    Makers tout caffeine's skin, health-care benefits

    Caffeine invigorates us when we're dragging. But can it reduce eye puffiness, smooth facial wrinkles, lengthen eyelashes or reduce cellulite?
    According to beauty product manufacturers, it can.
    Caffeine emerged last year as the latest "magic ingredient" in topical skin care. Skin-care giants like Estee Lauder, Clinique and Garnier all have caffeinated products. From skin creams and powders to mascara and eye massages, cosmetics are brimming over with claims about the wondrous properties of caffeine they contain.

    The true test is just trying the product to see if it works for you, Kingsley suggested. She advised to do your own research about the firm and product and ask a dermatologist.
    It's a good idea, too, she said, to test a product in a small area, such as the inside of the forearm, for safety purposes.
    Cosmetics makers don't have to submit data about injuries caused by their products. The Food and Drug Administration doesn't issue product recalls, although it can request them.
    Consumers need to be cautious, Kingsley said, because cosmetics aren't subject to pre-market approval. "That's why lots of claims are made. You can't always believe what you read."

    Never heard of this before...but whether it's true or not, all things in moderation. I can see people downing large amounts of caffeine thinking it will help their skin, not realizing they're damaging themselves in a different way.

    The skincare industry is currently undergoing a multitude of tests using topical caffeine as a means of eliminating the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and creating a rejuvenated, youthful complexion.

    I agree, just like wine, I'm sure caffeine in moderation is perfectly fine.

    What I HAVE done before is I used ground coffee, ones that have already been used, as an exfoliator when I took a bath. You have to gently massage it onto your skin and it leaves your skin feeling smooth! It's so effective it's ridiculous. Maybe just use it twice a week though and again, GENTLY massage it. My fiancee forgot that part AND used a loofah, so he ended up with raw, red skin.

    Also, just to add to the list of skincare brands/products that use coffee, there this CoffeeBerry foundation from Priori that I bought online and it's fantastic. I don't use it as often as I should (because I have an array of foundation) but it's definitely a good option when I want a healthy coverage.
