Stop Red Face After Alcohol - OTC Vs Herbal
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A surprising number of people have problems drinking alcohol, because whenever they do, their face flushes red, and they often heat up. In public, this can be very embarrassing, particularly if you are hanging out with people that you don’t know very well. Some people can even make fun of people who have red faces when they drink alcohol. To stop your red face after alcohol, there are a few solutions online that some people find effective.

Some people think that getting a red face after alcohol is the result of being embarrassed, but this isn’t the case. There is actually a genetic factor that causes people to get red after they have had a little bit to drink.

There is an enzyme in your body that plays an important role in breaking down alcohol. The enzyme itself is ALDH2, and it doesn’t work properly in everybody. For some people, especially people who are of Asian descent, this is the case. It means that their body is not able to break down one of the compounds that is produced as alcohol is broken down. This compound accumulates and leads to a red face, as well as other problems.

For example, many people who get red faced after drinking alcohol also find that they can’t have many drinks before they feel to sick, and they might find that they are light headed or dizzy as soon as they begin drinking.

All of these issues can make it very hard for sufferers to enjoy themselves socially when there is alcohol involved.

Some people believe that if you eat bread before you go out drinking, this will soak up the alcohol and prevent the red face from occurring. This approach is unlikely to be effective simply because eating bread doesn’t really do anything to alcohol. Although it may soak up some of the alcohol in your stomach, this doesn’t actually make any difference because the alcohol is still absorbed into your bloodstream, it just goes through the bread first.

Another approach that some people use to stop red face after alcohol is antacids. This is actually a very popular approach, because it is one of the few ways of getting past red face that works for a lot of people. It doesn’t work for everybody, but many people say that this is the only way for them to be able to enjoy social occasions without having to stress. The solution is to simply take a few antacids before consuming your first alcoholic beverage. It requires that you have a supply of antacids on hand, which some people find inconvenient.

Others look to herbal remedies to get rid of their red face. This requires a bit of research and experimentation, but many prefer the use of natural methods rather than 'popping pills'. I've read that some people can actually build a tolerance to the antacids, which is another downside. The downside of this particular approach is of course that you have to prepare the mixture and consume before drinking. Well, you know what they say, 'no pain, no gain!'.
