Smoking causes wrinkles (deep ones) The repeated facial movements you make while puffing away on a cigarette (like pursing your lips together to drag on it and puckering to exhale its smoke) cause wrinkles. Squinting to see through the smoke you've exhaled does too. Make those movements repeatedly with skin whose elasticity is already compromised by the chemicals in the smoke, (as we previously discussed) and you have a recipe for wrinkle disaster. Ever seen those older women with lipstick bleeding up into the lines above their perma-pursed lips? Probably not the look you're going for.
In fact, the wrinkling that occurs as a result of smoking can be so pronounced and so alarming that there's even a website, age-me.com, that lets parents upload photos of their kids so they can see how pruned they might get if they decide to start smoking. Visuals are a powerful tool, and yes, you can upload your photo too.
