What are the Effects of Citrus & Coffee in Skin Care?
Today you’ll learn about the surprising combination of citrus and coffee in skin care. When it comes to your morning breakfast routine, coffee and orange juice may not seem like the best flavour combination. But surprisingly, the combination of coffee and vitamin C can work wonders when paired together as skincare and beauty products.
The researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics stumbled onto this powerful combination while developing their new line of coffee-based skincare products. As it turns out, the key to the combo is antioxidants, which both coffee and citrus fruit contain in abundance. When paired together, the result is a powerful one-two punch against common skin problems.
#1 Coffee and Citric Acid
One pairing that Callyssee Cosmetics researchers found particularly effective is coffee mixed with citric acid. They used the combination in both their Better Bean Clean Face Coffee Scrub, as well as their Fizzy Macaron Bath Bomb. The combination here creates a powerful pairing for fighting acne, blemishes and other facial imperfections. In its natural state, the Coffea Arabica (organic green coffee seed extract) used in Callyssee Cosmetics products contains mild acids that mimic salicylic acid in their ability to clean the skin. When paired with the citric acid, the combination almost acts like a mini “chemical peel” to leave the skin fresh.
#2 Coffee and Vitamin C
While the acid combination of coffee in skin care is powerful, it may pale in comparison to the big reason for the grouping: The union of two antioxidant superstars. In recent years, researchers have discovered that coffee may actually be one of the most potent plants for antioxidants that we consume regularly, with a rich, complex blend of catechins and polyphenols. And the form of coffee used in Callyssee’s products, Coffea Arabica, has more antioxidants than the rest. Pair that with the tried and true vitamin C, and you have a powerful combination for both preventing and repairing damage from wrinkles. You’ll find them working in tandem in Callysee’s Lighten Up Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum.
