What Alcohol Does To Your Skin


I've always said that alcohol and skin do not mix. Personally, I find alcohol very dehydrating on my skin. I'm always parched the next day and I break out like crazy. 

Then I read this article and I am terrified to drink ever again. They used an app called Drinking Mirror which shows how alcohol speeds up the aging process on your skin. The results are pretty hefty:

I'm in trouble lol...Actually I drink lots of water and really moisturize my skin and use eye creams I'm in my late 40s now and always get compliments on how nice my skin looks.I think if you take care of your skin I think the occasional drink is ok ;)...But I also find my skin does feel parched after drinking I will usually mix up a pack of emergen-c with water or mix a tbsp of greens powder into water.... To put the vitamins back into the system.

These before and after pictures are scary! Are the "after" pictures from the morning after?

Morning after "eye cream"

These photos really are scary. I think I'm in trouble too Bren haha. I find that using an "anti-fatigue" or even some "anti aging" creams works well for me. If I've had a few drinks I'll often try to put some on before bed as well as the next morning. The one that works well for me is this one from Garnier - it's super cheap but works better than most other brands I've tried. With that said...I should probably be more careful. I'm going to try and find this app now haha.

Hard to beluieve

I can't seem to get my head around this one. I drink, but only occasionally, I have never noticed any change in my skin. Perhaps if one is a very heavy drinker it might be true but hard to believe that a few drinks will affect the skin like the pictures show. Perhaps it is only for some skin types?

I always see it in my skin the next day. Horrible.
