WHY COFFEE & TEA IN A SERUM?
Coffee and green tea both contain caffeine which can help stimulate the skin. They also contain antioxidants which can help protect the skin and slow ageing. I originally created a coffee serum for under eye treatment. Primarily, to combat puffiness and dark circles. However, I loved the results of the coffee eye serum so much that I began using it as a full facial serum. This facial serum helps fight acne, discoloration, puffiness and makes my skin nice and smooth.
THE BENEFITS OF CAFFEINE IN SKINCARE
Not only is caffeine helpful at stimulating the skin by increasing blood flow, it can also help with discoloration. Green tea contains vitamin K which can help with dark circles. If you have sensitive or fair skin, or suffer from allergies, you may be more prone to dark circles under the eyes. Thankfully there are natural solutions, such as a coffee serum.
Green tea has anti-inflammatory elements which can be very helpful with eye puffiness. Green tea also contains polyphenols (catechins) which have therapeutic effects. Catechins are anti-bacterial agents that suppress acne-causing bacteria. Coffee can also reduce inflammation and redness. The two ingredients together can give some amazing results. Try the serum for yourself.
HOW TO USE
Every evening put about a half dropper amount into the palm of your hands. Rub your hands together and apply evenly all over your face and decollete area.
MAKE A COFFEE EYE CREAM
You can use the coffee facial serum as an eye serum. However, I found that having a thicker eye cream is more beneficial. It is so easy to make. Give it a try!
2 tablespoons of the coffee facial serum
1 teaspoon of beeswax
Heat on very low heat until completely melted. Pour into little containers. Let cool for several hours or let sit overnight.
HOW TO USE
Apply the coffee eye cream every evening before bed. Pay special attention to the under eye area and outside corners. Apply gently.
