Are there benefits in electronic cigarettes?Feature of the week
Vaping – using electronic cigarettes that produce water vapour instead of smoke – is becoming incredibly popular as a way of giving up smoking or replacing cigarettes in your life. There are many reasons why vaping is better for you than tobacco smoking, and the main one is that it doesn’t contain the damaging chemicals that are in cigarette smoke. You can also choose from a wide range of interesting flavoured eliquids, cool accessories and chargers.
For women, one of the best things about switching from cigarettes to ecigs is the effect it can have on how you look and smell, and some of the changes are pretty much instant. Here are three of the ways vaping instead of smoking could even make you prettier:
No more nicotine stains
While ecigs can contain nicotine (which you will want if you are addicted to it and are using the ecig to replace smoking), the way it is delivered doesn’t stain in the way smoke does, so you will find you have whiter teeth, and you won’t end up with those tell-tale nicotine stains on your fingers and nails. If you bleach your hair, you will also be avoiding potential discolouration from smoke, which can in some cases make blonde hair look brassy or even green!
A better skin
It is well known that smoking ages the skin, because it damages collagen and elastin, making the skin less firm and more prone to wrinkles. It is not the nicotine in the cigarettes that does this but other toxins, so with an ecig you are more likely to see your skin become firmer, and slow down the aging process.
Smoking can also cause redness and inflammation of the skin as the immune system fights back against the toxins that smoking puts into the body, and the free radicals it produces. If your skin is prone to redness or visible blood vessels, then by switching to ecigs you may very well see an improvement fairly quickly.
No smoke smell
While you can’t see a smell, most people do find the smell of stale cigarette smoke unpleasant and off putting, and would definitely consider someone whose hair, breath and clothes always smelled of tobacco smoke to be less pretty. Ecigs do not cause the smell of smoke to cling to your clothes and hair, and will not make your breath smell of cigarettes. Instead, while they do have a smell, you can choose an eliquid with an aroma you like that you don’t mind smelling of, such as coconut or vanilla.
An ecig is not only a fairly trendy fashion accessory and a relaxing thing to use. By replacing an existing cigarette habit with vaping, you are inviting in all kinds of health benefits, and will also look much healthier and smell far nicer. Add to this the freedom of being able to use an ecig in lots of places where you can’t legally smoke, and it is clear to see why it is becoming such a popular alternative!
