We need to take more care of our eyes
National Eye Health Week runs until Sunday 22nd September. It encourages us all to take more care of our eyes and as one of the official sponsors, one of our brands NATorigin are getting behind these important health messages. As an Allergy UK approved brand for sensitive eyes, dry eyes, blepharitis and contact lens wearers, NATorigin was keen to get involved.
Most of us keep our eye cosmetics such as mascara for far too long. The make-up artists I have asked suggest replacing them every 3 months but some prefer 2 months after opening. This is to reduce the risk of eye infections or contamination of the product itself. Pencil eye liners should be sharpened regularly to expose fresh product, particularly if you apply them to the waterline and replaced if the lid keeps falling off. Cleaning any applicators and brushes that you use regularly is also important.
Your local opticians may be backing this campaign, so pop in and see what they are up to. Spread the word, follow our general tips below and you could help to save someone's sight.
