To calm insect bites

Put the used tea bags in the freezer for a few minutes, then apply to the affected skin areas. You will feel the itch instantly calm.

Reduce body odor

There are people who deal with a strong smell of perspiration that no deodorant seems to combat, since used tea bags can be very useful.

The way of using them is simple, they can be placed in the bath with hot water for baths of immersion, as well as soaking them in lukewarm water and pass them on the armpits. Both ways reduce body odor.

Fight foot odor

Simply do foot baths with warm water and a few tea bags, for 15-20 minutes every day. Antioxidants help remove bad odor on the feet and eliminate fungus.

To deflate puffy eyes

This is perhaps the most well-known benefit of tea bags used, and those who do not know how it works should only be placed in the refrigerator and then on the bags of the eyes until the inflammation subsides.

To clean the skin

Put some tea bags in boiling water for a few minutes. Once the liquid has cooled, squeeze the sachets well and use the resulting infusion to cleanse the skin every morning.

To combat dark circles

Place tea bags in hot water until infused. Once the liquid has cooled, submerge some cotton disks until they are well embedded in the tea, and then express the excess liquid. Store the cottons in the freezer all night to harden, and the next day place them on the dark circles until they melt from contact with the skin. You will see how your eyes look much better and revitalized.
