Coffee is best known as a refreshing beverage that perks you up when you’re feeling tired. It’s perfect for a quick pick-me-up. But did you know that coffee can help invigorate and rejuvenate your skin as well?
It’s true! Coffee is more than a delicious drink. Green, unroasted coffee beans can also perk up your skin when applied as part of a face serum. Coffee beans contain antioxidants that work to nourish and hydrate your skin. They also help to combat UV damage, increase skin elasticity and even out skin tone.
So why should you add coffee beans to your skincare routine? Here are a few ways they’ll help you look fresher, healthier and more youthful.
Rich in Protective Antioxidants
Free radicals and other environmental stressors can impact your skin’s appearance. They’ll begin make it look dull and uneven.
Luckily, the oil extracted from Coffea arabica fruit is filled with powerful antioxidants. These include chlorogenic acid, condensed proanthocyanidins, ferulic acid and quinic acid.
Green coffee beans have a high antioxidant content. This can help protect your skin from environmental stressors like pollution and sun damage.
The antioxidants found in green coffee oil are also considered relatively stable. So they are able to withstand exposure to moderate levels of heat, light and oxygen.
Helps Protect Your Skin from the Sun
Ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun’s rays can damage DNA. It can cause photo-aging, dermatitis and skin cancer.
However, green coffee oil is capable of protecting your skin from UVB radiation. This is thanks to its characteristics as a potent antioxidant. Radiation in the UVB range causes sunburn and is incredibly damaging to the skin. So coffee oil’s ability to absorb harmful UV radiation is especially beneficial.

Green coffee can also make skin feel more firm, flexible and smooth by diminishing fine lines and wrinkles.

Green coffee oil can prevent dryness and dehydration. It does this by improving the skin’s physiological balance and promoting moisture retention.
