Another problem from those who are suffering from acne, is the people they are hanging around.

Does Alcohol Affect Acne?

Well my experience, told me that alchahol does not affect acne. I drank heaps of beer, carlton draught, coopers pale ale, crown lager, everything you could think of. I also drank a lot of bourbon and coke, mainly cougars and had numerous vodka and other shots such as bloody marys and long island ice teas. And although i didn’t know what was in them and how to make then i realized a simple factor that they were not affecting my acne at all. So alchahol did not affect my skin, it affected other ares of my body such as my internal organs obviously, but did not have a profound affect on my skin.

If your thinking about drinking, but worried it might affect your acne well mak a judgement call, and you decide.
