How Tobacco Affects Skin?
At first during smoking, the body produces large amount of free radicals, which can not be challenged by powerful antioxidants such as bioflavonoids, vitamins A, C and E, basically because they usually work in the epidermal layer of the skin. Free radical reduces skin elasticity, which makes it rougher then wrinkles appear and the skin becomes more dry and free radicals ultimately affects blood vessels.
Besides the appearance of free radicals during the smoking process, over 400 hazardous and toxic substances are produced in the body. They are responsible for decreased levels that maintain your skin health. As a result of smoking, micro circulation is disturbed, especially in the blood vessels. Thus the skin cells are suffocated by nicotine that reduces the amount of oxygen in the body and increases the amount of carbon dioxide.
