Smoking Affects Facial Aging

                Smoking Affects Facial Aging
It is always being told to us that smoking is injurious to health but most of us never knew the fact that it also affects the aging factor. In the long duration of time (2007 to 2010) a study at Twins Days Festival, Twinsburg, Ohio took place where the results have shown that smoking is one of the major causes of premature aging. While many factors like sun exposure, alcohol, weight gain or weight loss and depression contribute to premature aging, continuous smoking can make you look more than five years older than your age by affecting your facial features which includes significant changes in upper & lower eye lids' skin (bagginess), wrinkles and aging lines. It was analysed that the style and selection of smoking devices determine what parts are affected the most by smoking. The data was gathered to examine the aging effects of smoking on the faces of identical twins in that study.
