It's beyond me why anyone would still want to smoke after knowing how unhealthy it is for every organ in the body. Perhaps I can appeal to our vain side by stating that it can also do a destructive number on your skin.

Formally, there are varying opinions on the effects of smoking on the skin. Some studies have demonstrated that smoking doesn't harm the skin that drastically, while others dispute those claims. My personal and professional opinion is that smoking adversely affects the skin in many ways. In fact, I can spot a smoker's skin immediately, as it tends to develop a very sallow appearance. Smokers also get a lot more blackheads, because the pores are so dilated due to the decrease of collagen in the skin. Smokers also don't heal as quickly as non-smokers, a consideration that has prompted many plastic surgeons to refuse to operate on smokers.
