Yup - our energy boosting ingredient is well on its way to becoming THE beauty product for 2015. It has already been incorporated into a good number of hair and skin products.
Now, natural beauty gurus know this is old news — they’ve been making coffee face masks for years - but it’s finally hitting the masses.
It’s true that in the beauty sector every promising ingredient will get its 15 minutes as a passing fad until the next ingredient, like pink pepper or beer finds another purpose and has celebs and gurus singing its praises.
While caffeine certainly lifts moods, it apparently lifts hair and helps skin issues, too.
According to a Byrdie report, a 2007 study saw decent follicle growth on men who underwent caffeine-infused hair treatments. Then, a German study treated weak hair follicles of both men and women and the caffeine lead to 25 percent growth.
Here is how: caffeine stimulates growth and prevents the follicle cells from dying or being inactive. Female follicles are also shown to be more receptive. So there’s all that to chew, er, drink on.
Clinical tests will be needed to further understand, appreciate, and learn the full effects of caffeine on hair or on skin. That said, there is caffeine in a great variety of products, like:
Plantur 39 Caffeine Treatment for women helps bulk up your thinning hair by promoting hair growth.
Kave Body Scrub, which is made of organic coffee grounds and oils. Caffeine is also said to decrease the appearance of veins and help eczema, among other things, so they say.
Thicker Fuller Hair Cell-U-Plex Root Booster, which relies on caffeine to lift limpness. Thin hair be gone.
Origins’ GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream works to reduce under-eye puffiness, brighten appearance, and to wake up eyes with its caffeine x coffee complex.
There are hundreds more beauty products like these - the point is that all sorts of things, from under eye cream to root lifter, can have a caffeine fix. And They are most likely better and healthier for you than that sixth - actually even second - latte, if you don’t want to put on more weight… and who wants that?
