Tips to Improve Smokers' Skin: Whether you are still smoking or have quit, you can stop accelerating the aging process and undo the damage wrought by smoking.
Yesterday we showed you a before and after picture of a smoker. Although that should be strong motivation to quit smoking, we all know how difficult it is to break a smoking habit. Hopefully some of today's tips will help you get on the road to recovery.
The grayish color of the skin is one of the many problems caused by smoking. If you want to look fresh, “attack“ the problem internally. Eat fruits rich in vitamin C and foods containing zinc. They stimulate the formation of collagen which is important for the skin. Eat wheat, oat flakes and fish - they are the main source of zinc. To replenish the lack of vitamin A, eat lettuce and carrots. Vitamin E is “responsible“ for the youth of your skin. Exfoliate, get facials, use night creams, and take supplements and multivitamins. Nutritional support is a must if you are in this category. As most people know, smoking depletes levels of essential vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants from the body system. Be careful which mulitvitamin you choose. Choose one that contains no Beta-Carotene. Beta-Carotene has been found in multiple clinical studies to be potentially harmful to cigarette smokers.
