Quit Smoking And Get Gorgeous Looking Skin

There, finally, seems to be a progress against the evils of combustible tobacco smoking as suggested by the reducing number of smokers in Canada that are the lowest in the last four decades. It has also seen a great decline among teenagers who don’t think of it as something cool anymore. Another good that has happened across Canada is the ban on public smoking that keeps us non-smoker safe from the harms of passive smoking. The public ban also keeps impressionable kids from getting attracted towards the dangerous habit. The New England Journal of Medicine published a research that claims that quitting smoking is contagious which means if a person quits cigarettes then his friends and family are also very likely to quit.

Even with the dropping number of smokers, there are still 5 million Canadian who smoke combustible tobacco cigarettes which make up for 20% of the total population. Out of this staggeringly large amount of smokers, 37,000 people die each year because of the habit which adds up to £15 billion in annual social costs and £3.4 billion in healthcare. There are countless health complications that arise because of smoking and if you’re wondering what this bad habit can do to your looks then read on.

Combustible tobacco can completely destroy your looks. It causes your skin to become wrinkly, saggy, discolored and it also makes you look overage. The damage caused by smoking can be permanent to basic skin structures like collagen. According to Dr. Peter Selby from Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Toronto, “With 4,000 harmful chemicals in every cigarette, each time you breathe the smoke in and out of your lungs, you are aging your body, your face, your teeth and your skin.”

The adverse effects of smoking on skin health and resiliency were first studied almost 30 years ago but today the science is better able to explain the impact of toxic ingredients that are found in tobacco cigarettes. “The smoker’s face” is the term used to describe the impacts of smoking on a person’s facial appearance.

Dr. Anatoli Freiman from the University of Toronto has authored a review of all the studies that has been so far carried out on the effects of tobacco on human skin. These effects are mostly caused by the dangerous chemicals that are present in tobacco cigarettes like nicotine, tar, hydrogen cyanide, carbon monoxide, ammonia, formaldehyde, lead, cadmium, and mercury. All of these harmful chemicals team up together to reduce the blood and oxygen flow to the skin. Hence, damaging the skin’s structure and also destroying the collagens and elastin which provide elasticity to the skin. According to Freiman, this lack of elasticity of skin results in surplus wrinkling which can be particularly noticed around the lips and eyes, and cannot be undone. The water contents of the skin’s outermost layer are also reduced because of combustible tobacco smoking which causes the skin to dry out and become more fragile.
