November 15th is the Great American Smoke-Out. And if you or someone you love is one of those smokers who believes you will escape the physical fall-out of smoking, and always enjoy good health, then focus on the facts! While you aspire to the aesthetics of looking cool and staying thin, smoking will take a devastating aesthetic toll on your skin, hair and nails.
Studies have shown that smokers have more skin wrinkles and post-pubertal acne than non-smokers. This is because the chemicals from smoke speed up the aging process, and narrow blood vessels reducing blood flow, and oxygen and Vitamin A delivery for skin repair. The toxins in smoke also break down skin proteins and produce free-radicals which cause an inflammatory response and reduce the skin's ability to rebuild, repair and regenerate.
Smoking harms hair as well. Not only does it increase hair loss but it also causes premature graying. Smoke damages the blood vessels feeding the DNA of the hair follicles, and causes local inflammation . In addition, the smoke affects the health and quantity of surrounding estrogens leading to an androgenic alopecia. While wrinkles can be filled quickly and gray hair can be covered up easily, the treatments for androgenic alopecia are more limited.
Yellow nails, commonly seen in smokers, are the result of the nicotine deposits on the skin and nails. Aside from looking and smelling bad, the nicotine reduces blood flow by constricting the blood vessels. This leads to an increased risk of nail fungus, and nails become dry, dull and deformed.
Check out Dr. Yagoda's tips on how to stop smoking, and join the Great American Smoke-Out. Your skin, hair, nails, lungs, lips, tongue, voice box, bladder and heart won't know how to thank you! And remember....the only difference between a successful person and a failure is that the failure gives up.
