I noticed I have fine lines under my eyes already. I'm only 24! The good news is I only see them when I put foundation on under my eyes. The bad news is that I'm worried I am aging early.

How can I get rid of these?

Also, I'm more concerned about fine lines since I have been living with minor bags my whole life.

Also, I have always had bags under my eyes. I think I was born with them!


Thanks!

It's a good idea to start now with preventative care. I'd recommend a product for night time like Lauder's Advanced Night Repair for the eye area, and maybe Clinique All About Eyes Serum for day, something that will take care of that puffiness. Good luck!

With bags you have to use an artists trick. You need concealer two shades lighter than your foundation (or skin) and you need to pat and blend out a line right under the bags to highlight that area. It sounds wrong, but the reason they are so noticeable is the shadow they create -- take away the shadow and the bags disappear.

Darker can work too. It depend on the color and face shape. But basically don't use the same color thats all over your face. Matte finish is the best choice if you do cover that area. Shine makes things look bigger and stand out. It can also settle in fine lines.

The cover you use on your bags can create these bags too by drying the skin or just highlighting them in a way that makes them stand out. If you use too light a color to try to cover dark circles below the bags that can make them stand out too.

I would try a different color and formulation to cover that area. From your posts it sounds like that eye area is just getting to need less drying types of makeup and treatment. Poor hydration of skin or body will also create bags. Too much junk/salt/hormone issues as well. Basically anything that can cause water retention can add to the bag issue.

I cannot recommend raw shea butter enough for any/all skin problems!

Look into it.
