Men are more prone to develop bags under eyes. Bags or sometimes called dark circles under the eyes are due to the accumulation of fluids under the skin. Fluids accumulate due to so many factors like excessive tearing, sleep deprivation, nutrient deficiencies and stress. All of these must be resolved to be able to totally reduce if not remove bags under eyes in men. Bags under the eyes may be removed by taking enough sleep. Getting about 6 to 8 hours of sleep is a must if you want to remove these unsightly skin conditions. As you prepare for sleep, you should also think about the ideal sleeping position since you would like to drain fluids away from your face. The ideal position is placing two pillows under your head and lying on your back. You may also choose to sleep on your side which may also help drain fluids but not as effective as propping your head with two pillows. Drinking more fluids especially water will help you dilute salt in the body. High concentration of salt on a body part like the eyes and the face will attract water. This leads to more water to accumulate on the eye area causing puffiness and discoloration.
Drinking more water will dilute the body from salts and minerals. It will also help flush out toxins from the body via the urine. Drinking more than 8 glasses will also be perfect in improving your overall health. Men are less careful about facial care and mostly this causes irritation on the skin which in turn causes the delicate skin along the eye area to inflame and swell. Men are therefore encouraged to take care of their skin using mild products. If you have sensitive skin is sure to consult your doctor before using any kind of skin cleansing product. If you smoke or drink alcohol maybe it is time to quit. Smoking and alcohol only diminishes the blood’s ability to transport oxygen in the different areas of the body as well as the eye area.
When you stop smoking, you will eventually improve your overall health especially cardiovascular, pulmonary and skin health. Alcohol on the other hand only overworks the kidneys and will prevent the organ from successfully filtering and removing toxins from the body. When you commit to a lifestyle overhaul, you will soon improve your overall health. Men should consider a healthy diet, eating foods that contain all the necessary nutrients to promote health especially skin health and immune system health will all contribute to removing dark circles under the eyes. A healthy diet must have all the three important food groups (fats, protein and carbohydrates) as well as the vitamins and minerals that the body needs for healthier blood and skin. Men are not too different from women when it comes to treatment of bags under the eyes in men. With all these techniques, dark circles and puffiness in the eye area will be a thing of the past for men.
