Effects of smoking on your skin:

Smoking can impact your skin’s health and beauty, even though it is now widely known that smoking is bad for your overall health. When you inhale smoke, millions of chemical pollutants are released into your skin, causing premature ageing and a number of skin problems.

Early ageing and wrinkles because of smoking
Early ageing and wrinkles because of smoking
  1. Early ageing and wrinkles: Nicotine in cigarettes is the key factor in smoking’s acceleration of skin ageing. The nicotine in cigarettes promotes skin to become constricted. Because of the impaired blood flow to your skin, less oxygen and vital nutrients reach the skin. The compounds in cigarette smoke cause damage to the two main fibrous substances that help keep your skin strong and supple, collagen and elastin. Without them, suppleness declines and wrinkles deepen, hastening the ageing process. The most noticeable facial wrinkles are usually found between your brows, around your eyes, and near your lips. Another potential negative side effect of smoking is sagging skin, particularly around the eyes and jawline.
  2. Psoriasis development: Psoriasis is a long-term inflammatory skin condition that causes scaly, itchy patches. Psoriasis might look purple or dark brown with greyish flakes on people with dark skin tones. Those with fair skin may notice that the scales are crimson or pink in colour. For a better understanding, it is recommended that you speak with a dermatologist.Psoriasis and smoking may both be caused by nicotine in cigarettes. Because of its impact on the immune system, skin inflammation, and cell proliferation, nicotine makes psoriasis worse.
Skin tumours & cancer because of smoking
Skin tumours & cancer because of smoking
  1. Skin tumours & cancer: Smoking also raises the risk of skin cancer, which is further increased by staying far more time in the sun. Smokers are more likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma, the second most prevalent form of skin cancer, which is brought on by the unchecked proliferation of aberrant squamous cells in the epidermis. This type of skin cancer is typically found on sun-exposed areas and more frequently affects older people. While SCC is treatable if detected in time, it still has the tendency to spread to other parts of the body and pose a risk to life.
  2. Skin pigmentation: Smoking causes the skin’s melanin to rise, which may result in dark patches, particularly on the face. The nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes, sometimes known as “tar,” can cause some skin tones to yellow from continuously gripping cigarettes between the same fingers.

  3. Delayed wound healing: Numerous studies have demonstrated that smoking can impede wound healing, increasing the risk of wound infection, reducing the wound’s strength, failing skin grafts, necrosis, and causing blood clots to form. Smoking causes vascular constriction, which lowers blood flow and hinders healing.
