Smoking makes you look older

DHAKA: A study of 79 pairs of twins — each with one smoker and one non-smoker — indicates that cigarette users are likely to get wrinkles and bags under their eyes at a more accelerated pace than their genetically identical counterparts.

Unbiased judges, who had no prior knowledge of the twins smoking status, said that the smoker looked older more than 50 percent of the time.

The twins were primarily female and in their late 40s.

“Smoking makes you look old,” Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi told Reuters. “That’s all there is to it.”
