Look in the mirror at your eyes. Are they bright and clear, or do they look old and tired? If you suffer from eye fatigue, tired eyes, or computer vision syndrome (CVS), hydrotherapy (aka water therapy) is a natural and very soothing method of healing eye discomfort, while helping to restore eye health.Hydrotherapy will rejuvenate and nourish your eyes, making the white’s whiter, and your eyes brighter, clearer and totally refreshed.
Alternate Back and Forth – Hydrotherapy treatments are performed by holding hot and cold water compresses against the eyes for 30-60 seconds each, repeating 3-4 times. The hot application expands the blood vessels in the eyes, while the cold restricts the blood vessels. Start with the hot compress and end with the cold. After your hydrotherapy session, your eyes will look and feel like new! NOTE: Make sure the compress is not too hot, as to burn your skin!
For Dark Circles and Puffy Under Eye Bags – Green, black, or chamomile tea is a natural solution for helping minimize dark circles and puffy eyes. These teas contain tannin’s, a natural astringent that constricts blood vessels, reduces inflammation, and swelling. Prepare two bags of tea by steeping them in boiling water, wringing them out, and chilling them in the refrigerator or freezer. Place the chilled tea bag over your (closed) eyes for 10-15 minutes, turning them over half way through.
For Good Eye Health – Proper nutrition is vital for keeping your eyes healthy, youthful, and functioning at optimal level. Two important nutrients (carotenoids) that may help lower the risk of vision impairments and age-related chronic eye conditions like cataracts and macular degeneration are leutine (LOO teen) and zeaxanthin (zee ah ZAN thin). Nutrition For the Eyes – For healthy eyes, eat foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants like vitamins A, C, and E and minerals, zinc and selenium.
