Exercise for Muscles Around the Eyes


Hi, I’m Tom and I want to show you an exercise
that will tone up all the muscles around the eyes – the lower and the upper eyelids. This
is an area of the face that can start to look bad after the age of forty, and even before
the age of forty. This exercise will take care of the problem relatively fast if you
do it correctly and at least three or four times a week. By relatively fast I mean in
a few months – well, maybe a little longer than this if the area under the eyes is really
in bad shape. Place your fingers here. You’ll feel the rim
of the orbital bone, also called the bony socket. Hollowness below this rim is usually
due to fat loss in the upper cheek – the malar fat pads. Facial exercise will probably not
help the problem of this fat loss but facial exercise done correctly can still do a lot
to keep the area around the eyes in good shape. But this hollowness, depression, and dark
circles can also be caused by weak, loose muscles around the eyes. These lax muscles
can be toned up by the exercise I’m going to show you. When these muscles are toned
up, the hollowness, depression, and dark circles, sometimes referred to as the tear trough,
will vanish, or at least become less visible. After applying some lubrication to the skin
around the eyes, place your fingers right here. The pressure applied will be gentle
but it’ll be enough to give sufficient resistance to the muscles around the eyes. Now while
you’re maintaining a steady resistance, close your eyes tightly and hold the contraction
for a second or two. You’ll feel the muscles in both the upper and lower eyelids working
strongly. Just contract the eyelids, especially the
lower eyelids. But don’t scrunch up your face when you’re doing the exercise, and don’t
frown. There is no need for this and it’s counterproductive. Hold each contraction for
a second or two. I usually do several sets of 25 reps and I do this exercise almost every
day. And, by the way, good time of day to do this exercise is while you’re lying in
bed in the morning before you get up. It feels refreshing. In a few months you’ll start to see an improvement
in the way the muscles and skin around the eyes start to look. This really is an effective
exercise for firming up all the muscles around the eyes – the orbicularis oculi muscles – and
it’s also an effective exercise for preventing and even getting rid of hooded upper eyelids. Take a look at the attractive woman following
this. Maybe if she did this exercise she would not have these hooded eyelids. But hooded
eyelids or not, she is still an attractive woman. Anyway, try this exercise out and stay with
it for a while. I think you’ll like the results. Thanks
