Skin

Hey Folks,

I was brushing my teeth last night and it downed on me that my skin looks the best it's ever looked. Almost all of my life i've had terrible skin (acne, blemishes and all manner of red things :() so to actually see such a possitive change as this due to me stopping smoking was a pleasant surprise. I thought i'd see if anyone else has noticed their skin looking better after quitting?

  • God yes! :)

    I didn't think I had particularly bad skin previously but my goodness, the difference now is enormous. I've been told by many people that I look years younger and I was well chuffed the other day when a market researcher who had nabbed me in a weak moment couldn't believe I was in the '46-54' age bracket (or so she said anyway :o).

    In fact, quitting fags may be the best beauty aid ever.

  • Fab isn't it?

    My skin is definitely looking better, even though I'm only on day 9 and I've lost that grey look :D

    Well, 10mg of CO in a fag, 30-odd a day, - just eeeek - going to have an effect isn't it?

  • I noticed a difference too, as does my nail tech every time I see her! lol

    Ive always had "teenage" skin (even though im in my 30s now) so I cope with that, but the tone and condition and brightness is really quite wonderful!! :D

  • Definite improvement in skin, taste, smell and the whites of my eyes :D

  • Definite improvement in skin & like Lindy Loo said-'the whites of my eyes are white again!!!

  • I'm so pleased to read this thread to give me hope, my skin has never looked so bad as it has up to now, dry, spotty, blemished, grey, dark circles round my eyes and puffy face.

    I am just getting through day 1 and have drank loads of water today and had some fruit among other things - eaten well but healthy if you know what I mean.

  • Spots spot spots :rolleyes: :eek: :eek:

    Not funny :eek:

    I've had a couple on my chin, not nice!! :(

  • Skin feels 'softer' somehow. Doesn't look much different, not yet anyway. But I'll prob wake up tomorrow looking like Kate Moss - or maybe not :o

  • I had one on my chin :eek:

    30 years with no spot :eek:

    Better that what smoking might give us :)

    Annoying isn't it?

    Haven't had spots since I was like 20 but now :eek:

    But yes, it's better than the alternative!!

    Got one on my chin too, but it's on the jawline at the side, so annoying hahaha never had spots before in my life! I see it as all the cr4p coming out tho so it's all good :) :) also my skin is softer too x

  • I guess im still waiting on the Good Skin haha..Ive been quit now 3 weeks,my hair is softer for sure, and my nails seem to be growing faster (if thats possible) but my skin, my poor poor skin! its dry and blotchy and yucky, i look as if i have aged 10 years! and my eyes, the whites, i have to say look yuckier then before..maybe its like hitting rock bottom before it gets better haha, here is hoping!!

  • It is really difficult to say. We all seem to have different side effects of our quit :)

    I still have spots:eek:

    My quit is more important that anything else :)

    In fact I might even do my first ever calculation of how much money I haven't spent on fags :)that will put my spots into perspective :):)

    Good luck you are doing really well

    It feels great when you get to the point where you really do believe you are quit

    Thats A great idea! maybe i will aswell, wont be that much money but still.

  • Quite amazing isn't it, I definitely have little red cheeks ( I mean on my face lol) there new to me. Am sure it's not smoking that has brought about a rosy glow.

    Congrats your doing great my lovely:)
