What Causes Bags Under Eyes?
Many people often ask, “why do I have bags under my eyes” or “what causes bags under eyes?” The truth is there are several causes, both controllable and non-controllable.
The top 4 causes of bags under eyes are as follows:
- The most common cause for bags under the eyes are genetics. People whose family members (father, mother, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc) have dark circles under their eyes will likely notice the same condition at a younger age.
- Another common cause of under-eye bags is smoking. Smoking destroys the elasticity in the lower eyelid.
- Dehydration or not drinking enough water is another very common cause of this hollowness and dark circle appearance in the lower eyelid area.
- Lack of sleep
- Lack of sleep is another common cause. This is often seen in very hard workers or those who stay up very late for work. Staying up late may cause puffiness under the eyes. These people are likely dehydrated and don’t get the recommended 8 hours of sleep.
