Forbes recently ran an article featuring a study by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. According to the study, smart phones can cause lines and creases in the face. Wrinkles, in other words.
“Lines and creases may develop if you spend an excessive amount of time texting and checking e-mail on your smartphone. The constant use may be causing some individuals to experience more lines and creases on their neck than would naturally appear. Even if your face maintains its youthful volume signs of aging on your neck can give you away.”
Of course, you’re probably not going to give up your smartphone. Indeed, the warning sounds like most other smartphone hysteria, in which people claim the devices will render us incapable of human relationships or turn us less intelligent.
It’s also possible that any lines that are occurring, on your neck or otherwise, are just the result of stress, and are not necessarily linked to the smart phone per se.
But the article does highlight the need to spread your wrinkle control regimen to other areas of your body, and not just your face. The healthy diet, exercise, and sleep routines that you put into place to keep your face young will help your neck too.
And you should also be sure that you’re using moisturizer all over your body, and not just on your face. Skin is skin, and a moisturizer like Derma Elastics will feed the skin what it needs no matter where it’s located.
Not that anyone couldn’t stand to spend a little less time playing Angry Birds!
