Skin benefits of using used and leftover tea bags

The true elixir of the gods is tea. You won't believe how many skin benefits it offers in addition to being delightful to drink. The leftover tea bags that we regularly discard can still be used for a variety of purposes. Therefore, you need to be aware of these additional uses for tea bags if you want to maximize the use of your kitchen's products for beauty purposes.

Body Scrub

An antioxidant scrub that will leave your face gleaming is fantastic for people with dull skin and even aids in the treatment of acne. Simply lay aside your used green tea bags and allow them to air dry. Use them and a little water to scrub your face once it has been well cleaned. Additionally to reducing acne, the catechins' ability to battle bacteria will leave your skin bright and healthy.

Face Mask

Since white tea has the highest concentration of antioxidants of any tea, you shouldn't toss it. White tea leaves that have been used before can be ground into a paste and then applied to the skin as a face mask. This evens out skin tone and fights the effects of photoaging.

Reduce Under-eye Puffiness

Caffeine is a common ingredient in eye creams. Did you know that this is caused by caffeine's ability to constrict blood vessels and remove fluids? This significantly lessens droopy under-eye bags. So all you have to do is freeze your used tea bags for ten minutes, remove them, then place them over closed eyelids for an additional ten minutes. However, because it dehydrates, it is not advised for people who have dry-caused dark circles.


Both black tea and green tea are excellent for curing sunburns in their own unique ways because they both include tannins that lessen the pain associated with the inflammation and polyphenols that protect against the effects of oxidative stress. Before using, place the tea bags in the refrigerator for best benefits so that the cooling action will further reduce inflammation.

Tone Oily and Acne-prone Skin

Save the tea in your priceless chamomile tea bag! This soothing tea is an astringent that soothes, tones, and brightens skin in addition to reducing inflammation from the inside out. Apply the chilled used tea bags to a clean face after putting them in the refrigerator. Your skin will feel mattified, and blemishes will gradually fade as well.
