coffee drinker

 

Coffee for your skin! In addition to giving you the morning boost, coffee may be excellent for your skin.

According to a 2015 study in the journal of the National Cancer Institute, a daily cup of coffee may protect against malignant melanoma. Allegedly, people with the highest coffee intake had a lower risk of malignant melanoma.

This isn’t the first time researchers have found a connection between coffee and the risk of skin cancer. According to a study led by the Harvard School of Public Health published in 2012, men and women who drank at least 3 cups of coffee a day were found to have a 20% lower risk of developing basal cell carcinoma, than non-coffee drinkers.

So coffee for your skin is great but you still need to protect your skin from the sun. Sunscreen still remains the best way to prevent skin cancer. After you shower and use your daily routine on your face, always apply a broad spectrum sunscreen on all exposed areas.

Enjoy your coffee!
