The neck, shoulder, and breast part of the body are collectively referred to as the decollete area. This part of the skin is extremely sensitive. In fact, just as much as the face. However, it’s quite apparent that the face gets pretty much more attention. This is evident with the numerous skin care products that are specifically made for the face. Case in point: facial masks.
In recent years, the rising trends in fashion are ones that emphasize exposure of the cleavage area. This necessitated the need to come up with a new line of skin care products. Ones that skin care product manufacturers and consumers alike consider as suitable for the sensitive area that is the Décolletage.
However, it goes without saying that no matter how amazing a skin care product is, it’s not going to provide optimal results without responsible and educated use. People who are using the product must understand that regular and proper use is important. Especially if they opt for products that are slightly on the expensive side. It makes perfect sense to optimize expensive products to get the most value for their cost. A decollete cream with luxurious ingredients, for example, have to be used as indicated or prescribed.
Although wrinkles usually come with age, there is no direct correlation between the two. However, it’s undeniable that any young individual who gets wrinkles early on will look older than their age. Unfortunately, it’s not realistic nor sane to go around telling everyone that the wrinkles on the cleavage. What’s easier to do is keep a thorough skin care regimen.
The inevitability of wrinkles doesn’t mean that it’s not worth spending the time to put on skin care products regularly. As mentioned earlier, people perceive wrinkles as a sign of age. Having fewer visible wrinkles when one becomes older is a doable and commendable achievement. To be honest, there are few things that can be more flattering than hearing someone say one looks young for their age.
Using decollete cream and moisturizer regularly can provide the skin with sufficient nourishment. It also encourages the skin’s natural regenerative capabilities. The skin’s ability to retain collagen becomes notably better with thorough skin care applications. Of course, it’s not recommended to go ham and put on cream in an exaggerated amount and frequency. Finding a good balance is the key.
Additionally, one seemingly trivial yet significant way to further reduce the chances of getting wrinkles is to avoid sleeping on the side. Sleep wrinkles are real. Sleep with the back on the bed’s surface as much as possible. This way, it’s not only wrinkles that are avoided but also possible risks in compromising the spine’s neutral position.
Just like wrinkles, age spots are not directly correlated to age itself. The appearance of age spots is attributed to exposure to the sun’s harsh rays. UVA and UVB aren’t merely small issues to be shrugged off. Constant sun exposure can eventually cause the skin to manifest age spots. And having them on the breast is like having unsightly beacons that people notice immediately.
Age spots are also known as liver spots. Interestingly, just as the fact that it has nothing to do with age, there’s also no correlation with a liver condition as well. It’s just that it has a color that’s reminiscent of a liver. Nevertheless, it pays to avoid having age spots to form.
In terms of prevention, using sunscreen and staying in the shade as much as possible is advised. Still, just as it is with wrinkles, it can’t be prevented entirely. Those that still persist and appear can be dealt with using skin care products that can make them fade gradually. Exfoliation is the primary method of removing these spots.
Exfoliation itself can’t be effective enough, though. As the process itself involves deliberately removing a layer of the skin, the body might not be able to cope. To help the skin in producing new cells, collagen, and elastin, it’s practically necessary to use decolletage cream. But then again, for someone who is already using decolletage creams on regularly, it’s going to be an issue.
Uneven Skin Tone
While most uneven skin tone in the decolletage happens because of wearing clothing that only covers a specific area, it’s not always the case. Sure, spending a significant amount of time under the sun while wearing a bikini can cause the covered part to stay light.
But then there are cases where the skin simply has a gradual or striking discoloration. There are numerous causes that may lead to this. One notable reason is the application of makeup or skin care products in isolated areas of the skin.
Preventing uneven skin tone from becoming glaring enough to be noticeable might just be a futile attempt. Considering that one can’t always wear the same type of apparel that covers the same areas of the decolletage, it’s impractical to be too self-conscious about wearing the same types of clothing.
Similar to removing age spots, exfoliating is effective in putting skin color back on track. As new skin cells are produced, the skin tone goes back to its normal coloration. This, however, implies that regular exfoliation must be done. And this isn’t a bad thing at all, as scary as the thought of regularly shedding off a layer of skin might sound.
Exfoliation isn’t that much of a problem for someone who adheres to a thorough and regular skin care routine for their decolletage.
Natural Products, Naturally Healthier Skin
An important thing to keep in mind when sticking to a regular skin care regimen is to keep the products used as natural as possible. The downside of products that are full of chemical active ingredients is that they don’t provide long term benefits in skin care. What they provide is a positive yet fleeting result but ultimately results in the skin’s dependency on the products.
Although natural skin care products generally cost slightly more than ones that have plenty of chemical ingredients, it’s well worth the investment. The point of using skin care products, after all, is to help the skin improve the skin’s natural regenerative capabilities.
