That’s Not Your Nose In a Selfie!

BestSelfieEverLet’s be real. The selfie has become all-encompassing for those who live and thrive on social media. But if selfies help mold your identify to strangers, it’s likely you only post your best ones.

Keeping that in-mind, a study found that many selfies we take make us believe our nose appears bigger than in reality. Last year nearly half of plastic surgeons were approached by people who were unhappy with their nose in selfies. Stop it.

It’s a matter of what your nose truly looks like in person, how it looks within arms-length, and how it appears in a portrait 5 feet away. For men and women, it’s about 30% larger from the selfie.

With an artificial 30% increase with your selfies – don’t go to a plastic surgeon asking him to shave imaginary parts-off so you can appear exactly like you do in a selfie. Do yourself a favor and come back to reality and get yourself a selfie stick.
