Have you considered quitting smoking thousands of times but you never succeed? Today is the perfect day to quit tobacco! Today, on World No Tobacco Day, I am going to explain why your skin will appreciate that you stop smoking...
Believe it or not, skin and smoking are directly related. This occurs because the free radicals that tobacco expels reduce the antioxidant capacity of the skin , accelerating its premature aging . Did you know that tobacco can advance the aging of your epidermis by between 10 and 20 years ? It is a real barbarity!
Thus, the skin not only ages , but can also suffer from dehydration , becoming rough, inflexible and brittle . In addition, the smoke it produces decreases the cellular oxygenation of the dermis (deepest layer of the skin), so your face will look more tired and dull . This, if we add it to the side effects of ultraviolet rays on the face , makes the face the area of our body where cell damage is most noticeable.
Finally, you should keep in mind that smoking impairs the nutrition of the skin . This is due to the fact that the nicotine contained in cigarettes decreases blood circulation , hindering the arrival of oxygen to the tissues . Consequently, your skin will have a more grayish or yellowish color .
¡There's not excuse what worths! Your skin is crying out for you to quit smoking ... Also, keep in mind that until after three or four years without smoking , the skin will not fully recover (so the longer you take to quit, the longer it will take to have perfect skin ).
