3 Reasons to Increase your (Skin and Hair’s) Caffeine Consumption

Sure, cutting back on coffee is a noble dietary decision, but when it comes to the health of your hair and skin, you might consider products with a caffeine boost. The jolt you get from a mug of morning joe? Caffeine can do the same thing for your grooming routine as an ingredient in lotions and shampoos. Here are three reasons to make sure your regimen comes with a kick.

It Can Help Fight Hair Loss

Caffeine can stimulate cellular regeneration and circulation, which helps deliver essential nutrients to both the skin and hair. Caffeinated shampoos like Davines Naturaltech Energizing Shampoo can actually improve your hair’s “metabolism,” so to speak, and increase the likelihood that precious hairs grow strong and stay put.

It Boosts Blood Flow

Caffeine is a common ingredient in many under eye creams because it can reduce puffiness, tighten blood vessels, and firm the skin. By the same logic, it’s also found in products designed to tighten skin affected by cellulite. Caffeine's circulation-boosting properties are most potent when paired with an exfoliant—like the espresso grounds in Maak Lab's Coffee Bar.

It Reduces Wrinkles and Sunspots

At the heart of the coffee plant is the coffee berry, which is rich in antioxidants. Used in face creams and body lotions, the ingredient can work to counter the signs of aging wrought by free-radicals. These products lead to smoother, younger-looking skin.
