Wake Up Call About Coffee

If you are a coffee addict there are some things you need to know. Coffee seems great. It wakes you up in the morning and gives you that boost of energy when you need it the most. But coffee has an ugly side.

Coffee may brighten your morning but it certainly does not brighten your smile. Not only does coffee stain your pearly whites, but its acidity wears down the tooth’s enamel. Not to mention it gives you ‘coffee breath’ and nobody wants bad breath! Brushing your teeth after each cup of coffee is important, but if you are on the go, always carry sugar-free gum and a small bottle of mouthwash with you. This will help prevent your teeth from staining and will leave you with fresh breath.

Believe it or not, coffee can also affect your skin. Coffee is a diuretic, so the more you drink, the more dehydrated you become. Dehydration causes skin to lose moisture and even break out. Excessive amounts of caffeine can cause you to lose sleep. After a restless night, you are likely to have circles under your eyes and little energy to put into your appearance in the morning. No one wants to come to work looking like a zombie! If you can’t lay off the coffee, be sure to drink a large glass of water between each cup to help rehydrate. Drinking water is the best thing you can do for your body!

You don’t have to give up coffee to stay beautiful. Just drink it in moderation!
