Eye bag is the common facial imperfection specifically to women. It makes a person look tired, sad and old. And as common norm of the society, quick fix is the best answer. But what really causes your eyelids to sag.

There were researches done to know the real cause of sagging eyelids. The study is the first to examine the anatomy of multiple subjects to determine what happens to the lower eyelid with age. It is also the first face-aging study that uses high-resolution magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). And as a result, researches have determined that fat expansion in the eye socket is the primary cause.

According to Dr. Mercola, published in his Natural Health Newsletter, bags under the eyes are related to a number of causes such as:

  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Fatigue
  • Not enough sleep
  • Over exercising
  • Fluid retention
  • Toxic loads
  • Smoking
  • Allergies
And most importantly the oxidative stressed which resulted from eating unhealthy diet of processed foods. Oxidative stressed aids in accumulation of free radicals or cell damaging substances in the body.
