 Coffee: The New

Want to get rid of those pesky wrinkles? Well, then forget trying lotions and grab a cup of coffee.

Nescafe, brand of instant coffee made by Swiss-based manufacturer Nestle, has started selling a version aimed at women, and it comes with the beauty-enhancing ingredient collagen.

So, instead of applying lotions to smooth out wrinkles, users can simply rely on a cup of coffee.

Sachets contain coffee, skimmed milk and 200mg of collagen - a protein found naturally in body tissue.

The precise beauty benefits of mixing collagen with coffee are unclear, byt this product is part of a much wider trend known as "nutri-cosmetics".

This is where food and drink manufacturers promote new products by emphasising the positive effect they can have on the hair, eyes, skin or general appearance.

"Collagen is just one popular ingredient used to lend a more skin/beauty-friendly image to a product, and is increasingly found not just in beauty products but also in food and drink products - including coffee," the Daily Express quoted David Jago, director of trends and innovation at market analysts Mintel, as saying.

The drink has so far made its debut only in Singapore.
