New on the eye treatments I have been testing....I read that hot compress helps to relieve dry eyes: theory is that the tiny sebum glands around the eye can become blocked by dry skin in the winter and because of irritation from eye make up or blepheritis (a common eye condition) So...using a hot compress warms the skin and allows the natural oils to flow from the sebum glands, thereby soothing and moisturising the lashes and sensitive eye area naturally. I have been using this method for a couple of weeks and can report that it works brilliantly! Its necessary to use water as hot as you can comfortably bear and initially to repeat three times a day...I've cut down to twice a day now and my eyes are pretty much back to normal.
Hope this is of use to anyone suffering from dry eyes this winter **
