We all get those dark under eye circles, whether it is because of lack of sleep, drinking less water or as a result of stress and other outside factors such as regular exposure to dust and pollution.
But instead of going for the expensive cosmetic products you find in the market that may contain a multitude of ingredients that are not always good for your skin in the long run and that will also be heavy on your pocket, you can try this one trick at home that will actually take care of your dark circles and significantly reduce their appearance.

Did you know that if you have a cup of green tea at night, not only will it take care of your under eye dark circles but will also take care of your midnight hunger pangs and help you reduce your weight?
At least an hour or so after you have your dinner, prepare a mug of green tea preferably with two tea bags and have it while it is hot or warm. Once you have finished drinking the tea, take out the tea bags and put it in the refrigerator for at least 10 to 15 minutes. In the meanwhile, cleanse your face and make sure there is no trace of makeup or dirt on your skin. Now take out the tea bags place them on your eyes. Lie down and relax and let the cool tea bags ease out your stress and get you ready for the night. Once the tea bags stop being as cold, you can get them off your face and rinse your face with cold water.

This will work best if you do it for at least three or four times a day in the initial few days, and once your dark circles are completely gone, you can do this once every alternate day to prevent further dark circles.
Here’s How It Works
The tea bags contain caffeine that will shrink your blood vessels and will reduce the fluid retention that is there in your tissues. This will make the skin around your eyes look fresh and radiant and make it look naturally healthy. When the tea bags are cold, they will shrink the tissues on your skin, which will reduce the appearance of puffy eyes.
Here Are The Other Benefits Too
Green tea has very high antioxidant properties that will help you reduce weight and will also keep you full in between meals, which will prevent hunger pangs and binging.
So the next time you reach out for the under eye products, reach out for the green tea instead.
