Ground Coffee (2 oz)
Coffee Is High in Antioxidants
Antioxidants help protect your skin from free radical damage, and coffee just happens to be packed with antioxidants. This is good news for your skin, as antioxidants help fight aging.
Some studies have shown that coffee (specifically coffee oil) has similar effects on the skin as the anti-aging skincare ingredient hyaluronic acid. Coffee seed oil can increase collagen and elastin, making the skin look and feel firmer.
Coffee can also help keep the skin hydrated by reducing transepidermal water loss, (a fancy way of saying the way moisture evaporates from the skin),
Several studies have shown spent coffee ground extract helps protect the skin against damage from UV-B rays. So, when included in skincare preparations, the coffee extract may help protect your skin against wrinkle formation and sun damage.
The caffeine in coffee can also improve the look of the skin, albeit temporarily. Caffeine constricts the skin, making it look firmer and tighter. This tightening effect can help fight puffy eyes and can make cellulite look less obvious.
