5 Potential Skincare Benefits of Coffee
Skincare comes in many forms. Maybe you’re a self-proclaimed beauty guru who does a 12-step skincare routine every night. Or perhaps you’re someone who doesn’t know the difference between serum and moisturizer. Whichever side of the spectrum you’re on, there’s one simple thing that can take your skin health to the next level. And guess what? It’s something you can find right in your kitchen! We’re talking about coffee. Of course, this is our all-time favorite ingredient here at Whipped Drinks. But you might also be surprised to learn that coffee may offer a variety of beauty benefits.
Are you curious as to how incorporating coffee into your skincare can help you achieve that gorgeous, healthy glow? If you’re ready to boost your beauty routine, keep reading below.
Coffee is generally used to awaken and energize yourself. However, when it’s placed on your skin rather than in your body, it may have the opposite effects. Why? Well, according to Healthline, coffee is an incredible source of antioxidants, which have a soothing effect on the skin when applied topically. You can reap the antioxidant benefits by creating your own face mask or body scrub at home, or you can search for coffee-infused skincare products!
Due to its grainy texture, coffee is an excellent exfoliator. Therefore, applying coffee directly to the skin can play a role in decreasing the appearance of fine lines, sun spots, and redness. In fact, some sources suggest that drinking coffee can also decrease aging that happens as a result of sun damage. That means your daily dose of Whipped Drinks is good for more than just the wonderful flavor and energy boost. 😉
The calming effects of the antioxidants, coffee can also help to reduce inflammation of the skin. The anti-inflammatory benefits may be a result of chlorogenic acid and melanoids that are also found in your daily cup of brew. In addition, these nutrients are thought to help reduce hyperpigmentation, which is darkened patches or spots on the skin.
Do you ever wake up and wonder if the darkness under your eyes is leftover makeup or just your skin? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Fortunately, something as simple as coffee might be the answer to treating your skin woes. How does it work? Some research suggests that the high caffeine content in coffee helps to dilate blood vessels, which often contribute to dark circles under the eyes. Apply a home made mask in the morning to brighten up your face for rest of the day!
Summer may be almost over, but the sun is still going strong in most places. If you spend a little too much time in the sun and find yourself drink or pink, coffee may be the remedy you need. The calming benefits can help relieve the skin burning and irritation, making for the ultimate post-sun treatment!
