Everyone loves their beauty sleep. But sometimes, no matter how long you rest, or how well you sleep, you wake up with dark, puffy (even swollen) circles under your eyes.
Dark circles are very common. They are due to leaky capillaries – small blood vessels, surrounding the eye, that break and then nest under the skin under your eyes. Yes, it’s harmless, but it can make you look aged and feel insecure, affecting your mood and self-esteem.
So, here’s a quick DIY to get your face back to beautiful. A very popular (and effective!) method is the tea bag treatment. Grab tea bags with lots of caffeine, as well as antioxidants – the caffeine removes excessive moisture, and the antioxidants soothe the skin. (Green or black tea are good choices to roll with.)
Use the tea bags for your tea, then place them in plastic bags and refrigerate them overnight. You want the tea bags very cool when you use them. Cooler temperature reduces redness and puffiness. Lie down comfortably, and place the tea bags over your eyes.
Make sure they are covering the affected areas under your eyes. Leave them on your eyes for about 15 minutes. Repeat as often as you wish – or until you see results. Remember to swap out used tea bags for fresh ones.
Good way to feel beautiful and refreshed – and use your tea for something other than as your beverage!
