OROGOLD wants to congratulate you! You have finally taken the right step and kicked the habit that has been wreaking havoc on your health and skin for all these years: smoking. Although the damage is done, it may not be completely irreversible, especially if you include OROGOLD cosmetics in your skin recovery plan.
Smoker’s Face is, believe it or not, the medical term given to a set of skin characteristics which are caused from smoking. The smoke and toxins from cigarettes decrease the amount of collagen and elastin in your skin. These proteins keep our skin looking young and healthy.
Although these naturally decrease with age, smoking greatly speeds up the process. The characteristics of Smoker’s Face include, but are not limited to, large pores, dark circles, deep wrinkles, and gray coloring. As you can imagine, the longer you smoke, the more devastating the effects can be. Since the onset of these characteristics happen slowly over time, you may not be immediately aware of the negative transformation happening to your skin.
Quitting is the first step in skin recovery. No matter what interventions you take, if you continue to smoke, the negative side effects will negate any positive changes you make. There are two steps to restoring the appearance of your skin after smoking. First, you must use Oro Gold products to repair and prevent further damage to your skin. Secondly, you should learn how to properly apply makeup to diminish the imperfections.
Counteracting the effect of years must begin on the biological level. If you were to just skip this step and go straight to make up, you are going to be simply covering up bad skin instead of restoring and repairing anything. First, create a skin friendly diet and exercise routine that is easy to follow and commit too. Increase the number of fruits and vegetables in your diet, especially those with Vitamins C and A.
Exercise will help your heart and lungs return to proper functioning after years of smoking. You should start slow and increase your exercise regimen as you feel comfortable. The increased circulation will bring oxygen rich blood to all regions of your body, including your skin. Along with diet and exercise, you should use products that aid in improving the damaged look of skin. The sophisticated formulas of OROGOLD products like 24K Vitamin C Facial Cleanser and OROGOLD Moisturizing Day Cream will help alleviate the appearance of damaged skin.
On the Surface
Once you have your skin on the path to recovery, you can then design a makeup application that will diminish the appearance of Smoker’s Face while your skin heals. Use a liquid foundation. A primer can be an ex-smokers best tool in the makeup bag. There are several kinds, from silicon to water based. A primer can help even out the texture of your skin before you apply makeup. A liquid foundation can also help fill in the fine lines and wrinkles without making you look like you have layers and layers of makeup on. Blush will help add color back into your face, as well as a lightly tinted lip gloss. Now that you’ve stopped smoking, you can have the skin you have always wanted.
