Cooling Coffee Compresses for Redness Skin
Think coffee does wonders for your energy levels? Wait until you see what it can do for your skin!
The caffeine in coffee is one of the best ways to constrict the dilated blood vessels bringing unwanted rosiness to your face (that’s why so many creams for under-eye circles rely on this energy booster), making it an ideal remedy for alleviating facial redness.
The key here, though, is it refrigerating the coffee to maximize its constricting properties.
You just need 1 cup caffeine coffee.
Brew 1 cup of strong, caffeine coffee for 1 cup of water (if your coffee machine allows, add twice, to create an especially dark brew).
Refrigerate overnight or until chilled.
Soak a washcloth or cotton pads in the brew and apply to face for 10 to 15 minutes.
Rinse clean with cool water.
* Avoid washing your face with water that’s too hot or too cold, since extreme temperatures force blood flow (aka redness) to your skin surface.
