Like anyone else, I look forward to that first cup of coffee in the morning. It wakes me up and keeps me energized for majority of the day. Aside from keeping your brain sharp, caffeine, when added to beauty products, offers other benefits. These include making skin feel fresh and even reducing inflammation.
Looking to add more caffeine into your daily routine? Try some of the products listed below.
This body cream is enhanced with Ethiopian green coffee, which helps skin feel firmer and smoother. The coffee is hand-harvested from what is known as the “home of coffee,” the Kaffa region. The silky cream melts into the skin when massaged and this product is 100 percent vegan. Available at Greenbelt 4.
The under eye area can be problematic for most people and this eye cream from Kiehl’s can help combat those problems. Copper PCA and Calcium PCA are minerals that stabilize collagen and promote the elasticity of the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. On the other hand, the caffeine in this product reduces the appearance of puffiness under the eyes. Available at Greenbelt 5.
If you have sparse brows and want to achieve the look of fuller ones, try the Brow Magic Brow Boost from Eyeko. It contains vitamin E and B, which promotes growth and contains caffeine that stimulates regrowth of the eyebrows. Pick from three of their buildable shades: light to medium, medium to dark, and dark. Available on Sephora.ph
If you’re always on the go or an avid traveler, make sure to have these wake up wipes in your bag. Superfood matcha green tea removes dirt, excess oil, and makeup. It also has vitamin C that brightens the skin and aloe vera to soothe. Caffeine makes skin feel energized and refreshed. Available on Sephora.ph
