Everyday, 62% of Americans turn to coffee to give them the morning pick-me-up so many of us need, but did you know that coffee could be the solution you’ve been looking for to cure your dull skin? Coffee is full of antioxidants that help to protect, nourish, and heal your skin from sun damage and free radical damage. We’re going to break down five ways this skincare ingredient can bring life back to your skin.
Decreases The Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age or spend exorbitant amounts of time in the sun, our skin develops sun spots, fine lines, and redness. Coffee has been proven to help combat the side effects of sun damage and leave your skin looking and feeling renewed, glowy, and healthy.
The CGAs, or Chlorogenic Acid, in coffee has been shown to have antibacterial and antiinflammatory effects on the skin. Acne occurs when excess sebum, or oils, and dead skin cells clog pores. When bacteria seeps into these clogged pores, it causes the skin to become inflamed, resulting in more breakouts. Coffee works by gently exfoliating the skin and attacking the bacteria that could be causing your breakouts.
Calms the Skin
Coffee may be a stimulus, but it actually has calming effects when applied on the skin. Due to the antioxidants and nutrients found in this ingredient, it can help to relieve red, inflamed skin, and combat irritation.
Reduces Dark Circles
Stubborn dark circles not going away even after getting some shut-eye? The caffeine in coffee can dilate blood vessels, visibly reducing dark under eye circles. This superstar ingredient can also depuff your undereyes thanks to the soothing antioxidants found within it.
The Gentle Exfoliator
Coffee grounds are an extremely effective physical exfoliant, gently scrubbing away dead skin cells. Be sure to only use coffee scrubs once or twice a week, however, as you can over-exfoliate and strip your skin!We love our coffee, whether it’s in our favorite mug or in our skincare products.
