parfumdreams presents: Coffee Week

Beautifying natural caffeine

parfumdreams can show you the power of natural beautifier caffeine for all kinds of applications – from full and shiny hair to smooth legs, bright and beautiful eyes or seductive fragrances with a sensuous coffee nuance – and how to integrate beauty products with this plant-based ingredient into your skincare routine. Caffeine is a great antioxidant and a refreshing all-rounder with an immediate beautifying effect that both coffee and tea lovers adore.

 

Caffeine and its effects

Caffeine affects the human organism in many different ways. Drinking a cup of coffee or tea, or a glass of Coke, can increase your heart rate and make you feel more alert and productive. Caffeine can also improve your concentration as well as your cognitive powers by accelerating thought processes.

The cosmetics industry often incorporates caffeine into haircare products to counteract hair loss. In bodycare products caffeine can help to slow the natural ageing process, firm the skin and reduce cellulite.

If you’re ready to do battle with the dark circles under your eyes, try skincare products that contain caffeine to achieve a fresher and more youthful appearance. Fine fragrance fans adore eau-de-toilettes and perfumes with subtle coffee aromas.

 

Caffeine to prevent hair loss isn’t just an old wife’s tale

The hair root requires plenty of energy for strong and healthy growth, especially in the growth phase. If you suffer from premature or stress-related hair loss, that energy is not available in sufficient quantities. Caffeine can effectively prevent hair loss and extend the growth phase. If you use a special caffeine shampoo, the plant-based active ingredient penetrates deep into the hair follicles where it is stored for up to 24 hours.

To notice the positive and nourishing effect of a caffeine treatment it’s important to use the product every day so that the caffeine reserves are constantly topped up. Washing your hair daily with a good caffeine shampoo can make your wish for thicker and luxuriously shiny hair come true.

Caffeine in bodycare products - the skin smoothing miracle

Caffeine’s antioxidant effect is the perfect way to protect your skin against free radical damage. When produced in excess, these unstable molecules have a negative impact on the appearance of the skin. The anti-inflammatory properties of caffeine are legendary in this connection. Creams containing this natural active ingredient energise the skin.

Bodycare products containing caffeine have a special effect on skin that is affected by cellulite. Caffeine has a diuretic effect on the skin tissue and it contains an enzyme that helps to break down and eliminate fat cells. Regular use of caffeine-based creams, massage oils and body scrubs can give you a perceptibly smoother skin.

Bye-bye dark circles

Caffeine isn’t just a welcome pick-me-up in a freshly brewed cup of coffee, the plant-based natural ingredient also has a unique energising effect in eye creams.

Caffeine helps reduce swelling. It also firms and smooths tired skin. High quality skincare products for the face containing caffeine are a clever way to magic away the effects of a late night.

If you tend to get dark rings under your eyes naturally, they can be visible reduced by the circulation boosting effect of caffeine, which improves the oxygen supply to the cells and provides them with important nutrients. Bags under the eyes can also be effectively treated with eye creams that contain caffeine.

Smells like coffee

Talented perfume designers have studied the characteristic aroma of coffee and attempted to incorporate it into very special creations. The resulting fragrances are emotive of wonderful, relaxing moments at your favourite café.

One popular coffee fragrance is Eau de Toilette Spray Coffee Break by Maison Margiela. It has a milky sandalwood base note a spritzy lemon middle note and a top note that combines coffee with apple. This creative scent has a sensuous, imaginative and oriental fragrance that doesn’t disappoint even the highest expectations.

Easy peasy - a home-made coffee scrub

It only takes a few simple ingredients to make a coffee body scrub at home. It’s always best to use fresh coffee grounds. Add a teaspoon of coffee grounds to a small bowl and mix with honey or a high quality oil to create a smooth paste. Olive oil is very skin friendly, or for a nourishment boost use jojoba oil, and you can even use your favourite massage oil if it’s to hand. Then apply the coffee scrub to your body and massage it on the skin to gently remove dead cells. The caffeine penetrates deep into the skin where it gets to work boosting the cell renewal process. When you rinse off the scrub your skin feels wonderfully smooth and supple.
