Smoking increases facial lines and wrinkles, delays skin healing and is bad for you. The effects increase with the amount of cigarettes and number of years a person has smoked. Ageing of the skin is accelerated by smoking - long term smokers have more facial lines than non-smokers of the same age, and tend to have a yellowish sallow complexion. Smoking may also increase the chance of skin cancers.
