Even if there are no precise categories or types of eye bags, it is still possible to classify them according to the mechanism implicated in their formation, which lets us establish a diagnosis and find a targeted solution for those who want to improve them.
Waking-up eye bags
During the night, the lymph, which is in charge of transporting the blood’s waste, can accumulate within your lower eyelid. That means that they are temporarily puffy when you wake up, which sometimes gives that tired air which one could do without. This puffiness generally fades during the morning but sometimes that the eye bags can last longer, notably in those people who are suffering from circulation problems.
The eye is found within a cavity, called an eye socket, in which there is a layer of fat which helps the mobility of the eye. With the passage of time and the additional effects of gravity and the sagging of the tissues, this fat slides towards the lower eyelid. The skin distends and puffs up, forming a pocket which permanently sets in.
