Skin-Stretching Clips

The Karakuri Ribbon Scalp Stretcher Makes Looking Young Affordable

— October 1, 2012 — Fashion
If you've never thought of pulling your face into your scalp surgically to fight the signs of aging, this scalp stretcher is a non-invasive alternative.

The Japanese have come up with this crazy contraption to defy the aging process. The Karakuri Ribbon is a low-tech, anti-aging product designed to be worn daily and takes approximately three minutes to fasten securely. Coming only in black, this hairband-like piece can be hidden under your hair, but it's probably best not to wear this outdoors. To use, loop the rubber bands over your ears and hook the stretcher's combs into the elastics while concealing it under your locks. Over time, this will help to "fight sagging skin and thus reducing the wrinkles around your eyes and cheeks," according to the site.
