Good morning coffee- the first “cuppa” of the day is THE greatest way to kick-start your day! On the other hand, a lot has been said about the ill effects of caffeine. Enough to push many of you to quit drinking it altogether.
But, did you know that your daily cup of black has beauty stirred in! To give you news fresh from the pot, coffee in regulated amounts can actually be great for your skin.
Coffee = Antioxidants = Anti-aging
Consider this. Your morning Joe is your first fight of the day against those skin aging, skin drying, luster robbing, free radicals that are extremely harmful for your skin. Coffee is your first dose of antioxidants for the day! Coffee also contains essential Vitamins like B1, B2, B3, B5, and Minerals like Potassium and Manganese, that are essential for our body. Studies have shown that black coffee can lower your risk of contracting skin cancer. Hurrah for your age fighter!
Free yourself of that excess “eye” baggage!
Coffee is a known vaso-dilator. Essentially, it helps in relaxing the blood vessels making flow of blood easier. But what does it do for your skin? Have you noticed how those dark circles under your eyes look less prominent after your morning coffee. Coffee is a diuretic and helps in reducing the size of the blood vessels and water built-up around the eye area, thus reducing puffiness and under-eye bags.
Acne, redness, and inflammation – gone!
When you get acne, the sebum producing glands of the skin and the hair follicle get slightly inflamed. Caffeine, present in coffee is known to reduce inflammation and redness of the skin. It is a known ingredient in many facial and eye creams, especially, creams formulated for those who suffer from rosacea and redness due to inflammation of the skin. Caffeine also helps in brightening, tightening, and toning the skin.
Caffeine, the unsung hero, has surely been doing more for your skin than you thought it did. Its time to clear the “villainous” tag we have so often attributed to our morning cup o’ Joe. Your espresso might actually help you in getting healthier, clearer skin.
Wake up, smell the coffee, and look beautiful!
