Her tip is receiving applaud from fellow tiktokers who have tried the hack and are quite happy with results. Ayaat Mishaal’s 9 second video has garnered 6 million views till now and counting.

What doctors about this viral hack

However, according to experts applying vaseline on the corner of the eyes may not be as helpful. One can instead try a doctor recommended eye drop to prevent teary eyes during the winters.

"In winter, our eyes can get drier. Using eye drops that add moisture can be helpful and might stop eyes from becoming watery in the first place," explained Dr. Alexa Hecht, an optometrist in Toronto while speaking with The Post.

The doctor also added, "The skin around your eyes is very thin. Putting a thick ointment like Vaseline there can make small bumps called milia more likely to appear."

According to experts using a thick product like vaseline may also cause clogging of the meibomian glands of the eye lids.

How to naturally prevent eyes from watering in winters:

Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to maintain overall body hydration, including your eyes.

Use Humidifiers: Keep indoor air moist with humidifiers to prevent excessive dryness, which can trigger watery eyes.

Blink Regularly: Remember to blink often, especially when using electronic devices, to keep your eyes moist.

Protect from Wind: Shield your eyes from cold winds by wearing sunglasses or glasses to reduce wind exposure.

Warm Compress: Apply a warm compress over closed eyes to soothe and relieve dryness.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Include foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like fish and flaxseeds, in your diet for eye health.

Avoid Eye Rubbing: Refrain from rubbing your eyes, as it can irritate and worsen watering.

Use Artificial Tears: Consider preservative-free artificial tears to lubricate your eyes gently.

Consult with an eye care professional: If you experience persistent eye discomfort or watering for personalized advice.
