As we age our body produces less collagen and elastin, which play a key role in making our skin firm, supple and youthful.

- Consumption of smoke and caffeine infested beverages in excess
All packed goods, like a packet of crisps and food in tin cans, are loaded with a very high amount of Sodium which causes fluid retention, which further aids in de-hydrating our body of the necessary amount of fluid. More such examples that add to this list are soft drinks, white flour, refined sugar or any drink with a high ratio of caffeine.

Although we are hydrating our bodies from the inside by keeping up with our fluid intake of drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day. We still need to take care of our skin from the outside. The skin where the under eye bags form is very thin and needs to handled with care.
