Guys, we all love taking selfies. It gives us pleasure when we get clicked. Study shows that girls love more to be clicked then boys. Admit it – we feel a certain thrill when we take a selfie that is just right and makes us look utterly fabulous. Blame it on Snapchat and Instagram, but holding our phone at an arm’s distance while pouting away at the camera has pretty much become part of our daily life.
Sorry, We are crushing Your Insta and Snapchat perfect selfie dream. But stop taking selfies before You Start looking more older than your age. Yes, this has been proved that selfies are fun but selfies could actually be ageing your skin prematurely.
London-based lifestyle blogger, Mehreen Baig, investigated the harmful effects of a phone’s HEV light on our precious skin. No Women can Afford skin ageing.
26-year old Mehreen takes an average of 50 selfies every single day since she’s the model and photographer for her blog. Now that’s a hell of a lot of selfies right? When she started noticing a few problems with her complexion, including freckles, pigmentation, larger pores and dark circles, she decided to pay a visit to a dermat – Dr. Simon Zokaie.
The cosmetic dermatologist had a detailed chat with her, asked her to take off her makeup and explained to her that the 3 main factors that damage our skin are sun exposure, pollution, and HEV light. He also examined her face under a skin scanner, which is a robotic machine that analyzes pore sizes, wrinkles, sun damage, skin damage from pollution and moisture, and HEV damage.
