The need to look good is very much a mainstay of the modern world fuelled in part by the media’s obsession with perfect bodies. In a world of lipo-suction and gastric bands there are still people who decide to lose weight and get in shape by exercising. The gastric band is perhaps a more commendable method of losing weight compared with liposuction but these methods of losing weight should only be considered if an individual’s health is in danger. Liposuction just seems like such an easy way to lose weight; it doesn’t teach anyone about the value of healthy living. So what’s to stop them from putting the weight back on?
Let’s be blunt, Ophthalmological (I hope I’ve spelt that right!) is a bit of a mouthful, but if like me you can’t spell (or say) it, you can blame the Greek for that! The word comes from the Greek “ophthalmos”, meaning (shock, horror) eye, and “logos”, meaning thought. Together, the term literally means “the science of eyes”. (Wikipedia)
The term (please don’t make me type it again), should be found on all products that are used around the eye area, so thing like:
- Eye Creams
- Eye Gels
- Eye Drops
should all be Ophthalmologically Tested, which means that they have been certified safe to use around the delicate area around the eye.
My Bourjois eyeliners are actually the first products that I’ve noticed this on, which makes me wonder how many beauty products really are tested effectively as safe, because I don’t know about you guys, but I always worry about the health of my eyes, especially since mine are so sensitive.
