You feel like people are looking at you so you fiddle with something. Your hair, your clothes, whatever. Now you feel like you've REALLY drawn attention to yourself so you keep at it. It's just making you more nervous!
What you've gotta do is relax yourself instead of fiddling. Be still. Not statue-still, but calm-still. Take some deep breaths, maybe close your eyes.. Relax your body for a moment. I don't know, maybe picture the face of someone you're really comfortable with... Or count backwards from 10 in your head or something... I'm sure there are different relaxation techniques you could do on the spot. All of them are better than rubbing your face or nervously fiddling with something. I know it, I used to do the face thing too. Not so much any more.
Give the other person the benefit of the doubt...
