You probably already know that tea has many health benefits, including strengthening your immune system and providing a powerful source of antioxidants. You might even know that drinking tea also provides many beauty-related benefits, such as healthier skin with a natural glow (no makeup needed), but you might not be aware of some of the following beauty benefits you can receive from used tea bags.
When you’re done steeping your tea, think twice about throwing that tea bag away. If you can receive more benefits from the tea you drink, why not do it?
So try the following tips to get the most out of your tea!
- Store a few used tea bags in your fridge or freezer. After a long day of work, or in the morning (if you’re having difficulty sleeping) you can relax with the tea bags over your eyes to reduce puffiness and soothe tired eyes.
- Place a used tea bag in the bathtub with you. Your skin will absorb even more of the beauty and health benefits of tea.
- Alternatively, you can dip cotton balls into cold tea and use these to soothe tired, puffy eyes and to cleanse and rejuvenate skin.
If you’ve found you’ve had a few too many drinks, a nice cup of tea may help bring you back to life and recover from the fiercest of hangovers. It just goes without saying that tea is a miracle drink… and then some!
