    Yes, drinking too much alcohol will cause eye bags. Enjoying a few beers or cocktails once for a while might be just what you need to unwind. However, too much alcohol consumption can amplify under eye bags because it zaps moisture from your skin. Dry skin is weaker and more likely to sink, creating under eye bags. You do not have to cut alcohol out of your diet altogether, but cut back to one drink, followed by some water, to minimize the effects of alcohol on the delicate eye area.

    Yes, you should know that drinking alcohol can lead to eye bags. Nowadays, there are more and more experts who call for quitting drinking, for alcohol will not only be harm to our body health, it can also damage our organs, such as the eyes and heart. For eyes, as we know that most bags under the eyes are the result of accumulated fat in the eye area. When the septum surrounding the eyeball weakens, it will lead to causing the outer layer of fat within the socket to sink forward. Then in this way, they can make it look like you have literal "bags" under your eyes. And if you keep drinking, it will cause eye bags, because by drinking, it can lead to a complex interaction between your body and the same kind of chemical reaction that produces bruises.
