Under the eyes

March 8, 2017 / No comments / in Skin Care / by avacareadmin

Late-nights and environmental toxins can stress the delicate skin around the eyes, causing puffiness and dark circles. A natural remedy that is an alternative to the old cucumber standby is green tea bags. Loaded with antioxidants, green tea bags shrink swelling and reduce the fluids around the eyes.

Bags can form under the eyes because of aging, fluid retention, lack of sleep, allergies and even genetics. Regardless of the cause, eye bags can make you look older than you are and diminish the overall appearance of your skin.

Step 1

Place two green-tea bags into a pot of water. Put the pot on the stove over high heat and bring the water to a boil.

Step 2

Turn the heat off. Let the tea bags steep for 30 minutes.

Step 3

Remove the tea bags carefully from the hot water. Place them in a bowl and put them in the refrigerator for a few hours to chill.

Step 4

Squeeze each tea bag gently to remove the excess water when the bags are very cold. Lay down in a comfortable spot and place a tea bag over each eye.

Step 5

Leave the tea bags on your eyes for 10 to 15 minutes. Repeat this process daily until the bags are gone.
