Liquor is Quicker, but You Might Get Sicker Regardless of its form, alcohol is alcohol, and, when imbibed, it's inherently damaging to the skin. Alcohol dehydrates skin from the inside out. It's also damaging to the liver, which is responsible for filtering toxins in your body. If you're down to drink anyway (no judgment here), you should be thinking about what else is in your beverage, besides, ya know, alcohol. Drinks with extra sugar and salt cause inflammation and bloating -- not a good look. If you're sure that liquor is quicker, stick to shots without syrupy-sweet (like Red Bull and Coke) or sodium-rich (I'm looking at you, margarita) mixers.
But, if you take shots, be aware that you may end up drinking more alcohol than you realize, which can leave you more dehydrated (and more hungover) than you would have been if you had imbibed just one mixed drink.
