Eyebags or sunken undereyes happen as a result of ageing due to stretching ligaments, fat pad sagging, and bone loss. These cause the tissues around the eye area to droop and look hollow – giving the skin under the eyes to appear dark and sunken. Most will begin to notice common signs of eyebags in their late 30s or early 40s.

- Hollow undereyes
- A dark shadow over the lower eyelids
- Dark circle beneath the eyes
- Thin-looking skin under the eyes
