With the weather starting to cool down and that cup of warm coffee looking more enticing than ever and with many of us drinking more coffee while spending extended time at home, we want to answer your questions about caffeine. 

One-minute people are praising caffeine for its skin benefits, the next it’s a complete no-no but what effect does caffeine really have on our skin? Should we really be worried about our morning pick-me-up? 

We break it down for you below.

Dehydration

Caffeine has been known to have a natural diuretic effect which can cause fluid loss and dehydration when consumed.

So, what does this mean for your skin?

Dehydrated cells are not able to absorb nutrients easily and besides leading to dry skin, dehydration can also increase skin inflammation and a loss in collagen.

Not something you want to hear for ageing skin which relies on collagen to maintain its elasticity and prevent the formation of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging in the skin.

 

Inflammation and Breakouts

Having numerous cups of coffee or other caffeinated beverages in a day can also cause acne and breakouts. How?

The high dosage of acidity in caffeine in a regular cup of coffee triggers a stress response in the body, causing the release of a high amount of stress hormones.

These stress hormones can also mess up normal blood sugar levels by increasing the amount of insulin in the body. The high levels of insulin then cause inflammation in the body and the overproduction of oil on the skin which can clog pores and result in breakouts.

If you’re already struggling with acne, caffeine can also make pre-existing acne even redder and swollen.

Overall, consuming too much caffeine does not bode well for clear skin. Next time reach for a warm drink with less caffeine than the normal coffee and black tea. Green tea is a great option that gives you a little kick minus the negatives. 

 

Does Caffeine Have Any Benefits For The Skin?

Although caffeine might have some negative effects when consumed, when applied topically caffeine can have some significant benefits for your skin. We aren't talking about rubbing coffee or tea directly onto your skin. 

In fact, because caffeine contains antioxidants, it’s used in a number of anti-ageing products as a way to perk up your complexion, improve circulation and even protect against free radicals.

Caffeine in skincare products can also help improve tightness and improve skin texture which is ideal for skin with fine lines and wrinkles.

 

Is Caffeine Bad For Your Skin?

Everything in moderation is the key to caffeine. 

Caffeine, when ingested, can have negative effects on the skin in relation to dehydration, inflammation, and breakouts, however, when applied topically, it can be used as an ideal treatment for these concerns.

So, if you love your morning cuppa but don’t want to see the effects on your skin, remember it all comes down to everything in moderation.

If you can, switch up your caffeine from your diet to your skincare routine. Applied topically caffeine energises the skin to improve tightness and texture, promoting visibly smoother and lifted skin. Find in: Advanced SUPERLIFT Face Lifting & Toning Cream
