The Worst Alcoholic Drinks For Your Skin
We love tipping back a couple glasses of wine as much as the next girl, but that alcohol isn’t doing anything good for our skin. “There’s no doubt alcohol takes its toll on the skin,” says cosmetic dermatologist Sam Bunting. “Over the long-term, heavy drinking can lead to persistent inflammation, redness, and broken capillaries appearing.”
Alcohol also dehydrates us, so our skin may be puffy, dry and dull after drinking. And the sugar in it can lead to breakouts. That cocktail is starting to sound less appealing, isn’t it? But some are better than others, so here are the worst drinks for our skin, according to Dr. Bunting:
- Tequila - It has less sugar, so that’s a positive and if you skip the salt, you’re even better off.
- Beer - It doesn’t have as much alcohol as hard liquor and beer actually contains some antioxidants, which are good for the skin.
- Gin and tonic or vodka and tonic - They’re both relatively low in sugar and salt, so they’re kinder to our skin.
- White wine - Our beloved white wine isn’t good for our skin. “White wine is high in sugar, which leads to systemic inflammation,” Dr. Bunting explains. “This means that it ultimately contributes to skin damage and increased skin aging.”
- Mojito - They’re tasty, but these cocktails are high in sugar, which raises the risk of wrinkles, inflammation, and acne.
- Margarita - The sugar and salt in this drink lead to puffiness and all those other aging effects sugar has on our skin.
- Red wine - This is the worst drink for your skin because it’s a histamine releaser, meaning it promotes redness and flushing. And Dr. Bunting says it’s especially bad if you’re prone to redness or rosacea.
