Mexican beer lovers typically only worry about the calories or just focus on the sabor/flavor but now drinkers be warned you can get ‘Mexican beer dermatitis’ from your cerveza fria.
Several dermatologists are warning about the facial distortions that can come from the combination of beer and limejuice hitting your skin. Basically if you get limejuice on your skin and then are exposed to sun your skin will discolor. The really bad news is that the discoloration can last for months, long after the buzz of your cerveza is gone.
The unsightly blotches are common amongst bartenders who work outside and boaters who drink cerveza with limes. The ‘psoralen’ ingredient in limes causes the actual staining of your skin causing redness that turns to brown splotches.
