Nearly everyone has had a long night of working, or partying, and woken up the following morning with bags under their eyes. When your body lacks sleep, your eyes don’t get the necessary time to rest and relax. The result is a formation of droopy skin under the eyes that give the appearance of bags.If you believe this is the culprit, try to get on a better schedule with at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
You may hear people say that anaemia can be one of the cause’s for having bags under our eyes.Well this could be the case but it can easily be treated with the right foods and right diet.People get anaemia when there is not enough oxygen getting to the right body tissue.
Another easily preventable cause for bags under the eyes is poor diet.

It may be hard for some people to change their diet completely, but try and add in more fruits and vegetables and eat less processed foods.

Allergies is another common cause for developing these dark circles under your eyes.
