The eyes and the surrounding area take a lot of strain in our day to day lives. This can result in lines, wrinkles, bags and puffiness meaning the eye area looks tired and aged. By using a few simple techniques from The Danielle Collins Face Yoga Method, the wear and tear of this area can be softened, reduced and even reversed.
Try these four exercises, once a day for the next month, and your eye muscles will become stronger, your skin will produce more collagen and elastin and your circulatory system will become more effective at eliminating toxins.
Put both your middle fingers together between your eyebrows then apply pressure to the outer corners of your eyes with your index fingers.
