Hello, beautiful people!
Skip drinking alcohol to get better skin. Besides the obvious negative effects on the body, alcohol affects skin in numerous ways.
Alcohol dehydrates skin which causes it to be less resilient, age faster and look dull. It also increases inflammation and causes blood vessel dilation, meaning skin can become more sensitive, red and irritated.
To make matters worse, alcohol decreases skin’s immunity, allowing your skin’s defense against germs to become weakened. Once skin’s immunity is out of balance, it can take some time for the skin to recovery.
And finally, the sugar surge that comes with most sweet cocktails causes the formation of advanced glycation end-products - molecules that accelerate aging in the skin and body.
Next time, skip those cocktails and opt for healthier options for better skin!
