If you've been hiding in the bathroom crying over something silly, but you need to leave soon to interact with other people, there are a few things you can do to prevent embarrassment. If you don't want others to know that you were upset, putting on a smile isn't enough. The redness or puffiness of your face might give away what you've been trying to hide. That's why you should follow these tips to hide the fact that you were just crying:
1. Wash Your Face with Cold Water to Reduce Redness
Since you probably don't want to splash water on your entire face to ruin your makeup, you can wet a washcloth and dab it on your face. That should reduce any redness on your cheeks and eyes. It should also feel soothing, which means it'll help you calm down. Make sure you take deep breaths while you're washing off, so that your voice and facial expression don't end up giving you away.
