  5. Why do heroin addicts have bad skin?
Asked: 2017-11-15 19:43:34
I had a serious problem with heroin. I was shooting up for five times a day just to feel normal. I used to have really pretty skin, but now I have to cake on the makeup to hide sores and weird color issues. It’s only been about two weeks since I last used heroin, why does it make my skin so bad?

Some people who take heroin touch their face or pick excessively just like meth addicts do. It can also impact your hygiene, and not eating right and not drinking enough water can really cause acne and blotchy skin.

Your skin is super delicate, and heroin throws off your body’s balance. Using heroin for a long time makes your skin really dry which can actually cause infections and cysts. You can also end up with acne because you aren’t eating correctly and your body doesn’t have the right mix of vitamins and minerals to heal itself.
