Effect of Alcohol on the Skin?

I'm pretty sure its not great, but what is the effect of moderate drinking on the skin? And how quickly will the skin recover once the drinking stops?

I wonder the same thing. It cant be a good effect, obviously. I'm 25, and I go thru bouts of binge drinking, and then periods of abstinence. I notice that, although i'm still fairly young, I look a lot worse under the eyes after a night of heavy drinking than I did a few years ago. I suppose it's kind of obvious that it would be bad for the skin because alcohol dehydrates the body, and the skin needs moisture to look its best. . . Not a doctor, but just giving some input here...

Celtic complexions are prone to facial roseacea (sp?), which is a mottled redness and looks like a rash. I can get a light case of this on my cheeks after a single night of serious drinking, and my face takes a few days to fully recover. I do that maybe once a year. My usual "habit" involves 1-3 units of alcohol (light buzz) once or twice a month, and my skin is unaffected by this.

Alcohol is very drying to the skin

Alcohol in general is very dehydrating to the body, and the first place it comes from is the skin. Your internal organs have to have water in order to function, but if skin get dehydrated, you aren't going to die. This is why our skin looks so crappy after a night of drinking. Moisture in the cells of your skin is what keeps it plump and full, not dehydrated and sucked up. Your skin is very forgiving, especially when you are younger, but like all good things, that forgiveness comes to an end. Just like yo-yo dieting, or that really hot but good for nothing guy you sometimes hang out with, it can end in a way we weren't really planning. Be good to your skin. Keep the water on hand, wash your face before going to sleep (even if it is one of those pre-soaped cleansing cloths), and give yourself a few days to rebound. Besides, it is better for the liver!

Last year I went to my 20 year reunion from High school.

I noticed that the people who tended to be hard partiers had aged a lot more quickly than those who don't drink much....

I also noticed a friend who seemed to age a lot within a year or 2 because of his drinking as well...

Another friend who used to drink a lot but doesn't any more has become much more youthful, friendly and outgoing (because Alcohol IS a DEPRESSANT) since he quit drinking. He looks healthier, his skin is pinker....

Hope this helps.

this has been my experience in a big way. When I don't drink my skin feels great. When I do, it itches. I can't believe we drink so much as a society.

Kisha, along with client services director Lisa Leone and production manager Cathi Christopher Wholesale Jerseys 2016 , were confined to a 10-by-10-foot room backstage at the Auditorium Theatre, working with two heat-press machines and thousands of names on clear film in folders
  • Dallas Cowboys Jersey
  • , organized by team.

    "Even though we pretty much knew who was going to go in the first round, we still made all the names
  • Detroit Lions Jersey
  • , just to be sure, because there always seems to be some anomaly every year," Kisha said.The trio typically make two jerseys for each player: One to hold on stage and another that's destined to be cut into pieces for trading cards
  • Houston Texans Jersey
  • .They bring six jerseys for every team — all with the No. 1
  • Oakland Raiders Jersey
  • on the back — to account for a team having an unlikely three first-round picks.

    Until 2014, they brought only four jerseys per team but in 2013, the Minnesota Vikings traded up and had three first-round draft picks, which meant six jerseys. When the Vikings made their move
  • Jacksonville Jaguars Jersey
  • , Stahls' grabbed an extra jersey from a mannequin in New York City's Radio City Music Hall, where the draft was held.The group gets early word of draft picks from an NFL representative as soon as the pick is submitted by the team
  • Miami Dolphins Jersey
  • . Then the two-minute drill begins: Leone grabs the correct name from a box — this year the box contained 1,600 names
  • Minnesota Vikings Jersey
  • and team possibilities — and hands it off to be pressed by Kisha and Christopher, in a play they've run repeatedly.

    Names are only prepared for first-round prospects who have confirmed they will attend the event
  • New Orleans Saints Jersey
  • . Thursday night, 25 athletes attended.Stahls' gets the list of confirmed attendees about two weeks in advance.Each team has its own unique font NFL , which means 32 versions of every name.The company spends at least six weeks preparing for the event.

    Despite the pressure
  • New York Giants Jersey
  • , the company considered Thursday just another day on the job. Friday, the Stahls' team was on-site at the NFL Shop in Draft Town as part of a larger team that produces on-demand personalized apparel for fans
  • New York Jets Jersey
  • ."This year went really great," Kisha said. "You're always nervous though, you know? You've still got butterflies. And (you're) happy when it's done."
