Coffee is enjoyed as a drink by millions of people world-wide and has been for at least a thousand year. In contains caffeine, which is a mild stimulant, and in many people coffee drinking enhances alertness, concentration and mental and physical performance. Although it contains a wide variety of subtances, it is generally accepted that caffeine is responsible for many of coffee's physiological effects. Because caffeine influences the central nervous system in a number of ways and because a small number of people may be particularly sensitive to these effects, some people have attributed all sorts of health problems to coffee including skin problem. Would you believe that it has been known for 100 years that coffee drinking can help asthma sufferers by improving ventilatory function. And it widely believed that antioxidants protect against the development of chronic diseases including heart disease and cance but whether the antioxidants characteristics of coffee have such effects remains to be determined.

There are pros and cons in using coffee for skin care. Coffee contains antioxidant that can help fight skin cancer. Some preliminary studies show that topically applied coffee can yield beautiful skin. Coffee is a mild diurectic. If drunk in large quantity, coffee can cause dehydration of the skin. Drinking coffee can interfere with a good night's sleep, which is essential to good skin. So drinking small amount of coffee shouldn't affect the health of skin. One of the best ways is to use a broad spectrum sunscreen everyday even when the weather is cloudy.

hmm, i dont really have facts to say here but i do know that an excess in caffeine is bad for our skin. maybe you should just drink coffee moderately and make sure that you drink more water than coffee. :)
