Medovie Research – How Brits Feel About Their Appearance on Video Calls

December 28, 2020 · 6 min read

Communicating through Zoom, Google Hangouts, FaceTime, and similar apps have become the new normal now that the pandemic is preventing everyone from conducting face-to-face meetings. While video calls are convenient alternatives, they have made people more conscious of their facial expressions, voice, tone, body language, and overall appearance. Many worry about how they look to those on the other end of the line.

Aside from processing non-verbal cues, people have to be aware of how they look on screen. Blemishes and skin flare-ups can reduce the confidence of people to face the camera up close.

Medovie, a trusted skincare company, recently surveyed how online appearance affects the way British adults take video calls. Surprisingly, around half of the respondents said they can’t stand the way they look during video calls because of skin problems.

 

Medovie Findings in Detail

Last October 2020, Medovie surveyed around 1,500 British adults age 16 years and above.

The study revealed that fifty percent (50%) of the Brits surveyed disliked seeing their faces during video calls. Thirty-four percent (34%) of them would rather avoid taking video calls than being displeased with how they look on screen.

 

Biggest areas of concern

 

Among the several areas of concern, skin problem sits second in the list since it’s one of the most observable details during video calls. Spotty, blotchy skin and the presence of conditions such as psoriasis and eczema are the leading cause of confidence loss and video call anxiety among the participants.

Most of the respondents easily got over their anxiety once the conference was over. However, twenty-three percent (23%) of the surveyed adults said their worries about skin problems have impacted their mental health beyond the duration of the online call. These respondents wished their skin was better and more presentable for video calls.

 

Seeking Practical and Scientific Solutions

When it comes to hiding skin problems during video calls, the younger respondents said that spotty and blotchy skin on the face, neck, and arms were their biggest concerns. Outbreaks of acne, psoriasis, and eczema were also at the top of the list of skin conditions that were challenging to hide.

 

Common skin problems that concerned the respondents

 

What are the causes of these skin problems? What are the common treatments available? Here’s a brief description of the skin issues that the respondents face:

 

•  Spotty and blotchy skin

This is described as the appearance of patchy blemishes on the skin. Streaks, spots, and marks of red or purple create a marbled skin appearance.

Oftentimes, blood circulation problems cause blotchy skin. Exposure to cold environments, which also affects blood flow, may also result in the mottled appearance of the skin.

Since there are different causes of mottled skin, there’s no one solution to treat them all. But for minor cases, home remedies that improve circulation and keep the body warm can reduce skin spots.

 

•  Flaky and dry skin

Insufficient production of sebum, a naturally produced oil by the skin, leads to skin dehydration. Dry skin then causes flaking, itchiness, and bumpy red patches on the surface.

Moisturizing lotions and topical creams that prevent skin dehydration are often recommended to alleviate the itchiness and remove flaking.

 

•  Acne

Acne develops when hair follicles become clogged with sebum and dead skin cells. This results in the appearance of multiple blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. In worse cases, these can leave permanent scars on the skin.

Diet, stress, hormonal changes, and medications can cause the onset of acne. Contrary to common belief, consuming greasy foods, chocolates, and applying cosmetics have little effect on acne.

Self-care remedies to keep the skin clean and healthy are often enough to treat acne. For more serious conditions, it’s highly recommended to see a dermatologist.

 

•  Psoriasis

Psoriasis is caused by the rapid multiplication of skin cells. It causes a build-up that results in the appearance of bumpy red patches on the skin covered with white scales. It can be itchy and painful, and in worse cases, it can crack and bleed.

There are topical ointments that slow down the growth of the cells. Moisturizers and creams can also be applied to reduce the itchiness of the affected area.

 

•  Eczema

Eczema is a long-lasting skin problem that causes the skin to turn red and become itchy. There’s no known permanent cure for this skin condition but the symptoms can be alleviated with the help of creams and ointments.

To overcome these skin problems, survey respondents resorted to practical solutions, while some sought more scientific and long-term remedies.

Five percent (5%) of the respondents said they wore hats, long-sleeved tops, polo necks, sunglasses, sweaters to hide their skin problems. On the other hand, fifteen percent (15%) considered going to a dermatologist to get treatment for their skin disorders.

The more convenient option to resolve skin problems is to apply Medovie’s effective topical solution.

Nadav Shraibom, the Scientific Founder at Medovie, described how video calls have put skincare in the spotlight this 2020. People had become more conscious of how they look on video calls more than they did when they used to go to personal meetups. This conclusion is backed by the fifty percent (50%) increase in the number of people going to Medovie for the proper treatment of their skin problems.

Those who trusted Medovie as a skincare brand that can treat common skin concerns weren’t disappointed with the results. Medovie’s innovative 3HX™ formula proved to be highly effective in treating skin problems internally and externally, providing long-lasting relief.
