this is how I use it.
1-take one tea bag of green tea
2-now boil one small cup of water and dip green tea bag in it
3-keep this cup with green tea+ tea bag in it for about 3 to 4 hours in fridge
4-Now take a bowl with three full glasses of water at normal room temperature.
5-add that one cup of green tea in three glasses of water
6-either dip your face for one minute (with pauses in between for catching breath) or splash this water on you skin for at least for 20 seconds.
