There will be late nights aplenty over the coming days. If you want your eyes to look bright and sparkling, follow some easy tips, like having a good night’s sleep, to help you.

A new study of 2,000 British people, commissioned by Murine eye drops, reveals that nearly two-thirds of people say that their eyes make them feel bad when they are tired. Even then, only one quarter have used eye drops in the past 12 months to soothe them.

Optometrist and spokesperson for Murine eye drops, Lara Hefson, gives out her top five tips for surviving the party season with sparkling eyes:

– Cut down on salty food and alcohol, and drink plenty of water. Keeping your body hydrated is vital.

– Essential oils are a vital part of your diet, and are crucial for tear production. Make sure you have enough eggs and oily fish in your diet, or consider taking a flaxseed oil supplement.

– Placing a hot compress over closed eyes daily helps stimulate tear production and reduces the symptoms of dry eye.

A good night’s sleep helps in reducing the desire for sweet and salty foods, intake of sugar and caloric content, says a study.

It is known that sleeping less than seven hours is associated with an increased cardio-metabolic risk — heart disease risk and metabolic disorders — but increasing the sleep duration can help reduce it, said lead author Rob Henst, Associate Professor at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.

In the study, published in the Journal of Sleep Research, researchers found that sleep extension was associated with improved measures of insulin sensitivity and reductions in overall appetite, desire for sweet and salty foods, intake of daily free sugar, and percentage of daily caloric intake from protein.

“It is now apparent that poor sleep quality may be an equally important risk factor for cardio-metabolic diseases,” said Dale Rae from the varsity.
