DIY Tea Bags Eye Treatment

Did you know that the antioxidants in tea can be highly beneficial to your skin especially the delicate skin around the eyes?  Tea tightens the skin while the caffeine is highly effective in reducing the dark circles and puffiness.  Try this at home eye treatment to improve your appearance and dump the appearance of tired looking eyes, or black circles.

DIY Tea Bags Eye Treatment
  1. Take two green tea bags and place them in warm almost boiled water, let them steep for about 10 seconds.
  2. Wrap them in plastic wrap, glad wrap or place them in a freezer bag.  Leave them in the fridge for about a half hour or the freezer for about 15 minutes.  Remove after they are completely cooled.
  3. Lay down and relax, gently place the cooled tea bags over each eye for about 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Enjoy the benefits of this DIY homemade remedy for tired dark puffy eyes.
  • Tea bags are full of antioxidants which soothe the skin.
  • You will notice best results if you continue using tea bags on a regular basis.

  1. I have heard of this but have never tried it. I don't usually have puffy eyes but would try it if I did.

  2. Does it have to be green tea? Doesn't black tea also have antioxidants?
