Why do I look bad on Zoom?
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many men and women have spent countless hours on Zoom meetings, FaceTime calls with family, and other virtual communication platforms. This has led many people to notice flaws in their faces and bodies that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. Furthermore, the immense stress of the pandemic and quarantine restrictions has also contributed to early and/or progressive signs of aging. These factors – along with the unflattering nature of many wide-angled phone and camera lenses, poor lighting, and more – may have you feeling less than satisfied with your virtual visage. Common Zoom face complaints include:
- Double chin
- Large nose/nostrils
- Bags under eyes
- Tired appearance
- Dull skin
- Noticeable lines and wrinkles
- Thin hair/balding head
Tips for looking good on Zoom
First and foremost, it’s important to remember that, oftentimes, you are your own worst critic. However, being self-conscious about your appearance can understandably take a toll on your physical and emotional health, which can ultimately translate to problems in your relationship, career, and more. To combat this, here are a few helpful things you can do to improve your appearance while video chatting:
- Choose flattering clothing with simple colors or patterns
- Practice good hygiene
- Wear appropriate makeup
- Find a flattering light source
- Choose your best angle
While these tips can certainly make subtle improvements to your virtual look, cosmetic treatments and procedures are undoubtedly the best options for achieving gorgeous, natural-looking, long-lasting results.
