Ring Around The Neck
Think about all of the ways technology gets us through our days – we couldn’t do without it. But did you know that all of that time looking down at your cell phone, laptop or keyboard is aging your skin in one of the most obvious places? I’m talking about your neck. It makes perfect sense. When you squint you get crows feet. When you are constantly looking down, the skin on your neck wrinkles and sags, called “tree rings”.
Revolution Against Tech Neck
Considering the average person looks down at the cell phone 221 times a day, beauty experts have coined the new phrase “Tech Neck” to refer to the effects of repeated phone viewing. StriVectin, the number one manufacturer of anti-aging neck products, has produced a trifecta designed to power down the problem. To help prove that it works, they asked bloggers to try all three creams and write about their results.
Wondering how it worked for me? I’ll share that with you in a minute. First, here is a video from a woman who is buried in her computer 24/7 and gave it a try.
My job takes me from the runways to the boardroom, but I never go anywhere without my laptop. When I learned about Tech Neck it was a relief in a way, because it meant there was more than age behind my new neck lines, and I could do something about it.
I started with the NEW TL Advanced™ Light Tightening Neck Cream, which has Gravitite-CF Lifting Complex™ to give neck skin more elasticity and a patented NIA-114 technology to keep moisture in. It firms and tones for a more sculpted and youthful look. In other words, no more turkey wattle under your chin. The NEW StriVectin product has the same active ingredients as the original StriVectin® cream, only it’s a little lighter.
Within a few days I started using the second cream – the tried and true, original, StriVectin TL Advanced™ Tightening Neck Cream, which is the number one selling neck cream of all time. It’s a little thicker than the new formula. I applied it in the morning and before I went to bed.
The final part of the trial was the Tightening Neck Serum Roller, which was actually my favorite “on-the-go” product. The serum comes in a small applicator with a roller on top, which I can easily pop in my cosmetic bag. The formula is lightweight, non-greasy and has a fresh scent, which provides a little pick me up during the day. The serum is formulated with a combination of polymers and NIA-114™ technology and I have to admit, I’m hooked. I’ve made it part of my daily regimen.
If there is a bottom line to all of this I’d say consider StriVectin® if you are at all concerned about signs of aging in the area of the neck. Cell phones and computers are a part of our daily lives and as long as we’re looking down, neck wrinkles will begin popping up. Tech Neck is now a bona fide side effect and I don’t know about you, but I’m putting up a fight.
Stay looking beautiful and happy, and fight Tech Neck now!
