Is Caffeine Bad for Your Skin? A Look at Side Effects

Is Caffeine Bad for Your Skin? A Look at Side Effects

Caffeine in coffee is an interesting case study in scientific circles. When coffee is used as a skincare ingredient, the caffeine in coffee can have some positive impacts, including shrinking cellulite and enhancing the healthy glow of the skin. It’s one of the reasons that the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics made Coffea Arabica, an organic green coffee extract, the key ingredient in their entire line of skincare products. But is caffeine bad for your skin when you drink too much coffee?

In your morning mug o’ Joe, however, things can be a bit different if you overdo it. Here’s how caffeine can hurt your skin rather than benefit it if you’re not careful about your coffee consumption.

Is Caffeine Bad for Your Skin? A Look at Side Effects

#1 It’s a sleep disrupter

Though it doesn’t get as much attention as miracle skincare ingredients, few things are better for the skin than a good night’s sleep (they don’t call it “beauty sleep” for nothing!). And caffeine undoubtedly can keep you tossing and turning all night, which doesn’t help that cause in any way.

#2 It causes irritability and anxiety

Reducing stress and achieving calm are also important for the health of your skin, and there’s no better way to get jittery, nervous, and irritable than to down too much coffee. Keep the consumption at healthy levels to avoid these effects.

#3 It can dry you out

Caffeine is a diuretic, which means it naturally dehydrates you as you drink it. In moderation it can actually tone and tighten skin. Drink too much, however, and it can dry you out and lead to wrinkles, rough patches, and other problems. And it doesn’t only dehydrate your skin – it dehydrates your internal organs too, which is bad news bears.

#4 It constricts blood flow

Caffeine also has a mild constricting effect on blood vessels. Again, this isn’t a problem when coffee is consumed in small amounts (and when caffeine is included in skincare products, the results can be spectacular). But if you go overboard, it can disrupt the health blood flow that you need in order to keep your skin looking great.

TL;DR: is caffeine bad for your skin?

So is caffeine bad for your skin? Yes if you drink too much coffee, no if you use coffee skincare like the fab, carefully crafted products from Callyssee!
