Blackberry Botox

Have you heard of "Blackberry Botox"?

This is what dermatologists call an injection to fill the lines we get between our brows from squinting at our tiny phone screen.

Or so we thought…according to a study from the Universite de Montreal women are more susceptible to stress than men after viewing negative stories in the media. The level of cortisol, a stress hormone, spiked more in the ladies than in men. And cortisol can show up on the face, causing premature aging, explains Dr. Amy Wechsler, author of The Mind-Beauty Connection. "When you are stressed, cortisol is released by the adrenals and will breakdown skin tissue", says Wechsler.  This can disrupt the formation of new collagen- the substance that holds skin together - causing wrinkles and dull-looking skin. Wrinkles appear where the skin is the thinnest : around the mouth, eyes and forehead -  causing dull-looking skin.
