If you’re always connected in the digital world, then you may be familiar with the common pain known as “tech neck”. Affecting up to 50% of the population, frequent twinges and built-up tension can create longer term health issues if left untreated. It’s caused by repeatedly lowering your head down to look at a screen throughout the day, creating muscle tension across the shoulders and can even damage your spine over time. What’s more, this repetitive movement often ages your neck more quickly too, creating fine lines and wrinkles across your skin.
The good news is, you can condition your body to reverse neck pain, prevent future discomfort as well as smoothing out the skin across your neck. For best results, we recommend working these simple steps into your everyday skincare routine to boost your overall well-being and relaxation.
Set time limits
It’s so important to make sure you limit your screen time, making a conscious effort to give your body a break. Try developing a habit of taking a 3-minute break for every 15-20 minutes you use your device. If you work in a sedentary job, try breaking up your day with short walks, even if it’s just making an extra trip to the water cooler.
Tone your muscles
Sometimes, our skin needs an extra boost. Gently lift the muscles across the jowl and upper neck with the NuFACE Mini Facial Toner, energising your facial muscles for a lifted appearance. Simply treat the area below the jawline with gentle lifting motions to keep your contours in top shape.
