Where beauty is concerned, it’s easy to treat the face and the body as entirely separate matters. The problem with this approach is that the middle ground often gets neglected, leaving the necks and decolletage of many women lacking in moisture, sun protection and care.
“The décolletage is the forgotten area,” New York dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, told Glamour.com. “Even women who wear SPF on their face daily forget that their chest and neck are just as exposed. So apply the same sunscreen-antioxidant combo as on your face – it’ll do the job a few inches down.”
It’s extremely important to wear sun protection all over, and the chest is no exception. But caring for your decolletage involves more than just applying an SPF product on a regular basis. Exfoliating, moisturizing and applying anti-aging products as needed is extremely beneficial and valuable.
Young ladies may not think about it now, but the delicate skin near their necks will be especially susceptible to aging as they grow older. Use a moisturizer with retinol to help delay the onset of fine lines and wrinkles.
