5 facial exercises to target the eye area
Combat fine lines under the eyes
Partially wink with just one eye, keeping the other open. Hold this position for one second whilst ensuring that you are contracting all of the muscles around the eye. Then release and repeat 20-25 times.
Banish crow’s feet
This exercise is perfect for reducing the appearance of fine lines in the corners of the eyes. Firstly relax the face, then keep your eyes open and lift your lower eyelids without moving the upper ones. Hold for 1-2 seconds before releasing and repeating 20-25 times.
Stimulate blood circulation
Place your three middle fingers underneath each eye and gently pull downwards to open each eye further. As you do this, try to close your eyes, working all the muscles around them. Hold for a period of 8-10 seconds before releasing and repeating five times.
Upper eyelid work-out
Start by using your fingertips to gently lift your eyebrows upwards and outwards. Then use your muscles to try and counteract this movement by pushing your brows back down, holding for 8-10 seconds. Repeat this exercise five times for a natural brow lift.
Gentle toning for the entire eye area
Press two fingers on each of your temples and rapidly open and close your eyelids in a blinking motion for a period of 8-10 seconds. Rest and repeat this five times.
