If you really don’t want your “black to crack” then take care of your skin. Stop smoking, manage your time in the sun, and maintain a balanced diet. That’s the easy part. If you smoke, a new study says that antioxidants, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids may help your skin to appear younger.

Robert C. Spitale of Stanford University School of Medicine in California and  colleagues say cigarette smoking is well-known to be associated with accelerated skin aging, cardiovascular disease and lung cancer, in large part due to  oxidative stress.

“In this study, we explore the potential effects of commonly available oral  supplements containing antioxidants, vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids on 11  smokers compared to 17 non-smokers,” Spitale said in a statement. “At baseline  and after 12 weeks of supplementation, metabolomic analysis was performed on  serum by liquid and gas chromatography with mass spectroscopy. Furthermore,  clinical parameters of skin aging was assessed by three dermatologist raters who  did not know the subjects’ age and smoking status.”

The study, published in the journal Genome Medicine, found smokers who took  the supplement had an increase in skin elasticity, but non-smokers did not enjoy  the same benefit. The researchers said they found that while complexion analysis  software revealed decreases in the number of ultraviolet spots increased  elasticity in smokers but not in non-smokers.

Simply put, smoking ages skin and it does’nt have to be that way. Stop smoking and consider adding antioxidants and vitamins to reverse the results of oxidative stress. Black does’nt have to crack.
