If you’ve spent time walking the beauty care aisles over the past couple of years, you may have noticed caffeine is becoming a very popular ingredient. But why is there caffeine in moisturizers?
Caffeine in moisturizers is becoming more common as the creators of various skincare lines realize what caffeine can do.
So here’s the deal with caffeine in moisturizers…
It makes redness and dark circles less noticeable.
Thanks to the constrictive properties of caffeine, moisturizers with caffeine help reduce redness on the skin on those areas where people most often apply moisturizers.
It makes skin less puffy.
Caffeine can be a diuretic. This means that it can pull toxins and extra fluid from the skin and fat cells, giving a smoother, less puffed appearance. Also, it is known to increase circulation in areas where caffeine-containing products are applied.
It can provide a sunscreen of sorts.
The antioxidants in caffeine help to protect against sun damage and may play a role in preventing some forms of skin cancer. That’s not to say applying a moisturizer that has caffeine in it one time a day is sufficient if you spend most of your day outside, but every little bit helps, right? Always supplement with a sunscreen product meant for the face.
There are some risks to caffeine consumption, particularly if you are sensitive to it. If you use caffeine containing skincare products, it is important to understand this will add to your overall intake.
