The effects of alcohol on the skin

Ethyl alcohol is the most consumed psychoactive substance in the world, in addition to being the most used as a starting substance for the youngest. When we drink alcohol, ethanol is absorbed in small amounts in the mouth and esophagus. Then in moderate amounts in the stomach and large intestine, with greater absorption in the small intestine. Once absorbed, it passes into the bloodstream until it reaches the liver. Where it is metabolized in order to break it down and eliminate it from the body. This ethanol in the blood and the metabolites formed in the liver produce toxic effects of alcohol on the body, also affecting the skin. Frequent and prolonged intake of this substance causes both acute and chronic adverse effects of alcohol on health (nutritional, neurological, hepatic, and teratogenic).
