I had "bags"under my eyes - always thought of them being as part of being overweight. They were still there when I reached maintenance but they have nearly disappeared now. I do use eye cream and take fish/krill oil since starting Cohen's.

Sometimes bags can be genetic.

Try some cucumber slices (refrigerated) and place them on your eyes.

Also, some creams are good. I am still experimenting.

That's interesting that you post this because I've noticed more bags under my eyes since starting Cohens too!

I found an amazing cream from Estee Lauder it's expensive - but you might be able to pick up a wee sample from your local chemist etc before you buy it? Worth a shot anyway

Hy i have 2 solution for puffiness under the eyes

2. Milky way:
If you have extremely puffed up eyes this is the regular regime that you will have to follow. Dip cotton pads in chilled milk and place on your eyelids and relax for 20-30 minutes. This well help your eyes in water retention and it would also cool them off .

3. Oily help:
Take chilled water in a bowl and add a few drops of vitamin E oil to it, now mix the two well. Dip cotton pads in this mixture and place on the eyes for 20 minutes, this well help in reducing the swelling around the eyes.

Cucumber is the common treatment for puffy eyes and dark circles. Place cucumber slices in a plastic bag and freeze them. Remove the cucumbers from the freezer when frozen and lay down, keeping your head propped up on a pillow and place the cucumbers over your eyes for about ten minutes.

Try using cucumber slices or potato slices. Both are good for dark circles and eye bags.

I use potato slices soaked in cold water & Vit E oil placed on eyes until they warm up and keep doing this for half hour or thereabouts. Works well.

This is an old thread but for those who still face this problem I would say take good sleep and try to wear sunglasses while going out and reading glasses when you read something.

I have puffy eyes if I don't get enough sleep. I am planning to undergo an under eye treatment. What are your thoughts?

My initial thought is to try the cucumber/potato slices method before bed and I would also apply vit E oil after your night moisturizer for a few weeks and see if there is an improvement.

So glad it has worked for you - I read the expert review see: http://www.paulaschoice.com/beautype...tion-Eye-Cream which said "However, all the beneficial ingredients this contains wont last for long once this jar-packaged moisturizer for normal to dry skin is opened." so - help someone????

Cold cucumbers may be a good treatment for your puffy eyes. You have to do:
1. at first you have cut a cucumber into thick slices.
2. Chill the slices into a refrigerator for 8/10 minutes.
3. chill slices put on your eyelids for the time until cold.
4. Continue this process for a several time in a day.

Egg Whites
The egg could give you a good treatment for you puffy eyes. What to do ?
1. Separate the yolks from 2 eggs and put the whites in a bowl.
2. Whip the egg whites thoroughly until you get a stiff consistency.
3. Add a few drops of witch hazel, a natural skin-tightening astringent.
4. Use a brush or soft cloth to apply this mixture under your eyes and allow it to dry.
5. Leave it on for about 15 minutes.
6. Continue this process daily for a few days.

I have heard about this simple method. Make a paste of potato, and put it in those areas under your eyes. I have never tried it yet, but have heard about it.!
