Why DO I Have Blurred and Cloudy Vision?

A cataract is a condition in which the clear lens of the eyes becomes cloudy, preventing sufficient light rays from entering the eyes and impairing vision. Age is the most common reason for developing cataracts. The development of cataract is also associated with a positive family history (if a family or relative has cataract before), an unhealthy lifestyle (such as smoking and heavy alcohol intake) and prolonged exposure to sunlight or radiation. Cataracts can cause eyes to be easily irritated, and can lead to decrease in visual acuity, with blurry and double vision.

Exercise improves blood circulation in the eyes

Our eyes need good blood circulation and oxygen intake, and both are stimulated by regular exercise. Regular exercise also helps keep our weight in the normal range, which reduces the risk of having chronic diseases. Also, consider a supplement that includes  eye-friendly nutrients such as Lutein, Zeaxanthin, DHA omega 3, bilberry extract for extra eye nourishment and protection.

Why Should You Use Dental Floss?

To have good oral health, it is not enough to brush your teeth twice a day, you need to floss at least once a day too. By flossing daily, plaque is removed from the areas between your teeth where your toothbrush cannot reach. This is important because plaque that is not removed by brushing and flossing can eventually harden into tartar. In addition, people who are wearing braces or have big interdental gaps can use a special interdental toothbrush for a more effective cleansing effect.

Gargle For 30 Seconds

When using a mouthwash, do you gargle for a few quick seconds before spitting? Most mouthwashes work best when in oral contact for 30 seconds per use. However, some mouthwash may cause burning sensation and is not suitable to be use for that long. Hence, it is wise to use a mouthwash that is free of alcohol and fluoride to avoid burning sensation and discoloration of enamel that can lead to damaged teeth after prolonged use.

Shampoo Your Hair The Right Way!

Here are some steps to shampoo your hair the right way: Gently brush your hair to improve blood circulation in your scalp and avoid entangled hair. Next, rinse hair with warm water to remove the dirt in your hair, but do not apply the shampoo directly onto scalp. Instead, lather the shampoo into foam by using your palms before applying the foamy mixture onto your scalp. Massage your scalp gently with your fingers, not nails then spend a longer time rinsing to ensure that no shampoo residue remains. Lastly, use a towel to remove excess water in your hair and let your hair dry with cool air.
