Smoking and Skin Damage

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who just quite smoking after being a two pack a day smoker for over twenty years. Now in her early forties, she is concerned that the smoking has done permanent damage to her skin that she will not be able to correct.

I had heard before that if one quit smoking and began to take care of the skin properly that at least a portion of the damage caused by smoking would repair itself over the period of a couple of years. Is this not correct?

If there are things my friend can do to improve the condition of her skin, does anyone have suggestions?

Yes, your friend can start with facials.  Find a local establishment who does facials (join if she can afford to) and get one facial monthly. It is cheaper if you join.  I joined Massage Envy.  I am almost 60 years old but people tell me I look 40-ish. My mother, who will be 90 has received facials her whole life off and on and she too looks about 70-ish.  Maybe good genetics, however, facials will remove the damaged layer of skin so your skin and collagen can re-activate.  It is a process, but you will see a difference right away.

    • I love a big ass bun on the top of my head. Sometimes I put a kids flower crown around it. For fancy things, I do a lower, respectable bun type of look. I'm black with kinky waist length (when stretched. Shrinks to shoulder length) hair. I spend like 5 minutes on a daily look. Wash day takes about 4 hours between actual washing, then setting my hair in some way. I usually do two strand twists for a twist out, then I just style that in whatever way.
    • Mitvana Products are the best natural skin care products available in the market for the lowest price and good quality. All mitvana products are made with naturally available herbs, chemical free and also free from artificial colors.  
    • There is this book written by Vasudha Rai - Glow that talks about everything from products to diet to home remedies on how to take care of skin and get glowing skin.  
    • Very easy to use and no need to use conditioner or any other product to    Bluestacks Lucky Patcher Kodi   wash your hair (it also detangles hair). And the bonus is that it gives volume to thin hair.
    • I want to share useful information in my opinion. Finally, in Tokyo, legalized gambling in casinos and now tokyo casinos are helping the country's economy. Also, in order to alleviate the fear of gambling addiction, a law was introduced obliging to pay 53$ per entry. I wonder what this will all lead, but if you look at it in the face of it, then this raises the country's economy to a new level, and this can be done in many countries in which they are ready to take the same measures.
