12 Astonishing Things You Can Do With Used Tea Bags


Many atimes after we finish drinking our green teas or teas as a whole, the next best place we believe it will look better in, is in the waste bin. I am very sure as many read this topic, they were like ''Chidnma, you have got to be kidding me! Used tea bags? Like really?''.
Yes beautiful people, used tea bags.

The truth is, I often do the first and second on the list which we will see later on. However, I am as astonished as you are with the rest on the list. The interesting part of it all is that, rather than spending so much 'money and time in the beauty stores or spas or in the hospitals or employ the services of someone, you can just stay in the comfort of your home and treat yourself real good.

So why don't we see these awesome list together?
I hope you get inspired by them. ENJOY!

1) Did you know that you can remove your eye bags and dark circles with used tea bags?

There are times that you sleep so late at night because you were trying to get certain things done and you need to be up very early the next morning. By the time you wake up, you get to have these terrible eye bags and dark circles around your eyes. So, how do you get rid of them?

If you know that you will be staying up late, of course you would have already drank your tea, put your used tea bag/bags in a flat plate or cup and put it in the fridge/freezer (freezer works best for me). When you wake up in the morning, before you take your bathe, take the tea bags and press them  gently against your eye bags for a minute or two. The result will be unbelievable, I tell. It will be as though you slept all through the night. It works for me every time *Winks*

2) Did you know that you can get rid of puff face with used tea bags?
Puffy face especially chins comes most times with staying up late. To get rid of them, take the your cold used tea bags (As explained in point 1), press them gently against the puffy areas of your face before you take your bathe and be prepared to be amazed by the outcome. This also works all the time for me.

3) Did you know that used tea bags serves as nutrients to your plants? That is, they help feed your plants which in turn helps to make the grow well.
