One of the best non-surgical ways to tighten droopy eyelids and reduce wrinkles under the eyes is eyelid exercises. It refers for prevention of these effects.

Miracles are happen no more. Don’t believe the tales about magic creams or exercises that in 3-5 days your skin around the eyes will be young and supple.

If you are not lazy, get good face. You need to do exercises every day for a period 2-4 weeks long to achieve visible results. Keep those states of muscles thereafter, making the exercises at least 2-3 times per week?

Eye Exercises. How to Tighten Droopy Eyelids and Prevent Wrinkles under the Eyes

It takes only 5-7 minutes. Take time for yourself. Do not forget about the correct skin care.

All exercises must be done 5-7 times. After each one, relax the muscles by blink.


Warm up

  • Widely open and close your eyes without straining other muscles. Do that 10 times.
  • Sculpt brows. Pinch from the inner edge to the outer by thumb and forefinger.

Exercises for the upper eyelid

  1. Fix the position of the brows with three fingers. Squeeze eyelids strongly, count to three, open.
  2. Secure the corners of the eyes with index and middle fingers. Close your eyes, press upper eyelid down to lower. Count to three.

Exercises for the lower eyelid

  1. Secure the corners of the eyes by middle and index fingers. Look up. “Pull” the lower eyelid up. Count to three.
  2. Repeat the same with your closed eyelids.

Exercises for orbicularis oculi muscle

  1. Lock eye corners with your two fingers. Blink eyes one by one.
  2. Draw a figure “eight” by your eyes.
  3. Roll the eyes around in a circle; to the right then to the left.

Exercises for “expressive eyes”

  1. Open your eyes as wide as possible without straining other muscles of the face.

Make sure that the rest of the muscles on the face are not strained, otherwise it will lead to the formation of additional wrinkles.

    heyy.. these exercises are great. actually i have been wearing glasses since 10 years and my eyes have drooped.. i did these exercises for around a month and changes are quite visible. but the problem is my left upper eyelid has become bigger than my right eyelid. can this be fixed by these exercises or not ?

    If you observe an asymmetry try to do next:
    – within a month do three exercises for both eyes
    – and three exercises for the eye with digger eyelid to work it separately
    (during exercises cover other eye by your hand to release eye muscles to work)

    Do i need to “pull” the lower eyelid up to lower?

  • Irina  October 6, 2016 at 15:43

    Excuse me please, but your question is not clear to me.

  • Halo  October 6, 2016 at 21:46

    How do i lower the inner corner of the eye?

  • Igor  October 10, 2016 at 20:11

    What i meant to ask is does the exersice for the lower eyelid will lift the eyelid up or down

  • Irina  October 30, 2016 at 09:48

    Exercise does not lift the eyelid up or down. It strengthens the muscles, to avoid wrinkles and bags under the eyes.

  • Irina  October 30, 2016 at 09:53

    Just do exercises. It keeps muscles toned and prevent an eyelid to fall.

    I have found holding the lower face exercises for a count of ten has been useful. The eyes for a count of seven. I am 70 and looking at a face I remember at 50, Wish I had taken before and after. Thank-you! Charles

  • Charles  November 4, 2016 at 21:51

    Thank-you for your exercises. I do 7 of each and hold each for a slow count of 7. I am looking at a face I saw 20 years ago. I’m feeling ‘hot’ again! Thanks, Charles

  • Irina  November 6, 2016 at 19:46

    Dear Charles, I am happy for you!
    Keep doing exercises. Thanks for sharing.
