Do you know that the skin on the neck and décolletage is one of the first places on the body to show signs of ageing.
It’s important to remember to extend your skin care routine to two these body part as well, every day to maintain a youthful, healthy appearance.
Read our expert tips on caring for this delicate area.
The skin of neck and décolletage
The dermis, the layer that contains collagen, is very thin in that body area, making it more prone to ageing than other parts of the body. The skin on your neck and décolleté is thinner and has fewer oil glands and melanocytes than the other areas of the skin across your body and because of this the area is more prone to dryness and can result in the appearance of wrinkles.
There are a number of external factors that dictate how the skin on our neck and décolletage behaves. Exposure to UV, movement of the skin envelope and the weight and position of breast tissue will also affect these wrinkles. A lack of sunscreen application may be to blame as well as our cell phone addictions. Between sun exposure and the addition of looking at our phones or computer repeatedly, we are seeing neck and décolletage changes even earlier.
Did you know that experts noticed on our skin in those areas something called tech spots? Our computers and cell phones emit radiation to cause oxidative stress to the skin structures. This can also lead to premature dark spots, hyperpigmentation and other signs of premature ageing.
Now that you know how delicate the skin on your neck and décolletage is, it’s time to learn how to take care of it. Our expert is often asked if we can prevent wrinkles below your chin and if there any specific skincare products that can be used.
In general, we should be able to use your skin care products on your face, neck, and chest, but we can also look for skincare products specifically designed for your neck and décolletage on Esse&Co website.
Investing in good-quality skincare is a key to appropriate skincare for your skin type and concerns. Skincare products that are rich in peptides and vitamins that protect, repair and rehydrate the décolletage and neck area are crucial. Botanical ingredients and vitamin C are must-haves in any thorough skincare routine and they should be extended beyond the jawline as well. Vitamin C helps to repair free radical damage caused by sun exposure, pollution and inflammation, as well as treats and helps prevent pigmentation, whilst building collagen – creating plumper and healthier skin.
