Coffee Bean

When added to skincare formulations, Caffeine is a natural skin energizer with instant results. The energy-boosting power of caffeine is something any coffee or tea drinker knows well. Whether it comes from a leaf or a bean, a mug of a caffeinated beverage in the morning is a great wake-up call. But, that’s not just for your brain — applying topical caffeine on skin can help revive a tired, dull complexion. Caffeine eye cream is one of the most effective de-puffing ingredients, and using caffeine for skin has an almost immediate effect on the skin.

What Is Caffeine?

Caffeine is an alkaloid known for its stimulating properties. It can be found most commonly in coffee, tea, and cocoa plants. It’s also been shown to have potent antioxidant properties and to help promote a healthy circulatory system.

What Does Caffeine Do For The Skin?

Everyone’s favorite morning (and, occasionally, afternoon) beverage has some serious benefits for your skin, especially when it comes to your eyes. Caffeine is a natural vasoconstrictor, meaning it narrows the blood vessels under the eye, helping to reduce a.m. puffiness. It also boosts sluggish circulation, stimulating those pooled blood vessels that cause dark circles to release, minimizing the shadows as they go.

Caffeine’s ability to boost circulation makes it a great addition to skincare products as it will revive tired complexions that may look dull. And, its antioxidant powers means it can help protect you from free radical damage caused by the sun and pollution.
