I woke up this morning with a ‘wine spot’. A red zit right by my nose. Nice. I find that if I drink a little too regularly my skin suffers, and expresses itself freely in the odd unsightly blemish. I don’t understand the mechanism behind it, but it is really annoying.
I feel like I am regressing into my spotty teens, except I am now what is know affectionately as a ‘lightweight’, drinking way under the UK government guidelines of 3 to 4 units a day for men (according to drinkaware
) . 3 to 4 units is actually quite a lot (4 x 25ml whiskey shots). I probably only have the equivalent of 125ml 12.5% to 14.5 % ABV wine every night (a small glass or about 1.6 to 1.8 units). Just enough to wash down my beans on toast.
So anyway I ate some muesli with lashings of milk as a healthy antidote ...
