You are here
You are holding onto a slightly nostalgic memory: for the first thirty years of your life, the skin on your face was supple, well-hydrated and taut. You had a radiant complexion and when you lacked sleep the signs of tiredness quickly faded - one night’s rest, some healthier food and they went away!
Since then, it hasn’t been the same story. Over years, ageing leads to numerous changes in the structure of the skin, in its organisation and capacity to renew its cells. These changes, invisible at first, end up by lingering, notably around the eyes or appearing and installing themselves permanently.
Distinguish between dark circles and eye bags
Under the eyes, between the lower eyelid and the top of the cheekbone, the skin can darken or hollow into dark circles. They should not be confused with eye bags, which relate to puffiness of the lower eyelid.
These signs of passing time don’t concern everyone since their appearance is primarily linked to heredity. Some women, whatever their age, will never have bags under the eyes!
However, beyond genetic inheritance, other factors promote the appearance of eye bags. And it is precisely those that it is possible to tackle.
