Why do my eyes twitch? We’ve all had this happen at one point or another. Maybe you stayed up late studying or perhaps you stared at your computer for hours on end. Either way, eye twitching can be extremely annoying and hard to get rid of. Most of us don’t require medical attention for involuntary eye twitching.
Don’t you hate when your eyelid starts contracting on its own? Especially at the most inconvenient time! I used to experience multiple eye twitches and sometimes there were different muscles involved. All of the advices to reduce caffeine intake were just myths. None of the antihistamine pills worked. None of the relaxing mind exercises helped. My eyelids kept twitching. My eyebrows were jumping on their own upper cheeks were still convulsing. But I found out how to stop all of upper face muscle dance. The solution is so easy that most of the people with severe eye twitching problems do not even believe in it!
1.Start with hard blinking. Close your eyes as tight as possible. Squeeze them as much as you can and then suddenly open up unexpectedly wide. Execute this type of blinking until the tears burst out of your eyes.
2. Massage lightly your bottom eyelids in a circular motion using your middle fingers.
3.Blink for a half a minute. Try to do that with adequate speed, and at the same time, make the movements very light. Imagine that your eyelashes are butterfly’s wings. The process of blinking is extremely important to your eyes – it relaxes most of the eye muscles, lubricates and cleanses the eyeballs.
4. Close your eyes halfway down. You will notice that your upper eyelids constantly tremble with different amplitude. Concentrate your efforts on stopping this trembling.
5. Blink for a minute with your eyes closed.
6. Spend 2 minutes to give yourself an Acupressure Massage
7. If you can do any Eye Hydrotherapy Procedures
