Dermatologists warn that e-cigarettes may be to blame for skin wrinkles and pimples in Generation Z, i.e. individuals born between 1997 and 2012, all of whom are under the age of 27.

Experts say the toxic chemicals in e-cigarettes destroy the components that make us look young.

Dr Buff Shergill, from the British Association of Dermatologists, says: 'Nicotine is the active ingredient and is linked to all sorts of skin problems, including pimples and psoriasis.'

It has been proven that electronic smoking in particular causes premature skin aging. Nicotine can tighten the elastic fibers in the skin.

Shergill explains that skin changes can be seen in a person's twenties if he is a smoker, and not in his forties.

This premature aging is caused by a combination of heat, chemicals, and decreased blood flow to the skin, caused by nicotine, which makes it difficult for the body to repair the skin, explains Asia Mola, a general physician at The Health Suite Medical Center.

Mola adds that the heat generated by e-cigarettes can also cause dry skin, leading to a dull and aged appearance.

Dry skin is an unwanted side effect of nicotine use, which can lead to wrinkles, because the collagen in the skin begins to deteriorate.

Toxic chemicals, including nicotine, can cause “thermal damage” where the body will try to “repair itself” from this damage, which may lead to other skin problems, including red, blotchy skin, because the beginning of the therapeutic response is inflammation.

“Inflammation can also produce factors that damage collagen and cause partial scarring,” says Shergill.
