Chances are, when you consider having a cocktail or other alcoholic drink, the last thing on your mind is your skin. If you’re like most people, you are having a good time, enjoying the moment, spending time with friends and family, or savoring a delicious meal. What we’re about to tell you isn’t intended to squash your mood, but to help you weigh the consequences that indulging in alcohol may have on your health, appearance and acne-prone skin.
Even though acne isn’t caused by alcohol, there is an abundance of scientific data that proves that alcohol adversely affects your skin and other organs. Let’s take a look at the impact of alcohol on your skin, how it can exacerbate your acne and how to prevent any damage to your skin…or at least moderate the effects without becoming totally abstinent!
From a physiological standpoint, the negative effects of alcohol are numerous.

Note to those who suffer from Rosacea: This skin disease affects more than 50 million people worldwide. Parts of the skin that are affected by rosacea are sensitive to certain stimulants that cause their capillaries to open. One of these stimulants is alcohol and should be avoided. As previously mentioned, red wine is the worst option for rosacea-sufferers.
