How to eliminate unsightly eye bags.
It is widely accepted that eye bags occur when one has had a few nights of insufficient sleep, and as there are many factors that could contribute to the lack of a decent night’s sleep, the same is true for those undesirable eye bags.
It is true that a bad night under the duvet contributes significantly to the appearance of your eyes, but other factors such as water retention, allergies, sinus problems, poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption and lack of physical activity all contribute to red, sore and apparently puffy eyes.
