Coffee, a drink that can either make or break some of our mornings. Personally, I drink coffee 3-4 times a week, so I look at it as a nice addition to my day. Some of the reasons why I have been so skeptical about making it a part of my normal routine is because I’ve always heard that coffee can cause breakouts. This led me on a journey to see how factual this information really was. While coffee has a few downsides, there are even more benefits of coffee for your skin. Coffee is filled with caffeine and that is the main component that houses the awesome aids that will help you glow. I’ve listed a few benefits below, so be sure to grab your favorite mug and pour up while you read.
Benefits of Coffee
#1 Soothes Inflammation
Caffeine possesses anti-inflammatory properties that make it useful in reducing inflammation and redness in your skin.
#2 Repairs UV Ray Damage
Studies have shown that caffeine may also repair the skin damage caused by exposure to UV rays thanks to the antioxidant found in it.
#3 Reduces Puffy Eyes
When applied topically, coffee can help reduce under-eye puffiness by restricting blood flow to the area and reducing swelling.
#4 Brightens Your Skin
Just like coffee wakes you up in the morning, it does the same for your skin when applied as a mask. Check out cool coffee face mask ideas below.
