The Benefits of Tea Bags on Eyes

With the hectic lives most people lead, looking a little tired from time to time is an inevitable consequence. While the key to youthful skin is a combination of factors, including diet, exercise, genetics, and beauty regimen, a lack of sleep is often the culprit for tired, puffy eyes. One of the easiest solutions to restore a youthful beauty to tired eyes is the use of tea bags. When looking for an easy solution to tired eyes, there are many benefits of tea bags on your eyes as a beauty ritual.

The Benefits of Tea Bags

One of the biggest benefits of tea bags on your eyes is that they help relieve the appearance of tired eyes. Tea has high levels of caffeine which has been proven to help improve the elasticity of skin for a younger look. The sudden jolt of topical caffeine tightens blood vessels which helps eliminate puffiness, swelling, and dark circles. Tea is also high in tannins, which is similar to caffeine, and offers the same aid in constricting blood vessels. While there are many caffeine-infused beauty products available, they often lack the extra boost provided by the tannins in tea.

Another one of the great benefits of tea bags on your eyes is that not only is it effective, but it is also easy and relaxing. While you can use any tea bags, green and black tea often have the highest caffeine and tannins. Simply steep two tea bags in hot water and then let them cool to room temperature. Never apply them directly to your eyes while steaming hot. If they are still too hot, you can put them in the freezer for a moment, but make sure they are still warm. The warmth of tea bags is part of the treatment. Apply to eyes for 5-10 minutes for a relaxing spa-like feeling. Aside from being easy and relaxing, tea bags on your eyes as a beauty treatment is an affordable way to perk up your tired eyes after a long night!

While most people know drinking tea, especially green tea, is great for your skin, not many know about the potency of using tea bags on their eyes. They are an easy fix for a common problem!
