Why have I developed a lip/nose twitch?

In the last few months, I have developed some sort of twitch or compulsion that causes my nose and upper lip to twitch, much like when you're about to sneeze or you have an allergy.
It's not a twitch so much...it's not rapid. I just keep flexing, for lack of a better word, my nose and upper lip, as though there's a bee on it and I'm trying to shoo it off without using my hands. So much so that the muscles that do this can actually get tired.
It seems like this began when I got a new pair of sunglasses. They're a little large, and they touch my face in places previous glasses did not. I caught myself moving my nose while wearing them, but now I still do it when not wearing the glasses.
It's not involuntary...if I think about it, I don't do it. But if I don't think about it, the lip sneers and the nose flairs.
How can I put this to an end?
