Break Room Beauty Series: Tea Tips & Tricks

Hey beauties! I wanted to start a new series on my blog where I share beauty tips with items you can find in your job's break room. You can also watch this video on my YouTube channel ;)
Today's magical item is tea!

For Brighter Eyes

I had no idea that green tea has so many beneficial properties that can be used for beauty purposes. Instead of throwing out your green tea-bag, throw the bag the freezer for a quick 20 minutes then compress on your eyes for 10-15 minutes. This will decrease dark circles as well as de-puff those tired eyes. *Quick tip* I found the best/healthiest mineral concealer from Younique that works on my dark circles. It is filled with shea butter, fruit oil extracts and squalene which is used to create supple, moisturized skin. You can find it here. Don't forget to prime your face first with this amazing primer filled with vitamins!

For Flowing & Bright Hair

Who here wants long, flowing hair? I had no idea that green tea is actually known to promote hair follicle growth as well as nourishes hair! After washing your hair with shampoo you can apply water extracted from tea onto your hair. Did I mention that green tea is also a natural hair brightener? No more having to use SunIn if you want to brighten those tresses with color dye.

*Quick Tip* This may sound crazy, but because Younique's primer has vitamins in it (whenever you have any excess on your hands) just rub a bit onto your hair! It is great for taming those flyaways.

For Tightened Pores

Using chamomile tea can be amazing for shrinking those large pores that plague most people. Just take warm or cool chamomile tea water and apply to your face! Let it absorb and voila! Pours be gone!
