Does alcohol affect our skin?

“Yes” according to Dr. David Colbert, founder of New York Dermatology Group. “Alcohol is a hepatoxin, meaning it specifically damages the liver. It’s a toxin to the cells that detoxify your body” “Alcohol also contains congeners, chemical substances produced during fermentation process that contribute to liquors’ unique tastes and smell. Congeners are the main cause of hangovers, so the more congeners in your liquor, the worse your hangover…and the worse you look in the morning”

“On top of that, all alcohol dehydrates the skin. This means your skin will appear less plump and fresh the next morning”

– Dr. Debra Jaliman, author of “Skin Rules: Trade Secrets From a Top New York Dermatologist”
