Just a Spot of Tea, Please. How to Decrease Eye Puffiness with Bags of Tea

It’s the end of the semester and I’m exhausted. This time of the year is bitter sweet, because I’m so close to being done, but the next few days will be so draining and demanding. It’s a known fact I’m not going to sleep at all. Mainly because I leave everything to the last minute, but that’s a different story.

I recently did a review on Olay Fresh Effects Eye Cream. I know creams and moisturizes, particularly under eye creams, can be expensive. There is a cheap, quick method to reducing those puffy tired eyes. If you’re a tea drinker this will work perfectly for you.

Tea has caffeine, caffeine makes people happy and happy people just don’t like tired.

You can use plain or green tea bags. The tea grains contain anti-irritant solution that will help reduce redness and inflammation around the eye area. Chamomile tea bags also contain natural, herbal ingredients that will help decrease puffiness.

If you have two bags of tea try this beauty secret

Cold bags of tea:
1.) Moisten two tea bags in water
2.) Place the tea bags in the freezer for twenty minutes (the cold help shrinks puffiness)
3.) Once cold place the bags of tea over your eyes for fifteen to twenty minutes

Warm bags of tea:
1.) Warm up a cup of water
2.) Place the tea bags in the warm water and let them moisten
3.) Carefully wring out the tea bags so they aren’t heavy or dripping (don’t wring them out to hard or you’ll lose all those natural ingredients you need for your eyes!)
4.) Once at a warm, comfortable temperature place the bags over your eyes for ten to fifteen minutes or until they are no longer warm.

This method is actually really relaxing, the smell and the aroma of the tea also calms me down which says a lot.  If you look tired because school is taking over you life, try this technique; you have nothing to lose except your eye puffiness.
