BLG-2015 Chitter Chatter 3.3

Hear: How stars really get glam for an awards show. Proof that it isn’t easy being beautiful.

See: Garance Doré’s new stationery line. We’ll take two of everything. Thank you.

Know: Men over 40 take more selfies than women over 40. Surprised? Yeah, us too.

Check Out: The First Lady’s new “power brows.” Looks like we’re not the only ones obsessed with Cara Delevingne.

The Selfie as Skincare: Introducing Teledermatology

Selfies have taken the world by storm (it turns out, Doutzen Kroes really does wake up looking that good), and it seems the skincare industry could be their next stop. Think it sounds far-fetched? Maybe. But those photos you’ve snapped everywhere from your Big Game party to your sister’s wedding might, in fact, be a dermatologist’s window into your dermal distress.

Doutzen Kroes Selfie
Research published last week in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that, when it comes to an in-person visit versus sending a self-snapped photo, dermatologists generally agreed on patients’ skin troubles and conditions. Translation? Serious skincare on the go. I’ve never been a fan of taking my own picture, but snapping selfies in the name of healthy skin might be the perfect reason to get comfortable in front of the camera.

Introducing Instagram Direct, The Latest Social Media Obession

Fact: I have an Instagram obsession. I arrange my desk just so before snapping a photo (have to make sure my Vogue and venti Starbucks cup are both visible), debate over filters for way longer than I care to admit, and still get a rush when I’ve gained a follower. But before you judge me – I don’t do selfies. So really, I’m not that bad.

All About Instagram Direct

But now, with the rollout of Instagram Direct, I fear my addiction is about to grow worse. What is Instagram Direct? Essentially, it’s Snapchat-meets-Instagram. With the new technology, you can choose to send your photos and videos to certain friends rather than publish for everyone to see. Say you snap a pic only a few followers will find hilarious. Instead of publishing said photo and getting less than – gasp – 11 likes, you can just send it to the friends that will love it. So those shameless bathroom selfies? Who knows, maybe I’ll even partake.
