Eyes, The Window IntoThe Soul

 

The eyes have been said to be “the window into your soul”, but are you taking care of those beautiful lens?

The first thing I usually notice about a person is their eyes. I don’t know why, but I’ve always been drawn to peoples eyes. How many of you notice the same thing? Maybe there’s something to that “window into your soul” theory.

There seems to always be a lot of information on taking care of our bodies, stay in shape, eat the right foods, and so on. How many times do we actually see anything specifically about eyes?

It’s not just about applying eye cream to nourish and hydrate, which is important, however it’s beneficial to know what nutrients are the best for your eyes. Take a look here and read about all the incredible foods that are key for optimal eye health.

After nourishing your eyes by eating the right foods, it’s also good to know that keeping your eyes protected from UV rays is extremely important. Everyone always thinks the only thing you need to protect from the sun is your skin. While that is partially true, our eyes are susceptible to ultra violet rays which can cause serious eye problems such as cataracts, macular degeneration, skin cancer, pterygium and corneal sunburn. Wearing UV protective sunglasses and a hat when you’re out in the sun is crucial. Remember, this applies to winter as well as summer. The sun is out 365 days a year! Read more about these particular eye problems and see if you are in compliance.

Your eyes are the only pair you’re going to have so protect and eat the right foods to keep them in perfect condition.

In the mean time, check out Osmosis’ Refresh and Refresh PM to keep the skin around the eyes healthy and hydrated. These eye creams are light weight and won’t clog pores. Apply around the orbital bone twice a day. Your eyes will be “refreshed” morning and night!
