We all need to “let it out” sometimes. Crying, whether it’s because of a breakup, a loss, or just out of sheer frustration, is actually beneficial according to researchers, who tell us that “emotional tears, such as those formed in distress or which are related to grief, contain more toxic byproducts than tears of irritation – those that may happen when peeling onions,” for instance.1
Researchers have found that tears remove some of the chemicals built up in the body from stress. New York Times reporter, Benedict Carey, referred to tears in a recent piece as “emotional perspiration1.”Maybe this is why those who are near and dear to us, sensing emotional misery, often tell us we need “a good cry.”
But, a good cry, as cathartic as it may be, can leave you with puffy, red eyes and a red nose. But, there is no reason why the world needs to know you’ve just had a “good cry.” Here are some beauty fixes that can help. If you’re at work, you may need to improvise. Throwing some cool water on your face may help and holding some cold wet paper towels over your closed lids may make your eyes look less puffy.
But, a quick solution, if your tears spillover at home, is to use the
Bausch + Lomb THERA°PEARL® Eye Mask, which can help your eyes look and feel refreshed. This unique eye mask, which can also help relieve puffy eyes and swelling, may be used cold and contains hundreds of tiny pearls of gel that contour to the shape of your face, delivering soothing relief from post-crying puffiness.
This must-have beauty essential measures 9 inches by 2.75 inches, so it takes up virtually no room in the fridge or freezer. It features a comfortable band to help keep it in place. The Bausch + LombTHERA°PEARL® Eye Mask should be applied to skin or closed eyelids for no more than the doctor recommended time of 20 refreshing minutes. Use it cold to help you get puffiness-relief quickly, leaving you looking like yourself again.
