At Nourish we know all too well the negative effects that alcohol and late nights can have on the skin but we also know that Christmas is a time to party so here are our top tips to achieve and maintain a healthy, radiant complexion this festive season using Nourish London’s highly effective, vegan, organic and cruelty-free skincare.

As we celebrate and party in the run up to Christmas, we know this can take its toll on our skin.  It is perhaps time to think about one easy way to cut our alcohol intake?

Here Dr Pauline Hili, one of the UK’s top organic skincare experts, Founder of Nourish London and Fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry reveals the 5 main ways that alcohol when applied daily in our  skincare can damage the skin:

  1. Ethanol will interact with the skin’s natural lipids and destroy their structure.  Damage to this lipid layer results in the skin being less able to protect itself from the external  environment leading to dryness and flakiness.
  2. Ethanol effects the natural skin bacteria that help keep the skin looking healthy.
  3. For sensitive skin types alcohol will increase the irritation potential of the skin dramatically.
  4. Can create localised inflammation that results in redness, dullness and, over the longer term,  enlarged pores.
  5. Ethanol can increase skins permeability to damaging chemicals.

Dr Pauline Hili adds: “Here at Nourish London we do not use any ethanol in our products. It was one of our golden formulation rules whilst developing the range. Although, as a formulator I acknowledge that ethanol applied topically in certain medicated antiseptics has a place, for everyday skin care, the negatives outweigh any positives and that is why we choose to formulate Nourish London without it. By avoiding using ethanol in our products, it also means we have just a little more room to include vitamins and minerals that have a real nutritional value to the skin.”
