Home Remedies for Dry Morning Eyes
Do you often wake up with dry morning eyes? Are you ready to do something about it once and for all?
In addition to consulting with your eye doctor, there are a variety of home remedies you can experiment with. Here are a few of the best:
• Drink more water: By drinking a minimum of eight glasses of water per day, you reduce the risk of waking up with dry eyes.
• Warm compresses: Do this first thing in the morning as a means of unclogging oil-producing glands. Close your eyes and gently apply pressure.
• Turn on a humidifier: This is particularly important during the dry winter months. By adding moisture to indoor air, you reduce the risk of your eyes and skin drying out.
• Cut back on screen time: Don’t watch too much television or use your phone for an extended period of time before retiring for the evening.
By experimenting with these home remedies, there’s a good chance you’ll eliminate the morning dry eyes that have been causing you so much discomfort.
