Drinking caffeinated beverages doesn’t actually cause fluid loss and dehydration. They may have a mild diuretic effect though. If you’re afraid that coffee may dehydrate you and that it affects the quality of the skin around the eyes, that’s not the issue.

Besides, caffeine is a vasoconstrictor and may shrink blood vessels surrounding the eye area reducing the appearance of swelling and tiredness. You can also apply it to your face.
Still, caffeinated drinks can cause headaches and insomnia in some people so be careful with drinking more than 4 cups of coffee a day.
