Eye fatigue is a common ailment and one that we often ignore. But rubbing your eyes strains this already-delicate skin area. So keeping eye fatigue under control is an essential act of skincare. Before you begin to see double and have trouble focusing, take a time out. Some tips: (1) Take a break at the top of each hour. (2) A midday nap is also a perfect way to reset the mind and refresh you for the afternoon. (3) If your eyes are already at the burning stage, place a warm, wet washcloth on your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes.
