No, we’re not talking about eyes — we’re talking about pimples. Bryan Barron, who heads the research team at cosmetics company Paula’s Choice, explains:

“Some people get more inflamed pimples because their skin’s immune system has a stronger response to what is going on underneath the skin. So, it is worth a try. You want to use something that says it gets the red out like Visine. It won’t work if you just use artificial tears or something that is designed for dry eyes.”

Barron says this trick won’t work for everyone — and won’t zap zits — but it is harmless to try. He recommends putting a few drops on a cotton swab and dabbing on the tetrahydrozoline ophthalmic — that’s the generic name for Visine’s main ingredient.
