Most of us can barely manage to get through the day without a dose caffeine, but did you know that it’s just as effective on your skin as it is as your morning pick-me-up. Although you won’t be finding an blonde roasted beans inside your skincare bottle any time soon, you might be getting more familiar with finding caffeine on the ingredients list. You’ll find it inside our all-new Skincare By BEAUTY BAY Hydrating Eye Treatment with Caffeine and Peptides, a moisturising eye cream that’ll banish tired eyes for good.
To find out more about why you need caffeine in your skincare and not just your coffee cup, then keep on reading.
Brightens tired eyes
Caffeine works by boosting circulation, which in turn brings more blood to the surface of the skin, making it appear brighter and more glowy. Fake a good night’s sleep in seconds.
Get rid of the extra baggage
If puffiness and dark circles are a regular occurrence for you, then you’ll be glad to know that caffeine constricts blood vessels, which then reduces swelling and discolouration, getting rid of any under eye baggage.
Sinks straight into the skin
Normally, caffeine isn’t very soluble in water, meaning it can be difficult to include in skincare products to then infuse the skin. The BioGenic caffeine in our Hydrating Eye Treatment is much more soluble in water, meaning that you and your skin will see results.
Caffeine contains antioxidants, which protects your skin against damaging free radicals and external aggressors that can cause stress on the skin – not what you need.
Amino acids can be found in caffeine and they help to stimulate collagen and elastin production, reducing wrinkles and signs of aging.
