5 BEST TIPS to protect your eyes from the effects of Dust and Pollution
The dust and pollution level in cities is increasing every day. Every time you go out, your eyes take the brunt of it. Exposure to dust and pollution exposes them to potential infections. It is important to maintain a regular eye cleaning routine to keep your eyes safe from the infections and also keep your vision clear. Here are some tips to help you establish a regular eye-cleaning routine, including cleaning your eyelids:
1. Don’t rub your eyes
The first instinct is to rub your eyes whenever something goes in it, or if you experience itching. But your hands are full of bacteria, dust and dirt, and rubbing your eyes would transfer them to your eyes. Avoiding rubbing your eyes will prevent both irritation and infection. The next time you have eye irritation, clean them with eye cleansers such as the Oculeaf Soft Eyelid Cleanser and Oculeaf Eyelid Wipes. Oculeaf softly removes all debris and protects your eyes.
2. Wash your hands frequently
To keep your hands free of bacteria and dust, wash them from time to time, especially when you’re putting on your contact lenses or taking them off. Oculeaf Soft Eyelid Cleanser can be used before putting on your contacts, it will clean your eyelids and keep your eyes moist.
3. Wear protective eye gear
Your eyes are very delicate organs. Whenever you’re out in the sun, wear your sunglasses to protect them from UV light, as well as dirt and dust. Wear goggles when you swim, as they will protect your eyes from chlorine in the pool. And if you’re working on a DIY (do-it-yourself) project at home, do wear safety glasses. This will prevent any splinters from entering your eyes.
4. Keep surroundings clean
Dust is not only outside, but it is very much there around you, inside your home. Keep your workstation free from dust and clutter. Washing linens and towels regularly will help keep your eye free from infection.
5. Clean your eyes every day
Eyelid Wipes, like the ones from Oculeaf, can be carried around, as they are quite handy. Use them once or twice a day. They will effectively remove any dust accumulated around eyelids and eyelashes and on the skin around the eyes. They will refresh your eyes and you will feel a soothing effect.
Many of us are unaware that dirt in the eyes can lead to serious eye and vision problems. Establish a regular eye-cleaning routine to have rested, clean and stress-free eyes.
