Scientists link selfies to Narcissism, Addiction and Mental Illness

Selfies May Damage Your Skin, Cause Wrinkles

Hey guys take a note!! Everyone loves to click a best selfie and sometimes we fail to click the best one and we stop only when we find ourselves the best. But doing this can harm us…….!!!

Constantly exposing your face to the light and radiation from smartphones may damage your skin, speed up ageing and promote wrinkles, dermatologists have warned.

Doctors can tell which hand a person holds their phone in just by looking at which side of the face is most damaged, they 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,” said Simon Zoakei, Medical director of the Linia Skin Clinic in the UK.

Experts feel that electromagnetic radiation from mobile phones ages skin by damaging the DNA. It can cause breaks in the DNA strand which can prevent skin repairing itself and place oxidation stress on cells, ultimately promoting wrinkles.

“You start to see dull dirty looking texture that you cannot identify on one side of the face,” said Zein Obagi, who founded the Obagi Skin health institute in the US. “I think we need to create a defense mechanism, light has some sort of magnetic field that is altering the minerals in the skin. A sunscreen will not protect you,” said Obagi.

There have been many reports on people posing for a selfie with a gun to their head, resulting in death, or severe injury. Shocking isn’t it??

Besides the psychological harm that can be caused to the families of the people killing themselves with selfies, there have also been studies shown that selfies have links to narcissism and self-objectification. While this is a relatively small issue, it is something that is being noticed more and more by professionals. 

More serious psychological disorders to selfie-taking individuals include Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Body Dysmorphic Disorder (a chronic mental health condition in which the sufferer obsesses over perceived flaws with their body).

People are spending so much time taking glamour shots of themselves that they are letting this world slip right pass them. I, for one, will no longer stand by and watch the selfie take over. We have to stand up together, as Anti-Selfie Supporters and fight, not only for ourselves, but also for the people being plagued by the selfie. If we do not stand up for them, nobody else will.selfies3png
