How to: hydrate moisture-hungry eyes

Working in magazine publishing it might aswell be the festive season for me already, brain full of Christmas puns and winter techniques I tend to get confused around this time of year and often find myself surprised at the golden appearance of the leaves that scream out it’s still autumn. However, the clocks went back today so it can no longer be ignored – winter is on its way!
