With your Fark handle, you might want to rethink that.

Welp from personal experience and most of the last 20 years me being a heavy drinker. I'm gonna need to call bs.

But you use alcohol to preserve things!

Although that might be why I look like a fetal pig in a jar.

It's "alcohol." That's it. And it doesn't do shiat to you. What it does do is encourage dehydration and work your liver a bit.

Read "don't binge drink, make sure you stay hydrated, and you're farking fine." ETNT needs to DIAF.

*doesn't do shiat to your skin by ingesting it. Seriously, I hate that farking site.

I assumed it was all the smoking. Seems more obvious than booze.

ETNT is a garbage site and ought to be blacklisted by the admins but this article may have a point:

And moderate drinking is associated with longevity. Not that FARKers would know moderation if it smacked them in the face like a hardwood floor.

I have this drawing book on faces by Burne Hogarth. He had a sample Anatomy Guy face drawn in stages from childhood to old age.

Holy crap, what he says a 40 year old should look like is more like a modern 50-60 year old. By the time you get to 70-80 they look like 90+.

Really depends on the human and (as far as I can tell) how much time you spend outdoors in the weather.  I've seen people that take care of themselves just fine that look 60 when they're 49, I've seen 80 year olds that look 50-some.  Genetic lottery and whether or not you're forced to spend time in the elements

I believe that most of us farkers surpassed what was looked at in the study, and have just pickled ourselves and then will hit the wall like an aging Asian woman

And according to research, one of the worst drinks that ages your skin faster is alcohol because of its effects on your hydration and liver health, which are major factors in the health of your skin as you get older.

Ok, but which drink is worst?  I'm headed out to the liquor store and want to be healthy.

As long as it's at 60. I plan to die then anyways.

So if you eat salmon (a fatty fish with Omega 3s) on buckwheat blinis with your vodka, does that negate the aging effects of the alcohol?

Or I mix gin with 100% fruit juice full of vitamins. Does that work as well? I mean, there's hydration and antioxidants.

You know why those shiatty health smoothies are green? All that absinthe.

  I think I read this article somewhere about a Russian woman who drank Vodka her entire life since childhood.... Only drank Vodka... Lived to be 100+...  And while I am sure what it did to her skin, the doctors commented at her autopsy, that she had internal organs that appeared to be those of a 20 year old.  She had essentially pickled her organs and just died of old age....

Here is a picture of her at 96...

Ah. It explains why you can't taste the kale and wheatgrass in them.

Yeah, it's the alcohol aging our skin, not the years of sitting at the bar surrounded by cigarette smoke (back when that was a thing)

Never been much of a bar person myself, but my skin is definitely a decade older than me just because of my own smoking, and the 5 years or so when I was in a poker league, in a 2 car garage with 40 people, probably 38 of us chain smoking from dusk till dawn

Alcohol is not "a" drink.

Anyway, I'll just keep using argan oil for my skin.

I think we're safe. It says large amounts over time. Nothing about large amounts every time.
