Alcohol Booze & the Negative Effects on Your skin

It’s Friday night and you’re out partying with a group of friends. You head to a club and become immersed with the loud pumping music and vibrant dancing bodies. You get a few shots into your body to help you to relax even more and by the end of the night you end up drinking one too many and is carried home, hopefully by one of your trusting friends.

The next morning is not so pleasant. Looking at yourself in the mirror, your eyes are puffy, skin is dry, tone is blotchy and complexion is dull and lifeless. Alcohol takes a terrible toll on your skin. Excessive skin dryness, sensitivity and premature ageing are some of the more noticeable effects.

Alcohol is a highly acid-forming substance, so after way too much bar-hopping, your pH balance goes completely out of balance. The pH level determines the balance of hydrogen and some protective acids on the surface of our skin.

When you drink too much too quickly, the blood vessels expand rapidly and this may lead to pimples, blemishes, redness, itching and blotchy skin.

Continue your alcohol partying days and you run the risk of a case of premature aging.

Wrinkles and dull skin are the worst consequences of spending too much time at the bar and night clubs. Gradually, the skin becomes dry, wrinkled and discoloured.

Skin wrinkles can occur after an extended period of alcohol abuse because the water in the body and skin is continually evaporated. This occurs because alcohol is a powerful dehydrating substance. Also, overindulgence of alcohol causes a decrease in the body’s level of vitamin A and C. These  are very important antioxidant vitamins that supports body and skin health and essential for generating collagen, which keeps the skin supple.

When you consume alcohol, 20 per cent is absorbed by your stomach and 80 per cent goes into your blood stream. Eventually, the liver is left with the job of dispelling the toxins. Too much alcohol on a frequent basis hampers the efficiency of your liver functioning.

The effects of alcohol on the skin are worse for women than men. It generally takes women longer to process alcohol. Women who consume large amounts of beer on a regular basis, run the risk of developing psoriasis. This is a condition that leads to redness, irritation, flaky and patchy skin.

Alcohol leaves the body primarily in three ways – urine, breath and sweat. So after a night out in town, the best thing to do is to consume lots of water to rehydrate your body and flush out the alcohol from your system.
