4. Lack of sleep

This is a bit of a Goldilocks situation: Not getting enough sleep will leave you with bags under your eyes but so will sleeping too much. Find the right number of hours to sleep that will make you feel rested and at your best so when you wake and you won’t have to endure deep dark bags under your eyes.

Instead, they will begin to shift and you will develop puffy eyes and oftentimes fat will accumulate on your eyelids.
