Smoking ages skin, says study

CHICAGO: Smoking not only can wrinkle the face and turn it yellow — it can do the same to the whole body, researchers reported n Monday.

The study, published in the Archives of Dermatology, shows that smoking affects the skin all over the body — even skin protected from the sun.

“We examined non-facial skin that was protected from the sun, and found that the total number of packs of cigarettes smoked per day and the total years a person has smoked were linked with the amount of skin damage a person experienced,” Yolanda Helfrich of the University of Michigan, who led the study, said.
