Smoking and your eyesight

As a nation, we’re well aware of the risks associated with smoking. From respiratory and cardiovascular diseases to cancers and the accelerated ageing of your skin. Less is known, however, about the many ways that smoking is damaging to one of our most precious organs: the eyes. There are the obvious effects, like the discomfort, irritation, and dryness after spending a night in a smoke-filled club. But the way that tobacco smoke – a toxic mix of more than 7,000 chemicals and compounds – enters your blood… Read more

A quick eye health check

Sight is one of the senses we use the most. And yet, it’s also one of the senses that gets the most overlooked (no pun intended) when it comes care. This isn’t surprising. When they are working perfectly well, we never notice our eyes. They humbly toil away in the background with their over two million working parts, allowing us to see the world in all its glory as well as supporting all of our other senses. For example, the brain can evaluate the… Read more

Eye-make up and eyecare

Today make-up products like mascara, blusher, foundation, lipstick and eyeliner are a daily necessity for many women around the world. And yet, although they’re carefully designed to make you look good, it’s rare they’re designed to be good for your skin and your general health. Many people know unhealthy makeup habits often cause problems like acne, oily skin, dryness, and ageing. But there are also other, sometimes less noticeable, negative effects that can come from daily makeup use. Here we’re going to… Read more

How the seasons affect your eyes

The mere passing of time brings about many changes in the weather and our environment. If you live somewhere in the Earth’s middle latitudes, you’ll know these changes are categorised into the four seasons — spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Traditionally, many people would orientate their whole lives around the four seasons. Today, not so much as more of us live in cities and work in offices. But nevertheless, we still have to take into account their numerous effects on our bodies… Read more

Look after your eyes this winter

The winter weather can take its toll on many parts of the body. And with the climate changing and ever more extreme weather coming our way, this is only going to become truer. For instance, your mood can dip, thanks to the shorter days and the lack of Vitamin D. You burn more calories from doing less. And if it’s really cold, your fingers may even “shrink” as your blood vessels constrict and more blood gets sent away from your extremities and… Read more

Fireworks & bonfires: Do take care

Fireworks are delightful inventions that bring fun and enjoyment to everyone (except maybe dogs and old people). But they’re also small dangerous missiles packed with gunpowder that fire ‘payloads’ at hundreds of miles an hour into the sky to explode in a (hopefully) controlled and artistic way. Without sounding like too much of a party pooper, it’s the same story for bonfires. Despite the fact that for millennia they’ve kept us warm and provided us with a focal point for getting together,… Read more

5 Natural Beauty Tips for Vibrant and Healthy Eyes

We have witnessed a ton of health and beauty trends over the past few years, from Korean skincare routines, ‘virtual try-ons’ in store, to unbundling the spa and salon take-homes. And like most years, many of those trends were much stranger than they were beautifying. Smudged lipstick to achieve that ‘just-kissed’ look. Jade rollers, a jade paint-roller type tool, to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck. And bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy, to name just a few. As usual,… Read more

Autumn is the season of colours

Colours are all around us. And should we stop for long enough to notice them, we realise they make our world not just look incredible, but our experiences a whole lot richer. They are, after all, what enable us to become awestruck at such scenes as a sunset, a rainbow lorikeet, a Henry Matisse or Van Gogh painting, and the bloom of the cherry blossoms in spring. But beyond mere pleasure for the senses, in the natural environment, colours have a whole other… Read more

What Can Damage Your Eyes?

Every day, we hear about things that are bad for our health. The latest one is 5G. Because it uses higher frequency waves, it requires more transmitter masts that are positioned closer to the ground. This is triggering the long-debated question about how radio waves affect us, in particular in relation to certain cancers. Although such concerns to our health come and go and are hard to back up with hard evidence, the ones that relate to the health of our eyes… Read more

How to look after your eyes on holiday this summer

Spending a few hours in the sun is one of the best shortcuts to looking and feeling younger and healthier. But without taking the proper precautions, it’ll quickly do the opposite: damaging the body and leading to macular degeneration, sunburn, skin cancer, and perhaps worst of all, wrinkles. This isn’t good news for anyone not wanting to return from their holidays looking older than when they went. Fortunately, however, to protect yourself from the sun you don’t need to rock up to… Read more
