ATLANTA, GA, July 31, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Scientific studies have shown that coffee consumption can promote overall good health and that it can work wonders for your skin. J. Martinez & Company, an importer of Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee, wishes to explore some of the many benefits that coffee can provide for your skin.
Coffee is a rich source of the antioxidants that help to protect your skin and enhance its defenses against free radicals. Free radicals contribute to the overall degradation of your DNA, which in turn makes your skin age more quickly. The antioxidants in coffee put a stop to those free radicals, helping your skin cells to look younger and more healthy.
Outside of free radicals, one of the leading causes of skin damage and aging is exposure to UV light. Fortunately, studies have shown that the caffeine in coffee is actually able to inhibit the DNA damage response that occurs when the skin is exposed to UV light. J. Martinez & Company notes that while coffee can inhibit DNA damage caused by UV light, it may not be able to stop all of the skin damage if you expose your skin to the sun's rays. Drink coffee, but be certain to wear sunscreen too.
"The caffeine in coffee also helps to enhance your overall circulation, which in turn helps to reduce swelling, decrease puffiness and encourage overall healthiness within your skin," says John Martinez, Owner of J. Martinez & Company. "This can help your skin to improve its cell growth, increase its collagen and improve its elasticity."
