In my last post I wrote on straws and wrinkles. If you read that post,you will get a hint on the above topic (smoking wrinkles) because I wrote briefly about smoking.
Now back to the topic for today. Most people now know the health effects of smoking as it affects the lungs which can lead to cancer. Do you also know that smoking is not good for your skin? Yes, your skin is not safe too. Smoking does causes wrinkles otherwise known as smoking wrinkles. It is known as one of the major cause of wrinkles.
How does smoking causes wrinkles?
Perhaps, the most important way smoking causes skin wrinkles is that it causes free radical damage to the skin. The smoke from the cigarettes is know to cause the damage of collagen and elastin. These are elements that gives the skin its support. When this occur, the skin cannot be held together and thus leading to development of lines and wrinkles and in most causes premature wrinkles.
Another way smoking wrinkles is caused is that, during the process of smoking or puffing cigarettes, the lips move in a particular manner. Repetitive movement of the lip in this manner can lead to the formation of lip lines or marionette lines around the mouth. If you are a heavy smoker, you are more likely to develop these wrinkles faster than a light or moderate smoker, however, which ever way, you are at risk.
Just like I stated in my previous post on straws and wrinkles, there are several other factors that could be responsible to hasten the formation of wrinkles. The time and rate, your age and other factors could contribute to the development of wrinkles. For instance, someone who smokes for a short time and someone who have been smoking for a long time will have different effect. Same also goes for heavy and light smokers. Also some one who is older and someone who is younger will have different effect or impact of the wrinkles.
Another factor that could contribute to the formation of wrinkles is sun’s exposure. Just like smoking, hut different degree, the sun’s light cause damage to collage and elastin in the body. And we know this elements help to keep the skin together. When these protein are damage, the body is prone to wrinkles.
Can smoking wrinkles be prevented?
The easiest way to prevent wrinkles cause by smoking is not to smoke at all. But if you are already a smoker, then stop smoking entirely. It may be difficult for some to stop but I know it is possible. It is beyond my scope here to tell you how to go about it but I know there are many other areas where you can get help.
Can Quitting Smoking Reverse Wrinkles?
Quitting smoking may not reverse wrinkle damage, but , it will go a long way to ensure that your skin do not suffer further damage as a result of continuing with the habit. The rate at which you age will drop when you quit smoking.
Does Smoking Weed Cause Wrinkles?
Smoke causes the damage of collagen and elastin in the skin. So, certainly, smoking weed will definitely causes wrinkles.
Does Nicotine Cause Wrinkles?
Nicotine present in cigarettes certainly a cause of wrinkles on the skin. Nicotine causes blood vessels in the outer layer of the skin to become narrow and this causes prevent proper flow of blood to the skin. Like I stated earlier the smoke from the cigarrete causes damage to the skin.
Does Smoking Age Your Face?
Smoking and your face? Yes, it does tell on your face. I know that one day everyone will grow old and get wrinkles. But, how soon you get those wrinkles matters as you are likely going to get those wrinkles even deep wrinkles from smoking earlier than normal.
