An eyelid eyes massage is still another way to achieve healthier eyes and to look better. This kind of massage lets you avoid sleepiness and helps you pump up the energy level for the day.
The reason for sleepiness is the lack of natural secreted oils. The oils are held in the glands of your eyelids. When the day turns to evening and eventually night, as usually occurs, these oils reduce and your eyes get dryer. Therefore, in some cases, such as lack of sleep, dealing with your computer, and forgetting to blink your eyes often, or just at night your eyes may close many times involuntarily. The dryness is the reason for that and it is one of the causes of sleep.
The following technique of eyelid massage allows you to squeeze more oils and enzymes to the surface of the eyeball and thus wake you up. Hold your hand so that it is facing your palm and put your thumb opposite the other four fingers. Place your hand on your eyes, placing the four fingers on the upper lid and your thumb on the lower lid. Then apply extremely gentle pressure squeezing the eyelid towards the lash line and work some oil from the glands within the eyelid. You will feel the results instantly. The eye dryness will go away and once again you will be wide awake and kicking.
This way of eyes massage is also great redness, itchy eyes, and the burning feeling. This eyes massage is very popular with long distance pilots, night shift workers, and frequent business flyers with their internal combat with jet-lag and sleepiness.
