Preserve the Beauty of the Most Beautiful Creation: Eyes

Out of the five sensory organs, the eyes can be called as the most beautiful creation of God. Without eyes, human beings would not have savoured the beauty of Mother Nature and her creations within. We often don’t realise what a single glance that lasts only a fraction of a second can capture for us. Our eyes work in collaboration with our brains to define the size, shape, colour, and texture of an object in front of us. They also let us know how close it is, whether it is still or moving and how fast its mobility is etc.

It should be noted that anything beautiful is vulnerable. Hence it is important to take care of your eyes and treat it with luxury and care.

We live in a polluted environment with a handful of stress and tension. The most common of dermatologic problems that vex people is having Dark circles or Crow feet under the eyes. Puffy eyes or ‘bags under the eyes’ also trouble some. Dark circles can be hereditary or the result of a physiological mechanism. It is due to lack of sufficient sleep in some while it is fatigue, tension or lack of haemoglobin in some others. Sinus also causes dark circles!

There are umpteen cosmetic products that come with the promise of getting rid of puffiness or dark circles. But there are so many natural remedies that can bring the brightness in and around your eyes back.

· Pamper your eyes. Relax yourself with thin cool slices of cucumber. Some people like a paste of cucumber around their eyes. Some people are positive about a blend of almond and potatoes reducing dark circles. Still others like cool tea bags.

· De-stress yourself! There is absolutely no meaning in getting tensed and ending up with physical and psychological problems. Try to chill out when you get worked up. Relax and drink lots of water.

· Yes, drinking water is always the key. It removes the impurities from the system and rids off the chances of water retention. Water retention is one of the causes for puffy eyes .

· Cotton pads soaked in rose water, milk or cold water for a cool luxury. Instead of cosmetic cleansers, milk or rosewater can act as a great natural cleanser for facial skin.

· Coconut oil works wonders. Gently massage the eye area with a thin film of coconut oil. Always use your ring finger while touching the sensitive eye area. Coconut oil is non greasy and it absorbs quickly leaving the skin moisturised and soft to the touch.

· Almond oil and honey in combination is also a good cure. Some people suggest applying tomato juice and lemon juice. But be careful as they can irritate the inner eyes.

· Castor oil is said to be good for thick eyelashes, eyebrows and hair. Apply a thin layer of castor oil on the eyelashes and eyebrows for long lashes and brows.

· Eat smart! Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Healthy eyes need carrots, berries, red tomatoes, beet root etc. Vitamin A deficiency is the main cause for night blindness. Vegetables like sweet potato, kale, carrots, spinach, avocado, broccoli, peas, asparagus and green pepper are rich in Vitamin A. Studies of the modern times show that eating leafy green vegetables may help prevent cataracts. Eat a vitamin rich diet.

· Having gooseberries is good for the eyes. Chakshushya (Amlaki) is the Sanskrit term describing gooseberry which means “strengthening the eyes”.

· Exercise regularly.

· Never rub your eyes.

· Do not use the contact lens for more than 12 hours or sleep without removing them.

· Do not expose the eye area to the Sun or look at the bright Sun. It is advisable to use goggles.

· Try to avoid using making up around the eye area. While using, do not use cheap cosmetics. And never sleep with make- up on.

· Please don’t cry.

· And last not the least, sleep tight! Eight hours of sound sleep in the night and twelve glasses of water a day would bring the twinkle back into your eyes.

And remember that eye donation is the noblest of causes. There are around 4.6 million people in India who can recover their eyesight through corneal transplantation. And only a little more than 10,000 cornea transplantations are done every year. Maybe you can impart the gift of sight too.

    Yoga has always had a solution for almost all health related problems and it is here to rescue you again. The best asana here is to fill up your mouth with water, then wash your eyes with fresh water and then spit the water out once you are done.
    Tea bags

    You might have heard of this since it is followed traditionally. Simply put plain tea bags on the eyes. This is supposed to reduce eye swelling and inflammation. Use the used tea bags, mind you, and not the fresh ones.
    Repeated blinking

    – If your eyes are feeling fatigued from looking at the computer screen for a long time, just blink your eyes 5-6 times. This will give instant but temporary relief.

    Close your eyes and do some deep breathing for about 10-15 minutes. This not only refreshes your eyes but also relieves your brain from tension and stress. It is a well known fact that meditating energizes your body and relaxes the nerves.
    Breathing exercises

    – Breathing exercises along with yoga is another simple way to get rid of any eye stress. A very popular exercise is to breathe in from one nostril and breathe out from another. One nostril should always remain closed though. You have to sit straight while doing this.

    Drink plenty of water and get eight hours of sleep every day. Vitamins and minerals are needed for health and beauty, but more is not always better.

    I’m trying to start up a small blog, primarily to hold a few short stories I’ve written and get feedback, but also for various other blog-type activities. This won’t do me any good if I can’t get my words where people can read them.. . Blogspot is preferred, but anything allowing advertising would be fine. I might want to monetise eventually, and wordpress seems to discourage that, as I understand their terms of use..

    naturally like your web site but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    I had been wondering if you ever thought of modifying the design of your web site? It is well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you can include a a bit more in the way of content so people can connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two graphics. Maybe you can space it out better?

  • February 14, 2013 at 2:15 am

    The design for your website is a little bit off in Epiphany. Nevertheless I like your site. I may need to install a normal web browser just to enjoy it.
