A U.K study by British cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Michael Prager, has proved that long hours on the Pc ruin the facial features. This is common for woman since they work on computers for long hours.
Women do not realize that they are concentrating so hard that they end up frowning most of the times. Long use of Pc makes you vulnerable to what is known as ‘turtle neck’ or a second neck because of looking down at the screen for long. The neck muscles start becoming short and saggy because of this, adding up to 10 years of a woman’s actual age.
Cosmetic surgeon and consultant Dr. Anshuman Manaswi states that using a computer for long hours at a stretch will result in not only skin damage but a lot of other problems, “Women sitting in a particular position for long end up spoiling their posture.
Straining your eyes for long, no movement of neck muscles, no shoulder movement can be very harmful. “Exercising your upper body while sitting or taking short breaks in between is suggested by UK based cosmetic surgeon Dr Prager, which Dr Manaswi too agrees. He goes on to say,” When we do not flex our face muscles they retain a shape which we least expect. In severe cases one has to go in for medical and surgical methods.”
Viewing this from a scientific point of view, Dr Mohan Thomas, cosmetic surgeon says, “The major reasons for change ion skin are expressions while working on a PC and the electromagnetic waves coming from the computer screen.
These facial lines come because you are seriously engrossed in work that you tend to forget about your facial expressions. Secondly the electromagnetic radiation affects the pores of the skin. The best way to prevent this is to wash your face after using the computer and moisturize it accordingly with a gentle massage.”
