Maybe his lack of sleep could be the reason for him getting eye bags underneath his eyes. Under his eyes, he has minor edema and heaviness. Because his muscles no longer supported his eyelids, the delicate tissues around his eyes began to deteriorate. In the recent pictures of him, it could be seen the disappearance of those eyes bags. Either Jason has had his eyes treated or he has coved himself with make-ups.
