According to the National Coffee Association, 83 percent of Americans report drinking coffee on a regular basis, with more people consuming coffee and owning their own personal coffee brewing machines in their homes each year. Research studies have generally linked coffee consumption with positive effects -- yet consuming too much caffeine or quitting drinking it altogether might potentially have some negative effects on your health, such as indirectly causing potential damage to your skin.
