Coffee Anyone?

Did you know that coffee has major skin benefits? A few of which are listed below:

Antioxidants: Coffee contains antioxidants such as chlorogenic acid and melanoidins, which can protect the skin from free radical damage.

Anti-inflammatory: Some coffee compounds, such as caffeine, may be anti-inflammatory. This can help reduce skin redness, swelling, and inflammation.

Collagen production: The caffeic acid in coffee grounds can boost collagen production, which can give your skin a fresh glow.

Prevents skin cancer: Coffee is a rich source of vitamin B3 (niacin), which may help prevent some forms of skin cancer.

Reduces dark circles: Coffee can boost circulation and tighten the skin around your eyes.
