Post Is smoke bad for your skin?

I heard just being around smoke and/or ppl who smoke is bad for the skin. I personally DONT smoke, I think its gross!

Also, yesterday I had a whole bad of animal crackers! I wish I hadnt but they were so addicting! I looked at the box and it said sugar, vegatable shortening, flour as the main ingredients.

I also had 2 slices of hawwai pizza and a small slurpee. How much sugar is in slurpees? How bad are they for you? I dont think it can be that bad, cause its mostly watered down with ice and water.

I know that if you do smoke, it makes it harder for your skin to repair itself, etc especially dealing with scars. It also takes a lot of moisture out of your skin and dries it. IT is unhealthy for your skin and your whole body. I am not sure how much 2nd hand smoke will harm your skin, but if people get cancer from second hand smoke, I am sure it doesn't help your skin much either! So I would stay away from that stuff.

Smoke is horrid for your skin. And every other part of your body.

Have you ever seen a person who has smoked most their life? They usually look 10-30 years older than they are.
Age spots, wrinkles, and bad texture are all enhanced by smoke.
