‘Avoid’ three drinks that make your skin look older – ‘Number three is a real surprise’

Love said: “Alcohol ages your skin. Primarily, it does it by dehydrating the skin. Alcohol dehydrates the body, therefore dehydrates the skin and can make you look older.

“Alcohol also ages the brain and ages the body. Alcohol is harmful to the gut, [and] certainly harmful to the liver. Alcohol impairs the brain-gut connection and alcohol is directly harmful to your brain and your sleep.

“All of those things make alcohol extremely damaging to your skin and to your whole body.”


Less surprising than alcohol, the popular beverage is loaded with sugars that spike your blood glucose.

Love explained that this could increase inflammation, which is one of the primary causes of ageing and ageing of the skin.

He added: “Don’t get me started on diet soda. Diet soda is even worse for you.”


While coffee is packed with some promising health benefits, including being good for your brain and gut bacteria, caffeine is a diuretic. Love said: “That means it dehydrates you. So, caffeine can dehydrate the body and it can dehydrate the skin and make you look older.

“Now, I’m not saying don’t drink coffee ever again. If you do like coffee or drinks that contain coffee – and many of them are very healthy for the brain and the body – make sure you drink plenty of water and that can ensure that caffeine is not only healthy for you but also your skin looks great as well.”
