Eye Bag Vs Dark Circle: Difference Between Eye Bags and Dark Circles

Eye Bag Vs Dark Circle

We’ve all had that oh no moment: looking in the mirror one morning and seeing dark circles or unsightly puffy eyes. Maybe it’s an everyday occurrence for you, but if not; there are a couple of sneaky things that can be causing it, which are fixable if done at the right time. It’s important to understand that the skin around your eyes is the thinnest skin on your entire body, and is the most sensitive to change. From the flow of fluids to the tugging of regular makeup application, it’s vulnerable to a lot more damage than the rest of your body. The two major problems we see with our eyes (other than wrinkles) are puffiness and dark circles.

Difference Between Eye Bags And Dark Circles

A) What Are Puffy Eyes?

Puffy eyes are caused by temporary swelling. Common triggers of puffiness are seasonal allergies, consuming salty foods, dehydration and lack of sleep. Puffiness can arise from dehydration, which can cause your body to retain water and leads to facial swelling. Lack of sleep makes puffy eyes worse, too, because of the pooling of fluid in the area. Puffiness often gets better throughout the day, being worse in the morning and lessening as the fluid naturally drains. Another cause of puffy eyes could come from the way you sleep. Sleeping on your side or your stomach may cause fluids to pool in your eyes. It’s not easy to change, but if this is your problem, try sleeping on your back!

B) What Are Dark Circles?

Dark circles are often associated with tiredness, but they can be caused by a lot more than a lack of sleep. Unfortunately, some of us are born with them! Genetics always play a role, and pigmentary issues that cause under-eye discoloration is common among people of Asian and dark-skinned races. The other unavoidable cause of dark circles is simply age our skin thins as we age, and as this particular skin is already thin, this effect will increase the visibility of the tiny blood vessels in the area. With age, while you lose volume in the area under your eyes, it also exposes the orbital bone creating a hollow “trough” that looks like a dark circle.
