A good cup of coffee is just what many of us need to jump-start the day. Not just that, coffee is even good for your health. It can help fight stress, improve your brain power, keep your heart healthy, boost your immunity and lots more.

Coffee is also good for your skin. A 2007 study published in the European Journal of Cancer Prevention reports that daily caffeinated coffee consumption was associated with a dose-related decreased prevalence of nonmelanoma skin cancer in Caucasian women.
