Alcohol acts as a vasodilator, thus preventing the body, start the early warning of a rise in body temperature, which means that we become more likely to end up with one of these hot flashes.
Furthermore, alcohol also has a diuretic effect and we can even develop dehydration, which leads to the same, poor regulation of body temperature and of course, to heat stroke.
