Alcohol Vs Acne?

Recommended Posts

Hello there,

When ever i drink beer, i always seem to get a flare up shortly after . Anyone else experience this???

Im not sure whether this is purely coincidental, or if they are linked in anyway.

Obviously this isnt good, because I like drinking! :dance:

If I stick to triple distilled vodka I actually find an improvement in skin. I do drink water between drinks or mix it in. I can do half a big bottle (0.5 Litre) of vodka with water with no ill effects, not even loss of sleep. Whereas whiskey or any other booze has congeners (poisons) which are expelled thru skin and give me a hangover and screw my skin up if I go on a bender. Vodka has practically no congeners, in fact Smirnoff blue label is as clear as water, in fact clearer!

Cheers :)

i dunno, it may agrivate acne coz the toxins have 2 b released throu ur pores in ur skin.....if u worried id just drink lots of water 2 flush ur kidneys. But neway my point is i dont think it really triggers a breakout, i think the acne that forms wudda formed neway, coz it has neva reli affected me and once ive started the regimen and nearly got clear it doesnt make ne difference at all......thats with both spirits and lots of beer :P

If you wake up with a breakout the night after youve been drinking, I don't think this can be alcholol related. This is because skin is one of the last things to be afftected by what you eat and drink and it should take a couple of days to feel the effect of drinking, if indeed it does at all. :)

After a heavy night drinking, my skin actually looks better - i don't know why, i don't even wash it.

I stopped drinking for about 2 weeks and my acne got worse!

alcohol affects the liver. and if the liver is in bad nick then so will your skin.if you can't stop drinking alcohol,then drink more water daily,its the only thing that will help.
