Is Caffeine Good or Bad for Your Skin?

Is Caffeine Good or Bad for Your Skin?

What is Caffeine?

Found in both coffee and tea, caffeine is a naturally occurring compound that has wide-ranging effects in skin care. The same way that a cup of coffee will wake you up in the morning, caffeine helps your skin look more awake.


Benefits of Caffeine

  1. One of the major benefits of Caffeine is that it is an antioxidant that helps prevent UV radiation damage. Because of this, Caffeine is regarded as a powerful anti-aging ingredient.
  2. Caffeine also increases circulation. If you have puffiness, especially under the eyes, the increased circulation helps carry excess water away, leaving skin looking tighter and firmer.
  3. Used topically, caffeine constricts blood vessels. For people with broken blood vessels or spider veins, products with Caffeine can help reduce redness.

Dermatological Tips

  1. Use products with Caffeine both morning and evening to reduce puffiness, redness and discoloration—especially in the undereye area, which is most prone to these concerns.
  2. Caffeine isn’t only for the under eyes! Use it prior to sun exposure to prevent UV damage.

    Other Ingredients to Consider

    For better protection against sun damage, botanical extracts like aloe, apricot extracts and citrus extracts can offer some antioxidant activity, but the antioxidants in Caffeine are more potent.
