What Your Face is Telling You: 3 Warning Signs to Look For

August 17, 2015 2 min read

Inspecting our faces on a daily basis for imperfections is typical of most people. Our faces are our focal point, and we want to appear our best. We trim, pluck, shave, wash and moisturize repeatedly to ensure we keep up with our hygiene. But if you were to look close enough, would you find warning signs of poor health? Here are three things your face may be telling you. 1. Yellow patches around the eyes, nose or mouth face This could be a sign of high cholesterol, which can take place on your face in the form of a condition called xanthelasma. "It’s often associated not only with high cholesterol but also with irregularities in the way the body metabolises fats in the blood, which can run in families," explains consultant dermatologist Dr Emma Starritt. How to treat it: "They can be treated with a TCA skin peel which essentially burns away layers of the skin in a controlled way and one treatment is often enough to get rid of melasma," says Dr Starrit. 2. Thread veins wine You may not want to hear it, but this could very well be a sign of ingesting too much red wine. "If someone with a tendency towards flushing drinks to excess night after night, in as little as two years the blood vessels lose tone and they can end up with permanent redness and thread veins," says Dr Nicholas Lowe, a dermatologist at London’s Cranley Clinic. How to treat it:  First try limiting your red wine intake, and switch to white instead. You can also head to the dermatologist to try five sessions of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). 3. Brown rings or patches on the neck sugar Called acanthosis nigricans, these dark rings or patches indicate that the body is becoming resistant to insulin because your diet is too high in sugar, increasing your risk of type-2 diabetes. How to treat it: Put down that donut and change your eating habits pronto. Switching to a diet low in sugar and refined carbs will keep the process from progressing, and perhaps even reverse it.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
