Eat Yourself to a Younger You!
5 Steps to Ageless Eyes!
We’ve all heard the traditional proverb “the eyes are the windows to the soul”. Our eyes reveal incredible amounts of information from our health to our inner feelings.
The eyeballs are the largest organs that take in oxygen to the brain.
Imagine for a moment how you express yourself when you feel stressed out, uptight, angry or frustrated?
We squeeze our faces and squint our eyes thus reducing the amount of oxygen being taken in, which of course affects the condition of both eyes and vision.
Like it or not, our eyes also reveal the truth about one’s age. The area surrounding our eyes tend to be thinner than other areas on the face.
Our peeps get a daily workout from crying, smiling, focusing and squinting making the area more prone to dryness and fine lines.
At one time or another, you’ve may have experienced some eye trouble whether it was itchy, watery eyes, tired, bloodshot eyes or dryness.
These eye disturbances can signal an imbalance in the body such as dark circles indicating allergies, or watery eyes a symptom of a cold or blurry vision due to blood sugar imbalances.
Like all other parts of the body, the eyes need to be nourished properly with a well-balanced diet with plenty of fresh produce in order to keep eyes looking young and healthy.
Follow these 5 steps and keep your eyes looking bright, youthful and maybe even promote stronger vision:
- Eat your veggies - rich in powerful antioxidants that protect against free radical damage and provide anti-aging protection; include bright orange and yellow fruits and veggies like yams, carrots and mangos

2. Moisturize - constant blinking, squinting, smiling and other facial expressions promote dryness resulting in fine lines;
3. Eye exercises - facial exercises to decrease crow’s feet, reduce eye bags, lift up the corners of the eyes, firm, strengthen and relax the muscles around the eyes
4. Get sufficient sleep - we all know how our eyes look when we don’t get proper rest, tired, stressed and overworked and fatigue promotes eyestrain
5. Wear UV protective sunglasses - shield your eyes from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays protecting them from squinting which leads to dryness and fine lines
Brighten, tone and tighten eyes and skin surrounding the area as beauty really is in the eye of the beholder!
