Dr. Bowe Answers “Can Coffee Fight Signs of Aging?” for Fox News Magazine
Most of us need that cup – or -two – of coffee in the morning to wake up. Besides waking you up, coffee may offer additional benefits. It is said that coffee can fight wrinkles, reduce cellulite and prevent skin damage. This opinion, however, varies greatly amongst medical experts. According to Dr. Whitney Bowe, assistant medical director for cosmetic and laser services at Advanced Dermatology’s Ossining, Westchester location, caffeine may benefit the skin, but not enough to add it to a daily skincare routine. Dr. Bowe mentions that although caffeine may break down fats and reduce redness, she has yet to encounter a caffeine-based anti-cellulite cream that is more effective than those without caffeine.
