Summer time is finally here!!

Whether you get 3 months or 3 days' worth of sunshine the summer months are here to stay and what better time is there to get outside?! Picnics, summer fairs and festivals are just the tip of your whippy ice cream but while it's okay to get out there and enjoy yourself you must remember to take care of your eyes. Hardly the first thing you think of ... but happy eyes mean a happy summer!
 
When your diary is chock a block with parties and outdoor fun, the last thing you want are dry, irritated eyes which are causing you more pain than seeing an empty wine cooler.

Eye Spray
 
The fastest and most convenient way for immediate relief of eye irritation and dryness is an eye spray. The Dry Eye Spray Mist from Superdrug is an affordable product you can pick up which delivers super fast results and a bit of fun. Designed to applied to closed eyelids, you simply point and spray about 10 cm away from your eyes. The fun part being that although you know the spray is coming you may still flinch, like I did. Every time!
 
Compact in size, this product is perfect to carry with you at all times for when hay fever hits or your eyes need some refreshment.

Eye Drops
 
Great for the not so faint hearted ... eye drops are another fast and effective way of maintaining healthy eyes. Long summer nights and big parties you intend to remember, or not, take their toll on your eyes and any photos may leave you looking like a character out of The Walking Dead.
 
Eye drops like the Brightening Eye Drops from the Superdrug range can make you look a lot more alive when it matters. Reducing redness and making your eyes look brighter, the eye drops work quickly to ensure you're photo ready at any time.
 
I couldn't bring myself to use these drops solo, but another pair of hands was more than welcome and I have to say I loved the result after use! Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl had better watch out because this blue eyed girl had a right pair of sparklers after using these drops!

Eye Wash
 
A bit more tedious but really worth while is using an eye wash. Everyday use, even out of the summer months, can damage your eyes and make them feel tired. Extensive use of computers, exposure to cigarette smoke and just being plain tired can all have negative effects on your eyes. Rubbing your eyes is not something you want to be doing while you should be enjoying open air concerts so rinsing out your eyes beforehand makes a huge difference.
 
My go to eye wash is the Eye Wash & Eye Bath Solution from the Superdrug range. Why? Because not only is it only £2.99, but it's made with plant extracts and is completely cruelty free. It's a win win product for me. I have to say that if you've never used an eye wash before it may be a bit uncomfortable the first time you use the product. Not because it hurts ... it really doesn't ( at all! ) .... but because when tipping the solution to your eye you need to have your eye open. Hence why it may be a little tricky, since all of your instincts will tell you to close your eye when the liquid hits. Once you have the liquid by your eye you simply blink a few times so it coats your eyeball and then repeat on the other eye.
 
Not as portable as the eye spray, the eye wash will still be ideal for taking away on trips and holidays but is better used when you have a sink or private bathroom to use.
