Skin Benefits AFTER You Quit Smoking

September 24th, 2014 | Self Improvement, Skin care

Wouldn’t it be nice to reverse the age of your skin? If you are currently a smoker, this is ACTUALLY possible. Smoking deteriorates your health in a variety of ways—including the health of your skin. There are over 4,000 harmful chemicals in a cigarette. With every puff you take, you are breathing these in and leaving a hurtful mark on your health.

Are you ready to quit once and for all? Take a look at these ways that your skin will improve after you put out the cigarettes for good. These facts may give you the push you need.

  • Quit today and have firmer skin tomorrow. Smoking destroys healthy collagen and elasticity. How? It decreases the levels of estrogen needed to keep skin firm and tight.
  • You will notice less redness. Since smoking increases skin inflammation, you may notice that you are red more times than not.
  • Your overall complexion will improve, looking much smoother. The longer one smokes, the more wrinkles there may be and the more uneven skin tone may look. Smoking literally ages your skin—but it is not too late to change that!
  • Say goodbye to dark circles around the eyes! By quitting, you will be improving the sensitive skin under your eyes. How, you ask? The toxins found in cigarette smoke damage the delicate tissue, thus giving you dark circles.
  • Research shows that smokers have a greater risk of developing psoriasis, a chronic condition that causes scaly patches on the skin. If you do not currently have psoriasis, it may be a good idea to keep it that way.

Once you quit smoking, your skin will be brighter, younger, and revitalized.
