Rumour has it that Coffee is not good for you. But, is any of it actually true?
Rumour: All you have to do is drink 8 glasses of water a day.
Yes. Water is good for you and your skin. It helps hydrate your body and nourish your skin. Yes, there is a BUT! Your skin still needs antioxidants to prevent damage that is caused from our environment. Coffee is a natural source of antioxidants. The environment we live in contains free radicals that create a havoc for our skin. Loading your skin up with coffee will help boost the skin with natural defence to free radicals. Coffee does all this fabulous stuff, that's why we have used coffee as a main ingredient in every Mocha Me product.
Rumour: SPF will protect you from sun damage and SPF protection allows you to stay in the sun for longer.
No. SPF does not allow you to stay in the sun for longer. Both UVA and UVB are harmful, and can lead to life-threatening skin diseases. So, you need a good sunscreen which has both UVA and UVB protection. How can you ensure your skin is less at risk? Using caffeine on your skin can protect your skin with UV carcinogens. Coffee inhibits DNA damage response, thus protecting your skin from adverse UVB effects. Another reason we love our coffee body scrubs!
Rumour: You will age like your mum.
You might. Ageing is not influenced purely by genetics. Ageing is also determined by the environment you live in. Coffee plays an important role in regulating cell re-growth. This means that the coffee you put on your skin will improve the elasticity by retaining hydration and increasing collagen. Conclusion? You might age like your mum if she is a Mocha Me-r!
Rumour: Coffee can trigger acne.
Acne is in your genetics - unfortunately! Although environmental factors and the food you eat can increase acne, there are some amazing things coffee can actually do to reduce acne. How? Coffee when rubbed on the skin promotes blood circulation. This means that coffee is a blessing for healthy, energised skin. In doing this, coffee also reduces the swelling of tissues. Say goodbye to acne. Choose Mocha Me.
