Dermatologist claims that taking selfies can cause skin cancer and other skin conditions


A growing number of dermatologists are claiming that regular exposure of the face to smartphones, usually as a result of taking selfies, can result in serious skin conditions. 

According to some doctors the regular exposure of light and electromagnetic radiation when taking a selfie can damage the skin and speed up the ageing process.

Nationalpost.com reports:

They even claim they can tell which hand a person holds their phone in just by looking at which side of the face is most damaged.

Speaking before this weekend’s FACE conference on aesthetics and anti-ageing, in London, Dr. Simon Zokaie, medical director of the Linia Skin Clinic in Harley Street, 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.

Most at risk are people who take lots of selfies, and bloggers who come to me. I have seen that there is damage and ageing taking place.

“It’s a different wavelength of radiation so sunscreen will not block it.”

His remarks were echoed by Dr. Zein Obagi, of the Obagi Skin Health Institute in Beverley Hills.

“Your cell phone will damage your skin,” he said. “It’s not documented, but in my clinical observation I can tell whether someone uses their right hand or left hand to hold their phone. You start to see a dull, dirty-looking texture you cannot identify on one side of the face.
