We’ve mentioned the benefits of coffee and caffeine but did you know that caffeine is actually an ingredient in an increasing number of skin care and beauty products? Caffeine is a common ingredient in many eye care products, as it can help reduce puffiness, tighten the appearance of skin, and even reduce the appearance of dark circles in this delicate area. Caffeine is a popular ingredient because it is a natural anti-inflammatory, and because it can help lessen the appearance of dark circles or redness in the skin.
Here are a few references to some of the latest skin savers that have caffeine as a core ingredient:
100 % Pure’s Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream
This aptly named eye cream uses caffeine to help de-puff the eye area and diminish dark circles, and even claims to help users “look more refreshed and awake.”
Origins GinZing Energy Moisturiser
Beauty editors recommend this stimulating moisturizer in the dry winter months, as it helps boost hydration levels. Ingredients such as Panax ginseng and caffeine help to kick-start the skin, just like coffee does!
MAC Cosmetics Fast Response Eye Cream
MAC dubs this little tube a “super-charged, caffeinated cream with instant effects.” We’ll take that along with our Organo Gold pre-brewed coffee!
Clinique All About Eyes Serum
Clinique’s massaging roller ball uses caffeine to help invigorate and revitalize the eye area.
