This Is What Happens When You Drink A Margarita Every Day

BY CAROLINE CORAL

Whether it's cooling off by the pool during a summertime heatwave or an escape to a beachy tropical paradise, there are more than a few occasions to enjoy multiple days of margaritas. Don't let the fact that the godfather of Margaritaville, Jimmy Buffet, has given up on the cocktail (via People) deter you entirely. Here's a look at the pluses and minuses of drinking fresh lime juice, triple sec, and tequila on a daily basis.

According to The Daily Meal, a margarita made with freshly squeezed lime juice is going to contribute towards a healthy daily dose of vitamin C. The benefits of citrus are big. Dig in a little deeper and you'll find that lime juice contains additional healthy elements including antioxidants, immunity boosters, and even factors that can keep your skin glowing and reduce the risk of heart disease (via Healthline).

Of course, there is a downside to consuming all of that citrus. The Chicago Tribune warns that overdoing margs (and other highly acidic beverages) while in the summer sun can lead to a nasty condition called phytophotodermatitis otherwise known as "margarita dermatitis." The thinking behind this theory is that when lime juice comes into contact with skin, the sun heats it up making for a painful rash.
