Caffeine in skincare?DSC_0778

We all know caffeine for its ability to revive, refresh and to wake us up in the morning. But did you know this magical ingredient is also making waves in the beauty world? Caffeine is not just a morning ritual, but also an important part to your everyday beauty regime.

When applied topically to the skin, caffeine is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radical damage and is believed to have a wide range of other benefits. Powerful antioxidants are essential for healthy skin. Studies on the effects of caffeine to the skin have concluded cells that are damaged by UV radiation are completely wiped out. Whilst leaving the healthy cells untouched. This reversal of cell damage is said to reduce wrinkles and even the skin tone.

Caffeine is also famous for its anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it is so effective especially when used in eye treatments. It fights to reduce dark circles and puffiness around the eye area by inhibiting the inflammatory response that causes those pesky under eye burdens.

I wouldn’t run out into the kitchen and dunk your head into a pot of coffee just yet. But I would suggest next time you are on the hunt for quality skincare, to keep an eye out for caffeine!

My favourite caffeine fix: Trilogy CoQ10 Eye Recovery Concentrate <3
