Researchers observed that regular drinking of alcohol increased the risk of developing melanoma. The findings of this study indicate that melanoma is more likely to occur in women who are habitual consumers of alcohol.

This is inline with a recent video I saw on concerning antioxidant levels and how they can protect against sunburn. Apparently, drinking alcohol will use up a lot of your current antioxidants in your blood, leaving your skin less protected from sun damage.

Some interesting things to research further:
Would the antioxidants found in red wine and some beers be at all protective when compared to similar amounts of consumption of other alcohols that contain no antioxidants?
