    Four Ways to Use Tea to Boost Your Skincare Regimen

     
    When you need a little pick-me-up this summer, skip the iced coffee and grab an iced tea instead! Your skin will thank you. In case you haven't heard, iced tea is becoming the go-to drink for health, skincare and beauty benefits.

    1. Iced tea is not only a refreshing drink to quench your thirst, but it can also help reduce puffy and dark under-eye circles. The caffeine contained in Earl Grey and black tea bags helps shrink blood vessels under the skin and eliminates darkness around the eyes.

    2. To add moisture and tone your skin, dampen your face with cool green tea. Use a cotton pad soaked in green tea to draw out impurities, minimize pores, and return your skin to a healthy glow.

    3. No one wants a tan to fade fast when summer comes to an end. Prep yourself early to make your tan last with this beauty secret: rub your body with a sponge soaked in black tea or dip into a bathtub full of it to enhance tanned skin.

    As an added bonus, green tea boosts endurance and increases the body’s ability to burn fat as fuel. Stay caffeinated this summer with freshly brewed iced tea and spice it up with a lemon or fresh mint.

    Remember, put your skin first and don't let the sun’s rich vitamin D fool you.
