alcohol and acne

Recommended Posts

so before this summer i was basically acne free.

i had very good skin and when a pimple did appear, it would go away in about a week

now summer came along and i partied a lot with my friends

i also consumed lots of beer and hard liquor

my face is now .... lets just say i hate having acne. and i have lots.

was it the alcohol?

my other friends also drank alcohol and they did not break out at all.

Alcohol tends to cause inflammation and when there is any inflammation in the body, your hormones go haywire. Also it causes dehydration which your skin cells need water, your entire nody needs water, I would just say use vitamins and supplements, drink water and try to recover internally.

It depends.

Some people will eat a certain food and break out. Others will eat the same food and not.

Some people will take flax and see huge improvements, others won't.

You just need to know where you are genetically predisposed into having weak areas and pay attention. If alcohol is a weak spot for you then great! Drinking is bad for your health and you will be healthier in the long run compared to your binge drinking friends!

A drink here and there isn't bad (2 or 3 max) 1 time a week or so. But most people go beyond this when they drink.

Just be smart.

I think if you drink enough, all the alcohol kills the bacteria. Here is a graph:

|Intensity of breakout

|____________|_________ Amount of alcohol

........................X

Drink amount X or more for no breakouts! YAY!

"'Well,' said George, 'we'll have a big vegetable patch and a rabbit hutch and chickens. And when it rains in the winter, we'll just say the hell with goin' to work, and we'll build up a fire in the stove and set around it an' listen to the rain comin' down on the roof...'" BAM!!!
