Dry eyes can strike at any time, whether you're at home, at work or somewhere in between, but this new gadget will help banish soreness and irritation.

Peep Club's new bottle-shaped humidifier is designed to help keep your eyes hydrated whether they’re open or closed.

The gentle mist works to replace moisture in the air around your bed or workspace. This helps eyes to stay hydrated in-between blinks and combats the drying conditions of modern homes and workplaces.

And fun fact, many of us don’t fully close our eyes during sleep, so the humidifier can help keep the exposed eye surface hydrated overnight.

These benefits also extend to your skin, which will be better moisturised, plumped and glowing as a result!

Where to buy: Peep Club, £55
