Who has started Christmas 🎄 celebrations and has wine face? Do YOU have Wine face? 🍷 NOW , this is from drinking too much wine.. 🌟Typical symptoms: Pronounced lines or redness between the eyes, droopy eyelids, enlarged pores, dehydrated skin with feathery lines across cheeks, reddish cheeks and nose, deep nasolabial folds. I call this 'wine face' because these characteristics are so distinctive of women who enjoy a glass or two on most nights of the week, but the truth is these ageing characteristics can be triggered by any kind of alcohol. Alcohol dehydrates the skin, which worsens the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The deeply ageing nasolabial lines, which run from nose to mouth, can lift and lighten as soon as you stop drinking and become rehydrated. Alcohol is high in sugar, which damages the protein collagen – vital for keeping skin elastic – causing enlarged pores and droopy eyelids. According to face mapping, the space between the eyes is associated with the liver, and in my clinic I've noticed women whose livers struggle to process alcohol tend to have deep lines or redness between the brows (another sign of liver stress is a purple hue to the tongue). Alcohol is known to inhibit the action of the enzyme that the body uses to fight the skin-destroying inflammatory process, so a couple of glasses of wine could be enough to allow the inflammatory process to take over, resulting in highly coloured cheeks and a red nose. This can be exacerbated by the fact alcohol (like hot drinks and spicy food) can cause the delicate capillaries of the cheeks and nose to dilate, drawing blood to the surface of the skin. 🌟🌟🌟Solution to 🍷 face🌟🌟 – switch to spirits (tequila, vodka or gin)mixed with water and add 🥒 and lime or 🍋 to your drink to add flavour – healthyflora probiotics to prevent bad bacteria fermentation – B famous ( Dr. Nigma supplement) take one per day with food ( alcohol depletes B vitamins) – immortal skin collagen powder : 3 teaspoons per day in water to help rebuild your collagen – Dr. Nigma serum number one and creme number one layered 💦 drink water with a sachet of electrolytes to help absorb your fluids..
This is every wine lovers nightmare! Talib calls this the ‘wine face’ because the characteristics are distinctive of women who enjoy a glass of two on most nights of the week. But she notes these ageing characteristics can be triggered by any kind of alcohol.
Symptoms: Pronounced lines or redness between the eyes, droopy eyelids, enlarged pores, dehydrated skin with feathery lines across cheeks, reddish cheeks and nose, deep nasolabial folds.
How to combat: Switch to spirits (tequila, vodka or gin) mix with water and add cucumber, lime or lemon. You can also consume skin collagen to help rebuild your collagen.
If you’re experiencing skin and bloating issue, perhaps it’s time to reconsider your diet intake. It simply means that your body is sensitive to gluten.
Symptoms: Blemishes on the forehead, puffy cheeks, bloated, red spots and dark blemishes on the skin.
How to combat: Avoid taking food that contains wheat, barley, oats, kamut and rye.

Do you have #SugarFace? 🍭🍩 Sugar is an inflammatory food which adds to more #inflammation within the body. Sugar also triggers a process known as #glycation in which excess glucose in the bloodstream attaches itself to #collagen, a protein that helps keep skin firm and youthful looking. Over time, glycation causes the skin to sag and form fine lines and #wrinkles. #ReverseTheSignsOfAgeing #youngerskinstartsinthegut
Bad news for all you dessert freaks, well you already know this – but sugar does no good to your skin! Talib says sugar is an inflammatory food which causes more inflammation within the body. It leads to glycation which is a process which excess glucose molecules cling to your collagen. This will then cause the skin to sag and form fine lines.
Symptoms: Fine lines, wrinkles, spots, pasty skin, saggy eyes.
How to combat: Slow down on the sugar. Moderation is key!
If you’re intolerant of lactose but still consume dairy products, your skin is about to suffer. Because your body is struggling to digest the proteins in milk, it, in turn, alerts the immune system to release inflammatory chemicals.
Symptoms: Swollen eyelids, under-eye bags, dark circles and acne.
How to combat: Take Evening Primrose Oil for its anti-inflammatory effects.
