Did you know that you could age your face by hovering over your smartphone for several hours each day?
It is called ‘smartphone face,’ and is characterized by sagging jowls. The problem with smartphones is obvious if you look around the waiting room at the dentist, mechanic, or on the bus. Everybody is sitting around with their head tilted down, reading text messages, emails, and updating their favorite social websites.
Constantly tilting your head forward puts you at risk for developing loose skin around your face, caused by weakened connective muscle tissue underneath the skin. We’re talking about sagging jowls, deep lines (wrinkles) around the mouth, and a double chin.
It has been reported that chin implants are the newest cosmetic surgery trends, and experts speculate this upsurge could very well be from the damage being caused by today’s excessive cell-phone use.
To avoid the need for treatment of smartphone face in your future, eat a sensible diet, exercise daily, and limit the use of all technological devices that encourage your head to tilt downward.
