What It Does
Caffeine is an antioxidant that protects skin against free radicals. Caffeine effectively reduces the look of dark under eye circles, fine lines, and wrinkles by stimulating circulation. In the under eye area, caffeine reduces puffiness and redness.
Why It Works
Caffeine has strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. When applied topically, the anti-inflammatory properties restrict blood vessels and boost circulation that minimize puffiness and brighten the skin. The antioxidant properties protect the skin against environmental damage that leads to premature signs of aging, fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots.
