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.

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
