Little-known benefit that quitting vaping can have on your appearance

Little-known benefit that quitting vaping can have on your appearance

Let's all have a smoke-free summer with glowing skin to match

Despite the risks becoming more and more well known, vaping still has much of the population in a chokehold - but there are benefits to giving it up.

There's just something about the flavoured clouds of smoke that many can't seem to give up.

No matter where you walk, it seems your path is littered with brightly coloured vapes.

Now more than ever, there are horror stories about what has gone wrong for people who took vaping to the extreme.

Take the story of 17-year-old Kyla Bright, who collapsed at a sleepover and almost died after vaping led to a burst hole in her lung.

She said after the ordeal: "I honestly thought they were harmless and wouldn't do anything to anyone, even though I had seen so many things about it. I just feel like everyone has that same view.

"But now I won't touch them. I wouldn't go near them. The situation has really scared me out of them."

In case the near-fatal accidents aren't enough to get you to stop puffing, maybe some of the benefits will sway you.

In this case, there are skin benefits to look forward to once you put the vapes down.

Improved hydration

According to Healthline, the nicotine that can be found in a lot of vape products actually narrows your blood vessels, which leads to a reduction in blood flow to your skin - and dries it out.

Giving up vapes could give your skin some much needed hydration.

Skin healing

Nicotine is not your friend, and can have lesser-known negative effects including slowing down your body’s ability to heal.

Smokers and vapers are at risk of experiencing slower recovery from wounds, surgeries, or skin conditions.

Reduced premature aging

Vaping and smoking exposes your skin to all kinds of harmful chemicals and toxins which are terrible for your skin.

These toxins have the ability to break down collagen and elastin in your skin, which can lead to premature aging, wrinkles and sagging.

Clearer complexion

If you suffer from skin conditions such as acne or eczema, inhaling toxins from vaping or cigarettes may worsen them.
