Acne is usually reported more often while smoking than after quitting, but some ex-smokers report 'quit zits' within the first month of quitting. They may be related to stress or dietary changes during quitting, or to a temporary chemical or hormonal imbalance. They are not fun, but also not permanent, and proof that your quit is on the right track. If over-the-counter products aren't effective, see your doctor for medication.
