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.

Tea leaves contain skin-healing as well as antibaterial compounds. They also contain tannins, which tighten skin and improve blood circulation.

Don't throw away your used tea bags. Keep them in your refrigerator instead.

Heal Razor Burns and Minor Cuts

  1. Drop a used tea bag into a cup of water and let it get soaked in for a few minutes.
