Coffee spritz to the face

Caffeine is showing up in skin preparations due to its tightening and antioxidant effects on the skin. The three ways caffeine affects our skin are as a vasoconstrictor, an antioxidant and a diuretic. Caffeine has been used for years in cellulite creams for it dehydrates fat cells, skin appears clear and smooth, and also reduces de-puffing around the eyes, tightens skin and reduces dark circles. The latest results from recent studies have shown that, when applied to the skin, caffeine may protect against sun damage to skin cells.
