Side Effects of Coffee

Using coffee for the face is beneficial as long as you know how to use coffee for skin whitening. Overusing coffee on your skin can affect the texture of your skin.

Mind this specifically when using coffee scrubs because scrubbing more than enough can cause breakouts on the skin. If you have sensitive skin, prefer to scrub your face only once a week.

Further, consuming coffee has its own benefits. However too much caffeine can impact the stress response in our body. As a result, we experience increased stress hormones like cortisol. It even causes more production of sebum or oil.


Coffee has several benefits for the skin but you have to ensure that you use it the right way. Make sure that your skin is not allergic to any ingredient while using the above-mentioned packs. However, coffee can work wonders if you are not allergic to it in any way.
