Green tea also has some quantity of vitamin K which helps in reducing the under eye dark circles. Just keep two tea bags in the fridge for 30 mins and then place them cold on your eyes for 20 mins. Do this twice a week and you’ll see results.
2. Reduces your body aging and gives a youthful appearance

If you’re not a fan of drinking green tea, you can use it in other ways too. Take green tea powder and add some water and coconut oil in it to make a paste. Apply it on your face as a mask, leave it on for 20-30 mins and rinse off your face with lukewarm water.
You’ll feel like a new person.
