Meanwhile, wash your face with cold water. Now it’s time to wash your eyes. Get some Triphla water in your palms and bend down to dip your eyes in your palms. Keep your eyes open to let Triphla water clean your eyes thoroughly. Blink your eyes a couple of times and move your face away.  Throw the water in your palms away and get more Triphla water from the pot to repeat the procedure.
