The app shows users what will happen to their looks if they drink heavily over a long period of time.

The Drinking Mirror app, developed for the Scottish Government’s ‘Drop a Glass Size’ campaign, aims to show women what will happen to their looks if they regularly drink heavily. The app uses a picture of your face and information about your drinking habits to reveal the effects of alcohol consumption.

The free app, available for iPhone, Android, and on the web, shows users that cutting down a glass size can have a significant effect on the ageing process. The latest figures show that around 38% of women regularly exceed daily or weekly sensible drinking guidelines, by drinking more than 2-3 units a day/14 units a week. This can cause deeper wrinkles, red cheeks, and weight gain.
