Green Tea Bags For Dark Circles? Hell Yes!
If skin problems had pageants of their own, dark circles would definitely be a winner! It's known that 7 out of 10 people have dark circles and out of all skin concerns, they are the most stubborn!
So first things first, why do practically ALL of us have dark circles and puffy eyes? Living in the time and age where we’re all overworked, stressed, sleeping less and multi tasking between work, families, relationships and things that truly make us happy (hobbies), can be taxing. In fact, taxing would be an understatement. But don’t you worry girl, we’ve got you sorted on this problem. Presenting the ultimate solution for fatigue, puffiness and dark circles! *drum roll* It’s GREEN TEA!
Green tea is something that you’ll find in everyone’s homes as people now a days are using it as an alternative to regular teas for weight loss! But did you know that green tea’s benefits go beyond weight loss? SO once you’re done relishing that hot cup of green tea, squeeze the water out and let the tea bag sit for about 10 minutes at room temperature, or you could also refrigerate it.
Then, just place it over your eyes and let it rest for about 15 minutes. Remember to do this consistently to see positive results!
How does green tea help? It is extremely rich in anti oxidants and tannins that help lighten the dark circles. It also lessens the puffiness and the tiredness under the eyes by tightening the skin, and as we all know the skin around the eyes is very thin and can look tired easily, this really helps to reduce that.
Here’s a few extra things that you can do to reduce your dark circles -
1. invest in a good under eye cream. We love the Forest Essentials Light Hydrating Hydra Eye Gel!
2. Get good sleep. When you hit the bed, put your phone away and doze off for at least 8 hours! Make sure you drink water before you go to bed!
3. Go easy on the sugar and caffeine. Slowly and steadily, try to make significant reductions in your daily caffeine intake. If you have the willpower, cut out caffeine altogether!
