One of the effects of tobacco on the skin could be acne. This was proved by a recent study that proved that smoking leads to acne in women. This study was published in The British Journal of Dermatology. Though smoking has long been associated with premature aging of the skin, wrinkles and a leathery complexion, this is the first time that it has been linked to acne.

Study Findings
a. Researchers studied 1000 women between the ages of 25 to 50.
b. It was seen that 42 per cent of smokers had acne.
c. On the other hand, only 1 in 10 non-smokers had acne.
d. Smokers who had acne in their teens were four times more likely to have acne as an adult.
e. Non-inflammatory acne was common among smokers.
f. This type of acne has blocked pores and big blackheads.
g. It has a lesser degree of inflamed spots than normal acne.
