Getting rid of bags under the eyes involves placing cucumber slices over the eyes as an anti-inflammatory and massaging an eye balm with cucumber or licorice extract under the eyes to eliminate lymphatic drainage. Eliminate under-eye bags with beauty advice from a certified aesthetician in this free video on skin care.
Hi I'm Kelli and I am an Aesthetician and makeup artist at Ulta Salon and Cosmetics and I'm going to talk to you a little bit about how to get rid of bags around the eyes. One thing that you can do is either go to the store and get a cucumber and cut off the cucumber and slap it on the eye which is a very good anti-inflammatory and depuffing. This is actually a puffy eye balm that has cucumber extract in it. It also has licorice extract in it which is a brightening agent so you can just take a little bit of this and you can pat it right around the eye and then what you want to do is you want to take your ring finger, you always want to use your ring finger and actually move in a clockwise motion around the eye and what this does is this is sort of a lymphatic drainage move so it helps to drain any congestion around the eye area plus it stimulates circulation so it is going to help basically make that blood that really lays close to the surface kind of circulate and move around so you don't have so much darkness and you can do a little pressure point right there. This is a sinus pressure point and you might feel that you have got a little gunk in the back of your throat but it helps you drain your sinuses and you can see by looking at her this eye definitely has more of a brighter smoother more lifted appearance than the other eye so that just kind of is a little lymphatic drainage you can move to help get rid of bags under the eye.
