What if a physician told you that smoking would change your skin considerably within 10 years?
In 2015, a US digital media company ran an experiment on 3 smokers. The company got a makeup artist to transform the faces of 3 smokers to prove the study that smoking impacts the skin. The experiment showed them how they will age in some years if they continue to smoke.
The results were quite shocking. In other words, the makeup artist attempted to show them what a smoker’s skin seems to be like.
What Is A Smoker’s Skin?
The development of a smoker’s skin depends from smoker to smoker. Skin damage could develop from your first instance of smoking or after a few years of smoking. The extent of smoking is also a factor.
|Forms Of A Smoker’s Skin|
|Uneven and poor skin tone||● Pale yellow or grey skin
● Capillaries are seen as spidery lines when the blood vessels are more prominent
|Nicotine present in cigarettes causes blood vessels to narrow. The flow of oxygen and nutrients to skin cells reduces.|
|Premature ageing||● Wrinkles and lines on the face, the upper and lower lips
● Crow’s feet is seen earlier than in non-smokers
|The chemicals in cigarettes affect blood circulation. Less blood flows to the face. The skin receives lesser oxygen and fewer nutrients.
Smoking also affects collagen production. Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin healthy, strong and stretchy. With age, collagen production decreases. The skin naturally starts to sag and wrinkle. Smoking speeds up this process.
Lines around the mouth:
● Occur due to pouting action while sucking on the cigarette
● Skin dehydration due to nicotine present in cigarettes
● Low absorption of Vitamin and Vitamin C into the skin
● Occurs as smokers squint their eyes often to protect them from the heat of burning cigarettes.
● Also, chemicals from inhaled smoke damage the internal skin structures and blood vessels around the eyes.
|Sagging skin||● Loosening of skin on the face, upper arms and breasts
● Older appearance
|Nicotine constricts blood flow in the skin.
The toxins present in cigarettes trigger the destruction of collagen and elastin. These fibres are responsible for the skin’s strength and elasticity.
|Psoriasis||Thick and scaly patches usually on the knees, elbows, scalp, hands, feet, or back||Nicotine weakens the immune system, causes skin inflammation and affects cell growth.|
|Scarring or increased risk of infections||Wounds for a long time||The blood vessels stay constricted. As a result, wounds take a longer time to heal and pose the risk of skin infection, gangrene, or the production of new blood vessels.|
|Acne Inversa||Pus-filled boils||This skin disease is more prevalent among smokers.|
|Vasculitis||Blood clots anywhere in the body||Due to constriction in blood flow, the flow of blood to the hands and feet is restricted. This anomaly could result in tissue damage, pain or ulcers.|
|Tar stains||Yellow pigmentation on the skin of fingers holding the cigarette||The stains develop due to nicotine and other toxins present in cigarettes.|
