Bags / Dark Circles
Under-eye bags and dark circles. You’ve probably heard these similar phrases used interchangeably quite often. However, these are two distinct and separate issues. Let’s start with dark circles. They appear as discolored half-moons under your eyes and can be chronic or exacerbated by lifestyle factors. Bags, on the other hand, are a structural issue caused by fat pads under your eyes. They are genetic, may worsen with age due to collagen loss, and are generally considered harder to treat.
