A whole bunch of bad things are behind alcohol. Alcohol is a toxin with very low nutritional value and can contribute to lower liver function, decreased immunity, hormonal disorders, cell damage, and insulin problems.
It is a diuretic, so it will stimulate the expulsion of water, which can affect the skin and make it dehydrated, gray and dull. Wrinkles and pores seem bigger as it is very difficult to restore hydration of the body after alcohol consumption.
Swelling is followed by excessive consumption of alcohol. Not only is the skin dehydrated but the inflammatory processes inside the body occur due to the digestion of the alcohol, which will manifest on the skin through redness, visible cracked capillaries and bloating. Particularly visible in the eye area, where the skin is thin and there are no natural protective mechanisms.
Alcoholic sugar is a great food for inflammatory processes that will result in pimples. Alcoholic sugar can crystallize your skin cells, leading to less elastic and flexible cells. It can also initiate an insulin response, and elevated insulin can negatively affect the thyroid and hormones, causing hormonal imbalance and skin problems.
Alcohol can exhaust a healthy level of important bacteria living in our intestine - microbial. They are important for regulation of immune system, which is important in managing inflammatory skin conditions.
Alcohol withdrawal affects the tone and appearance of the skin, so 3 days of abstinence are required for the expulsion of alcohol and sugar, which can result in skin improvement. Encourage detoxification processes by intake of lemon water, focus on preparative cosmetics containing vitamin A and antioxidants.
