feel the tears coming on at the worst time? Tilt your head up &
look directly at an indoor light. It will constrict your pupils, making
it hard for tears to pour out. Hold your breath & do math in your
head. Crying comes from the emotional side; engaging the logical side
will help override that.
you’ve GOT to hold it in, get super distracted by anything…reading,
texts, a conversation-just nothing funny! Sit up with your legs crossed
one over the other, which relieves pressure on your bladder.
a zit? Put something cold on it & slather on some benzoyl-peroxide
or salycylic acid. If you don’t have those products, mixing in some
crushed aspirin with moisturizer reduces swelling and Visine will lessen
the redness. Thanks, Cosmopolitan Magazine!
