DIY Manzanilla Eye-Brightener

Hate dark circles under your eyes? Here’s a way to combat all that under-eye aggravation without any chemicals or cucumbers. It’s all in the manzanilla!

Manzanilla is used in this Mexican beauty remedy to clear puffiness and dark circles. (It’s also known as chamomile) You may have heard about putting tea bags on your eyes, but here’s a way to have your tea and drink it too!


You’ll Need:

  • Manzanilla/Chamomile tea bags
  • Boiling water
  • Cotton pads
  • Mason Jar
  • Optional: Lemon


  • Place your cotton pads inside your jar.
  • Let your tea bags soak in the hot water for 1-2 minutes
  • Pour some tea into your jar, soaking the cotton pads
  • Put the jar in your fridge!

You now have your own beauty treatment ready to go, just grab a cotton pad and use it on your eyes whenever you feel puffiness or see dark circles! Chamomile helps lighten the skins complexion, giving you a fresh glow.

Optional: (but encouraged)

Squeeze some lemon into your manzanilla tea and drink it! It’s a great detox. (And delicious!)

This is better than using the tea bags directly because you can store the infused cotton pads in a refrigerated jar, instead of taking hot fresh tea bags and putting them on your face. Heat will increase inflammation.
