Dehydration is the first side effect since alcohol draws all the water out of the skin. Alcohol affects every mucous membrane, including the skin, the pancreas, and the liver, causing a great deal of harm to the skin. 

Because alcohol is a diuretic, it aggressively removes water from the body, dramatically reducing the body’s water content, and ultimately leading to dehydration.

The lavender oil helps cleanse your skin and lessen redness and irritation.

A significant difference in the skin can be seen between a woman of the same age who has drunk for 20 or 30 years and one who hasn’t at all. The dehydration damage can cause the appearance of wrinkled skin, which can make you appear 10 years older.

One of the best strategies to lessen eye and facial puffiness is to sleep slightly elevated with two pillows under your head. This is because if your head is lying flat, fluids tend to gather under your eyes, which can result in dark circles under your eyes

Do not forget to moisturize your under-eye area as a part of your skincare routine. You can use a good moisturizer from Femica or a good eye cream for the purpose.

The greatest strategy to reduce your intake of sugar when consuming alcohol is to switch to flavored sparkling water from mixers that are sweetened with sugar. Simple syrup is a common ingredient in cocktails. There are simple syrups without sugar that you can use in place of sugar if you’re at home.

Following a Skin Care Routine- Will That Help?

natural skin care tips

Yes, of course! Everyone should practice healthy skincare habits, regardless of whether they often consume alcohol or not. It’s a skin-vestment! To refill the water levels in your cells and get glowing skin, you want to look for humectants, which function best when applied to damp skin and suck moisture from the air into your skin. 

Utilize Femica skincare products such as face serums and moisturizers. Face serums with hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and panthenol, which are soothing and incredibly nourishing (Vitamin B5), will help you combat the negative effects of alcohol on your skin.

Don’t Forget to Take Supplements and a Healthy Diet!

Alcohol can deplete the body’s supply of vitamin A, which is essential for cell growth. 

Your diet is a bank account. Good food choices are great investments. Therefore, by incorporating a healthy diet and a daily supplement from Femica wellness products, you can aid in promoting the cell regeneration process that alcohol consumption has impeded. 

Vitamins C, E, B1, B6, B2, and B3 as well as Omega 3 are additional dietary supplements that might assist in re-establishing the balance of your skin.
