If you're anything like me, you probably have under-eye bags. Mine are genetic, (I even have eye bags in my baby pictures!) but under-eye bags can appear for a number of reasons including fatigue, aging and poor diet. Luckily though, there are plenty of affordable and accesible remedies for under-eye bags out there. Here are a few ways to get rid of under-eye bags, according to dermatologists.

Apply Green Tea Bags

Applying cold, wet green tea bags under the eyes can reduce the appearance of under-eye bags significantly. This is because green tea is loaded with antioxidants that fight free radical damage. "The daily application of topical antioxidants has many benefits for the skin, chief among them auxiliary protection from exposure to harmful UV radiation, a well-known cause of skin cancer, photodamage, immunosuppression and other harmful outcomes," The Dermatologist reports.

Use An Eye Cream

Many women resort to using an under-eye cream or serum to eliminate eye bags. Many of them are filled with antioxidants, vitamins and botanticals that help de-puff the under-eye area. "Teamine Eye Cream is one of the best eye creams I have encountered for combating under eye wrinkling," says Dr. Dendy Engelman, board certified dermatologist for Clearasil. The studies show that patients using Teamine had visibly younger looking eyes in as little as 12 weeks."

Stay Hydrated

Staying hydrated is important for all functions of the body, but especially for keeping under-eye bags at bay. "I would suggest drinking lots of water," says Dr. Axe, a certified doctor of natural medicine and clinical nutritionist. "You will feel fresher, your eyes will be wide open, welcoming and your skin around your eyes will glow since they will be more hydrated."

Consider Laser Treatment

If all else fails, you can always look into laser treatments to reduce under-eye bags. They aren't as scary as they sound and many treaments can even be done at home! "Lasers (and chemical peels) can tighten the crepe lower lid skin and reduce the appearance of mild lower lid bags," says Theda C. Kontis, MD, Baltimore-based plastic surgeon.
