Alcohol and Your Skin Marietta GA

Most people know how alcohol consumption can lead to addiction, DUI offense, mental illnesses, and liver disease. Yet, do you know about the adverse effects that alcohol can cause on your skin?

Regular alcohol consumption can cause your skin to suffer consequences that you may not be aware of — dehydration and inflammation.

Alcohol affects the mucous membranes of the body. Dehydration occurs because alcohol effectively extracts fluid from the skin, leaving it dry and wrinkled over time.

There is a histamine reaction that occurs when people consume alcohol. Alcohol triggers a systemic inflammation in the entire body, noticed in the skin by red flushing of the face. For those who drink alcohol regularly, if this inflammation occurs on a consistent basis, it can lead to lingering and prominent facial redness.

The most important thing to know when it comes to alcohol consumption is that moderation is vital. Alcohol will take its toll on the entire body when consumed in high quantities over time. Organs throughout the body are directly impacted, and you need to keep in mind that your skin is your body’s largest organ.

Water is your body’s best friend. When you do choose to drink alcohol, you should follow up by drinking a full glass of water. Not only will this help to get the alcohol out of your system faster, but it will also add needed hydration back to your skin.

At Kayal Dermatology, we want to encourage you to take the best possible care of your skin in all aspects of life. Please be mindful of your alcohol intake and how it can negatively affect many aspects of your life, including your skin. Kayal Dermatology is committed to helping patients achieve beautiful, healthy skin through wise lifestyle habits that will help retain vibrant, youthful skin.

Jennifer M.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Eve L.

Love this place! Everyone is so caring, and very helpful in each way possible. Highly recommend this place for skin care and even skin cancer!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.

Lisa W.

PA Brown is very attentive to my son's needs. I have not had any difficulty getting appointments when needed. I think this practice provides excellent service. I definitely recommend Kayal Dermatology for all of your skin needs.
