How To Care For Your Décolletage

Whether you call it décolletage or décolleté, the delicate area between a woman’s neck and lower chest (above where her breasts would be) needs to be treated with extra TLC, especially when you begin to age. Like our hands, the skin on the décolletage is a lot more susceptible to pigmentation and sun damage than the rest of our body, so keeping the skin nourished and protected should be a priority in your skincare regimen. Unsure where to start? Don’t worry, we’re here to help.

Body Scrub

Did you know that exfoliating your décolletage helps makes it look more youthful, instantly? You’d be amazed at how accumulated dead skin cells have the ability to dull skin tone. A good buff helps with circulation and leaves the skin looking radiant and healthy. Use a gentle scrub one to two times a week all over your body (especially your chest and neck) to achieve baby soft-feeling skin. This will also help with product penetration when you moisturise.

Here’s to no longer neglecting your neck and décolletage – okay? Smother your chest in SPF everyday, come rain or shine, and don’t forget the back of your hands to stop ageing, sun-damaged skin in its tracks. If you’re taking a dip or playing any form of sport outdoors, don’t forget to reapply every two hours.

Balms are for those who enjoy lightweight, easily absorbed formulas. After you’ve showered or bathed, take a pea-sized amount of this beautiful balm and apply it to the chest and neck using upward strokes. Refrain from applying the balm downwards – we want to prevent sagging and promote lift! You’ll find marine actives, tree fern extract and sea buckthorn oil in this powerfully potent formula designed to make the décolletage more radiant and youthful.

If the skin on your décolletage is drier than usual, we suggest opting for a nourishing cream. It’s thicker than a balm, therefore creating a thicker protection barrier. Although this is a cream, it soaks into the skin with ease, leaving zero sticky residue. We also love the applicator tip to ensure minimum product wastage. With summer coming up, we’re more likely to use self-tanning products and keeping your décolletage regularly moisturised helps products go on more evenly.
