Wisdom Wednesday....Did you know?

What is Caffeine?

Caffeine is basically a bitter white crystalline alkaloid. It is a stimulant drug that is found in varying amounts in the seeds, leaves and fruits of some plants.

Caffeine is increasingly being used in skincare. Besides boosting your mood, it can improve your skin as well. Cosmetic companies are incorporating caffeine in their range of skincare products. Incorporating caffeine in your skincare routine can provide you with an even toned and smooth skin. How can caffeine help your skin?1.  It can ward off free radicals.  Free radicals are responsible for premature aging of your skin.  Wrinkles, sun spots and loss of elasticity are all signs that free radicals have had a damaging effect on your skin.  Caffeine contains antioxidants that can free your skin of these harmful free radicals.2. Caffeine possesses anti-inflammatory properties that make it effective in reducing inflammation and redness in your skin. Using caffeine in skincare products can reduce and prevent inflammation and redness and give you beautiful, even skin tone.3. Another added benefit of caffeine is that its topical use can tighten fine lines and smooth puffy skin. Caffeine used in creams is absorbed by your skin to firm and tighten its appearance. 
4. Caffeine's anti-inflammatory properties make it beneficial in reducing puffiness and inflammation associated with dark circles under your eyes.  It can also reduce the accumulation of blood under your eyes which contributes to dark shadows.
5. Caffeine present in skin care products can dehydrate fatty cells. This results in the water disappearing from the surface of your skin. This minimizes the appearance of cellulite, thus providing you with a smoother skin.
