Bad Lifestyle Habits Impact on Your Facial Ageing
These photos speak for themselves. Drinking, smoking and junk food affect our appearance in the long-term. The 42-year-old freelance journalist Anna Magee worked with a forensic artist to create images of what she’d look like 10 years from now adopting different lifestyles.  She admits to having cheek fillers and Botox injections in the past.

The three projected images show her face 10 years from now:


After 10 years of smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. Please note the deep wrinkles, dark under-eye circles, and sagging brow, eyelids, and cheeks.

A survey of over 1,000 Yahoo! users found that only 28% of smokers admit to being addicted and dependent on cigarettes with 72% claiming “I choose when I smoke and can go without at any time.” 41% of the people ages 18-34 said they only smoke in a social setting, but if you want to avoid these nasty signs of aging, every cigarette may count. Fifty-six percent of people ages 18-34 said they smoke when drinking.

Blood vessels enlarge to cause permanent flushing and cause visible redness and capillaries in the face. Skin becomes dehydrated leading to the onset of lines and wrinkles.


After 10 years of bad eating habits

According to acclaimed dermatologist Dr. Perricone, a diet high in sugar and high glycaemic carbohydrates can lead to thick skin that wrinkles and sags, a waxy bloated face, and acne.

These images should reinforce the message for everyone! It is in our best interest to give up smoking and cut back on bad food habits and drinking.



  • This should be a wake up call for everyone. I don’t drink very much, don’t smoke but I have had bad eating habits in the past. I have been changing this but I love to bake and I am a foodie, so it has been difficult not to slide back from time to time. I do not intend to get any cosmetic surgery or even botox. These pictures encourage me to keep working on my food habits. Thanks
