Did you know that 80 per cent of people suffer from digital eye strain? After a day spent staring at a screen, it’s no wonder our eyes feel overworked and exhausted. The human eye isn’t used to handling the artificial blue light and the effects are starting to show. Our eyes store up the energy absorbed from screens and release it at night, resulting in oxidative damage to the delicate eye tissue. Day after day, our eyesight becomes damaged. Early signs of eye damage include dryness and irritation; take care of your eyes and you won’t regret it.
For dry eyes
Peep Club was created around a mission to make eye care more accessible, effective and natural; the idea that it should be a treat, not just a treatment. The All-You-Need Dry Eye Kit does exactly what it says on the tin. Comprising a heated eye wand, an eye balm and eye spray, this 3-step process provides instant relief every day. Cleanse and nourish with the Soothing Coconut Eye Balm by applying a ½ pea sixed amount to the eye area; less is more here. Next up, treat the underlying cause of dry eyes with the Heated Eye Wand. This innovative tool warms up to 45 degrees celsius in under a minute and retains that optimal temperature for as long as you need. The combination of heat and massage works to stimulate and unlock the tiny glans responsible for keeping eyes hydrated. Finally, relieve symptoms as and when required with a quick spritz of the Instant Relief Eye Spray, formulated with two active ingredients of colourless Sea Buckthorn Oil and Sodium Hyaluronate.
