Alcohol and acne

Hey, I am on Doxycycline and Retin a, is it ok for me to drink 2-3 times a week. Does alcohol actually have any effects on acne. Thanks.

Re: Alcohol and acne

In a round about way yes it does. Your liver has regulate your hormones and process toxins in your body. If it it overburdened ie, bad diet, alcohol, you get the idea, it will push the toxins out through the skin, and you get acne, and if its not regulating your hormones well you will get cystic or hormonal acne.
