I’m not sure I’m better about not flinching at things flying directly at my face/eyes, including water. I have become, however, very comfortable spraying Asea into my face with my eyes open. I probably still blink through it out of natural reflex — however I know it’s safer than water and hopefully much of it is getting into my open eyes.
The drawback of this comfort is that, if I’m not paying attention, I am liable to spray other things (like face-refresh toners and leave-in hair conditioners) around or at my face without thinking of closing my eyes! —Which, with anything other than Asea, is pretty disaster (and then I definitely run for the Asea to wash it out.) Very fortunately I use those other spray-type things very rarely, like 1-3 times a year, which also means I tend to have forgotten about the last time I tripped myself up and kept my eyes open while spraying one of those things near me.Follow-up to http://ferrydust.com/journal/2333/flinch.
