Bags under the eyes are some of the most common signs of aging and some of the most visible as well. Bags under the eyes appear as pockets of loose, droopy skin that accumulate under the eyes, creating a crescent below the bottom eyelid. This is frequently accompanied by dark circles and intense wrinkles, making for a less than appealing appearance that can lead to insecurities and self-consciousness.
These signs of age have several causes, all of which are natural. As a person grows older, the muscles in the eyelids weaken and fat deposits around the eyes sink, causing a buildup of fat and fluid in the lower eyelid and creating the bag-like droopiness as a result. Several home remedies also exist.
