-This post contains sponsored content - Does your job or downtime entail staring at a computer screen for longer than you care to admit? Have you noticed that recently that your eyes are often tired, irritated and that your rubbed off more mascara than Boots stock? Well you are not alone, on average us Brits spend up to six hours a day (that's a quarter of our day) glaring at a screen and this has been proven to one of the major factors of dry, itchy eyes.
Essentially when we stare at a computer screen we don't blink nearly as often as we would in other circumstances which equates to drier than average eyes; classic dry eye symptoms are when you don't produce enough tears or that the tears you do produce, don't evaporate quick enough leading to irritation. The redness and on occasion swollen and tender eyes is most likely what you will notice but your optician will point out the other factors - just last week I had an eye exam which included popping in tinted eye drops to monitor how quickly my tears evaporated. As someone who's livelihood involves glaring at a laptop screen, you can all but guess my results are not something to brag about. Luckily there is help, a quick and easy way to lubricate your eyes without the need for uncomfortable drops - Optrex ActiMist 2in1 Eye Spray for Dry and Irritated Eyes.
I've spoken many times about the Optrex mists - come allergy season you will not see me as much as cross over my front door without a bottle or two, there are many variants but for those with dried out eyes there is no better solution than Optrex ActiMist 2in1 Eye Spray for Dry and Irritated Eyes. For instant and continued relief, all you have to do is mist over closed eyes - Optrex ActiMist 2in1 Eye Spray for Dry and Irritated Eyes will then repair the eye's natural protective moisture barrier, providing relief both instantaneously and for up to four hours after use. Over time and with continued use, Optrex ActiMist 2in1 Eye Spray for Dry and Irritated Eyes can significantly improve the lipid layer and tear film stability - i.e you'll produce better quality tears, again something your optician will notice more than you will but great news for general eye health.
What I personally enjoy most about Oprtex ActiMist 2in1 Eye Spray for Dry and Irritated Eyes is that you can apply it over make-up, free from worry of it smudging, smearing or encouraging make-up to run. It cools, calms, refreshes, and moisturises in one quick step and can fit into the smallest of pockets - what more could you ask.
If all of the above sounds familiar, I urge you to head over to Optrex's Facebook and take the Dare to Stare Optrex Blink Challenge - this fun but educational video can help determine if you have dry eyes and if you too, would benefit from use of Optrex ActiMist 2in1 Eye Spray for Dry and Irritated Eyes.
