Don't you find it really annoying when you spend hours getting ready to go out to your favorite nightspot or club and you're efforts are spoiled as soon as you start sipping on a drink of alcohol because of your Asian flush. Red flushing all over the face, extremely unattractive swelling around the eyes and cheeks, and a host of other unpleasant symptoms such as difficulty breathing, itching, nausea, headaches, etc. The point is, if you have Asian flush, sometimes not drinking at all is better than having the above side effects spoil your night out on the town.

This unpleasant and annoying disorder is commonly referred to as Asian flush and owes its existence to an enzyme deficiency that exists in Asian flush sufferers which prevents their bodies from being able to adequately break down some specific byproducts of the alcohol metabolism process. These byproducts are unfortunately toxic, and as a result of your body's inability to break them down, you experience a variety of toxic reactions mentioned above which are commonly referred to as Asian flush.

From a strictly medical point of view, it is commonly accepted that there is no permanent cure for Asian flush. That said, many Asian drinking enthusiasts have sought other methods to counter the unpleasant and unwanted side effects of Asian flush.

One method sometimes mentioned is to take antacids like Pepcid AC before drinking alcohol. There are a few reports that this has helped to slightly reduce the red facial flushing for a short period of time, however, in most cases it is generally accepted that Pepcid AC on its own is not a sufficient cure for the symptoms of Asian flush. In my personal experience, Pepcid AC did not even reduce my red facial flushing and I have resorted to using other, better, solutions.

How then do we totally prevent this beauty disaster? Can it be the case that around 50% of Asian people are going to have to deal with their 'beauty disadvantage' just because of their Asian flush? Fortunately, there are relatively new solutions available that have only recently hit the market, however, they are already being used by more than 10,000 Asians drinkers worldwide!

With solutions now available, it is great to see Asian party goers able to drink alcohol like their friends without having to worry about their Asian flush making them appear less attractive. Whichever way you look at it, you end up seeing the huge potential for the Asian community to overcome a disorder that is both annoying and unflattering.

Lets face it, we live in a very superficial world, and whilst we would love to exist in a utopia where our appearances were irrelevant, unfortunately it is not realistic in this media driven paradigm that we call life today. In the real world, we are attracted by our senses and taught what to think about attraction and beauty by the mainstream media and fashion press. Sometimes we like what we smell, sometimes.... we don't. Likewise, sometimes we like what we see, sometimes we don't. It is as primal and fundamental as one can get when it comes to the laws of attraction. So why present yourself to those who's attention you desire as a red flushed, puffy eyed, red eyed mess? Why not finally take advantage of the great solutions available to us and cure your Asian flush so that you don't have to worry about it ever again? Sounds logical, right??

I can relate to all the people who send us emails about how stressful and anxious it makes them when they find themselves in a public social venue helplessly turning red and puffing up around the eyes. Sure, its not the end of the world. But why spend hours on picking the right outfit, doing your makeup (if you're a girl, or a guy who wears makeup ;), and generally making yourself look attractive when you know you will just spoil your appearance as soon as you start to drink and experience Asian flush. So, long story short, there are cures available so why not give them a try?

In summary, Asian flush really is an Asian beauty nightmare. If the red face is not enough to turn you off, how about the swollen and red eyes, hives, etc. Let's face it, it is a very unflattering disorder and you can breath a sigh of relief that there are now solutions available for you to be able to drink alcohol just like everyone else without having to worry about your Asian flush reaction making you appear less attractive in front of people who you may want to impress.
