Skin around the eyes is the most delicate one and little bit of carelessness can result into irreversible damage to the eye area. I can say so with personal experience because I was never careful about this in my teenage and used everything from harsh towels to dupattas etc at my under-eye. Result: am just 24 but have 2 lines under my eyes and no matter howsoever careful I am now, the damage is already done.
What I feel about the under eye lines and bags is that you can definitely prevent them from appearing or increasing with time by using a good moisturizing under eye cream but once they have appeared, you cannot get rid of them unless you go for botox etc. As far as under eye dark circles
