Indeed, it is generally for its lipolytic action that caffeine is used. It will stimulate lipolysis (natural degradation of lipids by our body) and thus limit the storage of fat.
In addition, it also acts as an activator of skin microcirculation. This means that it influences the micro-vascularization of tissues by modifying and reducing the appearance of cellulite.
How to use it ?
Thanks to its multiple properties, caffeine is the undisputed leader of slimming ingredients. To be used daily on storage areas such as legs or buttocks, it will help to reduce the “orange peel” aspect.
Concerning its use on the face, it will allow to improve the aspect of the eye contour by reducing the pockets and the rings.
