a solid understanding of why you may have eye bags and wrinkles, you’re ready to start solving your problem.
So, let’s move on to the top treatments that you can use right this second to start reducing the appearance of eye bags, wrinkles and dark circles.
The following 7 treatments can have a profound effect on your eye bags, wrinkles, overall beauty and your entire livelihood…
Eye bag treatment 1. Hydrate
Drinking water is one of the most important steps you can take to make your skin appear brighter, more attractive and youthful.
While I like to drink bottled spring water whenever possible, I also think that filtered tap water is OK too.
Regardless of the type of water that you drink, it’s extremely helpful to have a water bottle that you enjoy drinking from. This might sound kind of weird. But, having a good water bottle can actually encourage you to drink more water.
I like the Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Water Bottle because it’s leak-proof, hygienic (BPA-free) and literally fun to drink from (water flows right out of it).
As a bonus, this bottle is insulated. So, it’s great for keeping coffee hot, and keeping ice water cold for an extremely long time (many hours).
Eye bag treatment 2. Clean up your diet
Cleaning up your diet is often the difference between having swollen, puffy eyes (if you happen to eat a lot of Panda Express) and bright, youthful eyes (if you happen to eat really clean foods).
Everyone has different taste preferences. But, a clean diet usually consists of food that hasn’t been processed. The goal is to eat foods that are as close as possible to being from nature.
So, simply try your best to eat the following foods:
- Organic eggs
- Fresh seafood
- Green vegetables (kale, spinach, romaine lettuce)
- High-quality meats
- Brown rice or quinoa
- Power fruits (beets, pomegranates, apples)
When you can eat mostly real, natural foods, and avoid processed foods, your skin will literally start to glow. This is not just a metaphorical expression.
Your skin will actually begin to transform.
Especially the skin surrounding your eyes.
Eye bag treatment 3. Get high-quality sleep
If you can get high-quality sleep, you can also improve the skin surrounding your eyes.
While correcting sleep issues is essentially an entire topic on its own, there are some important tips you can use to achieve high-quality sleep.
But, you can also do things like…
- Sleep in a cold room (set your air conditioner to below 69 degrees Fahrenheit)
- Get a high-quality mattress pad (make your bed more comfortable)
- Avoid eating before bedtime
- Exercise at least 4-5 hours before bedtime
- Spend all of your energy during the day so that you’re exhausted at night
When you get good sleep, your entire life will improve. And, your eyes will show it.
Eye bag treatment 4. Use a premium eye cream
Amara Organics Total Repair Eye Cream Gel is an amazing skin care product that can help you naturally reduce dark circles and eye puffiness.
This Total Repair Eye Cream uses ingredients like vitamin E, hyaluronic acid, peptides and other organic compounds that can restore your darkened or wrinkled skin, and make your eyes appear really nice.
I love that this cream fills in lines to help you fight wrinkles. And, it also boosts collagen, and firms your skin. It’s also free of all chemicals and dyes, so it’s especially gentle on the skin around your eyes.
Eye bag treatment 5. Get a vitamin C gel
Body Merry Day-to-Night Eye Gel is one of those transformative products that can make a noticeable difference on your eye bags and wrinkles.
This eye gel uses vitamin C to naturally treat and repair the skin surrounding your eyes. Your eyes will appear brighter and more energized when you put this stuff on.
Best of all, it also uses ingredients like plant stem cells, hyaluronic acid and silk proteins to help you kill signs of puffiness and wrinkles.
Did I mention that this gel also has a subtle cucumber scent? It smells awesome…
Eye bag treatment 6. Improve your work situation to the best of your ability
Work and work-related stress is one of the root causes of exacerbated eye bags.
So, one of the best things that you can do to improve the appearance of your eye bags and wrinkles (and your overall quality of life) is to improve your work-life balance.
Changing jobs, moving to a new city, or switching career paths could be the ‘beauty hack’ that changes your outlook on life, and helps to eliminate your eye bags.
Eye bag treatment 7. Have more adventures (enjoy more ‘experiences’)
When you take more road trips, spend more time with friends, and experience life to the fullest, your eyes will transform for the better.
People can tell a lot about you just by the way that your eyes look.
And, if you’re someone who likes to go on adventures, people will notice a certain sparkle in your eyes.
Plus, you’re a lot less likely to have eye bags, dark circles or swollen eyes when you’re too busy experiencing life and immersing yourself in nature.
So, make sure to have more adventures, get outside, and enjoy more of what Earth has to offer. This will have a massive impact on your quality of life, and the natural appearance of your eyes.
