CAFFEINE...THE ANTIOXIDANT POWERHOUSE:
There really are benefits when it comes to skincare and caffeine, but let me share a bit with you first about what it exactly is! Caffeine is actually a stimulant of the CNS or Central Nervous System and can be found in things like nuts, seeds, and leaves of South American and East Asian native plant species.
Examples include: kola nuts, leaves of the tea bush, and yaupon holly leaves. The most common and well-known source of caffeine comes from the coffee seed- which often and mistakenly called a "bean"! Caffeine can be extracted from the plant by utilizing infusion or steeping in water.
The beauty of this substance, is that it has the ability to lower your risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease, in addition to increase your alertness and attention :) I'm sure that by now however, you are wondering what exactly does caffeine to for your skin?...
SKIN BENEFITS OF CAFFEINE:
Want to reduce inflammation and under-eye puffiness?! Give caffeine a try! Once it penetrates your skin, it aids in blood vessel constriction that can also reduce redness too :)
As an antioxidant "defender", caffeine boosts your skin's fighting power against free radicals and increases skin protection against negative environmental factors!
Dehydrates fat cells = makes your skin appear smoother. Keep in mind though, that this effect will only be short-term :0
Looking to eliminate under-eye dark circles? Caffeine does the trick by restricting blood vessels and reducing their appearance and giving skin firmness!
