Relieve Eye Puffiness with Black Tea
Black tea is full of astringent compounds called tannins and caffeine that are effective at reducing swelling and discoloration under the eyes. They are also good at tightening puffiness and bags under the eyes. Eye puffiness is usually due to swelling of tissues around the eyes and fluid buildup. It is recommended to let a cool tea bag rest on each eye for 10 minutes.
