Alcohol Makes My Face Red, What Can I Do?

If you have ever asked the question, “Alcohol makes my face red, what can I do?”, you have not only experienced the effects of Alcohol Flush Reaction or Alcohol Flush Syndrome first hand, but you have probably suffered an endless amount of embarrassment and humiliation along the way.

It does not matter how little alcohol you drink, when you suffer from Alcohol Flush, after taking only a few sips your face will flush the familiar beetroot red, and it will usually be accompanied by a host of other symptoms, varying from mildly uncomfortable to downright debilitating.

There are usually two ways to deal with this. You either give up drinking alcohol altogether, or you push through it and handle the jokes, the teasing and the looks.

If you stop drinking it can not only kill off your social life, but also your political, business or corporate career. Your social life is built around alcohol and it can be seen in how we invite each other out; “come over for dinner” (it includes wine), “let us meet for drinks after work, shall we go out to a nightclub or Karaoke?” All of these things involve alcohol and it seems that you can not say social and fun without having a drink to go with it; and that’s just your social life.

Your business, corporate and political career also depend on your ability to not only drink, but to also be perceived as being able to “handle your drink”. You will need to take clients to lunch (it involves drinks), have a business banquet (you will be Ganbei’d if it is in China) and a host of other events that all involve drinking some form of alcoholic drink.

In all of these events the last thing you want to tell everyone is that you cannot join them for a drink because “alcohol makes my face red”. Not only is this embarrassing because you are perceived as not being able to handle your drink, but you also end up being the centre of attention and the brunt of the dinner conversation, and all for the wrong reasons.

What Is Alcohol Flush Reaction?

Alcohol Flush Reaction is caused by the body’s inability to get rid of the by-product of alcohol metabolization – Acetaldehyde. The Acetaldehyde builds up in the body and the familiar facial flushing is the result of the stress the body goes through in ridding itself of it.

What Causes Alcohol Flush?

Alcohol Flush Syndrome is the result of two sets of genes that are out of sync in the body. In people who have two variants of the alcohol dehydrogenase gene, ADH1B and ADH1C, these genes work to metabolize alcohol in a highly efficient way; in fact, between 40 and 100 times more efficiently than in people without this gene variant. The net result is that they don’t quite feel the alcohol “buzz”. However, a by-product of this alcohol metabolization process is Acetaldehyde, a substance highly toxic to the human body and we have a special gene, ALDH2, specifically designed to remove this waste product, Acetaldehyde, from the body.

There is, however, a group of people with a defective set of this ALDH2 gene which makes it difficult for their bodies to get rid of the Acetaldehyde which builds up in their bodies from the consumption of alcohol. If one of these genes is defective in a person, then they will experience only mild flushing symptoms, however, if both genes are defective then they will experience more severe symptoms.

So, not only do their bodies metabolize alcohol more efficiently, but it also struggles to get rid of the Acetaldehyde that builds up as a result of this metabolization process.
