- More beautiful skin
When you pause about your skin. Because you temporarily do not drink, your skin hydrates better. And that ensures a fresh and younger look.

What additionally stimulates the condition of your skin is drinking water, a lot of sleep, a good facial cleansing and eating enough vegetables.

- Better sports performance
Are you a runner, tennis player, soccer player or avid dog walker? There is a good chance that your daily or weekly portion of exercise will be a lot easier for you. If you regularly drink alcohol, this has consequences for your resistance, sleep and your condition in general. This has an impact on your sports performance. Furthermore, drinking alcohol before exercise - think of sagging the night before - reduces focus, coordination, muscle strength and endurance during exercise. So you perform less well and you don't last as long as you exercise.

- size less
Did you know that 32 percent of IkPas participants lose weight during a break? Of course, thinner does not necessarily mean more beautiful, but if you feel better with a few kilos less, then this is a win for you. Alcohol is a toxic substance that your body wants to get rid of as quickly as possible. That is why your liver first starts breaking down the alcohol. Only then will the calories that you have taken in come into play. The substances that your body cannot get to are stored as fat for as long as possible. By drinking alcohol, you actually put your normal combustion process on pause every time. Now that you pause, your combustion system is functioning again as it should. This can make your pants a bit looser. Read more about the relationship between alcohol and your weight in the article: Weight loss and alcohol.
