It will have happened to everyone to wake up with swollen eyes and the famous bags under the eyes. A blemish very different from the black furrows caused by dark circles, but which we often confuse. Most of the time the cause is to be found in the normal lack of rest. Or a normal aging of the skin that is no longer as elastic as it once was. In general, especially if it is a passing imperfection, we should not worry. But in some cases it can be a symptom of other pathologies.
Be careful because bags under the eyes could be a wake-up call for these pathologies
As reported by the authoritative Humanitas, bags under the eyes are a combination of several factors, primarily a stagnation of liquids. Which, added to the failure of the elasticity and enlargement of the adipose tissue, causes this imperfection.
The main causes, as previously mentioned, are to be found in the lack of rest. But over the years they could be caused by natural aging of the skin. How to know if you need to worry? Surely it is necessary to speak to your doctor, especially if they occur frequently. In fact, the bags under the eyes are already in themselves a symptom, that of a stagnation of liquids. Then we will go to investigate the reason that caused this swelling similar to an edema.
So, let’s be careful because bags under the eyes could be a wake-up call for these pathologies. We always consult our trusted doctor who will prescribe all the tests to be done.
Blemish or symptom?
From the results it will be possible to understand if it is a symptom of a more or less serious pathology. In fact, bags under the eyes could be a symptom of an infectious form such as conjunctivitis. But also of much more important pathologies such as hypothyroidism, hypertension or kidney and liver problems.
We always pay attention to what the body communicates to us and we do not neglect any symptoms. We always try to follow a healthy and balanced diet by combining it with physical exercise. But let’s make sure you get enough rest and possibly with your head raised. In addition, we always protect the eyes and the eye area by wearing sunglasses. Thus we will avoid premature aging of the skin and the possible accumulation of dark pigments.
If it is just an imperfection, the swelling can be reduced with astringent creams or if the specialist recommends a blepharoplasty. If the swelling is only temporary and due to fatigue, we can use a completely natural make-up. We have already talked about it in the all natural makeup to deflate bags under the eyes without spending money on creams.
