Alcohol and your skin


Some alcohol, like red wine, has shown to be beneficial for your health — but only when you drink in moderation. If you go on benders every weekend, plus drink regularly throughout the week, you’re doing more harm than good. And we’re not just talking about your general health. We’re talking about the impact overindulging can have on your appearance, too!

Here are just 3 reasons drinking alcohol causes wrinkles:

1. Too much alcohol makes wrinkles appear faster and more plentiful because it’s a diuretic.

Alcohol is a diuretic, which means you have the urge to go more frequently. This happens because your kidneys are working overtime to process that alcohol, which eliminates water from your system and organs, including your skin. Being parched from the inside affects your skin, making wrinkles appear faster.

2. Too much alcohol robs your body of vitamin A.
Vitamin A serves as an antioxidant that is essential in cell production. Alcohol depletes your natural stores of vitamin A, impeding the process of cell renewal. That means your skin becomes less resistant to the damaging effects of the environment.

3. Too much alcohol messes up your sleep cycle.
If you’re a heavy drinker, you might be able to fall asleep without a problem, but it won’t be a restful night for you. A study found that the more you drink before you go to sleep, the lighter your sleep will be.  In addition, it can also make insomnia worse. Lack of deep sleep leads to a poor complexion marked by more wrinkles, enlarged pores and pigmentation irregularities.

So, the next time you want to binge, think about the impact it will have on your skin. Ask yourself this: is it worth it?
