It’s Friday night and the weekend is here. It is the perfect time for a night out on the town! Some of you may want to celebrate with a nice glass of alcohol and there are just so many options available. Some of you may opt for a nice bottle of beer; a good choice isn’t it? Well that can be answered many ways, but for those of you who are looking to find out if beer causes cellulite, then maybe you need to read a bit more, before you make the decision to drink or not to drink that beer.

Why is Beer So Bad?

Beer by itself will not cause cellulite, but if you take a look at the causes, you will see that there are many different culprits. Food is a big cause and two other notorious ones are alcohol and carbohydrates. If you take a close look at the composition of beer, you will see that in addition to alcohol, it is also full of carbs. So right off the bat, this is a recipe for disaster, especially when it comes to dimpled orange peel look.


When it comes to getting rid of cellulite, one thing that they tell people to cut back on or avoid is alcohol. Alcohol is a known toxin that causes all kind of harm to your body. There are a lot of different toxins that can be found in alcohol and over time, you will notice that the toxins will build up in the fat cells. The toxins are responsible for the reduction in circulation and what you find is that they can have an effect on the dermis and this can lead to the contribution of the formation of cellulite.

Beer is Full of Carbs

For an alcoholic beverage, beer has some of the highest levels of carbohydrates around. There is about 12 grams of carbs per 12 ounce bottle.  With that much carbs, it can contribute to weight gain, especially if it is consumed a lot. And as we stated, the more weight you gain, is the more the cellulite will show on the skin.

So Is It Bad to Drink Beer?

As with anything, moderation is important. If you are just drinking one or two beers a week and lead a generally healthy lifestyle, then you should have no worries as the impact will be minimal.

If you are knocking back beers daily, then you really should look at your alcohol consumption, especially if you are looking at getting rid of your cellulite. Remember what I spoke about above, the amount of alcohol you drink is just a piece of the puzzle that causes cellulite.

If you must have an alcoholic beverage, then try something different like wine. Red wine is much better for you than beer, especially since it contains so much antioxidant, which have been proven to be extremely at fighting cellulite. You still have to drink in moderation, but it is a much better option compared to the carbohydrate laden beer.
