Beyond The Cup: Why You Should Be Using Caffeine In Your Beauty Regime

Nothing in the world has the ability to perk me up in the morning the way coffee magically does. Packed with all the best nutrients and antioxidants, caffeine has more to offer than just a warm wake up - it can also benefit your skin in a big way. From a natural exfoliator and blood stimulator to cellulite eliminator, more people are adding caffeine-based products into their beauty regime - and you should, too! To help you get started, I’ve rounded up the best caffeine products that are worth your skincare time!

Essence Spray

Revolution Beauty may be new to the skincare scene, but their Caffeine Essence Spray should not be missed! If you’re anything like me, then a little extra pick me up in the morning is a given, and this spray can do just that. Infused with citrus lemon oil and caffeine, your skin will be revived and nourished in a matter of seconds. Simply spray onto clean skin to instantly awaken and refresh your face. Better yet, store it in the fridge for an added cooling sensation!

Body Scrub

I can’t be the only one who has grabbed a handful of ground coffee and thought that it felt like a great exfoliator (just me?). Undoubtedly one of the best ways to exfoliate using a natural ingredient, coffee has the perfect texture for lifting away dead skin cells. If you want to smell delicious and have super soft skin, then I thoroughly suggest Sister & Co Coffee Body Scrub. High in caffeine, the coffee body scrub can stimulate your circulation and help to even out bumps and lumps as well as buffing away coarse and dry skin. It also contains a huge heap of antioxidants like raw cacao butter, pumpkin seed oil, coconut oil and sweet almond oil to give your body a well needed renourishing lift too! Just don’t lick your arm in the hope that it'll taste like a freshly brewed cup of coffee because, spoiler alert, it doesn't (I definitely did not do this).

Facial Serum

Caffeine isn’t only great at waking your brain up in the morning, but it can also revive your skin. The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG can help reduce the look of dark circles after just one use! If you're a dedicated night owl like me, you'll love how this Solution is perfect at masking your late nights by making your skin look as fresh as someone who's had the recommended 8 hours' sleep. Thanks to the perfect mixture of caffeine and EGCG, the serum not only reduces discoloration, but it can also calm and soothe the puffiness under your eyes - which is seriously a blessing in disguise!

Face Wipes

Matcha Green Tea infused Wake Up Face Wipes are a game changer when it comes to brightening and energizing your face. I must admit, I’m not a huge fan of drinking Matcha Green Tea, but it's an absolute essential in my skincare regime! Thanks to the hydrating and refreshing properties in Matcha green tea, these face wipes can not only cleanse and calm your skin, but they’re also great at unclogging your pores for a brighter, tighter complexion.

Firming Body Patch

Another reason why you should be adding caffeine-based products to your beauty regime is the fact that their action-packed properties can help make your skin firmer. This is great for those of you wanting to reduce the appearance of cellulite and fine lines on your body. Oh K! Caffeine Firming Targeting Patch is a great way to apply caffeine straight to the areas you wish to tighten. The gel masks will stick to any part of your body, whether it’s your thighs, sides, calves or arms and you can wear them comfortably and discreetly under your clothes all day!

Caffeine-Infused Shampoo

You may not know this, but caffeine helps blood stimulation and, when applied to your scalp,? can encourage your hair to grow. ?Alpecin Caffeine Shampoo C1 delivers activating ingredients straight to your hair follicles, strengthening them from top to bottom! As someone who has some serious brittle ends, I find massaging this into my hair has not only left me with super shiny locks but also prompted my hair to heal and grow. So if you want products that can offer you a smoother, firmer and brighter appearance, then get your hands on these caffeine-based products - just don’t mistake them for actual drinking coffee, because that would be a disaster.
