Selfies Make Your Nose Bigger

Taking the perfect selfie is an art.  The right place, the proper arm length and that face.  But your selfie is adding a bit to your nose.  A recent study found that our selfies add up to a 30% larger nose. It found that most smartphone cameras, particularly the ones on the front of the phone, distort the face when used for a close up causing your nose to look wider and thicker when it really isn’t. But don’t worry you selfie fiend you, there’s an easy way to fix it. Add some distance between the camera and your face! It’s that easy. The study found that photos taken five feet away had no distortions whatsoever, so the further you can get your phone away from your face the less distortion you’ll get in your pics. However if you have shorter arms you, you might want to turn your phone around and use the other camera instead. It doesn’t have the same wide-angle, fisheye effect that the front camera has. Better yet, if someone’s around, just ask them to take a photo for you.
