What are the Causes of Bags Under the Eyes?
Causes of bags under the eyes in Iran
Bags under the eyes, also known as periorbital edema, are the swelling and puffiness of the tissues around the eyes, which occurs due to excessive fluid accumulation in the skin around the eyes. Since the skin around the eyes is the thinnest in the body, its swelling and discoloration soon attract attention. Puffiness under the eyes makes the eyes look swollen and tired, and depending on the severity of the problem, swelling under the eyes can make it difficult to open or close them completely.
Bags under the eyes have nothing to do with age and can even appear in young people, creating an unpleasant feeling and even making them look older.

• Eat salty foods and minimize salt consumption
Salt and salty foods are the causes of puffiness under the eyes. So, avoid eating salty foods and drink more fluids and water.
• Change the way you sleep
Sleeping on your back causes swelling and puffiness around the eyes. Likewise, lack of sleep is another important factor in puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. Try to change the way you sleep
