What Causes Eye Bags and Hooded Eyes
As we age the tissues around the eyes, including some of the muscles supporting the eyelids, weaken. Normal fat cells that helps support the eyes can then move into the lower eyelids, causing the lids to appear puffy and swollen. Fluid can then accumulate in the space below the eyes, adding to the swelling, leading to the formation of eye bags. Eye bags are usually a cosmetic concern as the appearance can effect a person self-confidence and self-esteem and rarely a sign of a serious underlying medical condition.
The skin around the eye area is one of the most sensitive parts of the human body. The tissue around the eye is very thin and can be just one tenth as thick as other areas on the body. This means that the eye area is very delicate, sensitive and has less natural oil production. These factors can cause the eye area to age more quickly, be more dehydrated and become more susceptible to damage.
As with many of us, if you have tired or irritated eyes, you may find yourself constantly rubbing and itching them, or if you are heavy handed when applying and removing eye makeup, this can damage the eye area. The skin around the eye is very delicate, therefore these factors can cause a loss of elasticity and increasing the hooded effect. The eye ageing process also causes the breakdown of fatty tissue and the weakening of membranes around the eye area. This results in sagging and bulging under the skin leading to or increasing the appearance of eye bags.
Genetics and lifestyle choices pay an important part of the eye ageing process. The factors can increase the appearance of dark circles, eye bags, lose skin and hooded eyes. Several factors cause or worsen this effect, including:
- Fluid retention, especially upon waking or after a salty meal
- Too much salt or processed foods
- Not drinking enough water
- Lack of sleep
- Sun damage
- Heredity – eye bags can run in families
