Viva Challenge: keep your eyes looking good

If you have liked last week’s challenge about unblocking your facial lymph nodes, you’re likely going to like this week’s challenge to massage the major acupressure points around your eyes to maintain them well. Again, I picked this up during my facial sessions at True Beauty and have been doing them quite consistently because it is very easy and takes very little of my time.

Focus on the bony rims around the eyes
While I call it a massage, it’s actually just pressing the major acupressure points around the eyes. There are twelve acupressure points to press; six on the inside and six on the outside. The picture above shows the position, where i depicts the positions on the bony rim of your eye socket, while o depicts the positions outside the bony rim.  You can also refer to the diagram on acupressure points for better vision to get an idea but note that I did not include the position – Qiuhou.

How to do self acupressure around your eyes
Using your middle finger, first press on the inside points I’ve illustrated, starting from i1 to i6 and repeat three times. After that, proceed to the outside points, starting from o1 to o6 and repeat three times. Do these on both eyes at the same time. You need to exert some pressure on those points and you can do it anytime you like, once or twice a day.

How this self acupressure help your eyes
Well, I was told that it can help to maintain our eyes, preventing it from drooping and also, keep some of the wrinkling and puffiness at bay.   However, do note that to prevent the lines from showing up or to eliminate some of them, you’ll also need a good eye gel or cream.

While some others have shared their eye massages, but I like this technique because you don’t have to bother about lubricating your eye area and neither do you have to worry about dragging the skin around the delicate region unknowingly. So join me?

    My beautician does something like this during my facial massage. It’s very soothing. =) I try to do it myself during cleansing each day.

    I read this before but there was no detailed instruction so I couldn’t actually try. I tried this twice according to your direction today, I think it really works to slightly depuff the eye bag and making the eye looks better. Thank you so much for the info! Finally I bring something amazing to the eyes. By the way, did ü actually count how many seconds fo each press?

    It makes your eyes feels better doesn’t it? I think it makes my eyes less tired too.

  4. sesame says:

    No, I just pressed and go…I think barely a second. It should be sufficient if you exert sufficient pressure.

  6. Sparklewolfie says:

    Thanks for sharing! I already did the i1 point because I saw it somewhere, and I sometimes would press the lower points too just because it felt nice. It is good to see where all the other points are!

    Also easier to do when you don

  10. sesame says:

    Yes, this one is very easy and can relieve some of the eye tension.

  11. sesame says:

    Yup, I like this cos I don’t have to worry about lubricating my eyes or hurting the delicate skin.

  12. sesame says:

    I haven’t thought about posting before and after. I don’t think the results are immediately visible…the improvements are more accumulative overtime. Plus, I’m also using products on my eye region…
