Question smoking???

Hey everyone, I know that smoking is bad for you and everything but I just started this past summer and my acne has recently got worse. I was curious if anyone has had any experience with smoking and acne. Thanks for any response.

My acne hasn't goten worse since I started to smoke. Smoking doesn't cause acne, but it can aggravate some peoples acne, this might be your case. Try to not smoke for about 2 weeks and compare your complexions from when you smoked and during the two weeks.

smoking is really crummy for your skin. I did it for 13 years, and when i stopped, my skin looked tons better. Even if it didn't clear up totally, the color, tone, and appearance was a million times better. I did break out at first when i quit- toxins rushing out of my body, and that happens to a lot of ppl, but it clears quickly. Even if smoking doesn't give you zits, it will eventually make your skin look a lot worse. If you look at old ppl, you can always tell the smokers by their skin.
