dark circles/under eye bags

how does one get that smooth under eye look? i see lots of women with this and i just don't have it. i usually have a bit of dark circle and slight bags (unless i'm laughing then i have very noticeable ones) i use the olay line for circles and bags and they do help but they're not permanent and you can see the bags under my make up

here's 2 pictures (the second is where the lines and such also depends on the lighting)

i guess it's really just puffiness rather than there a permanent solution?

p.s. i'm not wearing make up in the pic; i already wiped it off, i just have to wash my face i guess there's a little still there

Read the back of the olay product and tell me if it contains vitamin k, lecithin or titanium dioxide. I found one olay cream with 2 of the three. Your eyebags aren't genetic are they? If not it could be the factor of water retention. If your olay product contains lecithin, it may explain why it works and assuming it isn't one that appears closer to the top of the list may explain why it only works slightly. Ingredients are listed in order of highest pecentage in the solution to lowest. If it turns out it doesnt have any of those lidted can you put in the ingredients? The reason I say this is because obviously something in it is working and so we are targetting what that is, whether itnis for brighter eyes or less puffiness depends on the ingredients. You can buy pure lecithin on ebay, amazon, skinactives. Pure vitamin k for dark circles those places as well, and likewise, vitamin c to brighten the complexion. Also because the skin around the eyes is thin, you might consider finding ways to plump it up with nano collagen eyegel sheets once you have the puffiness and dark circles under control.

okay so i looked at the products (they're actually garnier...i thought i had olay but oh well) anyway, the one for the anti puff has caffeine and vitamin b5....the one for the dark circles has caffeine, lemon essence, and mineral pigments.....none of what you said......and i know i don't drink enough water but that's because i don't really have drinks during the day (while i work) because i work in a daycare and i find when i have drinks, i have to pee like every like 30-60 minutes and i can't do that while i wait til after work.

Its fine, vitamin b5 helps to firm and tone the skin, vitamin c is a natural lightener and protects the skin against free radicals, as an anti oxidant effrct, so those are the working ingredients, you can but vitamin c powderonline and put it in pure citrus drinks and take the supplement forit as well as make face masks with it to brighten. The good thing about vitamin c is once the body uses up all of what it needs it naturally lets out the rest, so taking like 9,000 mgs of it over the courseof the day will only benefit the skin. I will link some products you might want to look into:

I use a cold compress on my under eye bags. The cold will make tha blood vessels restrict and become small, thus, making your bags smaller (bubzbeauty on YouTube has a really good video about that). As for dark under eyes, look for products that are illuminating, they will bring more light to that area of your face. I have absolutely No idea how to get rid of them but that will hide then.

1. Be sure to drink enough water. Hydration Calculator: How much water do you need?

2. Wear sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 under the eyes to prevent skin weakening caused by sun damage.

3. Get plenty of rest.

4. Apply plain cool teabags over closed eyes. Don’t use herbal teabags, because most aren't as effective.

5. Apply cool cucumber slices over closed eyes for 15 minutes.

6. Be careful not to consume too much dietary salt. Start by learning about sources of sodium in the diet.

7. Apply vitamin K cream. Although studies haven't looked at the use of topical vitamin K for dark circles under the eyes, preliminary studies have found that vitamin K may help with bruising.

oh and no, they aren't least not that i know of...and my coverup and stuff hides the dark spots, but not the puffiness which i believe is the worst of it (just found the reply button...couldn't find it before and haven't replied an answer in a long time lol)

B5 is water soluble so getting some and putting a little water over it can make a really nice under eye mask

Posted on 19 Oct 2012 for dark circles. Diy products are too complicated so im getting ones you can use as they are.

Posted on 19 Oct 2012 basically buying these will give you the full benefit of what you say works. When you get something like the garnier roll on, the ingredients are often times diluted with other stuff like water, or parabens, and you only get a little of what is actually doing the work.
