Bruises under the eyes: causes and a recipe for getting rid of


Bruises under the eyes have not decorated anyone yet. But, as a rule, appearance is only a reflection of your lifestyle.

Beauty and health often go hand in hand. Therefore, your attitude to your own health and lifestyle will sooner or later affect your appearance. An excellent example of this is the appearance of bruises under the eyes.

Of course, “here and now” they can be masked with cosmetics, but since the root cause remains in this case, the bruises will not disappear the next day. So, it is necessary to find out the reasons for the appearance of bruises under the eyes, in order to fight them fully armed and competently.

Causes of bags and blue spots

The main causes of bruising under the eyes include:

  • sedentary lifestyle
  • stress
  • chronic fatigue (both physical and mental)
  • poor nutrition
  • lack of sleep
  • hypovitaminosis
  • chronic diseases
  • genetic data

The first six reasons are widespread among young people and residents of megacities, as a result of their lifestyle. Blue circles under the eyes are nothing more than blood vessels and capillaries translucent through the skin. Due to an improper lifestyle, their tone gradually worsens, they increase in size and begin to “shine through” through the thin skin of the lower eyelids. A similar effect is observed in chronic dehydration and anemia (lack of iron). If we add to this chronic lack of sleep and fatigue, due to which swelling appears, we get a beautiful picture of blue bags under the eyes.

Food poor in nutrients, which is typical for residents of large cities, also contributes to your appearance and, in particular, the condition of the capillaries and skin under the eyes.

And if the circles appeared quite suddenly, and rather dark than blue, then most likely the problem is in some kind of chronic disease. Therefore, in any case, without delay, immediately consult a doctor.

In some people, despite the absence of all of these factors, bags under the eyes are almost always present. And the reason for this is their genetic characteristics: the skin is thinner, and the capillaries, on the contrary, are thicker. And all these factors only exacerbate the situation. Therefore, it is especially important for such people to monitor the lifestyle and quality of nutrition, as well as take special care of the skin in this area.

Ways and methods of getting rid of bruises under the eyes depend on the level of «neglect» in each case. But you should always start with the root causes of the problem, that is:

  • sleep regularly
  • rest more often
  • minimize stress in your life
  • good quality and nutritious food
  • if possible, take vitamin complexes according to a doctor’s prescription

If after a few weeks of a “new” life the bruises have not decreased, or even disappeared completely, then you have a direct road to a therapist. He will tell you what examinations will need to be done for health problems, and prescribe treatment.

If health is in order, then the last way remains — visiting a beauty salon.

  • Lymphatic drainage or electrical stimulation. Result: improved functioning of the lymphatic vessels, reduced swelling.
  • Phototherapy. Result: discoloration of dark pigment and improved collagen formation in the skin.
  • Mesotherapy. Result: strengthening of the vascular wall.

Folk and home methods

If you do not have the desire or opportunity to seek help from a beautician, then you can use some folk and home methods.

Wipe the skin under the eyes every morning with a piece of ice. This normalizes blood circulation and improves vascular tone. A similar effect will have compresses for the eyelids with cold water. It is also effective to wipe the skin around the eyes with strong tea (black or green).

Potato mask. Grate a raw potato and wrap the resulting mass in gauze. Leave on the skin under the eyes for 15-20 minutes.

Tea compress. In ¼ cup boiling water, brew a teaspoon of black tea. Wait until cool, and then apply tea-soaked cotton swabs to the eyelids for 1-2 minutes and repeat 3-4 times. At the end, make a cold compress and apply eye cream to the skin.

Compress from a decoction of sage. In 1/2 cup boiling water, brew a teaspoon of sage leaves. Divide the resulting broth into 2 parts, heat one of which and cool the other. Then alternately apply cotton swabs soaked in hot and cold infusions. At the end, apply eye cream to the skin. This procedure is best done at night.
