I’ve always had problems with my skin. What kind of teenager would I have been if I didn’t?! Of course, there were a few girls in school with perfect skin: glowing and radiant in the sunshine, but never oily, and always even. I spent so much time feeling like I could just die with jealousy. No matter how much I exfoliated, or how many liquids and creams and treatments I used, I just couldn’t get rid of my zits.
I tried changing up my diet too. No more sugar, no more junk. Only fresh fruit and vegetables. No soft drinks, only water. The only thing I couldn’t give up was coffee. What kind of a morning would it be without a cup of coffee? The thought was horrible to me. Then again, my grandma always used to tell me to be careful about coffee because she thought it wouldn’t make my problem skin any better. So I decided to look into the ingredients that go into big brand name coffee manufacturers, and that’s when I discovered Peaked coffee.
When I was searching the website, it said that Peaked coffee would help you to think sharper, maintain a healthy heart, open up your blood vessels, and look fit. All big things for me, sure, but the real selling point was where it said it could help protect your skin. I couldn’t believe it! I thought I would have to look into it.
The website said that the vitamins they put in Peaked coffee—especially vitamin C and B vitamins—help create healthy new skin cells, and that this could slow the effects of sun damage and aging. Again, two big points: sun exposure is hard to avoid in this part of the country, especially in summer, and of course I don’t want to get wrinkles any time soon. I thought I would buy some and see if it worked out.
The difference has been crazy! Within just a few weeks, my skin was looking brighter and healthier, and all I had to do was drink a few cups of coffee, which is what I would have done anyway.
I’ll be straight with you: I work hard and I play hard, and I like my coffee strong. That’s why I drink Dark City Roast. The other coffees on offer are delicious, sure, but I need that kick in the morning. And because it doesn’t make me feel edgy and I don’t burn-out during the middle of the day, I’m more than happy to drink two more cups during the day. They give me just the lift I need, but without any of the nasty side effects.
The improvement to my skincare regimen means I’m never going back to other coffee brands. It’s so effortless! I used to spend so much money on skin products and makeup. I still use things like that, sure, but I don’t have to rely on them so much.
Then again, it’s not like a cup of coffee is going to stop me from washing my face. Eew! And obviously I haven’t stopped eating fresh fruit and vegetables. That would be crazy! And nor is it the case that I never get skin blemishes anymore. It took me years to realise that even supermodels don’t have perfect skin (in fact, some of them have terrible skin). No amount of vitamin C is going to change my genetic makeup, that’s for sure.
The thing is, drinking Peaked coffee in combination with a decent skincare routine and a healthy, balanced diet has helped me look and feel so much better. I don’t have to worry about going outside and being stared at as if the world was looking at me through one giant magnifying glass, and I just feel healthier and more at peace with myself. What a change!
