Rinse your hair using green or black tea. Put tea bags in boiling water for 15 minutes and allow it to cool for few hours. Now pour this concoction over just-washed hair and leave it on for a couple of minutes. Use shampoo and conditioner to lock the shine.
Spray cool green tea onto your face or use a cotton ball to apply it twice a day. This will help remove impurities and restore a healthy glow.
Cold compresses made out of tea bags play a vital role in relieving pain and reducing redness that happens out of sunburns.
