05 Sep Give your neck and chest some TLC.
This delicate skin needs extra care. We tend to focus on the face often neglecting skin on the chest and neck area called décolletage. It tends to be the last place that sunscreen is applied however; this area is particularly vulnerable to viable signs of aging since it tends to be more prone to natural collagen loss and sun damage. It is thinner, has fewer sebaceous glands, fewer lipids and fewer melanocytes (cells that produce pigment). We all know what happens as we age, we produce less collagen so our skin becomes less firm and plump, our ability to retain water diminishes and women produce less estrogen, which has an impact on cellular activity. Wrinkles happen due to the loss of skin elasticity, collagen loss, sun exposure and by sleeping on your side or stomach.
Using clinically tested skin care products, including sunscreen will help correct, protect and maintain healthy skin for a lifetime. There is also a range of treatment options that return that area to a more youthful appearance, improving crepey skin, uneven skin tone and sagging skin.
