Read Isaiah 25:6-9
6 Here on Mount Zion the Lord Almighty will prepare a banquet for all the nations of the world—a banquet of the richest food and the finest wine. 7Here he will suddenly remove the cloud of sorrow that has been hanging over all the nations. The Sovereign Lord will destroy death for ever! He will wipe away the tears from everyone’s eyes and take away the disgrace his people have suffered throughout the world. The Lord himself has spoken!
9 When it happens, everyone will say, “He is our God! We have put our trust in him, and he has rescued us. He is the Lord! We have put our trust in him, and now we are happy and joyful because he has saved us.”
Verse 8: "He will wipe away the tears from everyone's eyes and take away the disgrace his people have suffered..."
The thought of God wiping away tears also occurs in Revelation. I think this is about more than washing the face - but about the healing of hurts.
Lord you know my tears. You know what causes them. Bring healing to my heart I pray.
