1) As it was raining heavily, I had to keep sliding the visor of my helmet up to get a better view of the road.
2) As I spoke with her, I noticed that she was slowly sliding her hand up mine.
Can someone please tell me if the above two sentences sound natural? If yes, can someone please suggest alternatives for slide? I somehow feel that I use the word slide quite a lot.
With your second sentence, how about:
As we were talking, I noticed that she was stroking my hand.
If you say "sliding up" then that suggests that her fingers perhaps started at your fingertips and were heading for your wrist. That seems a little strange to me. If she was being romantic and tactile, then I would expect her to be gently stroking your hand.
