When you think about caffeine, what comes to mind? Perhaps your go-to beverage to get you through those early mornings or last minute essay deadlines. If your daily caffeine intake is in the form of a hot or iced drink, prepare yourself, because it’s also making waves in the skincare community!
At Peace Out, we’re obsessed with the skin benefits of incorporating this buzzy ingredient into our AM routines (in addition to your morning coffee). Keep reading… we’re going to share with you some of the biggest reasons why you should stock up on caffeine skincare products!
Caffeine is a natural stimulant that’s been used for centuries. It’s popularly associated with coffee, tea, cocoa, and energy drinks. In addition to the added pep in your step, there are many different skin benefits as well.
Caffeine works by dilating the blood vessels and can be applied topically when incorporated into a serum, cream, scrub, etc. It can be used to reduce the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks as it helps improve overall blood flow, reducing uneven skin tones and textures often associated with cellulite or scarring.
As a natural ingredient, caffeine improves microcirculation and provides an anti-inflammatory effect on the skin. This helps create a firmer, smoother and brighter looking complexion.
Caffeine can also create a wrinkle-smoothing effect when used as a skincare ingredient. Thanks to the antioxidant properties found in caffeine, it can also help reduce the appearance of redness, sunspots, and fine lines on the face.
For anyone struggling with acne, caffeine has been known to be a great addition. Regular use of quality caffeine provides an antibacterial effect, which comes in handy when treating pimples and acne.
Among the benefits of caffeine are a reduction in dark circles and puffy eyes. As mentioned before, caffeine as an ingredient works by increasing microcirculation, increasing blood flow to those puffy and tired eye areas.
It’s important to remember that different types of skin will have different reactions to certain ingredients, so it’s always a good idea to slowly introduce a new product or ingredient into your skincare routine. Depending on your unique skin type, you’ll probably have different problem areas that you’ll want to address in your skincare routine.
Many of us have woken up early in the morning to puffy, uncomfortable eyes. A quick and convenient way to reduce dark circles and puffy, tired eyes in the morning is to apply a handy under eye patch infused with caffeine to help stimulate circulation, reduce inflammation and banish tired-looking eyes!
Alternatively, you could combine caffeine ingredients into your skincare routine by applying a luxurious serum or specialty eye cream or stick. These types of products are ideal for targeting specific skin concerns while being gentle and easy to apply! It’s best to apply caffeine products after you’ve cleansed and treated, but before applying your daily moisturizer.
