NOW Grooming: Tips For Winter Dry Eyes

Winter dry eyes got you down? Let's drop some moisture on that irritating subject.

You would think with all that moisture flying around out there that you wouldn’t have any issues with dry anything, but nooo, that’s not how it works, is it? Between drying indoor heat and arid cold temperatures, the atmosphere is literally sucking moisture right out of your life, which can equate to parched, irritated peepers.

Turn around, bright eyes. Everything is not really falling apart. Check out these helpful items that will help you combat winter dry eye:

Eye drops are essential to handling that dry eye situation. Keep a bottle of Visine Tears Long Lasting Dry Eye Relief Lubricant Eye Drops ($9.99) everywhere and apply liberally on a regular basis.

Also keep Visine Total Eye Soothing Eye Wipes ($5.99) in your bathroom. Not only will they keep the eye area nice and moist, but they’ll remove stubborn foreign objects (including waterproof cosmetics, you crazy kid) and are totally safe for contact lens wearers.

Speaking of contact lenses, check out my favorites, 1-Day ACUVUE TruEye Contact Lenses (prices vary). They give me super hawkeye vision that allows me to read, work, travel and scope out the hottest things in the room in comfort. Talk to your eye doctor and also check out 1-Day ACUVUE Moist Contact Lenses for those with SUPER dry eye issues.

You will also need to invest in a serious eye cream right now. You’ll want to go with a cream that hydrates but isn’t too heavy (tip: if it’s still sitting on your face in the shower the next morning, it’s too heavy.) Check out a gorgeous vanity gold standard like La Prairie Cellular Eye Contour Cream ($125), which works to correct dryness and hydrate from the deepest layers of your skin to prevent future dryness. It’s like a spa vacation in your bathroom.
