Alcohol, Caffeine, and Your Acne
Posted By: Lindsay Schroeder Posted In: Get Rid of Acne Date Posted: January 12th, 2012 Comments: 4

Are you one of those people who likes to get the day started with some hot coffee? Do you like to wind down after a long day at work with some wine after dinner? If you do both those things, you’re certainly not alone. They are part of many people’s daily routines. But if you want to Get Rid of Acne you may need to change your habits. Studies have found that both coffee and alcohol can have adverse effects on your skin health.

It’s not so much the ingredients present that cause acne outbreaks, but rather how your body responds to them. For example, if you want to get rid of acne, you’ll have to reduce or eliminate stimulants as a whole from your diet. It’s not specifically the caffeine. When you consume stimulants, you’re encouraging your glands to produce more oil than they should. The combination of the oil clogging your pores and the increased stress that stimulants cause can make you have an outbreak.

While you may think that alcohol should be good for you because it lowers your stress, it actually does your skin harm. Alcohol disrupts your sleep, which is believed to be one of the causes of acne. It also reduces the size of your pores, making them more susceptible to clogging. Cutting caffeine and alcohol from your diet is an important first step when you want to get rid of acne.

    Random Out breaks are sometimes normal because of the about of energy you have in a day, if you are always tired you are going to show it with the amount of acne not only on your face but also around you entire body. You have to keep up your energy and keep up with a good steady amount of sleep! Have some time to relax for yourself!

    I drink coffee and I don’t break out, at least I don’t think so. How else am I suppossed to wake myself up in the morning if I can’t drink coffee?

    Wow, coffee addicts keep surprising me! how did you wake up when you were a kid?

    my suggestion is that you should try drinking a big glass of most natural orange juice (ie. no sugar) you can find. Vitamin C will wake you up a lot and do other good things to you.

    But the catch is to think you”need” something to do anything! You cannot “need” coffee or our race would never have existed. You can only be addicted to it and believe crazy things about your needs.

    Sure it has a pleasant taste, etc, but if you cling to its stimulating effects, you’re no better than the street addicts who shoot cocaine in their veins!

    Once you stop needing it and someone asks if you want a cup of coffee, you will actually hear: “would you like a cup of blemish?”.
