The honest truth: How alcohol affects your skin

Hell-o spring! Taking off to the tropics any time soon? This summer, while you’re sitting on the beach, sipping on a cocktail, take heed of what you may be doing to your skin. You know that you need to protect your skin from the sun’s harsh rays, but what about that fruity daiquiri in your hand?

Alcohol’s effect on your skin is similar to its effect on the rest of your body: it steals the good (hydration) and leaves the bad (dryness, bloating, redness). When you drink alcohol, it hinders the production of vasopressin — an anti-diuretic hormone. This causes your kidneys to work extra hard to remove excess water from your system, sending water to your bladder (and you to the restroom!) instead of your organs. Don’t forget that your skin is the largest organ in the body — and drinking a lot of alcohol leaves it dehydrated.

When skin is dry, it is much more likely to wrinkle and make you look older than you are. Alcohol also robs your body of Vitamin A which is essential for cell renewal and turnover, so your skin could take on a dull gray appearance. Staying hydrated will obviously have opposing effects: smoothing out wrinkles, leaving your skin looking bright, young and fresh. Drinking water is the only way to combat the drying effects of alcohol, hydrating from within.

Being so depleted of vital nutrients, electrolytes and fluids, your skin often shows signs of bloating and swelling. When you’re lacking what you need, your body will store whatever it can get — wherever it can, and any water you take in will cause your tissues to swell.

Alcohol can also affect preexisting conditions like rosacea, causing it to worsen or flare up more often. Alcohol increases your blood flow, often causing blood vessels in your face to dilate (sometimes permanently) and often burst, leaving behind broken capillaries and red spots that are difficult to get rid of.

What’s worse, drinking too much doesn’t only affect the appearance of your skin, it will dehydrate your hair, making it more prone to breaking and split ends. Weak, brittle hair is just about as ideal as premature wrinkling, don’t you think?

The Effects of alcohol on the Body

Even a small amount of alcohol has an effect on your body. When you drink, alcohol is absorbed into your bloodstream and distributed throughout your body. A tiny amount of alcohol exits your body in your urine and your breath.

You absorb alcohol more slowly if you eat, especially if the food is high in fat. However, if you drink more than your body can process, you’ll get drunk. How quickly alcohol is metabolized depends on your size and gender, among other things.

Alcohol consumption causes physical and emotional changes that can do great harm to your body. The long-term effects of alcohol abuse are many, putting your health in serious jeopardy and endangering your life.

Alcohol must pass through the liver. Chronic alcohol abuse overwhelms the liver so it can’t break down harmful substances

The King of Alcohol Beers

Budweiser, with a brand value of $21 billion, is one of the most valuable businesses in the world

Budweiser is the King of Beers, (it says so on the can)

Brewed by our original all natural process using the choicest Hops, Rice and Best Barley Malt. This is the famous Budweiser beer. We know of no brand produced by any other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood Aging produces a taste, a smoothness and a drinkability you will find in no other beer at any price

This is a sham. There’s no mention of alcohol. Instead we are told its Natural, Smooth, Drinkable. Made out of Hops, Rice and Barley Malt. They stop short of saying its good for you. Instead they create an aura of fresh, golden, thirst quenching.

Budweiser is a beer, the key constituent of which is 4.3% alcohol. That is why people buy it. And alcohol is a toxic, addictive, destructive drug with intoxicating effects.

Like all big alcohol producers Budweiser know this so well. They know how damaging it is to health. By keeping that information to themselves, Budweiser are protecting their wealth at the expense of the consumer
