We all are addicted to our mobile devices. Unfortunately, for some of us, this habit will result in “tech neck.” This is defined as having the neck of a much older person as a result of looking down at your cell phone too often.
“Essentially, with the advent of smartphones, people are keeping their heads bent down and forward for hours and hours to look at their phones and tablets. This causes neck muscles to be shortened, thereby increasing the gravitational pull on the skin. Ultimately this results in sagging skin, double chins, marionette lines (those vertical lines from your lips to your chin) and loose jowls,” says Dr. Kiran Lohia, MD and Medical Director of Lumiere Dermatology, New Delhi.
Tips to Treat “Tech Neck”:
First, “don’t constantly keep your head down. Instead, hold your smartphone or tablet up to look at it so your chin stays parallel to the ground. Try and allocate some time away from your phone or tablet so that you can give your neck a bit of a rest,” advises Dr. Kiran.
Second, counteract the damage by using our Repairing Neck and Decollatage Treatment EVERY DAY, TWICE A DAY.
