Post Smoking and acne

Does anyone out there think there is a direct relationship between smoking and acne? Looking back, all of my acne problems began around the time that I started smoking. Maybe it's just a coincidence.

smoking certainly does have a good role in acne...the toxins have nowhere to escape except the skin...through your pores. drink lots of water..this helps remove toxins. smoking also causes yellowing of the skin which makes scares more apparent.

i smoked for 13 years, and quit a year and a half ago, and while i still have acne, my skin looks sooooooo much better! i didn't even realize how bad it looked until it started to look better. Just little clogged pores would have a purplish cast when i was smoking, and i had all these visible looking capillaries, and pimples in general took 3 times as long to heal. There are a million benefits to quitting that are unbelievable, and skin is a biggie. If you're smoking and afraid to quit, don't be! Everything just gets better and better and better.
