Black coffee is like an accused who faces unnecessary allegations. Sounds dramatic?! As dramatic as it may sound, coffee has been blamed as an unhealthy drink for eons. Recent studies have proved that the negative health effects that we have been associating this drink with are not as prominent as it has been established. If consumed in the recommended quantity, black coffee benefits outsmart all other beverages. Need proof? Here I am!
Black coffee benefits
- Caffeine present in black coffee improves metabolism and suppresses hunger, thereby aiding weight loss. It also contains antioxidants that aid weight loss.
- Black coffee stimulates the production of dopamine and nor epinephrine. They are called happy chemicals, which help in improving mood.
- Studies have proven that black coffee aids in improving cardiovascular health
- Black coffee also reduced the chances of Alzheimer’s, Dementia, etc
- Black coffee is a vasodilator that expands the blood vessels thereby increasing blood flow and hence it aids in reducing cellulite thereby keeping your skin glowing and young.
Shall we consume black coffee in unlimited quantities?
While black coffee benefits are huge, they are beneficial as long as we keep the intake limited to the allowed range. For an adult human, 400mg is the recommended intake of black coffee. Excessive consumption of black coffee causes increased, stress levels, disrupted sleep cycle, acidity, etc. Hence intake of black coffee must be limited if we need maximum benefits. While we are at it, external application of black coffee has benefits that are unlimited and we need not weigh the amount of coffee we apply to our skin. That said, DIY face packs, scrubs, and creams using coffee powder can be messy and time-consuming. To make it easier, M Caffeine has come up with a range of products that are manufactured with a real coffee powder derived from high-quality coffee beans. I tried a few of these and this is what I have to say.
M Caffeine products that I swear by – Black coffee benefits for skin
Body polishing and toning kit
This is a three-in-one kit with body scrub, body polishing oil, and body lotion. Infused with the goodness of coffee the kit is a luxurious delight. I felt like I was pampered with exotic coffee. The fine granules of the body scrub are soft yet possess the scrubbing effect. By taking a spoonful of the powder body scrub and mixing it with water we can scrub the whole body, which makes it a reasonable long-lasting product.
The fragrance of coffee is supremely soothing. This is a perfect gift for those coffee lovers whose dopamine levels rise with just the smell of coffee. With the soothing effect of the fragrance and the scrubbing effect of the body scrub, we get a feeling of being in a spa.
The body polishing oil is the second ingredient in the kit. The oil is nonsticky and again with the fragrance of coffee. If you have dry skin, this polishing oil is the best bet for you. You can apply and leave it as is. You need not wash it off before stepping out. You can also use this oil for a tanned glowy look.
Further, the body lotion is the cherry on the cake. An all absorbent lotion that has a mild coffee fragrance. Unlike the scrub and oil, the lotion does not have a strong coffee fragrance which makes it ideal to apply on the go.
While thinking of black coffee benefits, the most important aspect is that for undereye care. This possibility is made used in the formula for the M Caffeine undereye cream. I used to have extremely dark undereye circles. It has reduced considerably. While applying a soothing and buttery feel itself is proof of how well it is protecting the under-eye area. It is good for reducing eye bags and also reducing the darkness. However, it would not magically delete the clack cover, which is impossible for any skincare product in the world. But the level of dark circle reduction is unbelievable.
M Caffeine products are under affordable range and hence you have the black coffee benefits for skin care without burning the pocket.
