As skincare and beauty researchers, the professionals at Callyssee Cosmetics spend a lot more time focused on coffee as an ingredient in their skincare products than for its general use — which is of course helping you wake up in the morning as America’s beverage of choice. But as it turns out, the coffee you drink can also have an impact on your skin, your face and other aspects of your beauty regime.
And while moderate amounts of coffee seem to be good for general health, from your heart to your weight, the information you get on how coffee impacts beauty is decidedly mixed. To get to the bottom of what drinking coffee does for you, we dug into the research on the topic a little bit. Here’s what we found.
4 Ways in Whick Drinking Coffee Affects Your Beauty Regime
#1 It’s good in moderation
Coffee is a diuretic, which means it naturally dehydrates you as you drink it. This may sound like a bad thing, but in moderation it can actually tone and tighten skin. Drink too much, however, and it can dry you out.
#2 It’s better black
Like in most parts of your diet, copious amount of sugar and cream are just not good for your skin. They can lead to acne, clogged pores and other problems. So black coffee or going light on the add-ins is the way to go.
#3 It can perk you up
The caffeine in coffee can wake you up in the morning, but it does more than wake up your mind. It can renew and refresh you to give you a healthy, radiant glow as you go about your day.
#4 If you keep it reasonable, it does more good than harm
Coffee is rich in antioxidants and caffeine, which both help the skin in many ways. And studies indicate the moderate coffee drinking can ward off harmful skin problems like melanoma. As with most things in life, a moderate amount is good for you.
