Pcos is often associated with Acne and alcohol consumption can make it worse. It can lead to hormonal imbalances, which increase sebum production, clog pores and exacerbate acne. Increase insulin Resistance - Alcohol can disrupt insulin signalling leading to higher sugar levels and difficulty managing PCOS Symptoms . Sleep patterns - It impairs sleep leading to Daytime fatigue aggravating PCOS symptoms. Hair Loss - Drinking Alcohol can increase the level of DHT, a hormone that causes hair follicles to shrink leading to increased hair shedding and slower hair growth.
