Under eye bags can look unsightly on anyone, no doubt about that!

However, there are also many natural remedies for under eye bags you can use successfully at home. Some remedies work better and faster than others and that’s what we’re going to be looking at in this post!
Here are 6 effective natural remedies for under eye bags:
Top 6 Natural Remedies for Under Eye Bags
1. Cool Compress
This is one of the easiest natural remedies for under eye bags. All you need to do is make a cool compress. Do this by wetting a soft washcloth with cold water. Wring it out well then start getting dabbing it on your eyes for a few minutes. Keep wetting and wringing out the washcloth in cold water as it gets warm. This remedy quickly reduces swelling and puffiness. It works best for under eye bags caused by crying, sleep deprivation, fluid retention and allergies.
2. Chamomile Tea Bags
Chamomile tea bags are incredibly soothing. Make yourself some nice warm chamomile tea then don’t discard the tea bags! Let them cool down a bit until they’re warm then squeeze them a bit to remove the excess tea. Now place the tea bags in the refrigerator to chill. Meanwhile, sip up the chamomile tea to help remove excess fluids from your body. When you’re done, get the chilled chamomile tea bags out of the fridge. Then lie down on a flat surface like your bed or the couch then close your eyes and place the chamomile tea bags on them. Stay still for about 7-10 minutes to let the tea bags do their magic. If you don’t have chamomile tea bags, use green tea bags or regular black tea bags. They’ll also work!
3. Elevate your Head when Sleeping
If you tend to wake up with under eye bags every day, then you gotta do something about your sleeping position. If you sleep on your tummy or facing downwards, stop that habit and try sleeping on your back. You can also prop your head up with an extra pillow to elevate your head. This will prevent fluids from pooling under your eyes during the night which will prevent under eye bags from forming.
4. Use Essential Oils
Not long ago, I talked about the best essential oils for under eye bags. These essential oils really do work. They help promote blood flow and reduce fluid retention which is the main cause of under eye bags. The top essential oils to use are rosemary, geranium and cypress.
Now to use essential oils for under eye bags, simply get a small jar and fill it up with 2 tbsp of witch hazel. Now add 4 drops rosemary oil, 4 drops geranium oil and 4 drops cypress oil. Mix everything up and your DIY under eye bag mixture is ready! Apply a pea-sized amount on each under eye bag every time you wake up. Do not get the mixture into your eyes. This remedy works for all types of under eye bags, even those caused by aging.
5. Cooling Cucumber Slices
This is a popular remedy for puffy eyes and under eye bags. It also feels heavenly on tired eyes! Simply wash and cut 2 slices off a fresh cucumber. Lie down and place the cool cucumber slices on your eyes for 10 minutes. This reduces redness and gets rid of the puffiness!
6. Potato Slices
Don’t have cucumber at home? Potato slices will do! They have the same property as cucumber for cooling the eyes, promoting drainage of fluids and reducing puffiness. And a bonus: potatoes help lighten dark circles!
