4 Skin Benefits of Turkish Coffee
Coffee has been a source of natural skin care for a while. Besides the benefit of allowing us an awaken mind and body, its caffeine, antioxidants, and texture can make your skin healthy, youthful, and blemish-free. All natural and handmade Turkish coffee can boost these benefits with its finely ground texture and nutrients. Here’s how:
- Caffeine in coffee can help reduce cellulites.
In a study made in 2015, caffeine has been proved to reduce cellulite and circumferences through penetration into the dermis (the layer of skin that lies beneath the epidermis). The blood vessels beneath the skin get dilated and improve overall blood flow that helps reducing the appearance of cellulite.
- Coffee’s Antioxidants fight against skin aging.
According to Joe Vinson, Ph.D. at University of Scranton (Pa.), Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source, whether it’s caffeinated or decaf. In addition of lowering the risk of heart disease and cancer, antioxidants fight free radicals in skin that causes the cell damage and aging.
- Coffee may help reducing skin cancer risk.
Niacin, a.k.a. vitamin B3, is abundant in coffee. Niacin may be helpful in fighting nonmelanoma skin cancers and other skin growths, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
- Got acne? Apply coffee.
Chlorogenic acid (CGA) and melanoidins in coffee may reduce hyperpigmentation and inflammation in the skin. Applying coffee on the skin could help fighting the bacteria and skin infections. With ground coffee’s natural exfoliating effect, all of these benefits can help making the acne skin clear and healthy.
