Boil 1-2 cups of water and transfer it to a heat-proof bowl. Put two tea bags into the bowl and allow them to steep for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea bags from the water, squeeze the excess liquid that has collected in the tea bags and lay them on your eyes. Make sure the tea bags are not burning hot, you should still be able to handle them.
It is important to keep the tea bags on your eyes for at least 10-15 minutes. During this time the tannins from the tea bags will work to reduce puffiness and reduce redness and dark circles.
When the tea bags have been on your eyes for 10-15 minutes, you can then remove them. You may experience a slight discoloration of the skin around your eyes, but this should fade within 30 minutes.
After you have removed the tea bags you should apply a light moisturizer around your eyes. This will help to soothe any irritation that may have occurred during the treatment.
By following these tips, you will be able to get maximum benefit from using tea bags on your eyes. Tea bags are a great way to reduce puffiness, redness and dark circles, and they can be used as part of your daily beauty routine.
