Soothe Skin and Puffy Eyes with Used Tea Bags

After enjoying your cup of tea, there are many things you can do with a teabag before throwing the little bag of goodness away.

The numerous 'catechin' polyphenols in green tea have antibacterial and skin healing properties.

Tea also contains tannins, which helps tighten skin and improve blood circulation.

Here are a few suggestions:

Heal Razor Burns and Minor Cuts

Press cool, damp tea bag over skin.

Not only it will make you feel better, but it will also help with disinfecting and healing the effected area.

Soothe Tired, Itchy or Puffy Eyes  

Place cold tea bags over closed eyelids.

Beyond soothing the discomfort, the tannins in tea will stimulate blood circulation and reduce puffiness and dark circles.

Relieve Minor Sunburns, Bruises, Insect Bites and Cold Sores

Place a cool, damp tea bag over the affected area, and keep it on like a compress. It will relieve the pain, reduce swelling and promote healing.

Keep your used tea bags in the refrigerator!
