We focus so much on the health and appearance of our facial skin, it can be easy to forget that the neck and chest need just as much attention. In fact, because the skin in these areas is so much thinner and more delicate than elsewhere, they need extra care to avoid becoming prematurely aged.  However, with the right products, taking care of those areas is easier than you might think!

Ditch the Dead Cells

Exfoliation is an important step in the skincare routine, yet many of us skip it. More than just an effective way to rid the skin of the dead, dull cells that make it look older than it is, exfoliation allows your skincare treatments to work optimally, so you get the results you want in minimal time. Don’t forget, because the skin on the neck and chest is so much more delicate, you need to use a gentle treatment with natural ingredients, such as the alpha-hydroxy fruit acids found in the Glowpeel exfoliating serum.

Feed and Fortify

The skin on your neck and chest is thinner and often drier than facial skin, making it more prone to showing signs of premature aging. While it’s tempting to simply slather the skin with your regular lotion after a shower, a peptide-rich cream will provide much-needed nourishment, encouraging the production of skin-fortifying protein fibers such as collagen and elastin.  Using a treatment like Revivatone that’s specifically formulated for the neck and chest will improve density and elasticity, so skin becomes more resistant to damage and your décolleté remains smooth and wrinkle-free.

Erase Imperfections

Blemishes, scars and overexposure to the sun lead to age spots and discoloration which have an aging effect on the neck and chest skin. Lightening areas of hyperpigmentation and fading the severity of skin irregularities will create a brighter, evenly toned, more youthful appearance. Make sure the product you use contains safe ingredients that effectively lighten the skin without causing long-term damage; with a blend of naturally brightening botanical extracts, Juvabrite is the ideal choice for a clear, healthy tone that’s free from aging imperfections.

Preserve and Protect

While you may have been careful over the years to prevent damage from occurring on the neck and chest, these vulnerable areas of skin need ongoing TLC to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance. Even on overcast days, using skincare products with SPF is crucial to protect from UV damage and photo-aging. Containing SPF 30, the Dermaxsol daily moisturizing cream is perfect; lightweight and easily absorbed, it can be applied to the skin every morning for all-day protection. Neck and chest skin will also benefit from its humectant properties, with ingredients such as beeswax and glycerin to lock in moisture for long-lasting softness.
