Smoking and acne on the face - is there a connection?
Skin is a mirror of the state of the human body. The signals she sends, the first bell, indicating that you need to radically change your lifestyle and bad habits. Cigarette smoke, nicotine, tar and toxins ruthlessly poison the body and affect not only its internal processes, but its outer shell, causing the formation of acne. Pimples from smoking - a common phenomenon in women, as well as in the strong half of humanity. And many do not think that the reason for ineffective treatment is not in the means used, but in a pernicious habit.
How does the poisoning of the skin through nicotine, why smoking and pimples on the face are often associated with each other as a cause and symptom? So, inhaling the poisonous smoke of cigarettes, caustic substances quickly penetrate through the lungs into the circulatory system, where they begin their artful deed: to poison with carbon monoxide all the organs of human life. The skin is not an exception. Harmful compounds mercilessly "burn" oxygen, which provides the body with vitamins necessary for healthy and clean skin. With each puff, this process is more and more gaining momentum, not to mention the long-standing addiction to the nicotine drug. Result: the skin begins to "choke" without oxygen and vitamins, which eventually leads to their deep intoxication and corkiness. And this, in turn, becomes the root cause of the appearance of acne.
If the power of habit is stronger ...
Speaking about whether there can be pimples from smoking, from a medical point of view, everything is crystal clear. How to help if the dependence is stronger than the desire to say goodbye to eels forever? Carrying out constant caring cosmetic procedures and the correct regime of the day, which is inherently the minimal contribution to the beauty that can be done. These include:
- sufficient use of pure water, it will help cleanse the blood of toxins and more likely to remove them from the body;
- the use of as much fresh vegetable food as possible (fruits and vegetables), it will contribute to the removal of toxins and feeds the body with vitamins;

Acne after quitting smoking is a fairly common pathology, most often of a temporary nature, as a result of a sharp blocking of nicotine intake. It is known, nicotine - the most that there is a drug that causes dependence not only on the psychological plan. The organism, from day to day, receiving a poisonous substance, willy-nilly gets used to even the bad, its biological rhythm is changed, there is a reorganization and a change in the vital activity of the organs. Everything changes: the composition of blood, the hormonal index, the state of blood vessels and organs, metabolism, etc. When you cancel the intake of toxic substances, there is a certain stress, in other words, a restart into the correct mode. Now the entire body system must be completely cleansed and get used to a new rhythm.
They quit smoking. Where did the pimples come from?
The appearance of acne in the refusal of cigarettes is due to a number of reasons, among which:
- The moment of epithelial compensation. It is known that smokers differ from healthy people by a symptom of narrowed vessels, which causes a decreased secretion of the skin. With the abandonment of the addiction, the sebaceous glands in the epithelial tissues begin to work with excessive activity, releasing too much fat. This leads to clogging of the pores and the formation of acne and blackheads.
- Hormonal disbalance. The endocrine system is closely related to the nervous system. With the abolition of smoking, the nervous system starts to work uncontrollably due to non-receipt of the drug. It turns out hormonal imbalance: the content of these or other hormones deviate from the norm in the direction of their strong increase or, conversely, decrease.
- An allergic crisis. A fairly common cause of exacerbation of chronic allergic dermatological diseases, which is also characterized by a rash and inflammation.
