You may be aware that our skin is the body's largest organ, and smoking can cause premature aging in various ways. While some people may choose to accept this damage as a part of their lives, others may want to do something about it. So if you're interested in learning how to treat wrinkles from smoking, keep reading!
Smoking is terrible for the health of any skin type.
You might be aware that smoking is bad for your skin. Whether your skin is dry, oily, or a combination, it's crucial to understand how smoking can affect you. Smoking causes wrinkles, age spots, and even skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States—and it's also one of the easiest cancers to prevent! It takes some motivation and dedication on your part.
In addition to these adverse effects on your overall health (including increased risk for heart disease), smoking can cause these issues for your skin.:
- Dryness and flaking
- fine lines from smoking
- wrinkles from smoking
- more dark spots, pigmentation, age spots
You may have noticed that smokers look older than nonsmokers and tend to have many more wrinkles around their eyes and mouth. Quitting this nasty habit will make you look and feel healthier overall. In addition, you can take steps to help minimize some of these effects by treating them early. For example, use good skincare products containing retinol or vitamin C. Treat your wrinkles with a good quality (LED) light therapy mask like our Kandyway Eternal Glow.
A good moisturizer can help repair some of the wrinkles from smoking.
A good moisturizer can help repair some of the damage. Apply moisturizers to the face and neck immediately after washing your face.
A light moisturizer is best for treating wrinkles caused by smoking since it will not clog pores or cause breakouts on your skin. Find a quality moisturizer that will work well for you, look for one with no fragrances and minimal ingredients such as glycerin or vitamin E.
Retinoid creams are effective at treating wrinkles and smoothing fine lines.
Retinoids are vitamin A derivatives that work by increasing cell turnover. Therefore, they are effective at treating wrinkles and smoothing fine lines. Retinoid creams can be applied topically or taken orally. While retinoids may help with wrinkles, they can also cause skin irritation, sun sensitivity, and birth defects if taken during pregnancy. However, this is a good option worth considering if you want to reduce your wrinkles from smoking.
Exfoliating can make a huge difference.
One of the best ways to reduce wrinkles caused by smoking is to exfoliate. Exfoliating helps remove the top layer of skin, revealing new and healthy-looking skin underneath. It also removes dead skin cells from the pores, which reduces facial puffiness.
Many people don't know they need to exfoliate their face regularly. Especially if they smoke or are exposed to environmental factors like pollution or sun exposure. But when you think about it, it makes sense—all those things cause dryness and roughness because they dehydrate your skin and make it hard to shed off old layers (like peeling an orange).
Antioxidant serums can improve skin's appearance and reverse sun damage.
For example, using antioxidants can improve skin appearance and reverse sun damage. Antioxidants reduce some of the damage caused by smoking and can be found in many foods and supplements. Antioxidants are good for your health and skin!
These antioxidants have been shown to fight wrinkles caused by smoking or aging
- vitamin C
- green tea extract,
- resveratrol (found in red grapes),
- acai berry extract
- pomegranate seed oil
- grape seed oil
Wear a quality sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect the skin from future damage.
Apply sunscreen 15 minutes before going outside, and then reapply every 2 hours if you are sweating or swimming. This goes a long way to stop the signs of aging and wrinkles.
