TECH NECK: A Global Epidemic
Living in the modern digital age certainly has its benefits. We all enjoy the conveniences contemporary electronic technology offers, especially our mobile handheld devices. How did we ever live without the endless amounts of information, instant results and ability to interact and communicate, all at our fingertips?
However, with all the advantages we gain from mobile technology comes the risk of serious and permanent health problems.
Smartphone and tablet usage cause a skin wrinkling condition dubbed 'tech-neck'

These are the conditions:
Tech neck: Constantly looking down at your phone to text and check email will cause your neck skin to become loose and wrinkled
Forehead wrinkles: Small font on your phone screen will cause you to strain your eyes and also squint, which can lead to forehead wrinkles over time.
Saggy jaw: Excessive phone use leads to a saggy jawline, due to the fact that your head is constantly tilting down when you read messages and text. And the older you get, the skin's elasticity decreases, causing the skin to sag.
The real risk is developing a "turkey neck", even at a young age. The Telegraph reports,
"Dermatologists say that constant neck bending to look at screens is leading to sagging skin, dropping jowls and a distinct crease above the clavicalor collarbone, a condition they have dubbed ‘tech-neck.’
Dr Christopher Rowland Payne, Consultant Dermatologist said: “The problem of wrinkles and sagging of the jowls and neck used to begin in late middle age but, in the last 10 years, because of 'tech-neck', it has become a problem for a generation of younger women.”
The ‘tech-neck’ crease is found mostly in people aged 18 to 39 who have an average of three digital devices and peer at their screens up to 150 times a day – accelerating the impact of gravity and natural loss of the skin’s elasticity."
Skin wrinkles are a sensitive issue – to women & men for that matter & many are prepared to often spend huge sums of money attempting to hold back the clock without knowing what alternatives are there..

Why do I Need a Skin Firming Cream?
Like most of targeted skin care products, the Skin Firming Cream is a skin treatment deemed necessary after a serious study of the skin on the neck and upper chest. The skin in this area, called the "décolleté", is among the most delicate on the entire human body. Add in the fact that most people forget to apply sunblock to this area of the skin, and you find a reason for a targeted skin care product that lifts, firms, and tightens the loose skin on the neck and used as a solution to what people often call "Turkey Neck".

The skin on the neck can also become flail, thin, and loose from weight loss. As humans our skin grows with us, but when we lose weight, the skin has already stretched. The Skin Firming Cream can help avoid loose skin and works to tighten and treat even the deepest wrinkles and fine lines in the neck area.
The alternative Tech-Neck treatments are expensive & sometimes painful.
Simple facts about Neck lift: Anesthesia: Local with IV sedation
Average Treatment Cost: $3,500-$10,000
Duration Of Results: Long-lasting
Or the alternative: Ultherapy is a new FDA-approved procedure that claims to lift, tighten and tone skin. The treatment is indicated for lifting the eyebrow and lifting lax fats (beneath the chin) and neck tissue. The cost of Ultherapy is between $3000-$5000 and most people need 3 treatments. However, follow up treatments are recommended every 12 months to maintain results.

But Wrinkles have a sinister message we all should heed.
Studies have revealed that those with high wrinkle scores had lower bone density scores. The wrinkle effect is seen on all bones studied, hip, lumbar spine & heel. More wrinles always means less bone, no matter how old or fat or thin they are. See the KEEPS study.(Kronos Early Estrogen Prevention Study)

THE HIP BONE IS CONNECTED TO… How this could be is put down to the collagen connection.
Collagen is the protein that glues the skin together. It also holds bones together. Sagging & wrinkled skin is an outward sigh of collagen shortfall.
The collagen shortage extends far beyond what the eye can see: your bones

TAKE THE WRINKLE TEST.
Weak bones are at risk of snapping. As we age broken bones are more than just a nuisance - they can kill (usually thru shock) & impair mobility & independence.
Often a bone break is an indication of trouble. Risks of a break can be lowered through lifestyle changes & supplements. Not just in skin & bones: Wrinkles often predict our bone fracture risk.
A decades-long decrease in Vitamin D levels globally has greatly increased the prevalence of: stress fractures, bone fractures and hip fractures.
As far as we can determine Belles is the only skin treatment containing vitamin D3. A great way to remove wrinkles & improve bone strength.
