Smoking and Skin Health
Smokers have more wrinkles in their skin.
Smokers tend to have particularly bad wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.
Smokers in their forties have as many wrinkles as nonsmokers in their sixties do.
Smoking affects the development of wrinkles even among people in their twenties and thirties.
Crowsfeet, wrinkles around the mouth, and damage to the blood vessels on the face are all increased from the effects of smoking along with discoloring of the skin.
