Is Taking Selfie Can Harm Your Skin?

Too much exposure to mobile phone heat is not good for the skin. Unlike before, people now use mobile phones not just for calling or texting. We use it to get information from the Web and we download and use numerous apps which made it possible to do things with just the touch of our fingertips. But among these mobile phone features, the camera is probably the most used of them all. From taking pictures and preserving memories to taking selfies and show off.

But why it is harmful for the skin? The constant use of mobile phones, especially those who are relentlessly taking selfies may cause some harmful effects. The heat coming from mobile phones is known to promote the number of antigens that could cause allergies, especially to those who already a history in having several allergic reactions. Combining this heat to the use of nickel and cobalt in the phone trimmings could also make the skin red and itchy.

This will also make the skin always ready for a selfie without having to use any filters before posting it online.

It's time to take care of your skin. Taking a break from these long heat exposure from mobile phones will definitely improve skin health — try to trim down hours of phone calls to a minimum, lessen the amount of time playing games on the phone, and probably just take a few selfies instead of filling the phone’s memory with a lot of it. By using Proactiv to have that blemish free skin, the perfect selfie could just be a click away.
