Go on, give your eyes the boost they deserve!

Here we are, in the middle of another lockdown, in mid-winter and it's tough on our eyes.

Why? Because lockdown means more time each day spent in front of a PC or mobile screen than ever before and that dries our eyes out.

Why? Because our central heating is on for longer because of the time of year and that dries our eyes out.

My eyelash roots and eyelid rims are less crusty than they have been for 10 years

Blephasteam Blephasteam review eyelid cleansing Kai moisture chamber glasses

It's now week two of trying out my Blephasteam and I'm starting to get into a comfortable routine for using it that works for me.

A 10-minute session in the morning sets me up for the day because my eyes then feel refreshed and lubricated and that makes me feel more positive and energetic.

I've found that if I wear my moisture chamber glasses directly afterwards, my eyes feel less dry and sore for 4 to 5 hours because the glasses conserve my tears.
