Since we drink our morning coffee pretty much all day, we鈥檙e stoked to hear it鈥檚 actually good for our skin. Not just good, but life-changing, life-saving good. According to Harper鈥檚 Bazzar , 鈥渁 massive new study suggests that drinking lots of coffee could reduce your risk of developing cancerous melanoma.鈥 So, you know we had to look into it for ourselves.


According to the Oxford Journals, skin cancer is the fifth most common type of cancer. Not great news, we know, but it can be warded off with a higher consumption of coffee: 鈥淗igher coffee intake was associated with a modest decrease in risk of melanoma in this large US cohort study.鈥 So, it鈥檚 not entirely clear from the study what exact compounds in our morning brew make it so great for the healthy production of skin cells, but we鈥檙e glad it鈥檚 doing what it鈥檚 doing.


We鈥檙e definitely keeping our eyes peeled for more coffee-friendly studies. In the meantime, keep sipping that coffee, ladies and gents. And a little sunscreen never hurt either.

Will these findings make you increase your daily coffee intake? Let us know in the comments below.
