DRINK LESS ALCOHOL
alcohol consumption can affect your skin’s appearance and even result in aging your skin. It can dehydrate, inflame, and, over time, age and wrinkle your skin. Due to dehydration, your skin is deprived of moisture and nutrients. There’s a huge amount of damage to the skin that occurs; alcohol affects any mucous membrane, from the pancreas and liver to the skin. The first effect is dehydration, as it actually takes all the fluid out of the skin.
Tobacco contains nicotine, a highly addictive chemical. Tobacco smoke also contains thousands of harmful substances that are toxic to cells, including skin cells.
Smoking affects collagen and elastin, which are elastic fibers that keep the skin plump and firm.
Tobacco smoke extracts cause oxidative stress in skin fibroblasts, impair collagen formation, and increase the expression of an enzyme that degrades collagen.
