There are variety of benefits when it comes to coffee, as it isn’t jus for your morning cup. List after list, coffee seems to be more than what we think it is — giving us betterment from health to hair. However, what deems to be more interesting is that it can improve skin as well.

According to sources, cosmetic companies are incorporating caffeine in their range of skincare products. Incorporating it in our skincare routine can give us toned and smooth skin.

Here are some of many skincare benefits from caffeine:

Soothes Inflammation

It possesses anti-inflammatory properties that make it effective in reducing inflammation and redness in your skin. It is often used as an ingredient in anti-inflammatory creams to enhance their effectiveness.

Treatment of Under Eye Dark Circles

While caffeine cannot cure hereditary dark circles, its anti-inflammatory properties make it beneficial in reducing puffiness and inflammation associated with dark circles. It also reduces the accumulation of blood under your eyes which contributes to dark shadows.

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.

Repairs UV Damage

It is considered a stronger antioxidant than the polyphenols contained in green tea. Studies have indicated that caffeine may also repair the skin damage caused by exposure to UV rays.

Tightens Skin

Another added benefit of caffeine is that 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.
