What TWO glasses of wine a day can do to your face in ten years
DailyMail ^ | 20th October 2011 | ANNA MAGEE

Posted on 10/20/2011 4:23:35 AM PDT by Daffynition

Despite the warnings, I never used to worry too much that my lifestyle might one day show on my face. After all, there was always make-up, moisturiser, even a touch of Botox as the years advanced. Surely my guilty habits couldn’t make that much difference to my looks, could they?

And what habits would those be? Well, like most women, I crave chocolate and have been known to scoff three bars of Galaxy in one go if I desperately need a sugar fix. I smoked in my 20s and, although I officially quit at 30, I still succumb to the odd puff after a night on the merlot.

[skip]

But now, at the age of 42, a fascinating experiment has made me rethink the whole way I live. For I have seen the future of my face. Or, rather, I have been given a glimpse of how it would look in ten years if I continue to ply my body with alcohol and excess sugar, or take up smoking again. The results were not a pretty sight and will serve as a stark warning to women who regularly enjoy a couple of glasses of wine a night or the odd sugary doughnut, and think it won’t do them any harm.

So, the article doesn't use actual observed evidence. Rather, it conjectures what the author might be transformed into if she doses herself with 7,000 glasses of wine in 10 years.

Also, note the caption typo/wording error "how she will love..." instead of "how she will look..." Do they not have editors at international news agencies?

This article says you can smoke and red wine {Merlot] will decrease the effects of smoking:

**Acute smoking significantly impairs vessels' natural ability to relax, or vasodilate. Red wine, with or without alcohol, decreases the harmful effect of smoking on the endothelium - layer of cells that provide a friction-reducing lining in lymph vessels, blood vessels, and the heart.**

Early symptom of the zombie plague.

Or maybe it's the late nights with her lawyer, since she now knows her husband plans to divorce her if she shows any signs of aging.

Reminds me of the 50 year old (we'll call him Jack) that goes to the doctor for a physical. The doctor scolded Jack and said "that's it, no more scotch, no more cigars, no more late night TV because you need more sleep and no more womanizing."

Jack started to see the light and asked the doctor: "Will I live longer?"

The doctor replied: "No, but it will feel like an eternity."

Exactly. Many of my friends are in their 60s and 70s, and - since they're pleasant women with good character - there is nothing wrong with their faces.

It's only those who try to defeat nature, or those who have been awful people for 60+ years, who end up looking Undead.

She’s 42 years old and shocked to see she will look older in ten years?

Says she’s glad she save up smoking 12 years ago, but she still smokes after being out drinking.

Typical puff piece (literally).

The article is pure BS. First, wine is good for you in reasonable quantities. Two glasses is reasonable. Second, diet and exercise are important as well. Sit around every night and eat chips and watch TV with no wine and compare that to the person that has two glasses of wine and eats meats, fruits and vegetables and hits the gym 3-5 days a week.

This picture is an “artists conception” exercise and is so ridiculous that the article does not even deserve our time for discussion. It belongs in the Sun.

She’s cute, btw...

Not that I look to Hollywierd for anything, but for sake of comparison and conversation, if you look at Betty White and Debby Reynolds, I think they have aged beautifully.

Who cares what this pig might look like in ten years?

Even Laz would need two NOTTLES of wine before he'd even consider hitting it.

My advice to her is drink more, that way she won't know how ugly she is.

Stay stoned, get a sign, join the "Occupiers", you might get lucky.

One exception. Red wine is high in purines. If you suffer from gout or gouty arthritis, white wine would be better.

BTW, I think the photo comparison in the OP may be accurate if, instead of a couple of glasses of wine, she drank a half bottle of scotch every night. Of course, part and parcel to that would be that it would imply not much exercise and a relatively poor diet. ;-)

A glass or two of wine (or other alcoholic drink) is good for your circulation.

Now, a bottle or two a night is a different story. Reference the above pics of Amy Winehouse.

When my granfather was in his 70s, his cardiologist told him to give up his nightly glass of Scotch. Grandpa's answer? He fired the doc, and continued to happily drink his scotch to the ripe old age of 87.

Pure BS and I’m not buying it.

I’ve been to Italy. I’ve seen 50 year old Italian women in milan who drank wine with every meal, and they don’t look anything like her idiotic photoshop. In fact they look more healthy than American women the same age.

Don’t buy this crap.
