Caffeine may be harmful to health but for skin, it’s a beauty booster. It smoothens your skin and makes even toned.

Caffeine has the power to remove dead skin cells and make skin free from dirt and dark spots. Sun, pollution, acne is the enemy for glowing skin and they leave us with their stubborn marks in the form of the suntan, dark spots, blackheads etc. It deeply exfoliates the skin pores and makes it nourished by providing necessary nutrients.

Another great benefit of caffeine is that it helps to remove cellulite on the skin. It dehydrates the fatty cells and in turn, water and fat disappear from the surface of the skin, thus minimizing the appearances of cellulite.

Coffee removes the free radicals from the skin with the help of effective antioxidant and makes reduces the wrinkles and fine lines. Regular application of body scrub can tighten your skin and brighten your skin. For this reason, caffeine is widely used in anti-aging creams in conjunction with retinol.
