What Men Can do to Reduce Eye Bags

Over the past few decades interest in cosmetic products like moisturizers, facial scrubs, fine-line reducers, and more has grown sustainably among men. This is no small wonder, considering men of all ages and backgrounds are interested in health and wellness today as they have never been before. This positive trend ranges from things like how men can be more energized and productive to things like how men can get rid of eye bags. Funny enough, in many cases, the two desires intersect. To think about your health in terms of productivity means to think about being healthy in a sustainable, holistic way.

One positive “side-effect” of holistic thinking is that by improving the overall health of your body you will also improve the appearance of your skin and, thus, will help reduce the appearance of bags under your eyes. In addition to treating cosmetic skin issues from the “inside out” there are also high-quality skincare products out there (from brands like Disco) that are specifically formulated for men. These products can and will help users look their best.


Dehydration is a major cause of cosmetic skin problems. This is because without adequate hydration the skin (and your vital organs) have trouble functioning. Specifically, your skin manifests these problems in the form of dry or dull-looking skin.


Fatigue or tiredness from lack of sleep or overwork can cause eye bags as well as other skin issues. If you are tired or not getting enough sleep, you must make sleep a priority. Seven hours (or more) is the appropriate rule of thumb when it comes to getting enough sleep. Sometimes you need more than seven hours. However, another thing to keep in mind is that sleep quality is also something to consider. Because even if you get seven hours if those hours are constantly disturbed (for instance you have a young child or are constantly getting up to go to the bathroom). Make your sleep a major priority in your overall health.


Broken or damaged capillaries can result in discolored skin under the eyes as well as skin blotches, baggy eyes, and other cosmetic issues. Capillary issues are typically not major medical concerns, but they don’t look particularly great so you may want to either use a concealer and or moisturizer.


If you have bags under your eyes you can and should consider using a high-quality product like those from Disco. Products like moisturizers can help reduce baggy eyes from the outside in, but it’s also important to remember that you should also look at the quality of your skin as symptomatic of possible underlying health issues like capillary damage, lack of sleep, dehydration, and the like. Ideally, if you are trying to optimize your appearance, you can do both: Take care of your body from the inside out, as well as from the outside in. Thinking about your health in an overall, holistic way is an important step in the process of feeling and looking your best.
