You need to make yourself a cup of green tea(do not put any sugar into it). Then, pour it into a small spraying bottle (make sure to cool it down first) . After that, you can keep it in the fridge and spray it onto your face whenever you need it as a freshener for your skin during hot or stressful days. The leftover teabags can be used by putting it into the fridge as well and place in onto your eyes to reduce puffiness in the morning.
