Oh the wild excitement of popping the cork on a good wine, or mixing up the perfect martini. Warm and fuzzy social lubrication may well be the magic sauce that brings people together despite the typical barriers of language, religion, status, and age, but nothing comes without a price. Just what sort of beauty woes will a night of liquid courage cost you? Alcohol happens to be responsible for some of the most common beauty complaints that I hear on a daily basis. Alcohol dehydrates your skin and deprives your body of nutrients leading to tell-tale signs. Signs of frequent indulgence include:
- Tired red eyes
- Puffy bloated face and body
- Dilated blood vessels and a red face
- Dry lusterless skin
So, what is a girl to do? Women are encouraged to drink no more than 1 glass of wine or alcohol a day. Drink 2 glasses of water for every glass of alcohol and slap some chilled cucumbers on those tired eyes first thing in the morning. The dilated vessels may be permanent and need a quick blast with an IPL treatment to tone down the redness. My favorite product combination for clear eyes: drum roll please!….
Visine + Benefit’s Eye Bright= happy, clear, sinless eyes!
