Is Coffee Really Good for Your Skin
Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, energy as well as improves our metabolism on a regular intake. While our morning feels incomplete without a cup of coffee, the benefits of this household beverage goes much beyond. There are several benefits of applying coffee on the skin in some or other way. Most common way of including coffee in your daily skincare routine is to use it as a scrub along with sugar. So before we discuss the products with coffee, let us discuss about the benefits of using coffee for your skin.
Benefits of Coffee as an Ingredient in Skin Products.
Reduction in Cellulite
Coffee works wonder in reducing the appearance of cellulite on the skin as it is rich in the caffeine content. One of the major reasons on cellulite formation is the improper flow of overall blood. Caffeine on the other hand is known for enhancing the blood flow and therefore reducing the appearance of cellulite. Coffee scrub exfoliates the skin and makes it look younger and rejuvenated.
Reduces Under Eye Puffiness
If you are suffering from the issues such as inflamed or puffiness around the eyes, then caffeine is one of the most effective ways to reduce it. Coffee is a rich source of caffeine which helps in enhancing the blood flow in the vessel and therefore improve the skin condition. As the blood vessels relax and widen translating into the better flow of blood, the puffiness around the eyes starts reducing. In addition to the caffeine content, coffee is also rich in chlorogenic acids that helps in further reducing the inflammation around the eyes. Ground the coffee into a fine paste and then dab it around the eyes to reduce the inflammation.
Rich Source of Antioxidant
As aforementioned, coffee is one of the best sources of antioxidant and therefore taking it as a beverage as well as applying on the skin has its own benefits. Adding finely ground coffee in the face mask or using it in the form of scrub has its own unique benefits.
Protection Against Harmful Sun Rays
We all know how damaging the harmful sun rays like UVB could be for our skin. Well, there have been several research and studies done in the same field concluding that caffeine could be a potent solution against skin damaging and cancer causing rays from the sun. Certain studies also state that coffee slows down the damages done to the DNA therefore protecting the skin from the harmful rays.
