Take a look in the mirror. Does the skin on your neck and jowls look wrinkly, creased and saggy? It may not just be age and sun damage that are causing it.

A new study is blaming smartphones for the resulting "tech neck." But how can your tech be causing skin damage? You may be surprised at the answer.

"Tech neck," as described by the International Business Times, "refers to a specific crease just above the collar bone that is caused by repeated bending of the neck to look at the screen of a portable device."

Is it a coincidence that the company that commissioned this research is also selling a skin cream that claims to fix it? Probably not. This amazing cream, which claims to increase skin firmness by 13% in the first use, will set you back almost $100.
