Beauty Quickie: Find yourself exclaiming, “If only I could get rid of these dark under-eye circles and eye puffiness!” Well, our loves stop saying it and actually do something about it right this second! What is one quick method? Try using tea bags for puffy eyes; it is a quick option that can soothe, revive and ultimately reduce any puff or darkness currently plaguing your eye area.
How can a tea bag help fix this common beauty problem? It’s really simple actually. You see, caffeinated teas contain tannins, which are not only responsible for the color and astringent flavor of your tea of choice; but it is also a mild diuretic. Which means it basically has an anti-inflammatory effect.
The caffeine can noticeably shrink blood vessels just under the skin. This action then reduces any swelling or puffiness you may be experiencing under the eyes. Furthermore, the constricted blood vessels can additionally help to eliminate dark circles. The tannins in tea such as green tea, can draw out fluid in order to further alleviate any puffiness while also tightening up the skin.
So then, if you would like to treat “tired” eyes, investing in a box of tea bags could prove to be very useful. Nevertheless, all of this leads to an important question: how do I use tea bags for puffy eyes the right way?

Once again, simple! Soak or steep two bags of teas as you normally would if you were going to have a cup of tea to drink. Next, squeeze out the excess liquid from both of the bags. After that, let the bags cool and “chill” in your refrigerator for around 10 to 20 minutes. Lastly, then begin your eye treatment by placing the chilled tea bags directly on your closed eyes for 15 to 30 minutes.
If time is tight, you can still derive benefits by letting the tea bags sit on the eyes for 5 to 10 minutes. In that short amount of time you will still notice your eyes taking on a fresher, more alive look.
