2. Remove the tea bags and place them in your plastic baggie to store in the refrigerator.I tend to leave mine in the refrigerator overnight. Remember: the cooler the bags, the better they work!

3. Remove your tea bags from the refrigerator and drain the excess liquid to avoid them dripping all over your face… unless you are into that sort of thing!

4. Put some Bob Marley on your ipod, place the tea bags completely over your dark circles, and get horizontal on your favorite couch.
