Three easy facial exercises to remove eye bags at home. Covering eyebags with makeup can be difficult for most makeup pros and will be even harder to get rid of for a none makeup pro. Age is often the main reason why people have puffy eyes, however, people in their twenties and thirties can get puffy eyes too. Whether your eyebags are as a result of sleepless nights, alcohol-related condition, or just plain old age, we have some tips for you to help you get rid of your eye bags fast, and at home. Here are three facial exercises to remove eye bags at home that anybody can try with success if done properly.
- 1) Lower Lid Lift
According to Deborah Crowley, the founder of the ‘flex effect’ which is a facial treatment regime, building the palpebral muscles which builds and firms the lower lid is one of the most effective techniques to rid yourself of eye bags. This gets rid of the appearance of eye bags and dark circles around the eyes when done properly. Here is how. Using your three middle fingers of each hand, pull your lower lid down and hold them on top of your cheekbones. At the same time, try and close the lower lids to contract the muscles. Do this for 1 minute at a time, repeat two times.
- 2) Lower eyelid strengthens
Put your forefinger on the outer corners of your eyes while putting your middle fingers on the inner comers of the eye sockets. Look upwards towards the ceiling while applying slight pressure. Then lift your lower lids up without squinting. If your eyes are twitching beneath your fingers you are completing the exercise correctly. Repeat ten times a day over a 7-day period for best results.
- 3) Yoga
Yoga is amazing for getting rid of eye bags because it gets to the root of the cause, eliminating the problem. Asanas (a posture in which people hold) that apply pressure to the head allow fresh blood to gush forward working wonders for the eyes bringing them back to their shiny selves. One such yoga exercise is the wheel bend. This is a backbend which forms the shape of a wheel. To compete for this posture, lie down on the floor with your knees bent. Place the palms of your hands backward beside the ears and push your body up supporting yourself with your arms and legs. Hold this posture for 30 seconds and then repeat.
Follow these three facial exercises to remove eye bags at home daily and be as consistent as you possibly can. Rest after seven days, give yourself a couple of days of break, then evaluate your situation, and repeat for seven more days. When you feel that you have achieved the result you were looking for, then stop, and do the routines once or twice a week for maintenance purposes.
