Myth: Smoking keeps me thin. Fact: Exercise and diet keep you thin, not smoking.

Did you know smoking can actually cause cellulite, because it stops the blood flowing in your capillaries and damages the connective tissue? Cigarettes also weaken your skin which can create the ‘orange peel’ look of cellulite.

Some people find that they put on weight when they quit smoking, but that’s because they replace their habit of smoking with eating unhealthy snacks.

The important thing when you quit smoking is to keep active, eat healthy food and don’t get stuck in the cycle of eating and lazing around the house!
