Alcohol: Foe

"It's no big surprise that alcohol gives your skin a mini-hangover by making it dry, irritated, and by sometimes even causing vasodilation, otherwise known as swollen blood vessels," says New York City-based nutritional counselor, Amy Nelms.

"Drinking too much of it can even result in the loss of vitamin A, an important antioxidant that supports skin health and overall elasticity." So skip the bar and stay hydrated with water, seltzer, or your skin's best beverage bet, green tea.
