Coffee + Skin: Caffeine for a Healthier Skin

I must say that this is something new to me. I never thought that caffeine can actually gives us the chance to achieve that healthier skin we have been dreaming of. Coffee, a universal breakfast drink that wakes up our senses everyday can also nourish our skin, decrease the chance of having skin cancers and shockingly promotes hair growth in men.

In today's beauty industry, Caffeine is now being used in formulas for body creams, hair serum and other cosmetic products that you can find in the market. Caffeine in skincare products is not really a good combination because it is very hard to penetrate in the skin but kudos to our advanced technology in making things easier for us.

Surprisingly, drinking 4-6 coffees daily decreases that chance of getting certain skin cancers and that was proven by a clinical study of white American women.
Daily coffee consumption and prevalence of nonmelanoma skin cancer in Caucasian women.
The purpose of this study was to assess the relationship between daily coffee consumption and nonmelanoma skin cancer. This study was a cross-sectional analysis of women enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative Observational Study (n=93 676). As nearly all cases of self-reported nonmelanoma skin cancer occurred among Caucasian women (97.8%), we focused our analyses on this group. Compared with nondrinkers, women drinking only caffeinated coffee on a daily basis had a 10.8% lower prevalence of nonmelanoma skin cancer. Consumption of six or more cups of caffeinated coffee per day was associated with a 36% reduction in nonmelanoma skin cancer. After adjusting for various demographic and life style variables, daily consumption of six or more cups was associated with a 30% reduced prevalence of nonmelanoma skin cancer. In contrast to caffeinated coffee, daily consumption of decaffeinated coffee was not associated with a significant change in self-reported nonmelanoma skin cancer for Caucasian women. Daily caffeinated coffee consumption was associated with a dose-related decreased prevalence of nonmelanoma skin cancer in Caucasian women. via
So I think, it is already a myth about coffee sucking out all the collagen in our skin making it super dry and unhealthy.

For all coffee drinkers out there, what can you say about this?
