How to Simplify Your Cleansing Routine for Dry Eye

How To Improve Dry Eyes Naturally?

How can simplifying your cleansing routine help with dry eye?

You may want to consider using a different cleanser for your lids and also you have a question about warm compresses because you feel like it makes your eyes drier.

I actually completely agree that you should switch up what you’re using for your eyelid cleanser. I’m guessing you are using a traditional lid scrub, maybe an Ocusoft scrub, or something like that. Those do have Surfactants in them and, in some people, can make things worse. I would switch to a Hypochlorous acid cleanser. It’s very gentle, organic, and natural. Your body makes it naturally so it should not irritate your eyes. Some people may still be sensitive to it,  but I think it is still worth to try to switch, or at least discontinue the one that you are using. We talked a little bit about our Hypochlorous acid earlier on the live show.

I would challenge you to simplify your cleansing routine. Just using our soap with our cleanser, try that. It’s very simple and it’s very effective. Dr. Jenna battles acne quite a bit on her face and I saw her everyday battling it with 50 different chemicals. Every week there was just something different. So, I finally had enough of it and I just said,  “You to need to stop, give up all these chemicals and simplify your routine!” Now she uses one product along with the spray and that’s it. That’s literally all she does and her acne cleared up. So simplicity is key. Your body does not want a hundred million chemicals on it. Our soap has five ingredients, our spray has three. We do that on purpose. It’s because we purposely practice what we preach. We like simplicity. We like to put in our body and on our body pure products.

I would say if the warm compresses are really bothering your eyes, then discontinue it. I don’t know what warm compress you are using, but maybe you are having a reaction. I know that our Warm Compress Mask contains flax seed and lavender which I’m sure some people might have a reaction to that. So, look at the warm compress that you are using and what it contains because that could really be causing that redness of your eyelids. Also, as a side note, with the way your eyelids look today, you would actually benefit from a cool compress because your eyelids are so inflamed. Whatever mask you have should be able to go in the freezer as well and it should be okay to use.

One Love,

I have LASIK dry eyes. I also have ptosis and my eyelids have partially covered my pupils for many years. A few weeks ago, I started using your products and cleansing routine, Doctors Zigler. I’ve been using your tea tree soap on my face, morning and night. I follow with your lid cleanser. I also use your warmed compress on my eyes for twenty minutes every evening, followed by expelling oils and using your lid cleanser. I have noticed an amazing difference in my eyes. My upper eyelids have miraculously raised up above my pupils and I look so wide eyed that I am amazed every time I look in the mirror. My eyelids are no longer red. My eyeballs are whiter. My vision has brightened and cleared. I feel like I’m seeing a whole new world. I still must use artificial tears throughout the day and night, but I am doing so much better because of your wonderful products. Thank you for all of the help you have provided to me. I’ve been searching since my LASIK surgery, which took place on 9-15-1999. I am so glad I found your eyelove community and your products.
