Nothing compares to a nice cup of coffee in the morning! It gives us the energy to make it through the busy and tiring day that lies ahead of us.
However, did you know that this magical ingredient is also great for your skin? Read on to find out how coffee can help you get gorgeous and youthful skin!
1. May help in treating skin cancer
Upon roasting coffee beans, the compound Trigonelline breaks down into niacin or vitamin B3. Studies have shown that vitamin B3 exhibits healing effects on nonmelanoma skin cancer. It also aids in preventing other skin growths.
Moreover, vitamin B3 also helps in retaining moisture and preventing skin flakes.
2. It Can aid in reducing cellulite
Coffee is packed with antioxidants that can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Other than being an excellent source of free-radical fighting antioxidants, this ingredient also helps in soothing and tightening the skin.
3. Acts as an anti-aging ingredient
