Beautiful ladies, just for the record. Make up your mind which problem exactly you are fighting with: if you suffer from under eye bags, but use a cream against bruises or wrinkles, you will only worsen your skin condition.



Some women are too naive and believe that manufacturers of modern cosmetics are so responsible that create only such products that have no side-effects. In reality, not all of the products contain a note “hypo allergic” which means that after applying such lotions you are risking to wake up with severe palpebral oedema and extreme mucosal lining inflammation. That’s why before making a purchase carefully study the content of the cream for under eye bags: the content should be marked on the box of the product.

The most recommended ingredients that are capable of smoothening the lines in this zone of the face are:

  • Hyaluronic acid;
  • various kinds of plant extracts, like: horse-chestnut, green tea, chamomile, line, mint;
  • essential oils of sandal, rosemary, geranium;
  • collagen and elastin;
  • vitamins: retinol (A), ascorbic acid ( C), tocopherol (E), calciferol (K).

If you want to find the most effective cream for under eye bags, make sure that it contains at least few of the components listed above. If you see a lot of chemical formula and unknown words, make a translation and explanation before purchasing the product to determine how safe it is for sensitive and gentle skin in this area of the face. However, content is not the only one criteria for choosing the life saving remedy.

Useful advice. Even if you never noticed any sort of allergic reaction from your body, every new beauty product targeting the area around your eyes should be tested for allergens, in order to avoid a long term treatment afterwards.
