Coffee is high in anti-oxidant which include phenois that fight against chemical and evironmental radicals that can cause damage to the skin. In fact, the American Chemical Society has found that coffee is the most popular source of antioxidants in the United States — even more so than other antioxidant-rich beverages, such as tea and wine.
