I Have Bag Under My Eye

March 25, 2009

Oh wise blog readers, can you help me solve a problem?

I have bag under my eye. Not bags, mind you, as in under both eyes. Just under one.

Anyone know why I am having this phenomenon? The eye in question is my right eye. I sleep on my back or on my LEFT side generally, and I use two pillows.

Any ideas?

I am intentionally drinking more water and for the next few days am going to avoid salting my food to see if that helps. Any more thoughts?

Also, my brown eyes have been turning hazel for some time now. Anyone else have this happen? Apparently it’s quite common and has no real implications in terms of health.

Don’t mind me, I’m just having a bit of an existential crisis about no longer being a “brown eyed girl”. :)

    I have hazel eyes! I think hazel eyes are fantastic!
    As for the bag under only one eye… thats a good question!!! I would think if you were laying on the same side that the problem was on I would blame it on that. But since its on the oposite.. well I guess maybe gravity, maybe because there is more blood flow to the left side of your face that is closest to the pillow. I am not even close to being a doctor LOL. I have no idea!!!
    I think that drinking more water and avoiding salt is a good idea though. Hey didnt you post about dark eye circles in your natural beauty treatements about the potato under your eye? Now you gotta chance to try it out! I still havent tried it yet for my eye circles. Been so busy!
