Hangovers_Are_Bad_For_Your_Skin

The morning after a night of alcohol is not only painful for your head, but your skin also takes a beating. The effects of alcohol can be visible for a much longer time than people think on their skin, and can effect how it looks for a month!

Your skin’s worst enemy

Our skin is our bodies’ largest organ, and it takes a battering every time we drink alcohol, which is a hepatotoxin.

This means it’s a toxin to the cells that detoxify your body (i.e. the liver), so our heavy nights show in our skin.

Factor in its dehydrating properties (also responsible for that ‘cat litter tray’ taste in our mouths the morning after) the chemical congeners and high sugar content, and it’s no wonder our skin holds a grudge.
