Your neck and chest are competing with your face for attention, they are constantly on display, and they are affected by the same factors that affect your face such as sun exposure, nutrition, and sleeping positions. In addition to all of the previously mentioned, we should keep in mind that this area is very vulnerable; it’s angle means severe sun exposure, bras and push-up bras don’t treat this area gently, and finally once wounded this area does’t really heal all that well. So don’t allow your décolletage to betray you and show signs of aging just because you can’t devote a few extra minutes of your day for its care! Read below for our tips.
1 || Sunscreen
Seems to be the magical answer to almost everything! Treat your neck and chest to a broad-spectrum sunscreen that is over 30 SPF. Apply daily just like you would for your face and re-apply if you expect to spend some time under the sun.
2 || Cleanse Your Skin Daily
Yes we know you take daily showers…but if you take your showers in the morning , you need to make sure you’re cleaning your chest at night and vice versa. Make sure the shower’s water is not too hot so it doesn’t strip your skin of its natural oils, and make sure you don’t take long showers; 5-6 minutes is ideal.
3 || Exfoliate
Gentle exfoliation is required. Keep it gentle and don’t over do it. 1-3 times a week is probably enough for this delicate area. You be the judge of that!
4 || Sheet Mask
