Eating for healthier eyes
A set of bright, sparkly peepers can really stop you in your tracks. We all remember that dark, brooding guy with the magnetically dark eyes that passed us on the street and we’ve all had pangs of jealousy when meeting a woman with enormous crystal blue peepers.
Eyes can entrance, intrigue and delight, so why not get yours sparkling bright? (Ooh! We love an unexpected rhyme!)
