Solving eye health concerns can be complicated and often doesn’t have a simple answer, requiring a jigsaw of products or methods that only form a solution when fitted together.
For dry eyes that might mean some of the latest over the counter eye drops, gels, night-time ointments or even a sleep mask.
For blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) it could be a preservative free lid care wipe, heat mask or tea-tree oil cleansing solution.
As well as a good diet, nutritional supplements can have a role to play in conditions much as macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and dry eyes. Key ingredients you can find include: lutein, zeaxanthin; omega 3 oils (DHA, EPA and ALA), co-enzyme Q10, bilberry, ginkgo biloba & N-acetyl cysteine (NAC).
If you have sensitive eyes or skin then our multi-award winning makeup and skincare will be a valuable find.
