Twins study shows smoking ages your face faster

CNN: A recent study has demonstrated that smoking expedites the aging of the face. “Smoking reduces the collagen formation, results in collagen degradation and reduces the skin circulation,” said Bahman Guyuron, the study’s lead researcher, and chair of the Department of Plastic Surgery. “Additionally, nicotine reduces the skin thickness. All of these reduce skin elasticity and (cause) premature aging.”
