How to remove tobacco stains from skin




Smoking is injurious to health. This is a cliché with which we are all familiar. Yet did you know that smoking not only wreaks havoc on our respiratory system, but it also wrecks our skin? This is because tobacco contains nicotine which can absorb into our skin along with moisture and consequently stain it.

You obviously wouldn’t want yellowish skin inclining towards brown? Tobacco- stained skin makes you an anomaly within society and people may shy away from you. This humiliation is something which each of us, smokers or ex-smokers wants to avoid.

Owing to these very reasons, we have combined some simple home remedies which will enable you to get out these annoying tobacco stains from your skin, and end up with a healthy, glowing skin.


Method One (Using lemon juice and pumice stone)

Lemon is a natural cleanser and is known across the globe for being an astringent. Because of its disinfecting properties, we would be deploying lemon juice to remove all sorts of tobacco stains from skin.     

Things that you will require:

· Bowl
· Lemon juice
· Pumice stone

Steps that you need to take:


1.   Since, our protagonist in this method is lemon juice, so primarily you have to take a bowl and pour some lemon juice in it.

2.   Soak the part of your skin which has been stained with tobacco in this lemon juice for some time, approximately 5 minutes. This will agitate the stain particles, prompting them to come out.

3.   After five minutes, take it out of the lemon juice and start scrubbing it lightly. Make use of a pumice stone for this scrubbing.

4.   Continue repeating this process of alternately soaking and scrubbing, until you get rid of these aggravating tobacco stains from your skin.

Warning:

Do not scrub vigorously with pumice stone. Keep it gentle, as excessive scrubbing can irritate and damage your skin.


Method Two (Using Nail Polish Remover)

You must have made use of nail polish remover to remove your nail enamel. But did you know that nail polish remover can also work wonders for any tobacco-stained skin as well? If you didn’t, then it is time to experiment with your nail enamel remover. Read below to know about the detail procedure.


Things that you will require:

Steps that you need to take:

1.   The steps are pretty simple. All you have to do is take a cotton ball and moisten it with nail polish remover.

3.   The chemicals present inside the remover will work on the nicotine, helping it to get out of your skin.

4.   Keep replacing the cotton balls as required and continue using nail polish remover until the tobacco stain is no longer visible.

                             Method Three (Using Aspirin)

Yellowish-brown stained fingers are a smoker’s tell-tale signs. To get rid of these stains, try using aspirin. Aspirin not only treats your body pains and fever but it can also work as a strong exfoliate for calloused skin, so that rough layers of skin along with the nicotine embedded in  them can be removed.

Things that you will require:

· 2 or 3 uncoated aspirin tablets
· Spoon
· Bowl
· Hot water
· 1 table spoon of lemon juice
· Soap
· Moisturizing cream

  Steps that you need to take:

1.   First of all you need to make an aspirin solution.

2.   To make this solution, take two or three uncoated aspirin tablets.

3.   Crush these tablets in a small bowl with the help of a spoon.

4.   Pour hot water in this bowl and stir with the spoon to make an aspirin solution.

5.   Add 1 table spoon of lemon juice to this solution to further enhance its exfoliating and cleansing properties.

6.   Soak your skin in this solution for almost 15 to 20 minutes.

7.   Afterwards scrub your skin gently and wash with soap.

8.   Repeat this process until the tobacco stain on skin disappears.

9.   At the end moisturize your skin with any moisturizing cream or vitamin E oil. If you keep your skin moisturized, you will end up with a healthy, glowing skin, free of all stains.

Tips and Warnings

1.   Make sure that you do not nurse an aspirin infection before embarking upon this method. This is because aspirin seeps into your skin and can cause a severe reaction.

2.   This process can be repeated once or twice a week to obtain satisfactory results.
