How does smoking age your skin?

How does smoking age your skin?

 

Yes. Smoking is bad for skin. Look at a long term smoker and you will notice that smoking ages the skin and makes people look older than they are. 

Smoking deprives the skin of oxygen and nutrients which means that smokers often have loose skin and deeper wrinkles.


The reason for this is that the thousands of chemicals in tobacco smoke destroy the collagen and elastin fibers that give skin its strength and elasticity.
 
Skin becomes saggy and wrinkled when you smoke. The lips will often have deep lines because a smoker purses their lips to suck on a the small diameter of a cigarette and this puckering of the lips combined with the effect of smoking on the skin create deep lines around the lips.

Smoking won't just make facial skin saggy; the entire body will have saggy skin and smokers often have notice droopy skin on their arms and chest area. 
 
Smoking also damages the teeth and gums and nicotine stained gums and teeth make you look older.
 
Many smokers in mid-life think that smoking helps them to eat less which keeps them slim and young looking.

Being slim does make people look younger, but a slim smoker will end up looking much older.
