Is Your Face Looking Droopy? It Might Be A New Ailment Called “Smartphone Face”
I don't know how much stock to put into this, but there's a new ailment to worry about. It's called "Smartphone Face". Apparently, you are at risk if you are one of those people who spend their day staring down at their smartphones.
So, again, what EXACTLY is it? It happens when you keep your head tilted downward to stare at your phone all the time . . . the skin on your face may lose its tightness, and your facial muscles could lose their strength. And that can lead to sagging skin, drooping jowls, a double chin, and wrinkles from the corners of your mouth down to your chin.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says TONS of people are developing Smartphone Face without realizing it. And as a result, skin tightening treatments and chin implants are two of the fastest-rising cosmetic surgeries.
But supposedly there's another reason for the increase. Our smartphones aren't just warping our faces . . . video chatting makes us more aware than ever of how saggy our faces look, because of the lower-quality camera and unflattering angle.
