Beauty Benefits of Coffee

Written By waleska agosto 01 Jan 2014
Coffee can help reduce sun Damage. While previous studies have reported that individuals who regularly drink coffee or tea are less likely to develop non-melanoma skin cancers, a new study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, suggests that topical application of caffeine minimizes or reverses the effects of UV damage on the skin.  Caffeine causes skin cells damaged by ultraviolet light to self-destruct by blocking a cellular pathway involved in regulating the cell cycle. For best results apply products immediately after sun exposure. Coffee can tighten skin Coffee contains high levels of caffeine which among many other things are vasoconstrictors. This shrinks capillaries making the skin look firmer and tighter and reducing dark circles. Look for products with caffeine or green coffee oil to get these benefits and always try to stay organic. Coffee can Reduce Cellulite Coffee dehydrates fat cells making them smaller and more importantly less noticeable. Adding exfoliates gets rid of dry skin cells making the skin softer and smoother. Coffee makes Dark Hair Shiny This do it yourself recipe will give your hair the antioxidant boost it needs to look amazing. Brew a strong cup of coffee, let cool then pour all over your hair over the sink or shower. Let it sit 15 minutes, then all you have to do is shampoo and style as usual.
