Puffy eyes. We’ve all had ’em. Whether you’ve been up all night for a study/cram session or partying until the wee hours of the morning, I’ve got a cruelty-free beauty fix that’ll help you look well rested, de-puffed, and more like your usual fresh-faced self.

While cucumber slices on the eyelids may be the usual go-to, we’re mixing things up a bit with good old-fashioned tea! Tea is actually more cooling than cucumbers are, and it makes for a great skin toner because of its astringent qualities.

What you’ll need:
1 teabag of chamomile or green tea
2 round cotton makeup pads

  • After cleaning your skin, brew a cup of chamomile or green tea and allow it to cool.
  • Soak two round cotton pads in the tea and squeeze out any excess liquid.
  • Place one on each of your eyes for about 10 to 15 minutes.

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
