If I smoked about 30 puffs of a cigarette my whole life am can that actually cause wrinkles? Like will I wrinkle from that

Cigarettes and aging: No, just a few puffs won't cause accelerated aging and the appearance of wrinkles. Smoking cigarettes also appears to accelerate long term (oxidative) damage to arteries (blood vessels) so it's definitely a good idea to bug your friends and family to quit if at all possible. Try to stay out of too much sun or UV/tanning. Also don't overstretch your skin by supporting your head/face with your hand. ...Read more
