Puff Away Your Look

Posted: January 14, 2011 in Announcements

You have made the decision to quit, but here comes the hard part: actually never to smoke again. (NOOooo) Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard that smoking is harzadous for your health, not to mention your wallet. So, if you need another reason to quit, look in the mirror…..yeahhh, tobacco ruins your look..

The chemicals in cigarette smoke, including nicotine, carbon monoxide, tar and lead, reduce blood flow to the skin, reduce circulating oxygen, and break down the skin’s collagen and elastin. All that leads to extensive wrinkling around the nose and mouth….and it’s permanent. Sounds bad huh..it also reduces the water content of the skin’s outer layer, making it appear drier and more fragile. If that isn’t bad enough, smoking is also associated with increased risk of psoriasis (A chronic skin disease characterized by dry red patches covered with scales), skin cancers and hair loss. So, in a nutshell if you want to live longer and lead a more beautiful life (physically), butt out!

As for my this year’s resolution, i guess i will start with this Lah!
