“Three,” Juli went on, “I drink a lot of water. I feel like your skin shows that if you drink a lot of water, it shows it. The fourth one, and it’s going to be the kicker, I don’t drink alcohol. I feel like if you put toxins in your body, it shows and so I do not drink alcohol and I think that that really truly shows on your skin.”
How does alcohol affect the skin?
Alcohol has a number of effects on the skin, some of which could make you look older. The main factor is that alcohol dehydrates the skin. When the skin is dehydrated it looks less vibrant and wrinkled or can look puffy. Alcohol can also make some skin problems worse, including rosacea and psoriasis.
It can also leave eyes feeling dry, which may affect their appearance. If you are drinking, it’s important to drink lots of water too.
