For some, a morning cup of coffee is the only way to start the day. Caffeine is found in coffees, teas, sodas, and energy drinks all for the same purpose – to give us a boost throughout our day. When we consume caffeine, it opens the blood vessels, allowing blood to flow at a slightly faster rate helping us feel more alert and active.
Caffeine can also be absorbed through the skin, which is why it’s become a popular and effective ingredient in cosmetic skin creams. Studies have shown that caffeine applied topically activates microcirculation of the blood and is a natural anti-inflammatory, which helps reduce puffiness and helps increase lipolysis.
Caffeine can also naturally protect skin cells from UV radiation, and it helps in slowing the natural process of photoaging, which occurs when our skin is overexposed to the sun’s harmful rays.
We’ve seen the results first hand in our REFOCUS Under Eye Treatment where we infuse ingredients like caffeine, plant extracts, amino acids, and copper peptides to make a powerful serum with lasting results.
