Give Your Skin a Pick-Me-Up with Caffeinated Skin Care

There is no question that people across the world, especially here in America, love coffee. So much so that September 29th is designated as National Coffee Day. But did you know caffeine can wake up your skin just like your espresso wakes you up in the morning?

So, as you enjoy your latte, cappuccino, or favorite caffeinated beverage, we thought we would share our favorite caffeinated products and why they work!


The Benefits of Caffeine

Beverages like coffee and tea are naturally caffeinated, so you might think that simply drinking these beverages benefits your skin. However, studies have shown that caffeine benefits your skin when applied topically in a pure and medical-grade form. This means that drinking five cups of coffee a day probably won’t help your skin as much as a moisturizer containing caffeine would. 

This ingredient is a powerful antioxidant and provides anti-aging benefits. By constricting the blood vessels, caffeine can help to reduce redness, inflammation, puffiness and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. 

Topically applying a product with caffeine in it will directly go into your skin and work faster than a glass of green tea would. Studies have also shown that using caffeine skincare can have a sunscreen-like effect on the skin, preventing the formation of skin cancer cells.


Caffeine Skincare: The Best Facial in Miami

Many of our products that contain caffeine USP are specifically formulated to put those anti-aging benefits to good use. Take our Age Perfection Retinol 5x serum, for example. This refining retinol treatment is enhanced with a revolutionary, time-released delivery system and the antioxidant benefits of 90% green tea polyphenols and caffeine USP to help prevent irritation while efficiently delivering results. 

Our Age Perfection Retinol is a great anti-aging serum for those who can tolerate the amount of retinol in it and know the best way to use this product.


Diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and achieve smoother, firmer, more evenly toned skin. This clinically proven all-trans-retinol serum pairs a patent-pending delivery system with soothing green tea polyphenols to efficiently deliver retinol into the skin without irritation. Our Advanced Retinol + Green Tea Serum 3x has the same ingredients and provides the same benefits but is even less irritating. 

Retinol is naturally a drying ingredient that commonly causes peeling and tight, irritated skin. While retinol is the gold standard in anti-aging skincare, it has its own drawbacks that need to be accounted for in skincare products. That’s why our dermatologist-made skincare line includes retinol in gentle, hydrating formulations (paired with ingredients like caffeine USP) to minimize irritation and maximize results.

Our Code to Youth products include a serum and a cream for oilier skin types and drier skin types, respectively. Our Code to Youth Serum is filled with antioxidants, combining three powerful ingredients to create an ultra-powerful antioxidant therapy. 

  • Resveratrol – A polyphenol from red wine, provides superior antioxidant protection.
  • Green Tea Polyphenols – Anti-aging, calming, soothing to the skin.
  • Caffeine USP – Enhances the antioxidant properties of green tea and reduces inflammation.

The benefits of our Code to Youth products are:

  • Maximizes protection from free-radical damage.
  • Visibly reduces the signs of redness and inflammation.
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles.
  • Moisturizes with hyaluronic acid.

Our Code to Youth Cream provides the same benefits and includes the same ingredients, but its cream formulation is more hydrating—great for drier skin types that need the extra moisture.

Lastly, our Firming Retinol Body Lotion also contains caffeine so that you can experience the benefits of caffeine skincare on your whole body! This redefining body lotion helps to visibly lift and tighten the skin. All-trans-retinol encourages cell turnover and gives an appearance of youthful skin. 

A blend of potent antioxidants, including green tea polyphenols, resveratrol, and caffeine, help to smooth the appearance of cellulite, fine lines, and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid and ceramides moisturize and plump the skin to make your body feel ultra-soft and supple.
