There are pros and cons in using coffee for skin care. Pros - coffee contains antioxidant that can help fight skin cancer. - some preliminary studies show that topically applied coffee can yield beautiful skin. Cons - 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. But at large quantity, you should talk to your doctor first to find out if the antioxidant benefit is worth it. There are other ways to prevent skin cancer. One of the best ways is to use a broad spectrum sunscreen everyday even when the weather is cloudy.
