All coffee seems to have some benefit for the health of your skin. People first noticed these effects anecdotally when they incorporated coffee grounds into their homemade exfoliants. But in recent years, science has caught up to the folklore, and coffee has shown proven results in fighting wrinkles, repairing sun damage, and firming the skin, among other benefits. The effects of green coffee bean extract have become undeniable!
As the science has evolved and expanded, one form of coffee in particular has begun to shine through as a valuable skin care product, and that’s green coffee beans. These are the unroasted seeds of the breed of coffee known as Coffea Arabica. In fact, the evidence is so overwhelming that the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics developed an entire line of products around the ingredient. Here’s what the science has to say about Coffea Arabica.
Real Science Behind the Effects of Green Coffee Bean Extract
All coffee is rich in antioxidants, but green coffee beans trump the rest. They boast 10 times the antioxidant potential of green tea. And in studies, these antioxidants have been shown to repair wrinkles, protect the skin from sun damage, and produce many other positive results.
#2 Better Blood Flow
Due to caffeine and other ingredients, green coffee bean extract also improve blood circulation. This results in a healthy, glowing skin tone, and it has many other benefits for the body, including a reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Put this benefit to good use by exfoliating with coffee — especially wherever you might have cellulite to give those dimples a kick in the booty and get smoother skin all over 😉 We love drinking coffee and we love it even more when it helps solve our beauty concerns (and that it does!).
Just as coffee can raise your energy level and alertness, it appears to do the same for your skin. Using green coffee bean extract in skincare products seems to have a firming, toning effect that leaves the skin more youthful-looking.
Especially if you’ve had a rough night (or week — it happens!) and need to look awake for a meeting at work or wanna look fresh for a hot date, coffee can help you out here by primping up your under-eye area.
Callyssee has a fabulous under-eye mask that’s perfect for the job that you can try: Perk Up Your Eyes Caffeine Dermis Mask packing generous amounts of Coffea Arabica (Organic Green Coffee Extract) (our favorite, of course!), Green Tea Extract, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, and Hyaluronic Acid to plump up your skin and bring you back to gorgeous fast.
Of all the effects of green coffee bean extract, this one might surprise you the most. It’s because green coffee beans are rich in fatty acids that, when incorporated into skincare products, the fatty acids play a role in moisturizing the skin and keeping it supple and glowing. Of course, always stay well-hydrated for best results 😉
