Cocktails, white wine, beer, and all spirits have in common a particular characteristic that “ruins” the skin: their vasodilator effect. Consequently, the skin reddens more easily and dryes out almost completely, becoming very delicate and irritated.

Other than its short term effects, alcoholic drinks are bad for the skin also for another very important reason: it accelerates aging! Yes, spirits in particular increase the production of free radicals, which are responsible for skin aging.

These are the most harmful alcoholic drinks for your skin:

Mojito, because of the excess sugar, which causes skin inflammation; Margarita, that is very strong and full of sugar. It has mohito’s same effects. Tequila, Gin &Tonic and Vodka&Tonic also cause skin irritation and redness.

Beer is not among these, because it is the less alcoholic drink. Be careful, though, because it causes a lot of dehydration. Instead, red wine seems to have numerous benefits for our body
