    When we cry, our lacrimal glands have to produce tear fluid, a process supported by increased blood flow to our eyes.
    That’s why your eyes get bloodshot and your pupils dilate.
    Our eyes also tend to puff up when we cry.
    The salt in tears leads to water retention and swelling around our eyes.
    More blood is also flowing to the whole facial region, causing a strained, red, puffy face-the same physiological reaction that comes with the “Fight or Flight” instinct.
