The last thing you want is to have a beautiful, youthful face with sagging, wrinkled, or pigmented skin on your neck and chest. If you only focus your anti-aging care on your face, however, this is exactly what can happen.
Décolleté refers to your neck, chest, cleavage, and shoulder area, and these spots are prone to aging if you don’t care for them properly. They naturally have less elasticity than the skin on your face. So when you don’t implement and anti-aging skincare routine for these areas, they’re one of the fastest to age.
There’s still hope, however. Take a look at our tips for including your neck and décolleté into your normal anti-aging routine for a beautiful glow all over.
Properly cleansing your neck and chest is as important as cleansing your face. Use a quality anti-aging cleanser on these areas as well. But remember that this skin is more delicate than your face. Avoid harsh peels and exfoliants, instead choosing gentle exfoliation or a body brush to buff away dead skin cells.

We mentioned sun damage, and your neck and chest are highly prone to developing hyperpigmentation and age spots from daily sun exposure. When you use moisturizer and sunscreen on your face, be sure to include your neck and chest to combat the damage from daily sun exposure and keep these areas looking bright and youthful.
This routine is a great way to protect your neck and chest areas during the day, but you should also include a restorative night cream in your regimen. Choose a heavy, nourishing cream to apply to your neck and chest areas to help them recover from the environmental and sun damage of the day.
A moisturizing night cream with vitamins and antioxidants is a great way to protect your neck and chest while you sleep, but there are a few practical steps you can take to minimize damage and restore that glow.
You could be developing wrinkles while you sleep, due to sleeping on your side and allowing those creases to stay for hours on end. This can lead to permanent wrinkles over time. Since we spend so much of our lives sleeping, that’s a lot of time to undo the effects of anti-aging skincare treatments. Try to sleep on your back as much as possible to combat these wrinkles.
The skin on your neck and décolleté is thin and delicate, which leaves it prone to premature aging and sun damage that can significantly age you. Include these areas in your anti-aging skincare routine to help them stay youthful and protected for years to come.
