Can women and men develop bags under their eyes

The simple answer to this question is a big yes. Bags may develop under both men and women’s eyes. This might happen due to various reasons that you might even notice and know. Some of the reasons can be lack of sleep, the gravitational pressures, fat, eye fatigue and strain. However some of these reasons cannot be avoided. For example the eye bags created as a result of extensive expose to gravitational pulls with the age cannot be avoided. Just like everything on earth, your skin is too attracted to the earth as a result of the gravitational forces created.

The fat deposits in your upper and lower eye lids can fight against eye bags under your eyes. With the age these lower and upper eye muscles weaken and cannot hold up the skin as tightly as it was when you were young. Therefore the fats might now be weak and will not be a resistant to eye bags anymore. On the other hand with the age the protein levels too change that might also develop bags under your eyes. The low protein levels will deteriorate your skin healthiness and will weaken your muscles and tissues resulting in the development of bags under your eyes.
