'Thanks to its antioxidants, which include phenols that help fight free radicals that can lead to skin damage. In fact, the American Chemical Society has found that coffee is the most popular source of antioxidants in the United States — even more so than other antioxidant-rich beverages, such as tea and wine. While a cup of coffee can provide antioxidants internally, the purported skin benefits from coffee are primarily obtained topically. Coffee may help reduce the appearance of cellulite on the skin. It’s thought that the caffeine content in coffee is the key to cellulite reduction by dilating blood vessels beneath the skin and improving overall blood flow. In turn, this may help decrease the appearance of cellulite. This skincare method is thought to best be used via a coffee scrub because the exfoliation can also smooth your skin and provide an even appearance. Anti-aging benefits: Applying coffee directly to your skin may help decrease the appearance of sun spots, redness, and fine lines. Coffee is a rich source of vitamin B3 (niacin), thanks to a breakdown of a key compound called trigonelline. However, trigonelline breaks down into niacin after coffee beans have been roasted. Niacin may be helpful in preventing non melanoma skin cancers and can possibly prevent other skin growths. Anti-inflammatory effects may be attributed to chlorogenic acid (CGA) as well as melanoidins in coffee. CGA is also linked to reducing hyper-pigmentation that may have a connection with inflammation. In the case of a wound or frequent skin infections, the regular use of coffee could help combat problems from harmful bacteria. The CGAs in coffee have both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Combined with the natural exfoliation of coffee grounds, all these benefits can collectively fight acne. Dark circles: Coffee may also help treat stubborn dark circles under the eyes.'
