Top 3 Caffeine Benefits in Skincare


Caffeine is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and circulatory stimulant, making it a powerful anti-aging ingredient. It’s used in products ranging from eye creams to moisturizers to SPFs.

Top 3 Caffeine Benefits in Skincare

Caffeine is a regular part of most people’s morning routines, “Ok, but first coffee.” However, caffeine is being found in another part of your morning routine more and more – your skincare products.

Caffeine is a powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and circulatory stimulant, making it a powerful anti-aging ingredient. It’s used in products ranging from eye creams to moisturizers to SPFs.

 

1. Caffeine fights free radical damage and premature aging
As an antioxidant, caffeine protects skin from free radicals. Think of your skin as an apple slice.

As the apple is exposed to the air, free radicals begin to oxidize the surface of the fruit, causing it to discolor and lose its original texture. The same thing happens to our skin (only much slower), causing premature signs of visible aging.

Antioxidants, such as caffeine, inhibit free radicals from damaging the skin, preventing discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles.

2. Caffeine enhances your sun protection
Just like how coffee gives you a boost in the morning, caffeine gives your SPF a boost. Antioxidants work to slow and repair UV damage, while traditional SPF ingredients like zinc oxide and octinoxate absorb or scatter UV rays before they enter your skin.

The combination is improved sun protection. Look for a broad spectrum SPF with caffeine to prevent sun damage, the #1 cause of premature aging.

3. Caffeine wakes up skin
Drinking caffeine increases energy and blood flow and so does applying it topically. When applied to the skin, caffeine stimulates circulation, increasing the overall perkiness of skin. Increased blood flow delivers much needed oxygen to skin, de-puffing and brightening tired looking skin. With benefits such as brighter skin and reduced fine lines and wrinkles, skincare products may become the new morning cup of Joe.
