  • Reduces Cellulite

Caffeine present in skin care products can dehydrate fatty cells. This results in the water disappearing from the surface of your skin. This minimizes the appearance of cellulite, thus providing you with a smoother skin.

Research at the University of Sao Paulo has proven that the application of skin cream containing caffeine reduced the size of cellulite fat cells by 17%. A number of anti-cellulite creams are available that can decrease the appearance of cellulite. Another way to use caffeine is to add ground or instant coffee to regular body scrub at home.

 

  • Tightens Skin

If you’re looking to get an instant face lift without a needle in sight, try using a coffee scrub on your face in the morning,  its topical use can tighten fine lines and smooth puffy skin. Caffeine used in creams is absorbed by your skin to firm and tighten its appearance. It also inhibits the growth of skin cancer cells. Beauty products often include caffeine as it can provide you with a flawless appearance. The diuretic properties will help temporarily dehydrate your fat cells (just like it does for your cellulite) and constrict your blood vessels, making for an overall tighter appearance around your face.

  •  Fights Aging

Free radicals oxidize healthy cells in our bodies, causing potentially dangerous chain reactions of unstable cells in our bodies. These unstable chain reactions are thought to be a cause of premature aging and sun spots.

Antioxidants are free radical-fighting compounds that are found both in our body and in certain natural substances like, you guessed it, coffee beans. It’s true; coffee beans are free radical fighting powerhouses and can help keep your skin stay looking young, fresh and undamaged.

  • Calms

Antioxidants are at work once again! If you suffer from inflamed, sensitive or uneven skin tone, a coffee scrub can help calm your skin, with the antioxidants working to keep it balanced and healthy.

Just as coffee’s antioxidant properties can help combat fine lines and wrinkles, so too can it help repair sun damage. Whether it’s sun spots, freckles or hyperpigmentation, a coffee scrub can help foster new cell turnover and rid your skin of those unsightly spots.

  • It’s a rich source of antioxidants

The environment is full of free radicals (pollution particles, etc.) that wreak havoc on the skin. However, loading up skin with the antioxidants in coffee protects it and bolsters its natural defences. In fact, a study showed that coffee bean extracts can be responsible for skin cell energy preservation due to its free-radical properties.”

  • It protects against harsh sun rays

UVB is harmful and may even lead to more complicated and life-threatening skin diseases. Protecting your skin with caffeine may protect it against UV carcinogens. According to another study, caffeine actually inhibits the DNA damage response, thus protecting skin against the adverse effects of UVB.

  • Treatment Of Rosaceae

Caffeine constricts blood vessels to reduce redness. This makes it an ideal treatment for facial flushing and rosacea. When applied topically, caffeine works as a diuretic, aids in circulation and is also a powerful antioxidant.
