If you smoke, it won’t do anything for your appearance but make you look old and haggardly. In addition to that,
smoking seriously affects your skin. If you’re trying to stay young, kicking the nicotine habit immediately is the best thing you can do for yourself.
The more you smoke, the more the blood vessels in your skin shrink. They are already small and smoking just adds to their diminished size. When this happens, your healthy blood flow is reduced.
In addition to that, you start to lose key nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and collagen. The collagen in your skin starts to crumble, thus losing the elastic movement in your skin.
Chronic smoking helps to waste your skin away. You will start to look older before your time and your skin will be dry and wrinkled. As you smoke, your face tends to create squinting movements, causing even additional Wrinkles to appear.
Soon, you will start to look as through the frown on your face is your natural stature. An obvious sign of a chronic smoker is their lips. Their lips turn dark from the inside and spread to the outer lips. This makes your mouth look ugly.
If you have wounds or scars that need to heal, the healing process will take longer. As you’re smoking, you have sucked the vitamins, minerals & Nutrients that are needed to help with the healing. Also, you have less blood flow and that also impedes the healing process.
The most common thing that smoking does is cause different kinds of Cancers .The number one cancer from smoking is lung cancer. This is because you’re inhaling the nicotine straight from the cigarette into your lungs. Even if you don’t smoke, you can still inherit lung cancer by inhaling second-hand smoke.
The sooner you quit, the better your chances are to reverse this. Your skin will start to clear and the blood will start flowing in your body.
With more added circulation, your skin can be restored to its natural state. If you don’t stop, you will end up looking like a prune. You have the power to change the way you look before it’s too late!.
