You pay a lot of attention to your face, but when was the last time you thought about the area just below it? The delicate neck and décolleté area is often ignored when it comes to application of moisturizers and sunscreen, and is easily susceptible to dehydration and sun damage. As we age, the neck and jowls may start to show horizontal wrinkles and folds and begin to droop because of the daily gravitational pull.
The good news? You can slow the aging process with a small change in the way you sleep and the right products. One of the main reasons for wrinkles on the neck and bust is often sleeping on high pillows and sleeping on the side, so take care to sleep on the back. Then pamper with specific products for neck and décolleté rather than ordinary body lotions because the area is dedicate as the face. Finally, keep the area covered with sunscreen to prevent premature aging and sunspots, which is especially important here in the Middle East.
Our picks for neck and décolleté:
Neck: The skin on your neck can be thinner and more sensitive than the skin on your face yet just as prone to changes in pigment, elasticity, and texture―and, yes, to wrinkles. LIERAC Coherence Neck is a true winner in this category because it is loaded with collagen and Hyaluronic Acid. This is a perfect combination to plump and strengthen the fragile skin of the neck area to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Décolleté- The skin covering the upper chest is also prone to sagging and wrinkle even if the face still has a strong, supple complexion. Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream is very specialised product that works on toning and firming the skin by providing moisturization through the use of various natural ingredients that address even the most sensitive skin.
Sunscreen– Exuviance’s Age Reverse Day Repair SPF 20 does double duty as sunscreen and anti-aging repair. It not only protects against future damage but restores this delicate skin to youth by reducing fine lines and wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. Ideal for daily use for the face and neck.
