I am loving the gorgeous autumn colors, but this dry indoor heat is causing me all sorts of problems. I am a contact lens wearer, and my eyes get horribly dry when the heat is turned on. Plus all that dry heat changes my skin and I end up with breakouts. I’ve always thought having wrinkles AND blemishes was the definition of a little slice of hell.
I’ve been counting on two things that were sent to the BIZ to help me through this transition into the cold weather outside and the dry heat inside: Acuvue Oasys Contact Lenses and Neova Breakout Control Swabs ($26).
Dry, itchy eyes make me completely miserable. I am always surprised when cold weather rolls around and I suddenly find myself reaching for eye drops every few hours just keep my eyes feeling somewhat comfortable. What has helped me tremendously is switching my contact lenses to ACUVUE® OASYS® Brand Contact Lenses (www.acuvue.com). The HYDRACLEAR® technology embeds a moisture-rich wetting agent into the contact lens. That means the lens is super hydrated, and a moisture-rich lens keeps my eyes moist and comfortable, even with drying indoor heat.
Talk about convenient…the Neova Breakout Control Swabs are really awesome for treating blemishes. Using fingers to apply blemish medication is not a good thing – oils from fingertips can actually transmit more bacteria and exacerbate the problem. These cotton swabs are filled with 2% salicylic acid that clears out pores and neutralizes bacteria, plus allantoin and aloe to soften and calm skin. Break the swab at the red line and the blemish-fighting solution saturates the cotton swab tip on the other end. Just dab the saturated swab on your blemish and it’s gone before you know it.
If you have issues with dry indoor heat, I highly recommend Acuvue Oasys Contact Lenses to keep your eyes moist and comfy, and Neova Breakout Control Swabs to get rid of pesky blemishes. Pick them up and enjoy the change of seasons in total comfort! – Lisa
