5 Things you can do right now to fix it.
▪ Prevention ▪Eyelid Crease Exercises
You wake up, you're feeling tired. You stretch, and maybe rub your eyes a bit. Then you grab your cell phone and begin catching up on email, chat messages, etc. Afterwards, when you take a look at the mirror, you finally notice it's one of those days. You have uneven eyelids.
First thing you need to do is understand the cause
to prevent it from happening again.
1. Stop rubbing your eyelids
Changes in the body will happen during puberty. Sometimes, these changes will be with your eyelids. You may start getting double eyelids, or your pre-existing double eyelids will begin to behave like single eyelids. At this point, you can't stop these hormonal changes. But, what you can do is stop rubbing your eyelids!
With indiscriminate eye rubbing, it is more common to interfere with double eyelids, thus changing them to monolids, compared to the other way around, of transforming monolids to double eyelids.
2. Get enough sleep
The quality of your skin depends on the quality of your sleep. If you don't get enough sleep, your skin will be puffy. The puffiness comes from the body retaining too much water in the eyelids. This will interfere with the way the skin moves, thus your double eyelids might become destabilized and turn to monolids.
3. Consume less processed foods before sleeping
Consuming excessive sodium rich foods, such as salty snacks and processed foods, increases the sodium concentration in the blood stream, causing dehydration and triggering the body's homeostatic mechanism, leading to water retention in the tissues and eyelids.
4. Do not use your phone in the morning
In the morning, when your crease is starting to warm up, do not use your cell phone – or even read a book – because your eyes will be looking downwards, preventing your crease from getting the necessary first few hours of folding. If you must use such items, raise the object to eye-level.
Eyelid Crease Exercises
5. TRACING & HOLDING the crease line exercise
These exercises physically stimulate a weakened or weakening crease. They can not create a crease or start a developing crease. If your eyelid crease gets exceptionally weak when you're tired mid-afternoon, these exercises are most effective.
Lubricate the eyelid with lotion.
Find an eyelid tool that has a slightly rounded tip.
Trace over the ideal crease line. Start from the inner corner of the eye and move laterally to the tail-end of the crease. Never go in the opposite direction.
Perform 20 repetitions.
Use your index and middle finger to 'hold' and 'compress' the crease.
