Selfies Are Ruining Your Beauty – Constantly Snapping Yourself Will Make You Ugly And Sick!
If you’re fond of selfies, you should know that they are not so harmful as everyone thinks.
Selfies have become all the rage in recent years – they’ve become so popular that even scientists have started doing research on the massive expansion. However, besides trying to learn why they’re so popular, they are also trying to determine if the phenomenon has some adverse side-effects.
Selfies’ effects on our psyche and social life are already well-known, but scientists have now found that constantly snapping selfies can have a detrimental effect on our physical appearance! As Daily Mail put it, “Selfies can be bad for your skin.” A few online bloggers have been complaining about the condition of their skin and wondered if there is a connection between selfies and skin aging. They were making about 50 selfies (!) a day, which begs the question if there is a relation. Mehrin Baig, one of the bloggers, has decided to do some research into the matter.
She went to see Simon Zokai, a dermatologist. “After the examination, Dr. Zokai told me that my skin is damaged by HEV rays, but the damage is still invisible due to it being confined to the deep tissues,” said Mehrin. “The damage will appear as age spots and blemishes on the skin, which are a direct result of HEV ray exposure, which come from computer and mobile phone screens,” she says.
But, what can you do to protect your skin from these harmful rays, considering sunscreen is out of the question? According to Dr. Zokai, the only preventative measure is an antioxidant serum which can stop the aging process, as well as creams rich in antioxidants. Of course, cutting down on selfies definitely reduces the problem.
