Billions of people around the world like to kick back with a nice glass of wine or a couple of shots with some friends… but is your drinking habit damaging the health of your skin?

The short answer is yes, and the long answer is also yes.

Drinking alcohol actually dilates your pores, not only making them larger but also making you much more prone to blackheads and whiteheads. If not treated, those seemingly small skin imperfections could become much worse; many people who drink regularly have inflamed, cystic, painful acne that leads to permanent scarring.

Alcohol causes harm to your liver and leaves a build-up of toxins in the tissue of your liver. Your skin is the easiest way out, so your liver filters out the toxins and sends them out through the skin, causing terrible breakouts.

Alcohol not only causes hangovers but can also make your skin puffy and give you dark under-eye circles.

So, maybe skip the extra glass?
