Smoking makes your skin look older and contributes to wrinkles.
Smoking narrows the tiny blood vessels in the outermost layers of
skin, which decreases blood flow.
This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are important to
skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and elastin — the fibers
that give your skin its strength and elasticity.
In addition, the repetitive facial expressions you make when
smoking — such as pursing your lips when inhaling and squinting
your eyes to keep out smoke — can contribute to wrinkles.
If you smoke, the best way to protect your skin is to quit.
