Green Tea Ice Cubes

Try this: Brew some green tea, let it cool off, then pour it into an ice cube tray and put it in your freezer. Use a cube to clear up redness. I usually lay down on my couch and keep a greet tea ice cube on my face for 15 minutes.

Salt Water

Cold Water Wash

Someone mentioned ice cubes, but if you want a quicker solution (or just simpler one), always wash your face with cold water. To remove makeup, use lukewarm, but always start the day and finish with cold water. It also makes your skin firm and prevents wrinkles.
