Many of us take our eyes for granted assuming that they’ll always be there to guide us through life. Undoubtedly the quality of our sight diminishes as we age but there are a number of things we can do to care for our eyes and keep 20:20 vision as long as we can. Here’s my top tips on how to care for your eyes, plus you’ll get the chance to win this fabulous Makeup Forever Basics eye set.
Wear sunglasses in bright light
Direct sunlight is incredibly strong and looking directly into it can severely damage your eyes. Always wear sunglasses with adequate UVA and UVB protection when you’re out and about on a bright sunny day.
Take regular breaks from your computer
If you regularly work around computers you may note your eyes feeling dry, heavy and even blurry. Make sure you take regular breaks to give your eyes a rest from the bright light. If you find yourself squinting or straining you may need glasses or an adjustment of your prescription. Display size can also be adjusted if you struggle to read the screen.
Wear safety glasses
If you work in dangerous environments like laboratories or around sharp objects, safety glasses are a must. They will protect your eyes from blindness should an accident occur and a foreign object ending up hitting your face. The same should be taken into account for certain sports where flying objects may hit you.
Give up the fags
Smoking isn’t just bad for your lungs and respiratory system; it can also have devastating consequences on your eyes. Smoking can lead to cataracts, damage to the optic nerve and deterioration of the retina.
Have a healthy diet
A diet that’s rich in high nutrients and vitamins does wonders for your body, brain and eyes. By keeping to a healthy diet and limiting your intake of fatty junk food you’re lowering your chances of obesity which ultimately leads to type 2 diabetes. In case you weren’t aware diabetes is the leading cause of early blindness and other health conditions.
Get your eyes tested regularly
Your eyesight may seem fine but there may be a underlying condition you haven’t discovered yet. Avoid the risk and get your eyes checked at least every year.
In celebration of keeping your eyes healthy I am giving you the chance to win this fabulous Makeup Forever Eye Basics Set. In the set you’ll find Makeup Forever Sens’Eyes waterproof sensitive eye cleanser, Makeup Forever Excessive Lash mascara and Makeup Forever Aqua XL eyeliner.
