Alcohol destroys your skin by staying in your system for 28 days!

It’s no secret that alcohol consumption can cause numerous diseases. But now, it has been found that heavy drinking can also take a toll on your skin. It can also worsen pre-existing skin conditions and leave you vulnerable to skin problems that pose a risk to your health, reports According to the research, consuming over 14 units of alcohol causes toxicity and immediate harm to a woman’s facial skin that is visible the next morning. Fourteen units are considered to be healthy for the average woman’s weekly alcohol limit. The scientists found that while the hangover can subside after 24 hours, the effects on the skin for a woman aged 40 can last 28 days.
Younger women bounce back faster but skin ageing on those in their 20s still lasts a couple of weeks. For men, their skin is able to cope with the effects quicker but it can still take at least a week to recover. More symptoms of heavy drinking include dark circles and puffiness around the eyes, dehydration on the forehead, chin and lips causes lines and wrinkles.
However, alcoholism is more than just a skin-deep issue in India. Already weighed down by problems such as diabetes and cardiovascular health issues, India is also facing a serious alcohol addiction problem. Although traditional Indian culture asks for abstinence from alcoholism, the reality depicts a completely different picture. Alcoholism is a serious problem that not only affects health, but also ruins livelihoods. In India, rampant alcoholism is already creating problems for the country. Most of the population has a preference towards heavy drinks instead of lighter ones like beer. According to a study published in the Lancet, more than half of those who consume alcohol, fall into the category of ‘hazardous drinking.’
