I hardly need to mention that the face skin of smokers is rather like parchment than a fragrant rose. Homemade nourishing facial masks are what helps smokers make their skin dried with nicotine look much better. Facial masks are necessary for smokers, because nicotine damages the elastic layer of the skin and reduces skin collagen level. It results in losing essential vitamins as well as in impaired metabolism in the skin and oxygen deficiency.
Smoker’s Skin Problems
These problems go hand in hand with premature wrinkles as well as with dry and sallow skin. Not to mention early wrinkles around the eyes and the mouth. A smoker can resort to homemade remedies to make effects of smoking on their skin less negative.
Buckthorn and Sour Cream Facial Mask
The first remedy is a facial mask made with buckthorn and sour cream for restoring the tone of facial skin. For the mask, mix ground buckthorn berries with one tablespoon of sour cream. Apply on the face and neck and leave on for 15 minutes. Apply the mask 1-2 times a week.
Aloe and Honey Facial Mask
You can grind aloe leaves and mix them with one tablespoon of honey, and then apply the mixture on the face and neck.
Carrot and Persimmon Facial Mask
Carrot and persimmon are also healthy for the facial skin. They are rich in antioxidants and beta-carotene that are essential for smokers.
