Some tea can do wonders for dark circles and not just for the perk of caffeine when you drink it!
If you apply the tea bags on your dark circles, their appearance will lessen. You can use green or black tea bags. First, steep them in hot water. Then remove the tea bags from the water, squeeze them out and then put them in the fridge to cool for fifteen minutes. Remove and place on your dark circles. This will help with any discoloration and puffiness.

Miss Teen Philippines Crowned
Nikki Advincula de Moura from Cagayan de Oro City was crowned 2019 Miss Teen Philippines. For her win, she was awarded P300,000, which is the equivalent of around $5,700 and a scholarship to flight attendant school.
Outgoing queen Nicole Villar held the title for an unusually long duration of five years. She was crowned Miss Teen Philippines in 2014 and went on to finish as first runner-up at Miss Teen International. The pageant was on a hiatus, resulting in her maintaining the crown for five years. A new team bought the rights for the pageant which resumed this year.
“I want to relinquish my title to someone who is confident, who is empowered and someone who can really talk about education, because that’s the main advocacy of the pageant,” Villar said prior to the contest.
Pelosi Receives Courage Award
Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi was awarded the 2019 John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award. She was selected for the award due to her work in passing President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law and for her assistance in helping Democrats regain a majority in the U.S. House. JFK's daughter, Caroline Kennedy said Pelosi is, "the most important woman in American political history."
Pelosi began in the House of Representatives in 1987. She is the first female to be Speaker of the House and is the highest-ranking elected female in American political history.
According to the JFK Library website, the award recognizes nominated public officials at the federal, state or local level "whose actions demonstrate the qualities of politically courageous leadership in the spirit of Profiles in Courage, President Kennedy's 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, which recounts the stories of eight U.S. senators who risked their careers by embracing unpopular positions for the greater good."
British Citizens Banned From Parts of Syria
British citizens will banned from entering or remaining in certain regions in Syria following a controversial new law, making it illegal to enter "designated areas" overseas.
The home secretary, Sajid Javid is expected to target Idlib in Syria’s northwest and the northeast. Both areas have seen combat in recent years, the west from rebel-led forces and the east from Islamic State militants. Those who break the law could face up to ten years in prison and a fine. The Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Act passed as a law last month.
“I’ve asked my officials to work closely with the police and intelligence agencies to urgently review the case for exercising this power in relation to Syria, with a particular focus on Idlib and the north-east. So anyone who is in these areas without a legitimate reason should be on notice," Javid said.
Citizens already in a designated area before it is announced will have one month to leave before it is considered an offense. There will also be exceptions for people who have a legitimate reason to be in a designated area, such as journalists.
Questions to Consider:
What would change about your reign if you had five years rather than one?
Who do you think is the most influential female politician today?
Should a country regulate which regions its citizens can visit?
