    So, I think you must have something wrong with your eyes.For swollen is a sign of eye problem. Anyway, tea bags are very effective with some swollen eyes or eye strain, or poor vision. The reason is that tea bags, hot and cold, put them on your eyes alternately, that would speed up the blood circulation of your eyes, and make them heal quickly. Just try to pay more attention to other aspects of your eyes.

    Yep, it is true. And you know what? I know a lot of guys who are fond of this way. First of all, you should know that tea contains active ingredient which is very good for releasing your puffy eyes. However, you should know the right way of applying tea bags. Before you give your eyes a tea bag compress, you should put them in the fridge to cool them. You have to know that the cold tea bags can work much better. Then take them out of the fridge to place them on your eyes for at least 15 min. Of course, you had better close your eyes during the process. You can choose to do this before you go to bed. I wish this could help you.

    Yes, its true. The tannins found in black and green tea constrict the blood vessels and tighten the skin around your eyes, reducing puffiness and rejuvenating your look. So follow the steps listed below: 1, Steep two tea bags in hot water. When the tea has steeped remove the bags and allow the wet bags to cool slightly. 2, Place the warm tea bag on your eyes and leave the bags until they start to feel cool. 3, You can also place the wet tea bags in the refrigerator to cool. Cold should act as a natural astringent so cooler tea bags often work faster, but are not as comfortable as warm tea bags. 4, Lie on your back for a few minutes. Consider putting a towel under your head in case liquid from the tea bags drips.
