Only the Best for Your Skin: Benefits of Children’s Tears

The tears of a news editor will also work in a pinch.

Winter has done quite the number on our complexion. Many people find themselves with rough, dry, flaky problem skin that just won’t go away no matter how much they lather on the Vitamin E and aloe-packed lotion. Perhaps you are using the wrong type of lotion, or perhaps you need a new, more natural method of putting moisture into your skin.

What’s good for the eyes is good for the skin: tears are produced by the glands located inside your upper eyelid. This unique liquid keeps the surface of the eyeball clean and moist, and helps protect your eyes from damage.

How does this apply to skin? Since tears are designed to keep sensitive eyeballs moist, it’s also a great idea to apply it to the rest of your face!  Cry your way to smooth, sexy skin.

But keep in mind not everyone’s tears are as effective at healing dry problem skin. A child’s are more nutrient-rich than an adult’s. And since baby boys tend to cry more than baby girls, when your son scrapes his knee or gets into a fight, give him a hug and kiss him on the cheek, all the while lathering on those tears.  No more of your boring old skin lotions that cost $50 per ounce.

Because natural is always better. Always.
