Your favorite tea with two uses.

You will need:

Your favorite tea, bags boiled, and cooled.
Sandwich bag.
Fresh squeezed lemon juice.
Glass of water.
bowl and spoon.
1/2 of an avocado.

Save your tea bags from the night before and put them in a baggie, refrigerate. Use the cool tea bags and place over your eyes for 5 minutes. Applying used tea bags to your eyes will help reduce dark circles. If
you use chamomile or green tea bags you receive the extra benefits of
the nourishing nutrients being applied to the sensitive skin around your eyes. Used tea bags can help effectively reduce dark circles and tone skin.

You can use the tea bags even further by making a scrub with the contents inside. 

Pour the used tea from the bags into a bowl and add some honey, forming a paste.  Grab your 1/2 avocado, spoon the contents out, remove the pit, add avocado fruit into the bowl, and mash with a fork into the tea and honey mixture.

This is pretty messy, like a coffee scrub, so make sure you cover your clothes with a towel and put your hair back, or wrap,  to avoid the tea from going in your hair.
Apply the mixture onto your skin for 10 minutes, then scrub gently. Rinse with warm, then cool water.

*Helpful tip: 

Take the juice from a fresh squeezed lemon, and add it to your water.  Replace your morning coffee with lemon water! Lemon water is an effective energy booster that harnesses clean energy throughout the body. The hydrating properties in lemon water fill in the appearance of dark circles and wrinkles. So start your day with lemon water!
