Coffee also helps to take good care of your skin:
A 2015 study published in the International Journal of Dermatology gives more credibility to the beneficial properties of coffee. According to the study, coffee is potent enough to allow the skin to tolerate the sun and prevent photoaging due to sun exposure, thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots.
In addition, polyphenols in coffee, including chlorogenic acids, may help reduce the hyperpigmentation that causes skin spots.
Another 2007 study published in Dermatologic Therapy found that topical application of coffee cream to the face resulted in statistically significant improvements in fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and overall skin appearance.
In addition, another study published in 2016 in Photochemical and Photobiological Sciences found that topical treatment with an oil/ethanol fraction of ground coffee (OSCG / ESCG) protects the skin from UVB-induced photoaging; therefore, suggesting the potential of ground coffee extracts as a topical anti-aging agent.
In addition, a 2011 study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science shed new light on another property of coffee, its efficacy as a slimming agent. The study found that cosmetic products containing caffeine significantly reduced the circumference of the abdomen, hips, buttocks, and waist, also reduced the appearance of cellulite, and thus improved tone.
