My eyes are always irritated and dry feeling. They look a little red. Is there anything natural out there that really works?

There was another thread similiar to this last week. The poster got toothpaste in their eye and said it whitened the eye and took the dryness away as well and wanted to know if anyone else had made this discovery?
Now, I didn't say I believe it or would ever think of giving it a try. Maybe they were a troll. I thought it a bit strange.

I say give it a try and report back here with the results! My guess is their eyes burned and watered so bad from the menthol that it cured the dryness hence the redness.

Putting toothpaste in your eyes is a BAD IDEA. That's why the thread was locked.

I would advise speaking to a doctor about your problem.

Try getting some natural tears to keep them moist.

I don't know if it works, but there are new eye drops that are gel. You could give it a try.

You can try a humidifier or use drops that are NOT anti-red; those only mask the problem and can possibly make your eyes worse later. My eye doctor recommended Systane and Optive to me; I prefer the Optive.

Also an easy tip, albeit not exactly natural is to line the bottom rim of your eye with white eyeliner. It will make the white of your eyes stand out.

I use Rohto V, it works well in my opinion. It's readily available at places like Walgreens, CVS, etc.
