The Many Perks of Adding Coffee to Your Beauty Routine

Whether your preference is black, latte, espresso or even iced, coffee is our trusty go-to to fuel our mornings and get us through the day. (Especially during the chaos that is fashion week.) But that caffeine fix doesn’t just wake you up, it also has perks for your skin and scalp.

You’ve probably noticed coffee notes in your favorite perfumes, but it’s also being used in everything from soaps to shampoos to eye creams. That’s because it’s chock-full of antioxidants to protect skin from environmental aggressors and it triggers blood flow and promotes collagen production. And coffee grounds are well-known exfoliators perfect for giving a boost to skin.

When it comes to beauty, you definitely don’t want to favor decaffeinated. Caffeine has anti-inflammatory properties to help calm complexions and it lures out excess fluid from cells, allowing skin to tone and tighten.

Here are 11 coffee beauty products that will stimulate bright and bouncy skin.
