Coffee may be on most people’s daily to-do list as a routine start to the day. However, most people don’t know the benefits that caffeine can have when used in your skincare regimen. Caffeine, when applied to the skin, leaves you feeling tighter, brighter, and younger.
Increased Circulation + Blood Flow: Caffeine improves your overall blood flow and circulation to help stimulate the flow of nutrients to your skin tissue. This leads to a decrease in cellulite and a brighter, more vibrant skin tone. Good circulation is particularly important for the skin around your eyes to prevent dark circles. Also, caffeine can help exfoliate and smooth the skin, leading to a more even skin tone.
Anti-Aging + Damage-Correcting Benefits: Caffeine helps to fight skin damage like sunspots, redness and fine lines. The antioxidants found in caffeine correct damage from UV rays. Antioxidants fight free radicals, which can be harmful electric when accumulated in skin. Free radicals can cause wrinkles, a loss of elasticity and a decrease in healthy vibrance. One study found a direct correlation between consuming caffeine and a decrease in photo-aging effects.
- Reduced Inflammation: Caffeine is essential for reducing redness and swelling of the skin, creating an anti-inflammatory effect. The ingredient does so by helping to flush out toxins. This reduction in inflammation leads to tighter-looking, brighter-feeling skin.
