If you’re bothered by drooping eyelids and sagging, wrinkled skin around your eyes, both injections and restorative surgical options can help make your eyes look more youthful.
As you age, your skin gradually loses its elasticity and begins to droop all over, but the effect is most obvious on your face — especially around the eyes.
The condition you are experiencing is called ptosis, which refers to drooping of an upper eyelid of one or both eyes. It can be present at birth or develop later in life due to ageing, injury or as an after-effect of eye surgery. Ptosis (droopy eyelids) is a common condition among the elderly, though it can also be a birth defect or a result of an eye injury or disease. In case of inborn ptosis, the eyes appear droopy due to poor development of the eyelid muscles regulating the proper opening of the eyes. Ptosis can affect one eye or both eyes, and is often asymmetrical, meaning, each eye droops differently.
Ptosis isn’t just giving your face a tired appearance. It can come with vision complications, such as astigmatism, obstruction of visual axis, a chin-up head position, and amblyopia (lazy eye).
Ptosis can occur if the muscles or ligaments that normally raise the eyelid are weakened, whether by injury or ageing. As a person gets older, the skin and muscles of the eyelids naturally stretch and become weaker. Those who have undergone eye surgery might experience this change faster than others because the surgery itself can stretch the eyelid.
The severity of the condition ranges from a barely noticeable droop to the lid covering the entire pupil, which can affect ability to see, as well as appearance.
Here are some of the best natural remedies that can help you get rid of your droopy eyelids:
The secret ingredient behind the miraculous treatment is one egg.
People have been using eggs in their natural remedies for ages and they can truly help you improve your appearance.
Here’s how to treat your droopy eyelids naturally:
- Remove the makeup from your face, clean it thoroughly and dry it well.
- Remove the yolk from one egg since you’re only going to need the egg white. Apply the egg white directly on your eyelids with a cotton swab. Don’t let the egg white enter your eyes. Leave the egg white on until it dries. Wash your face with lukewarm water and dry it with a towel.
- Use the remedy every day and you’ll see amazing results in just 2-3 days.
Perform eye exercises
Forcing the use of the affected eye and eyelid muscles for a few minutes each hour can help build the muscle’s tolerance and improve your ptosis, according to the National Stroke Association. Try moving your eyes in figure-eight movements or rolling your eyes to make a full rotation. Keep in mind, in order for the eye exercises to work, you have to do the exercises for a few minutes every hour while you’re awake. This means, you can’t simply roll your eyes one or two times and consider yourself done. To ensure you complete the exercises properly, try exercising your eyes during a commercial break or set a timer to keep track of the length of time.
