It may not be caused by the brightness of your screen but do you know about the creeping cryptid that is ‘Tech Neck’?⁣

Scrolling and surfing, shoulders slouched, neck creasing - if you've noticed two parallel lines starting to stretch across your neck, know you're not alone!⁣

Here are some tips for you on how to combat 'tech neck'.⁣

Tip 1

These deep wrinkles are usually the result of poor posture. Your head is deceptively heavy, and all that time spent staring down at your favorite memes can really add up. Remember to rest and reset, and try to read at face level.⁣

Tip 2

SPF shouldn't stop at your chin either! The skin around your neckline is thinner than your face and requires extra TLC with your favorite UVA & UVB ray blocker to shield itself from environmental stressors.⁣

Tip 3

Retinol, as always, is your superstar preventer. Wrinkles, dark spots and other imperfections can all be soothed by a regular application of your favorite Vitamin A serum prescribed by your local Vivo Skin Therapist!⁣


Tip 4

Treat these deep lines on your neck by a course of advanced skin treatments like chemical peels and micro-needling at your closest Vivo Skin Clinic.

Tip 5

Finally, you can encourage smooth, firm-looking skin by combating the problem directly with a specially formulated neckline moisturizer at home.⁣

Here are our top three:⁣

  1. Illuminate & Lift by Cosmedix
  2. Perfecting Neck & Decollete by PCA Skin
  3. Phytostat 9 ⁣Moisturiser by Aspect
