"How exactly does alcohol consumption affect skin?"
  • Print

Alcohol consumption has many adverse effects on skin. The main issues are that it dehydrates skin and dilates blood vessels. The blood vessels stay this way until it leads to skin flushing, edema, and the triggering of Rosacea flare-ups. It also depletes the body of Vitamin A and causes extreme dehydration, which in effect will speed the aging process. What’s more, alcohol introduces more sugar into the body – also bad for aging and dehydration.
