Staying hydrated — And why it’s important for your eyes

You know when you’re dehydrated. No matter what you do and how many litres of water you drink, you just can’t seem to take enough fluid in. This is weird when you think that dehydration is when more water leaves the body than enters the body. The thing is, though, whereas water can only enter the body through one inlet in your face, it can leave the body in many, many, many different ways. So, staying hydrated is a little more complicated… Read more

Practical Tips For Naturally Brighter & Whiter Eyes


They’re the first thing you notice about someone when you meet them, and the last thing you remember when you walk away. It doesn’t matter if the person was six foot or four, was bald or had a thick head of hair, was in their early twenties or late eighties; if their eyes were clear and shining, they were a complete vision of ageless beauty. When was the last time, though, other than when watching a movie, you saw someone and just… Read more

Summer is Here: How To Look After Your Eyes

Whether your plan is to sip pina coladas on the beach in Cancun or sunbathe with the cat in the back garden, you always want to look you’re best during the summer months.

Staring at Facebook for 4 hours a day might be bad for you

Facebook has taken a bit of a bashing recently. Several studies have come out showing the damaging effects it can have on everything from relationships and love life to stress and self-esteem. Even the people who helped build the thing are coming out and declaring it’s “ripping society apart” thanks to its purposely designed “feedback loops”. For a site that calls itself a ‘social network’ and that brought us ‘Friend’s Day’, the friendly Poke, and the ability to find long-lost classmates from our… Read more

Choosing sunglasses that really do protect your eyes

Factor 50 suntan lotion, check. Towels, check. Hats, SPF lip balm, 100 percent UV protected clothing and parasol, check, check, check. Oh, and plenty of water, hydration salts, a first aid kit, fruit, snacks, and last but not least, a pair of high-quality sunglasses. We associate all these things with a holiday abroad and a long, sizzling day at the beach. But really, many of them — okay, maybe not the parasol —  should make an appearance on even cloudy days in London.… Read more

How to avoid eye strain

Like migraines, weak glutes, and depression, eye strain seems like just another part of modern day life we have to accept. I can’t remember a time when I didn’t end the work day by rubbing my eyes and blinking like a maniac. There was, however, a time when it was much worse — when I wore contact lenses. My eyes would be instantly as dry as Ghandi’s flipflops if I simply made a sandwich or opened a window, never mind use a… Read more

London’s mayor committed to reduce pollution, what that means for your eyesight

Think of cities with a serious pollution problem and you think of Delhi or Beijing — places known for their heavy smog clouds that sweep over and blanket whole neighbourhoods for days, weeks, or months on end. Somewhere that doesn’t immediately come to mind, however, with all its talk of protecting the environment and supporting green energy, is London. Yet surprisingly enough — at least for those that don’t live in the capital — last year air pollution in London peaked at… Read more

5 Natural beauty tips for vibrant and healthy eyes

In 2017, a ton of new health and beauty trends came and went. Some of which included smudged lipstick to achieve the ‘just-kissed’ look, jade rollers to ‘rejuvenate’ your face and neck, and bleached eyebrows to, well, make you look super creepy. Sometimes the new fads stick, but most the time they don’t. The fact is, the best of them have already been around for years, even millennia. Smoky and cat eyes were pretty much invented by Cleopatra. The daily lemon water… Read more

Quick guide: Laser Eye Surgery and Alcohol

Pregnancy, surgery, breastfeeding, taking antibiotics, having dinner with the parents-in-law — all times in our life when we’re advised to stay away from the liquor cabinet. And also, uncoincidentally, the times in our lives when we could most do with a nice drink or two. Nine months with another person growing inside of you without even a tipple of wine? A week with an unbearable ear infection and no soothing nightcaps? A whole night sober with my mother-in-law? Yeah right. We all know… Read more

A guide to good eye health

As a general rule, we tend to take best care of the parts of the body we can see. We wash our hair religiously, brush our teeth without compromise, bathe our skin in moisturiser, relax our muscles when they are sore. Of course, this makes a lot of sense; it’s difficult to maintain something that’s hidden behind layers and layers of tissue (or clothes). Vital organs like our livers and intestines don’t make an appearance when we look at ourselves in the mirror… Read more
