Coffee for Skin Care
Recently, cosmetic manufacturers started putting coffee extract in many of their formulas. And for good reason!
Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants that protects our skin against free radicals that damage and age us. The caffeine in coffee stimulates the skin and improves blood flow to the face, which is perfect for healthy cell turnover that makes us look radiant and bright.
Another really cool benefit of coffee applied to the skin is that it increases the production of collagen and elastin. The caffeine in coffee minimizes fine lines and protects against the loss of moisture, making it the ideal choice for anti-aging.
And if you have sun burned or sun damaged skin, you’ll be really happy to know that coffee helps reverse the damage of UV rays! So definitely make sure to slather this on if you happen to get too much sun or if you have sun damaged skin. It will help restore your skin from damage!
