I've been a smoker for 3-4 years now. I usually smoke from a pack and a pack-and-a-half a day now. Are there any relations between smoking and acne?

P.S. I do, indeed, need to cut down.

I gave up smoking (cigarettes and weed) a year ago and have noticed no difference in my skin.

Although I'm sure my general health has improved a ton smile.gif

It varies on a person to person basis, namely how strong your liver is in filtering out all the chemicals and free radicals into your system through smoking.
topical:
tea tree oil soap.
qh mint julep mask.
hydrogen peroxide for occassional spot treatment.
shaving for exfoliation.
internally:
fish oil, 3g daily.

i dont think smoking contributes to acne so much as it just makes your skin seem dull and "sunken"...one of my friend's parents have smoked continually for over 20 years, and though they have no acne, their skin looks very thin, dry, and--well, DULL.

Acne or not, you should quit smoking because it's just plain bad for you AND everyone around you that have to breath in the second hand smoke. You've only been smoking for a few years so you should try to quit now because it only gets harder, the longer you are addicted.

I think having a toke of maryjane now and again is slightly different than smoking a pack a day of tobacco cigarettes but that's just my opinion. I have a friend who started smoking pot a lot more when they found a good supplier and she noticed a strong correllation between getting high on a regular basis and her face breaking out bad -- and she doesn't even have acne.

It's hard to tell if there is a link between smoking and acne. I think that you generally will look better, less sweaty, better colour etc if you stop smoking.

My friend is a chain smoker. He goes through almost a pack a day. Anyways, his acne is pretty small and mostly around his mouth, but his skin itself is like paper. Rough, weird texture, dull. So I think cigarettes will only do harm in someone that's really acne proned, like me. That's why it varies on a person to person basis. I used to smoke and didn't break out from it, but now if I'm around smoke it'll put spots on my face.
topical:
tea tree oil soap.
qh mint julep mask.
hydrogen peroxide for occassional spot treatment.
shaving for exfoliation.
internally:
fish oil, 3g daily.

Who's her supplier? Just kidding...Well I had cystic acne really bad before I ever smoked pot and I took accutane 5 years ago and no zits since.... I continue to smoke it because it helps me with anxiety ( so I don't see an acne-related reason to stop.) But that's just me.

sighz, i feel you, smokin pot is probably not the best solution but i cant help but to do it since i guess i'm so addicted since 5 years ago. i have scars too like most of the people here and i have a waiting period for the accutane to be totally out of my body to begin treatin my scars, so is it wrong to smoke weed n get high so time can fly by faster???

also i mean is there any link between getting stoned and your body's ability to heal its facial skin/scar?
I am scar free, today I feel beautiful and gorgeous for I have perfect skin once more, now and until forever. All of my scars have healed to the fullest extent.

My acne always seems to look worse when I am high, maybe just because i am a bit paranoid. I have cut down quite a bit (once or twice a week now) and my acne seems a little better, but I have also been on new meds. For me, it just seems to make it look worse at the time but I wake up the next morning and it isnt noticebly worse.
