The eyes are said to be the window to the soul. As cliche as it may sound, they are also a window into your health.

Continue reading to find out what they truly mean and how you can treat them.
Crow’s Feet are also known as wrinkles and fine lines. They are the first creases to form on the face, usually beginning in your mid-twenties. They are those annoying little lines that form around the outer corners of your eyes and eye bags.
They begin as fine lines that gradually spread over time. They are normal when you are smiling and laughing and tend to become a regular fixture in your mid-to-late thirties. However, they make you appear older, spoiling the look of make-up, and becoming exacerbated when you wear spectacles. Crow’s feet can also be a sign of dehydration or nutritional deficiency.
Eye Bags & Dark Circles
Dark circles and Eyebags are commonly used interchangeably, they are both different conditions. The main difference is that, dark circles are defined by the darkening of the under-eye skin, eyebags are defined by swelling around the eyes.
Mild swelling or puffiness around the eyes is known as bags under the eyes. They are frequent as you grow older and the tissue around your eyes, especially the muscles that support your eyelids, deteriorate. Fat that supports the eyes can then migrate into the lower eyelids, hence making them puffy.
When you’re exhausted or lacking sleep, dark circles can form beneath your eyes. If you have dark circles under your eyes while being well rested, it is possible that something other than exhaustion is at work. Dark circles can also be caused by allergies or even dietary deficits.
