Bags can form under the eyes because of aging, fluid retention, lack of sleep, allergies and even genetics. Regardless of the cause, eye bags can make you look older than you are and diminish the overall appearance of your skin. While the store shelves are flooded with products claiming to get rid of eye bags, many are pricey and require daily applications. Opt for a natural and inexpensive remedy to banish the bags -- green tea. The anti-oxidants in the tea will help to reduce puffiness and soften the skin around the eyes.
Place two green-tea bags into a pot of water. Put the pot on the stove over high heat and bring the water to a boil.
Turn the heat off. Let the tea bags steep for 30 minutes.
Remove the tea bags carefully from the hot water. Place them in a bowl and put them in the refrigerator for a few hours to chill.
Squeeze each tea bag gently to remove the excess water when the bags are very cold. Lay down in a comfortable spot and place a tea bag over each eye.
Leave the tea bags on your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this process daily until the bags are gone.
