If you apply a cool, used teabag to your skin, you will be amazed at how much it may soothe any discomfort. Or place them on your tired eyes. Lie down, relax, place a teabag over each eye and relax for a few minutes. You will be pleasantly surprised. It can also help reduce bruising, sunburn, stings and bites. The tea draws out the toxins and lessens swelling and painful feelings.
