Eye bags is the term used in Singapore to describe swelling, sagging and puffiness under the eyes. Dark circles usually occur with eye bags as well, as the skin under the eyes darken due to constriction of blood vessels.

What are the common causes eye bags in Singapore?

Eye bags form when the muscles and skin tissue around the eyes start to weaken. This causes your skin to sag, and fluid starts to accumulate below the eyes.
