Women and women doctors alike often talk about puffy eyes and baggy eyes interchangeably. But there is a difference. Puffy eyes primarily stem from fluid retention they’re temporary. Bags under the eyes develop over the years, as fat accumulates in the eye area. Not everyone develops baggy eyes. But unfortunately, once bags form, there’s no diet or workout to decrease them. Short of cosmetic surgery, there’s not much that you can do about bags under your eyes, says dermatologist Dr Marianne O’Donoghue, expect the following.
Pat on concealer. A concealer is more opaque than a foundation and meant to be used sparingly, says Fatima Olive, product developer for Aveda Corporation a cosmetic and health products manufacturer. For best results select a concealer that’s just one tone lighter than your foundation. Or, if you’re wearing concealer alone, match the concealer to your shade of skin. Since baggy skin tends to be darker, you want to blend it correctly. Using an eyeliner brush apply concealer to the dark areas, then blend with your little finger, patting very lightly. Finish with foundation and with light power, or alone, to set the concealer.
