As varied as people come, some love the nightlife whilst some are the early risers. For whatever class and gender you fall into, your routine could adversely affect your precious facial features over time. Coffee, an excellent beverage, popularly known for its ability to kick-start a tired body, could also conceal a tired looking face giving it a pep for that photo shoot looks after a late night out. Get a sharper facial glow, brighter complexion and no bags under your eyes, with just a teaspoon full of coffee. It’s also helpful for men after shaving.
Spreading warm, wet coffee granules across the face, soaking in the sludge for 30 seconds and rinsing with warm water can briefly banish baggy under eyes. Coffee’s caffeine temporarily tightens skin while its antioxidants battle signs of ageing to reveal firmer skin.
Credit tighter skin to coffee’s dose of caffeine, which contains anti-inflammatory properties. The stimulant acts as a vasoconstrictor that deflates blood vessels to reduce swelling, redness and puffiness. The energy-jolting ingredient is also a diuretic, which draws liquid.
The face-firming results are not permanent; caffeine-induced dehydration only temporarily shrinks fat cells. Java’s antioxidants can help fight free radicals and tighten skin by reducing fine lines and bagginess. Whether you drink it or use the grounds in their raw form, be sure not to go overboard — dousing your skin with caffeine can cause dehydration and the adverse effects of dryness is wrinkles.
