I solemnly swear...to tell you when I have tried something found on Pinterest or online that doesn't work. Or, does work. But in this case, didn't.
I tested out an Internet 'beauty tip' that has been floating around. I will save you some time. Black tea will not give your skin a 'tanned' effect. I soaked in a tub full of coffee and black tea for a half hour. The results: I smelled really good. My tub got a ring. I was still pale. Thankfully, the price of this experiment wasn't too STEEP.
AHAHAHAHAHAHA, get it?
