Fortunately, it is possible to tell Safari to force a refresh, which will also clear the cache and cookies for a given web page. To force a refresh of a Safari web page, press the combination Option (⌥) + Command (⌘) + R on keyboard.

All of these methods will force Safari to load the web page, along with any same-domain resources requested by the web page, without using the browser’s cache. You will see a fresh, just loaded view.
