Waking up to the intoxicating aroma of brewing coffee beans, caffeine is the eye-opener of choice by millions of people around the globe. And while a good, hot cup of joe reduces fatigue and opens your eyes for the day ahead, did you know that that same cup of joe contains potent anti-inflammatory properties that are perfect for reducing inflammation and redness in your skin. Scientific studies revealed that caffeine reduces inflammation almost at the same level as aspirin does. Skin care products containing caffeine both reduce and prevent inflammation and redness thereby increasing the vitality of your skin tone. And you thought caffeine was just for drinking in your cup of coffee?
In a recent study performed at Rutgers University, the theory that caffeine guards against certain molecular level skin cancers was strengthened as literally inhibits ATR, a protein enzyme in the skin. Additionally, scientists believe based on their research, that when caffeine is applied directly to the skin, this may help block cancer causing ultraviolet light from penetrating the skin.
Caffeine also works wonders for dark under-eye circles. Although caffeine is not a miracle worker, applying it under your eyes will diminish puffiness and inflammation typically associated with dark circles as well as flattening out those under-eye bags. It also reduces the look of dark shadows under your eyes because caffeine reduces the build-up of blood which aid in promoting those circles.
Is cellulite a thing of the past? A scientific study revealed that an application of skin cream containing caffeine to cellulite reduced the size of the cellulite fat cells by 17 percent.
