ARE SELFIES BAD FOR SKIN?

Let’s face it – we all LOVE selfies. Whether we’re snapping one by ourselves, with a group of friends, or (if you’re lucky!) a celebrity, we are selfie-loving people. But, is your go-to selfie pose causing premature aging of your skin? Keep reading to find out!

Ahhhh, yes, the duck face/pursed lips/kissing pose. We’ve all done it. And, it makes our cheekbones stand out like nobody’s business! But, I have bad news for you all – this selfie pose is the worst. It leads to fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth area, which nobody wants. Ever. You need to break out of your duck face habits and try something new that doesn’t cause premature aging, like these options below:

The simple smile selfie is ALWAYS a winner. And, everyone looks beautiful when they’re happy and smiling, am I right? So go ahead, say cheese.

You can always try the “look how cute my outfit is” selfie – besides, everyone wants to keep updated on your wardrobe! Also, if the angle is right, this pose can be very slimming. Now go buy that new top you’ve been dying to have so you can show it off in a Snapchat to all your friends!

Everyone loves a laid-back, nonchalant, “I can be serious” pose. The best part about this selfie? No face muscles have to be used. Perfection!

Let’s not forget about the “It’s finally Friday/Happy Weekend Ya’ll/TGIF” selfie that NEEDS to be taken once a week! Although this pose takes a few muscles in the face to work, it’s definitely not duck face muscles. You’re safe with this one.

So, there you have it – it’s possible to take pictures without causing wrinkles. Now go ahead, selfie away! -xo Kayla
