We all know that smoking is harmful. Nevertheless, many continue to smoke. And all the arguments, they say, "you will age earlier," "your skin will sag faster," etc. are usually answered with sarcasm. Well, these photos of the twins should convince at least some. In these pictures you see twins, one of whom smokes, and the other does not. The difference is noticeable, especially in the lip area.
Nicotine also damages the collagen and elasticity of the skin, which causes wrinkles to form faster and the skin to sag. In the photo: the woman on the left smokes 17 years longer than her sister on the right.
When you smoke, the capillaries in the epidermis narrow. The weakening blood flow does not allow enough oxygen and nutrients to reach your skin. In the photo: the twin sister on the right smokes, on the left – no.
Cigarette smoke makes you squint more often, and the smoking process itself affects the skin near the mouth, where smokers primarily form wrinkles. In the photo: both twins smoke, but the twin on the right smokes 14 years longer than his brother.
This, as well as a decrease in vitamin C due to smoking, can lead to the fact that the skin becomes gray and loses its healthy color. By the way, the face is not the only part of the body that suffers from smoking. In the photo: on the right – a smoker with 29 years of experience. The twin on the left does not smoke.
