When it comes to anti-ageing, we tend to focus on our face and neglect our neckline area.
Also known as the décolletage, our neck is one of the first areas to shown signs of ageing because the skin in this area is thinner, with less elasticity. Additionally, most clothing leaves the décolletage exposed, so it is exposed to more UV rays – increasing the likelihood of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
To maintain a smooth and youthful décolletage, you must nourish the area with cosmeceutical-grade skincare, just as you would for your face.
Here are the three easiest ways to care for your décolletage:
The skin’s a lot thinner on your décolletage, and it doesn’t have as many oil glands – which means this area is prone to dehydration, increasing the appearance of wrinkles. It’s important to keep the area well hydrated using botanical emollients like jojoba.
You By Sia’s Enhance is a luxurious body enhancing lotion that uses jojoba and vitamin E, both well known for their nourishing and protecting properties.
I like to use the pads of my fingers to press skinare into the neck and décolletage, applying the product in gentle upward strokes. Never tug at the skin or pull downwards.
When we’re talking about skincare (especially for your décolletage), we have to talk sunscreen. The delicate skin on our décolletage is often overlooked when we apply sunscreen, and it really needs the extra protection! Always remember to slather on a layer of physical sun protection from the chest and up – especially if you’re wearing a lower neckline during the day!
Treating troublesome areas with our Regen Pen can be an effective alternative to cosmetic surgery, laser resurfacing and chemical peels. While these procedures carry significant risk of burning, scarring, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation, treatment with the Regen Pen is an effective and comfortable way to address the signs of ageing. Our Skin Needling treatment tightens and rejuvenates the skin, targeting ageing concerns at the skin’s foundation, supporting tissue production for lasting results.
