Alcohol ageing app launched

A new phone app gives users an insight into how they will look after ten years of binge drinking.

“The Drinking Machine” application has been designed by forensic artist Auriole Price as a warning of the devastating effects of alcohol on the body.

Initially designed for a Scottish Government health drive, the app is now available on iTunes for 69p.

By taking a photo and inputting your daily alcohol intake, the app shows how heavy drinking speeds up the ageing process. 

Auriole, 41, said: “We are appealing to people’s vanity as the effects of alcohol can include red, broken veins on the cheeks, bloodshot eyes, a bloated face and deeper wrinkles.”

The app has been used on photographs of well-known celebrities – from Angelina Jolie and Madonna to Tulisa.
