The four signs in your skin that suggest YOU'RE drinking too much alcohol


Alcohol has also been linked to inflammation, so if you have particularly red skin you might be able to blame alcohol.

Dr Liakas explained: “This is bad news when it comes to skin health since chronic inflammation has been linked to skin conditions and noticeable skin ageing.

“Extensive inflammation to the skin can create a reaction leading to the redness and flushing of the skin.

“If this becomes consistent, it can become prominently red and noticeably irritated.

“This is due to the alcohol causing blood vessels under the surface of the skin to widen, which allows more blood to flow, producing the tell-tale flushed colour in the skin.”

With prolonged alcohol consumption it may cause facial telangiectasia- fine thread veins on the nose and cheeks due to broken blood vessels.

The doctor added: “It is important to note that if this is not treated properly, it can lead to the onset of acne and rosacea.”
