Is Your Coffee Consumption Causing Your Skin To Age?

That morning cup of coffee may be part of your routine to get yourself going each day, whether you get a cup at home or grab one on the way to work. But could your daily coffee intake be having a bad effect on your skin?

Here’s the bad news – it seems it could!

Studies have shown that drinking too much coffee could cause wrinkles, as Dr. S. Manjula Jegasothy, M.D., CEO and founder of the Miami Skin Institute, revealed:

“The results of drinking too much coffee can cause the skin to wrinkle prematurely, and become more lax with time. These changes definitely give the skin a more aged appearance than in people who do not consume caffeine.”

The science says that too much caffeine can cause your blood vessels to constrict sp that those at the surface won’t deliver as many of the nutrients and antioxidants that keep your skin looking young and healthy.

So does this mean you should quit the coffee altogether?

The good news is that you can have some coffee – just not too much. One or two cups per day is fine, and you can actually reverse any ill effects over time too, as Dr. Jegasothy explained:

“Healthy skin in individuals under 50 can usually see a reversal of any of coffee’s bad effects on their skin within two to three months. Older, more mature skin types may take three to six months to reverse the aging effects of chronic coffee consumption.”

Once you have lowered your caffeine intake your should notice fewer wrinkles and better-hydrated skin as the blood vessels are able to do their job of getting the essential nutrients and collagen-building proteins to your skin.
