Smoking & Acne ?!

I have never really thought about this before,

Does smoking [cigarette of course] affect acne in anyway?

Make it worse? Do nothing? Clear it up?

Input is appreciated.

One study done in Germany found that smoking increases the incidence of acne by 62%. However, a different study done in America (I think) found that smoking had a very slight beneficial effect on acne for teenage girls, but a generally negative effect for most other groups.. So the jury is still out on that one I think, but mostly, it's not good for acne..

I think it can cause acne or make it worse. Not only that, it can cause cancer, can increase chances of getting a heart attack, and is just generally horrible for our health. The moral of my story, dont smoke (this is coming from a CNA who works in a nursing home)
