Eye Health Tips: Secrets to Gorgeous Eyes
You don’t need heaps of scientific research to understand how the eyes can be used to attract others. Think about it – a smoldering gaze, a seductive stare, a come-hither glance…there’s a lot you can do to draw focus to yourself using your eyes. Of course, it’s not enough that you know how to gaze, stare, or glance like a goddess. Eye health is an important factor as you don’t want to be casting looks at the wrong person. As early as now, you should be taking good care of your eyes, and not just because they are the “windows to your soul.” No one wants to have eye problems, especially when some eye conditions are preventable.
Best Foods for Eye Health
Just as diet and exercise can give you the body that you want, these lifestyle choices can also help preserve your sight. Don’t forget that your eyes should be nourished with oxygen and nutrients that support excellent vision. On that note, you should try to eat foods rich in vitamins C and E, as well as zinc and beta carotene, which are said to slow down the progression of AMD or advanced age-related macular degeneration. Supplementation is also good – you can look into lutein and zeaxanthin to prevent cataracts or you can load up on green leafy vegetables, which are good sources of these two compounds.
Dark Circles, Puffiness, and Wrinkles
Beyond eating right, taking supplements, and seeing an eye doctor (regularly, if you have an eye condition), there are certain things you can do to improve the appearance of your eyes. Don’t worry, this still qualifies as eye health measures since dark circles and puffiness are often caused by a health condition, for example: allergies, nasal congestion, pigmentation irregularities, and so on. In these cases, you should try to resolve the cause of the problem before you try to experiment with different types of eye creams, eye serums, and eye patches. Otherwise, when the contributing factors are heredity or loss of collagen due to aging, you can try the offerings in store and online or even the solutions recommended by your dermatologist.
Makeup: Safety Issues
There’s really nothing wrong with wanting to enhance your eyes with a little or even a lot of makeup. But again, given how the topic at hand is all about eye health, you should always remember the dos and don’ts of using eye makeup. See that mascara that you’ve had for about a year now? It would be a really good idea to just chuck it in the trash and just buy a new one. Are you fond of using eyeliners? Well, you better make sure that the liner you’re using does not contain dangerous levels of lead. Should you lend cosmetics to your BFF? That depends on whether you want her bacteria to contaminate your eye makeup. What about those tools you use to apply primer, eye shadow, pigments, and glitters? It goes without saying that you should always sterilize these applicators and never forget to invest on a good eye makeup remover to avoid irritating your peepers.
