Some skincare and beauty problems, such as wrinkles, blemishes or acne, are easy to define and identify. Others are a little harder to pinpoint, but are still a problem that you definitely want to address. And dull, tired skin certainly falls into that category. What are the effects of coffee on skin - particularly when it comes to dullness? And what about other fab antioxidants used together with coffee?
Although dull skin doesn’t get the same press as, say, wrinkles, there are still plenty of strategies for turning it into bright, beautiful skin. We spoke with the skincare and beauty researchers at Callyssee Cosmetics to see what the best ingredients are for the job (including coffee, obviously!).

#2 Niacin a.k.a. Vitamin B3
An anti-aging favorite, this vitamin visibly reverses signs of aging. It improves the appearance of uneven skin tone, fine lines, and dullness, mitigating the impact of environmental damage. As a strengthener of the outer skin layer, it tightens and helps prevent acne and relieve rosacea symptoms.
It's one of our favorites! Find it in our Double Shot Instant Face Lift for instantly visible results.
#3 Vitamins C
The effects of coffee on skin are amped up when combined with Vitamin C, a tried and true antioxidant that lightens and brightens. So it promotes an even skin tone while also lightening dark spots caused by sun exposure and/or visible signs of aging on your skin. Vitamin C also boosts collagen production, which means fewer fine lines and winkles. It's a powerhouse ingredient!
Use a product rich in Vitamin C like our Lighten Up Brighten Up Vitamin C Serum to soothe and brighten.
#4 Vitamin E
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps block free radicals and thereby prevent premature aging and repair damage. It also supports new cell growth and speeds up regeneration. All of these benefits work to reduce wrinkles and keep your skin looking younger and fresher.
And it's a superb moisturizer too! Find it in our deep treatment Demitasse Firming Facial Serum.
