What’s the impact of Cinco de Mayo partying on the skin?

What’s the impact of Cinco de Mayo partying on the skin? Posted on May 3, 2012 at 11:20 am Cinco de Mayo… may be a fun holiday, but it’s not so great for your skin! Spicy food and alcoholic drinks are Vasodilators, which means blood vessels expand and blood rushes to the surface of your skin causing flushing and redness on your face, neck and chest. (I definitely see these noticeable changes on my fair skin!) During extreme over indulgence or regular drinking, sometimes capillaries or veins break on the surface of the skin that are only repairable by expensive laser surgery. So if you drink, do so in moderation, and take the lesser spicy foods versus the extremes to keep your skin healthy, happy and resilient! And if you have overindulged, make sure to bring a product along that will interrupt the inflammatory cascade to prevent permanent damage with ingredients like peptides! Stay happy and healthy this holiday and enjoy!
