Getting older brings some unwanted side-effects, which especially affect our look. Our faces become full of lines and wrinkles and the skin loses the elasticity, starting to sag with time. The first symptoms of the aging process are most noticeable in the eye area, as the muscles and tissues grow old and the collagen production is reduced. Natural fluids and fats accumulate in the area and the skin becomes loose.

All of this leads to puffiness and dark circles under the eyes which are the first signs of aging. However, there are other factors that cause these issues such as hormonal changes, not getting enough sleep or stress. Lifestyle habits such as smoking and drinking can also cause saggy eyelids, and your genes surely play a part in making you look older than you are. The saggy eyelids tire the eye muscles, making it difficult to apply makeup. The eyeliner and eye shadow you used before are not visible at all on the saggy skin.
