These three tried and tested ways of using green tea bags in your skincare routine can help you a great deal:

Using a green tea bag dipped in water on your skin has a set of proven benefits such as soothing the skin, relieving irritation, and redness. You can always use the bag that you’ve used to brew your daily cup of green tea.
Keeping the dipped tea bags on your eyes and relaxing for a few minutes is also a great way to bid farewell to those dark circles, by the way.
2. Freeze and use
You can freeze the dipped green tea bag, or simply let the tea bag sit in water for a few minutes and then pour the water into an ice tray, place it in the freezer, and make your own green-tea infused ice cubes!
This can help you get rid of any puffiness on your face and give you a brighter, even-toned skin. Doing so for 5 to 10 minutes at night can really give you amazing results.
3. Add the leaves to a face pack
You can also cut open a new/a used green tea bag, scoop out the tea leaves and add it to your regular face packs such as the classic besan-curd combination or simply mix it up with tomato puree face pack that you use to get rid of skin tanning. The green tea will add that extra dose of brightness, nourishment, and glow to your skin.
Don’t throw away those green tea bags! Save them for your skin.
