Due to lack of sleep, hormonal changes and allergies often cause tired swollen eyes as the skin of our eyes is softer, thinner and more sensitive to inflammation. The best ways to eradicate the tired swollen eyes make use of chilled tea bags.
The antioxidants, caffeine, and tannins in green, black, and chamomile teas help reduce irritation and work to soothe your skin rapidly. The anti-inflammatory properties in teas also reduce fluid retention and promote blood circulation around your eyes – giving your eyes a fresh, renewed appearance.
To make use of chilled tea bags – briefly steep 2 green, black, or chamomile tea bags in hot water for less than a minute. Then remove the tea bags from the water and chill in a small bowl in the refrigerator. Once chilled, place 1 bag over each closed eyelid. Leave on your lids for 5 to 15 minutes.
