Did you know that March is National Caffeine Appreciation month?
When we first heard this we had a bit of a laugh. We don’t need a whole month to appreciate our morning cups of coffee.
In fact, most of us are zombies without it.
Then? We learned there are even more things to love about caffeine. Turns out that caffeine is awesome for our skin!
Whether it imparts anti-oxidants or reduces inflammation, caffeine may be waking up more than just your brain.
Over the past decade, scientists have concluded that caffeine carries enormous antioxidant benefits. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition performed a study that found a serving of coffee held more antioxidants than a serving of several fruits, including oranges and blueberries. In fact, coffee (and the caffeine it contains) may be the most widespread source of antioxidant intake for the average American.
So go on! Raise that cup of joe and enjoy!
Just remember. That morning cup of coffee is still no substitute for following through with the rest of your skin care regimen. Keep cleansing, moisturizing, and pampering your skin for the absolute best results.
