Almost like smoking. Why taking selfies is harmful and how it affects the skin

Selfies are dangerous for health

Experts warn that selfies are very harmful to the skin. The situation is exacerbated by the fact that it usually takes about 50 photos to get the perfect shot. Experts claim that people are accelerating the aging process by doing so, comparing the damage to sunbathing and smoking.

Nurse and cosmetologist Sarah Chini discovered that electromagnetic waves emitted by our phones can not only accelerate aging but do so at an alarming rate. Details are reported by NYP.

Selfies age the skin.

"I get a lot of bloggers and patients coming to me every day taking selfies and complaining about this problem, and it seems to be getting worse. The blue rays from smartphone screens can cause more damage than too much sunlight, so I would especially urge young people to be very careful," the expert says.

According to her, skin damage caused by selfies will become more common in the future with the advent of social media apps like Instagram and Snapchat. And women will be the first to suffer from it.

Selfies accelerate aging at an alarming rate.

After such an effect, the expert says, neither moisturizers nor sunscreens will help, as they "cannot reverse the damage already done." However, Chini recommends maintaining the body's water balance.

Meanwhile, Beverly Hills dermatologist Zane Obagi says he can easily tell how his clients use their phones to take selfies.

"I can tell if someone is holding their phone with their right or left hand. You see a dull, dirty texture that you can't identify on one side of the face," the doctor summarized.

Doctors can determine which hand a person is holding their smartphone with.
