Oh great. Not only did we eat ourselves silly over the bank holiday, but now we're worried we have 'Wine Face'?!  

If you consumed a little more grape than usual over the break - it may literally be written all over your face. 

Yep, experts have long made direct links between the digestive system and the skin, and if you have an intolerance to alcohol, your face says it all. 

Naturopath and skincare specialist Nigma Talib created a series of illustrations to show the signs and symptoms of an intolerance.

The characteristics of Wine Face, as told to Cosmopolitan, are 'pronounced lines or redness between the eyes, droopy eyelids, enlarged pores, dehydrated skin with feathery lines across cheeks, reddish cheeks and nose, deep nasolabial folds'. 

Wow, stunning. Just in case you need a visual:

We imagine right now you're wondering WHYYYYYYYY? 

Well, alcohol is dehydrating so lines and wrinkles will worsen, and the area between your eyes is related to the liver according to the popular Face Mapping concept.

Dry June anyone?
