Smoking and Wrinkles


Everyone knows tobacco products can discolor the skin along your hands and lips, but fewer people know that it can make it difficult for it to bounce back—literally. That's because the chemicals found in cigarettes reduce the blood supply to the skin thereby decreasing collagen production. Collagen, a fibrous protein, is essential in keeping the skin soft, supple, and springy. So when your skin does develop a crease your body is less equipped to perk up.

Quick Fix: Reduce your intake of tobacco, and invest in products that strengthen skin cells like glo therapeutics Ultra 15% Vitamin C.
