Caffeine is known to benefit the skin and is an essential ingredient in many skin products. But a cup of coffee can provide important trace elements internally and can affect your appearance in many surprising ways.
Most of us have thought about giving up coffee at some point in our lives. But it turns out your skin probably won’t thank you for cutting the coffee entirely.
We investigated how stopping caffeine can affect your skin.
6. You Might Get More Breakouts
Coffee has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that benefit the skin.
Drinking coffee regularly can help reduce inflammation that can cause facial acne, according to a study.
It can also reduce skin hyperpigmentation related to inflammation.
5. It Will Be Harder To Fight Cellulite
The antioxidants in coffee also help reduce the appearance of “orange peel”. Caffeine causes the blood vessels under the skin to dilate, which improves overall blood flow.
This, in turn, can decrease the appearance of cellulite.
4. You Might Experience More Pigmentation
A cup of coffee a day can help protect your skin from photoaging. Many trace elements in coffee, such as chlorogenic acids, help reduce the appearance of pigmented spots.
3. It May Be More Difficult To Fight Rosacea
Rosacea is a very common skin disease that affects more than 14 million people in the United States. They can look like tiny acne-like bumps that are actually tiny blood vessels under the surface of the skin.
Drinking several cups of coffee a day can prevent rosacea, according to research. Drinking just one or two cups a day can help protect your skin from rosacea.
2. It Will Be Harder To Get Rid Of Dark Circles
Coffee can also help you forget about those stubborn dark circles under your eyes. Caffeine affects the blood vessels that contribute to dark circles, making them less visible.
