Is Vaping Bad for Your Skin?
We all know that cigarettes are bad for your skin, just one look at these identical twins, the one on a left doesn’t smoke, and the one on the right does, and you can clearly see the effects.
But does vaping effect your skin the same way?
E-cigarettes are good alternative to cigarettes if you are trying to quit smoking, but these days some people are vaping even if they never smoked cigarettes at all. There are a lot of myths floating around that vaping is completely harmless. While it certainly isn’t as bad as cigarettes, vaping still contains chemicals that aren’t good for you.
Here at The Skiny we were eager to find out: is vaping bad for your skin?
Unfortunately, yes it is. Here’s the skin side effect you can expect from vaping.
We’ve all seen the circle of wrinkles around someones mouth, a tell tale sign of a smoker that occurs from puckering the lips while smoking. When vaping, the same sucking and puckering of the lips happens, so unfortunately you can’t avoid this one. However, we all deserve a great smile, so if you want to get rid of those wrinkles, you can try new lip treatments such as Emervel Lips.
E-cigarettes contain propylene glycol which is a chemical that attracts and holds water. Meaning it is literally sucking you dry! We all know moisture is key to youthful skin so this is bad, bad news for anti-aging!
Electronic cigarettes don’t contain tobacco, but they do contain nicotine. Nicotine constricts the veins so there is less blood flow to the skin, which basically starves the skin of the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. When your skin is depleted in nutrients it can dry out, wrinkle, and get saggy.
So if you think you can get away with vaping without wearing the evidence, unfortunately you are wrong. Vaping is a great step towards quitting smoking, but hopefully you can make the final step towards not smoking anything at all.
If you are a trend follower, this is one trend you won’t want to follow. Your skin will thank you for it.
