    Sometimes they are just genetic. However, they can also be made worse by poor diet, being generally run down, allergies, and all kinds of other things.

    A good eye cream can help a bit, but cannot work miracles (in spite of what it says on the jar).

    Nah it's not that, I only got them when I got to secondry school, and started sleeping less and eating worse.

    Oh well.

    Yeah this is true. Basically it takes down swellings, they also use it on spots, it's more of an old-fashioned method though.
    My mum always tells me to put it on any spots if I'm going out but somehow the idea of putting cream on my face that's normally used for treating piles doesn't really appeal to me.

    Someone asked that question in a magazine I was reading. They said that drinking plenty of water can help general skin problems including under eye bags. Also they recommended Elderflower Eye Gel from The Body Shop priced £3 - might be worth a try. Hope it helps! xx.

    I use Organics Under Eye Cream from Boots, it costs £6 but it lasts such a long time and feels really soothing when you put it on.

    i recommend you visit the beauty message boards on www.ivillage.co.uk - the ladies on there are very helpful about that sort of thing
