Ladies, it's time to put the phones down and listen up as top dermatologists have said that taking selfies can cause wrinkles.
According to The Telegraph, experts believe that regularly exposing our faces to light and radiation from smartphones is making us age faster.
And the effects selfie-taking can have on the skin is so bad, doctors can even tell which hand a person holds their phone in from checking the side of their face that is most damaged.
London-based doctor Simon Zoakei said: “Those who take a lot of selfies and bloggers should worry.”
“Even the blue light we get from our screens can damage our skin," he added.
And Dr Zoakei said wearing suncream isn't enough to protect skin from the harmful rays our beloved phones are emitting.
He said: “I think there is a gap in the market for products which protect because I know there are people who take lots of selfies, and bloggers who come to me and I have seen that there is damage there.”
“It's a different wavelength of radiation so sunscreen will not block it.”
The warning has been repeated by Dr Zein Obagi of the Obagi Skin Health Institute in Beverley Hills who said selfie taking causes a “dull dirty looking texture that you cannot identify on one side of the face”.
Dr Obagi suggested that saturating the skin with anti-oxidants could help prevent damage.
He said: “I think we need to create a defence mechanism, light has some sort of magnetic think that is happening to the skin."
“This magnetic field is altering the minerals in the skin. A sunscreen will not protect you."
"But if you saturate your skin with anti-oxidants it can help prevent DNA damage from electronic devices.”
