At Swiss Botany, we want the absolute best for your skin. When it comes to aging skin, we want you to look great at any age. This is why we wanted to share some facts about cell phone use and aging. The amount of cell phones in our world is probably the highest that anyone has ever seen. What does this mean for you? We want to share with you some information about aging skin from cell phones.
Facts about our Cell Phones
What did we do before all of us had a cell phone? We had real face to face conversations and we even called the pizza guy instead of using an app. Times have changed and we have all started to adapt in the best ways that we can. Research has shown some incredible facts about people and their cell phones. Some people seem very unhappy when they don't have their phone, and even socially awkward and nervous. So what does this have to do with your skin?
When we are constantly staring at our cell phones, we are getting HEV light directly onto our skin. HEV light is high-energy visible light and it can cause a lot of damage to the collagen in our skin. When our collagen is damaged, that means that our skin can start to look older in a faster amount of time than people who have lively amounts of collagen in their skin. That is why it is important for us to take some time during the day and night, and step away from our cell phones for a few hours. If you don't have to look at it, just don't!
What about Selfies?
We all love to take selfies, and let's face it, we love looking at them too! Did you know that taking selfies can also change your skin? The HEV light from your phone is going right into your skin each time that you take one! This HEV light is single handedly damaging the collagen in your skin. This is why we need to step away from our phones for a few hours a day. This could truly start to impact the way your face looks and you may even start to notice more and more fine lines and wrinkles.
