How to remove the smell of cigarettes

The smell of cigarettes is not only unpleasant but also very harmful. The smoke contains chemicals that increase the risk of serious illnesses, such as cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and even sudden infant death syndrome.

Over time, smokers get used to the smell and do not realize how strongly it is felt by others. Read the OBOZREVATEL article on how to get rid of cigarette odor on skin, hair, and clothes.

How to get rid of smoke odor on skin and hair

Cigarette smoke leaves carcinogenic residues on all surfaces, especially on the skin. Scientists warn that this can lead to a number of diseases. Nicotine also affects the sweat glands, making you sweat more and emphasizing the pungent odor of sweat.

You can remove the odor from your hands by washing them in a solution of warm water, liquid soap, and baking soda. Note: add only a little baking soda. Lemon also acts as an odor neutralizer.

Regularly wiping your face with cotton pads will help reduce odor, but it may not be very convenient if you apply a layer of foundation on your skin every day.

In addition, smokers often use hand sanitizers, wiping not only their palms but also exposed parts of the body. You should also be careful here as hand sanitizers are usually made with alcohol, which can irritate sensitive skin.

Daily washing will help remove cigarette odor from your hair: be sure to use shampoo and conditioner. You can also try dry shampoo.

It is recommended to wash clothes soaked in the smell of smoke with a regular powder but with the addition of baking soda.

Oils should be diluted with water and should not be applied directly to the skin or clothing.
