How to Care for Your Eyes


The reason we use a specially formulated eye cream is because the skin around the eyes is more fragile, more prone to dryness, and quicker to show age and fatigue. Squinting and constant movement of the eyes also hasten the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and fluids collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles. Eye creams can address some of these issues. 
If you have vision problems such as long sightedness you should get it treated ( eg. wear glasses, contact lenses or eye laser treatment) to prevent eye squinting that might cause more wrinkles. 

If you would like a home or a natural remedy you can grab a cold cucumber, slice it up and put a few on your eyes. This helps to reduce the swelling and puffiness around the eyes. 

When you go out in the sun, be aware that the UV light is harmful to your skin. Slop on plenty of sunscreen and it is better if you wear sunglasses to prevent damage to your skin around the eyes and damage to your vision. 

Eating healthy food such as leafy greens, carrot, pumpkin, egg, almond, citrus fruit and berries, cold fish water (such as salmon, tuna, sardines and mackerel are high in omega 3 fatty acids) could lower the risk of developing macular degeneration, cataracts and can protect against dry eyes.
