I used to love drinking red/white wine, Vodka cranberry, pineapple, Tequila, Patron - don't get me wrong they were good to enjoy once in a while. So I stopped drinking at the beginning of 2014 and my experiment so far has turned out to be a long term experiment - so it seems. Results so far: Feeling better than ever, energised, less pores and I feel amazing. Beauty complexion improved as compared to my early 20s.

So what exactly are the benefits? See below for the major benefits of foregoing drinking:

1. Your eyes become brighter, less dark circles, bags, anything that makes you look tired.

The puffiness reduces and your complexion looks much healthier as compared to when you drink. When you do drink, the alcohol absorbs into your bloodstream allowing more toxins and wastes to go into your system! Minus alcohol, you will have less red eyes, less dark circles and puffiness to your eyes.

2. Healthier looking skin, smooth and shiny complexion that you don't get naturally when consuming alcohol.

I'm talkin' about damaging your livers as it becomes overloaded by wastes and toxins...totally unecessary if you're trying to be healthy here. The more water (H2O) that you consume, the more you can flush out of your system, hence healthy looking skin.

3. Feeling more shaped from face to hips to body to face again.

Face will feel younger and those "flabby" bits will slowly fade/sink whatever you want to call it. Yes you need to exercise as well to achieve a more sculptured look. Alcohol leads to bloating and making you always feel puffy..mainly because alcohol has may calories and the more you don't burn this, the more toxins will stay in your body.

This of course leads to the next point.....

4. Lose those kilos!

It's called "Liquid fat" for a reason and knowing how much you consume is really sometimes too hard to keep count right? After all alcohol makes you lose concentration? It takes more to burn off the fat... but with me I chose to abstain from it completely because I would rather exercise and don't waste those intense sessions of working out by drinking again.

5. Less wrinkles on the forehead and eye areas....

Did you know that alcohol is extremely dehydrating and hence you need replenish by drinking lots of water to keep yourself hydrated and more balanced. This effectively creates more wrinkles because your skin is asking to be hydrated so it loses water, hence the more sagging of the skin.

The choice is yours though!
