NEW YORK (WLNY) – Skincare is often a concern during the summer, but alcohol could also contribute to skin problems.

“When I bring it to their [patients'] attention they say to me, ‘Wow, you know I never thought about that,’” New York City dermatologist Dr. Ariel Ostad said.

“Conditions that are exacerbated by sweating whether it’s basically pimples on the chest, back, runners-people who are running, acne, that will get worse,” Ostad said.

Alcohol can cause even the most minor skin problems to flare up into more serious conditions, said Ostad.

“Once you really make that lifestyle change, maybe one glass of wine at night, those effects are absolutely reversible,” he said.
