Fluids, nutrition: You can't really get rid of bags under your eyes at the age of 50. And if you are concerned about a kidney problem, see your doctor, although I am unaware of bags under the eyes signifying a kidney problem. Make sure you are getting plenty of fluids, an average of 7 hours of sleep/night, and good nutrition. Good luck.
