Organic, Vegan & Non-Toxic Facials & Skincare by Facial Lounge

why we don’t serve alcohol at facial lounge

So many of our guests suggest we serve champagne during treatments like many other facial locations. While we are all about letting our hair down and having a good time, we are also passionate about reducing toxin exposure wherever possible. Ultimately, we do not serve alcohol because it actually exacerbates many skin conditions like eczema, acne, and dryness. We wanted to break it down a bit further for you, however, so here are the four main ways alcohol can worsen skin conditions.

4 Ways Alcohol Can Cause Skin Problems

Alcohol Dehydrates

Alcohol dehydrates us in two ways. First, it prevents the body from absorbing water from urine in the kidneys. Second, it acts as a diuretic, causing us to urinate more often. So our bodies are absorbing less water and peeing out twice as much. This internal dehydration can lead to dryness or cause skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and other atopic rashes to significantly worsen.

Alcohol Kills Antioxidants

Antioxidants are some of the most critical factors when it comes to maintaining skin health. They help fight against free radical damage that can cause dryness, fine lines and wrinkles, melasma, sun spots, discoloration of the skin and more. In today’s overly toxic world, we need ALL the antioxidants we can get and killing them off with unnecessary alcohol consumption just isn’t our thing.

Alcohol Creates Inflammation

Like many substances, our bodies perceive alcohol as a toxin. This sets off an immune response oftentimes leading to systemic inflammation. When our body is inflamed, fresh blood cannot flow as fluidly throughout the body and toxins begin to build up. This toxin build-up can present itself as a sudden acne breakout, skin rashes, redness, and puffiness.

Alcohol Can Hinder Detoxification

Toxic build-up in the body can be a contributing factor to many skin conditions. When our body is unable to properly eliminate toxins we begin to see the bad bacteria gang up on the good, which creates symptoms like rashes and breakouts. For those currently dealing with skin issues such as these, we strongly suggest limiting alcohol consumption as much as possible…like once a month max. Think you can’t live without that skinny margarita? Your clearer skin from reducing alcohol intake might convince you otherwise.

Are we saying you should never drink alcohol again? No! But hopefully, you can use this information to consume alcohol more consciously, especially for those who are already dealing with skin issues. Likewise, if you are or know you will be consuming alcohol, prep your body with extra hydration and antioxidants both before and after consumption. See the two posts linked below for more tips on this.

While we aren’t against alcohol intake all together, at Facial Lounge, we are committed to providing our guests with a completely non-toxic experience; one that provides deep healing for the skin, body and spirit. Rather than serve alcohol, we offer reverse osmosis alkaline water along with organic teas and tonics to support the healing process.
