4 years ago

Every day we read and see a lot of information. This puts almost constant tension on our eyes. That’s why they get tired! Many vision problems arise precisely from the act of overstraining like dry eyes, redness, and blurred vision. But sometimes your eyes need a rest and eye exercises can help this.

Bright Side wants to share 11 simple eye relaxation exercises with you that don’t take much time at all.

1. Shutters

Blink quickly and slightly for 2 minutes. It improves blood circulation.

2. Dot on the glass

Draw a dot on the window. Select a distant object outside the window. For a few seconds, look into the distance then transfer your eyes to the dot. Repeat 5 times.

3. Big eyes

Sit up straight. Close your eyes tightly for 5 seconds, then open them wide. Repeat this 8-10 times. This exercise strengthens the eyelid muscles, improves blood circulation, and helps to relax the muscles of the eyes.

4. Warm palms

Close your eyes for a few minutes and imagine something pleasant to relax. Then rub the palms of your hands until they become warm. Cover your eyes with your hands. After a minute, open your eyes.

5. Massage

With your fingers, gently press the upper eyelids. After 1-2 seconds, remove your fingers from the eyelids. Repeat 3 times. Such a massage can improve the circulation of intraocular fluid.

6. Contrast shower

Rinse your eyes twice a day. In the morning, do it with warm water, then cold. In the evening, do it in the reverse order, first with cold water, then with warm.

7. Eyes on the nail

Extend your hand in front of you, put your thumb up and look at your thumb nail. Slowly bring your hand to your nose and take it away again. Repeat this 10 times.

This has been the only product which has been able to impact my baggie under-eyes! After many years of allergies, little sleep, lots of sun, and basically not taking care of my skin, I started using products to try to deal with the bags under my eyes. I figured after years of damage and carelessness, it would take years to make difference with any over-the-counter product. Surprisingly, my wife and I noticed a tightening of the skin under my eyes within the first couple of weeks of using DermalMD under eye Treatment Line Smoothing AntiAging Retinol Eye Cream.


One more really good exercise is called the palming. It helps to relax your eyes to make them warm, which is really important if you want to restore your vision
Rub your hands on each other cross the and out them on your eye area. The most important is to fully relax your body and eyes, and let your hands warm them up.
