New app shows how drinking ages you

In a bid to educate drinkers about the affect drinking has on their body, the Drink Smarter foundation produced a cellphone app which simulates the effect your drinking habits will have on your face over 10 years.

Users are encouraged to upload a photo of themselves and then enter how many glasses of wine they drink in a typical week up to a total 10 or more per week. The app then applies its algorithm to determine how you'll look 10 years from now if you keep up the habit.

KATE WINSLET

The British starlet didn't hold up too well to 10 years of being a hardcore Wino. Getting rid of the jowels could prove a titanic feat.

























Channing Tatum

This Hollywood Hearthrob, now 34, would be in a sorry state by the time he nears 50. If he drank at this rate his stripper days would be numbered indeed.























Kim Kardashian


Due to be married this week, we imagine Kanye is hoping Kim lays off the booze to avoid looking like this in a decade.























Try it for yourself! Download the app for iOS and Android, or try it online here.
