Look at you … Hall of Mirrors at Palace of Versailles. For a time, my office was in an outbuilding next to Sanford House at Cherry Street for Womena drug and alcohol treatment center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. And what a difference a week makes. I can describe it in three words: eyes, hair, skin. They have lost all their color. If I quit drinking will the bags under my eyes go away?
This is because alcohol and other drugs dilate the small veins in the eyes, causing them to leak. Alcohol and drugs also cause the blood vessels in your eyes to expand, making them more prominent. Yellowing of the whites is a side effect of a compromised liver — the result of long term substance use. Puffiness, bags, and dark circles around the eyes are caused by lack of sleep, bad circulation, water retention, and overall poor health. Clear sober eyes with snowy whites are gorgeous!
And clear eyes ify good health and well being.
No amount of eye drops can create the effect. When you quit drinking the dark circles under your eyes will come back to life. Fruits like strawberries and mangoes; veggies like spinach and carrots; zinc-rich meats like turkey and chicken; and yogurt, nuts and seeds, all feed the pretty peepers you want to have.

There are many reasons why alcohol impacts hair texture and shine. Heavy drinkers and drug users rarely have a balanced diet; alcohol is a diuretic, and hair is like a tissue that needs constant nourishment and hydration. Alcohol raises estrogen levels and elevated estrogen causes hair loss. And alcohol misuse lowers levels of zinc and vitamins B and C. These are essential elements for healthy hair growth. Also, drinking alcohol causes folic acid to drop. Folic acid is vital for strong hair follicles. For gorgeous locks, eat your leafy greens. Drink lots of water and eat foods rich in zinc, like Brussels sprouts, citrus fruits, avocado, and okra.
Drug and alcohol use is very hard on the organ that filters and processes the blood as it circulates through the body. Also, alcohol depletes nutrition and electrolytes and steals good hydration from the body. Broken blood vessels, rosacea, red spots, wrinkles, puffiness and dryness are only a few of the maladies substance use can cause.
If you want to put the glow back in your sober skin, start with the inside and the obvious. Good health makes for beautiful skin and although a facial helps with enlarged pores and puffy eyes, there is no substitute for clean living. Avoid caffeine, processed foods, and sugar. Exercise, lots of water and sleep helps your skin. Add a cocktail of Vitamins A and C, Calcium, and fish oil or flaxseed oil, and you can see the difference with those bright and shining eyes you now have.
Sobriety makes you prettier. A lot of what I have described about drug and alcohol consumption is not rocket science, but it is health science. When we are actively using, we tend to forget the simple rules to good health and beauty. A while back, one of our residents was leaving treatment, and it was obvious she had spent some time on her grooming. Her bags were packed.
She had a solid aftercare plan in place. Her family was educated about the disease of addiction and were waiting to take her home. I feel ready. I feel good. She was wearing a headband over French-braided hair. And she was wearing lipstick.
