Revitalize Tired Computer Strained Eyes!

We all spend more time than we'd like to admit staring at a screen each day. Try SimilasanUSA Computer Eye Relief & other products for homeopathic & natural remedies. Computer Eye Relief helps your eyes feel refreshed by stimulating the body’s natural ability to relieve the symptoms of eye fatigue.

5 Quick Tips for Computer Strained Eyes

  • Sit straight at your workstation and rub your palms against each other till you feel them warm. The warmth of your palms helps soothe and relax tired eyes. Then, lightly cup your eyes with your palms and relax for 60 seconds. Count the seconds in your mind. Repeat this exercise two to three times whenever your eyes feel tired, or as often as you want. While palming, you can either rest your elbows on your desk or keep away from the desk and cup your eyes. Both ways are fine.
Take Water Breaks:
  • During breaks, splash water on your face while closing your eyes. This has an overall relaxing effect and helps you feel refreshed. Also, drinking plenty of water helps reduce puffiness. When a person is dehydrated, especially in an air-conditioned office, the body starts storing water as a defence mechanism. This adds to puffiness around the eyes.
Eye Relief Exercises:
  • While working for long hours, look at distant objects either in your office or outside. Looking at a distant object and then returning to your task helps your eyes focus better. Try taking such visual breaks for about five to 10 minutes every hour.
  • A small and easy exercise: First, blink your eyes several times. While you keep your eyes closed, roll your eyeballs both clockwise and anticlockwise and take a deep breath. Gradually open your eyes while releasing your breath. This exercise lasts for a minute and you can repeat it three times before getting back to work. It serves as a good workout for the eyes. 
Tea Bag De-Puffer 
  • Keep two used tea bags in the refrigerator before you leave for work. Once you are him, place the tea bags on your eyes for a few minutes as you relax. This not only soothes tired eyes, but also reduces puffiness.
Use Rewetting Drops
  • The use of re-wetting drops gives relief to your eyes. Dr Harish S Belvi, a practicing ophthalmologist based in Mubai, suggests the use of preservative free re-wetting eye drops because they have a similar composition to that of natural tears. "Eye drops with preservatives are toxic to the eyes in the long run. You can use re-wetting eye drops as and when required, but preferably span it to a minimum of four to six times a day.

Catch the Bug! And Reuse!!

Reusable Produce Bags: 
A Small Change, 
A Big Difference! 

3B Bags is a small company started by women, who just like women everywhere, shop for groceries.We believe each person can begin a global environmentally sustainable change one bag at a time. When shopping for produce, a plastic produce bag used once certainly seems like a waste. We love to reuse and dislike unnecessary waste so we developed 3B Reusable Produce Bags, a reusable set of mesh bags with a drawstring.    

As an environmentally conscious customer you'll love the idea of reusable shopping bags & will love 3B Bags because they are:
Virtually Weightless
Machine Washable
Made of See Through Mesh
Easy to Store for Future Use 
Able to hold up to 22 lbs
 Our 3B Bags Reusable Produce Bag Pack includes 3 individual bags: Two of the bags measure 11 X 14 inches and the over-sized bag measures 14.5 X 18.5 inches to hold larger produce. Product testing shows that our 100% polyester bags meet requirements and have no detectable levels of lead, phthlates, BPA or other toxins.
Why should something we use for for ten minutes stay in our landfills for hundreds of years? Reusable Produce Bags are environmentally friendly, small, affordable and have so many uses! They are NOT only for grocery shopping. Use them to keep extra tennis balls, clean fine washables, separate yarn colors, or keep fruit flies off of your fruit. Using three of our bags just once a week can save as many as 150 plastic bags per year!

"I'm so excited to get these produce bags! I always bring my own bags when grocery shopping but end up tearing the plastic bags off the roll when buying fruits and vegetables. Buying 3B Bags will help me reduce the dreaded plastic pile up in my home as well as help reduce environmental waste!"

Anti-Aging, Wrinkle Reducing Booster!!

Yesterday, The Dr Oz Show, talked about new research on natural oral supplements that support anti-aging and encourage healthy skin and hair.

He spoke about the importance of Collagen and how it keeps skin elastic and smooth. The loss of collagen happens naturally as we age and that is why wrinkles begin to form. As discussed on his show, the recommended dosage is 2,000mg taken each morning of "hydrolyzed" collagen, type 1 and 3, will help to reduce wrinkles and restore smooth skin. Look for Hydrolyzed Collagen on the label of ingredients.

Please note that Dr. Oz does not endorsed specific brands. If you would like to purchase the exact same product that was shown on his show, you can purchase it here: ->

NeoCell Super Collagen Plus C Type 1 and 3

Pure and Natural
Ligaments and Tendons
Total Body Health
Radiant Skin
Thicker Hair
Stronger Nails
Healthier Joints

Collagen is a complex structural protein that maintains strength and flexibility throughout the body. Super Collagen+C is made up of the collagen peptides Type 1and3 which support collagen in skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones. Super Collagen+C is enzymatically hydrolyzed, providing an amino acid ratio with a low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability acid ratio with a low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability and utilization by the body. When Super collagen is taken internally, the body receives the raw materials it needs to supplement the collagen found in all of these areas and may act as a messenger to trigger the synthesis of new collagen fibers. Vitamin C is added to provide optimum supplementation of your dietary collagen needs.
