If you're suffering from a head cold or consider yourself an emotional crier, facial tissues can help. These paper products come in all kinds of formats that range from super-soft to tissues infused with nose-soothing lotion. Before you head out to the drugstore, read on to learn more about how you can best use facial tissues, and what to look for in a high-quality product.
When you have a cold, you're probably blowing your nose almost hundreds of times throughout the day. Over time, your nose can get red and might even turn raw which makes cold symptoms even more unpleasant than they already are. Thankfully, there are some facial tissues that are infused with a skin-soothing lotion to prevent dryness, redness, and irritation. Use these special facial tissues if you have sensitive skin or if you're concerned about the issue when you're sick. It's important to note that you should never use lotion-infused facial tissues to clean your eyeglasses since the lotion can smear on the lens and make them dirtier than they were to begin with.
Facial tissues are typically sold in three different types of packaging. Small pocket-sized tissue packs are perfect to pop in your car, purse, or book bag so you always have them when you're on the go. These small tissue packages are also a great way to keep your eyes dry during funerals or weddings. Stash one in your suit or coat pocket so you'll always have a facial tissue right when you need one. The second type of facial tissue sold comes in a cube-shaped box. These tissues are perfect for small spaces like offices, or to place on your nightstand when you're feeling under the weather.
Finally, a "flat box" type of facial tissue is sold in a long, rectangular-shaped cardboard box. These are the most common facial tissues you'll see in public places, businesses, and clinical settings. No matter which type you purchase, make sure that the tissues are soft and absorbent. You can use them to dry your eyes when you cry, wipe your nose when it's runny, or to clean up when applying or removing makeup. Check to make sure that the facial tissues you buy are flushable or else they may end up causing an issue with your plumbing. Always throw your tissues away in a responsible manner when you're done using them.
