Smoking Helps You Look Like You've Been Around

“You know smoking doesn’t do any favors for your face — or your lungs, or your heart, or just about any other part of your body, for that matter! — but a new study of twins hints at the ways the habit makes you look older than you really are…. [The people doing the study] identified a few major areas of accelerated aging in the faces of the smoking twins: The smokers’ upper eyelids drooped while the lower lids sagged, and they had more wrinkles around the mouth. The smokers were also more likely to have jowls, according to the study, which was published today in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.”
