BEAUTY EDUCATION

Heard that Clinique also uses caffeine, lecithin, and few antioxidants into the skin. I wanted to touch a little bit information to be shared to you abiut caffeine. Since, we all wanted a good skincare product

It’s claimed to reduce cellulite or even caring the puffy eyes. However, there is no research that proven such a things could have happened. Caffeine is related to cellulite just because there is distant relationship to aminophylline that being rumored as an ingredients that will reduce the looks of cellulite in our body. The modified form of this ingredients is  theophylline, and caffeine contains theophylline.

Caffeine may have soothing and antioxidant properties, especially if our skin are exposed to direct sunlight. This is applicable when we view it as skincare product. It can penetrate skin and has a constricting effect, reduce skin redness but it may cause skin sensitizing.

For eyes puffiness. There is also no indication that caffeine could help to solve the problem. However, research does show caffeine has an inhibitory action on a key protein in skin that helps it look younger. There is lot’s of beauty article that talked about the goodness of using this ingredients, but all I know is risk. Coffee drinker could suffer from dry skin, premature aging due to glycation, acne/more acne and tannin, which is normally being used as horse tanning.

I’m a coffee drinker, I can say that ‘yes, I suffer from acne, dry skin and premature aging’. I change my coffee into black tea then to green tea. Green tea serve different result, it does make my teeth white, my body feel rejuvenate and I feel I lot’s more younger than when I drink coffee. Coffee can also trigger depression and anxiety. I hope that by reading my blog, you will get exposure more about the good and bad things for your skin. I hope this information could help you in your lifestyle. You can read on here and here

Will I recommend the product?  Yes, I will, especially for those of you who have dry to very dry skin

Will I repurchased the product?  Yes, I will
