What is Caffeine Skin Care?
It can be difficult to keep up with all of the latest beauty trends. With social media being a major outlet when it comes to introducing us to new products, it’s almost impossible to not come across new trends in beauty, hair and skin care. One of the beauty trends gaining some serious popularity lately is a caffeine sleeping mask. This face mask is infused with caffeine (and may also contain hyaluronic acid). The end result? A boost in your skins tone, firmness and hydration by morning. This is achieved through the antioxidants in the caffeine and the hydrating properties in the hyaluronic acid.
How Do I Use It?
Caffeine sleeping masks are applied to the face and neck after cleansing. Applying a thin later to the skin, this is the last step in your night routine, as you’ll leave it on overnight. In the morning, simply wash it off and enjoy glowing, hydrated and firm skin for up to 48 hours.
With that being said, chances are you’re no stranger to caffeine skin care in general. There are plenty of options aside from sleep masks that will allow you to try various methods of delivering these benefits to your skin. A quick scan through the beauty section at places like Sephora, Ulta and others will land you among products like caffeine scrubs, which exfoliate and clean. Caffeine serums focus on the eye area and aid in the reduction of puffiness and appearance of dark circles, while caffeine lotions firm and tighten the skin, for a more glowing and youthful look overall.
Is it Even Worth It?
We think caffeine infused skin care is worth a whirl. We’re always up for trying new skin care and as we get older, we’re always open to products that firm, tone, brighten – and just give our skin a little life (less haggard?). With the daily stress and constant running around, you don’t have to ask us twice to take a few minutes for a little self care. In general, our skin responds well to caffeine products, for both the face and body (not to mention our obsession with coffee in general, but we digress). The key is always to keep expectations within reason. Some beauty trends can deliver more immediate (but temporary) results – like gua sha tools and ice globes, but consistent and regular use can deliver consistent and regular results.
