Step 1

Steep two teabags in a mug of hot water for 3-5 minutes.

Step 2

Squeeze excess tea from teabags. Put teabags on a plate and place in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes or until teabags are cold.

Step 3

Lie down on a couch or lean back in a comfortable chair. Put a teabag over each eye and let them sit for 15-30 minutes with eyes closed.

Step 4

Remove teabags from eyelids and wipe excess tea from eyes gently with a damp hand towel.
