What’s The Deal With Your Décolletage? The Time to Care For It Is Now!

Perhaps in the world of facial cleansers, serums and chemicals peels, décolletage is a bit of a stranger. Like it sounds, the word is French, and describes the area below your chin (your neck and chest). There’s also a similar sounding phrase, décolleté. This is another French phrase which refers to the neckline of clothes that sit on this exact same area.

Now, why is the décolletage such a critical area of skin? Where’s all the time and attention (not to mention products) dedicated to keeping your neck and chest looking amazing? Thinking of the décolletage as simply an extension of your facial skin (in other words, the same skin that runs down from your face to your neck and through to your chest) is a very beneficial approach. These zones (face, neck, chest) are three parts of a larger area. This area ages, with time due to sun exposure and lifestyle choices. The various zones can all be treated with specific products formulated with concentrated ingredients targeted for its needs, as well as the exact same products you’re already using on your facial skin. So, your décolletage treatment plan doesn’t need a radical approach it just needs a tweakment or two. And a really clever multi-purpose product!

Dealing with Your Décolletage: Think Neck Chest and Face!

When a certain zone of skin gets all the attention and the others – even though as important – don’t get the same love, damage and age shows up quicker. This couldn’t be truer of the décolletage. These zones are often exposed; it’s thanks to the neckline of your clothes leaving them prone to wrinkles, age spots, sagging and redness. So now you may be sitting with a face that looks glowing with youth but a décolletage that doesn’t quite match up. Here’s where a one-stop hardworking product is really handy. And as it’s a serum, you’re using the best type of product to get concentrated active ingredients to combat ageing issues like sagging and even conditions like dehydration. Ingredients in serums really matter as you want your skin (overall as three zones) to reap the rewards of skin lifting, firming and obviously, de-ageing as a unit.

Age Buster

Introducing NIVEA’s Bakuchiol. While Retinol has long been hailed as one of skin’s most sought-after de-agers, Bakuchiol means a plant alternative to retinol that’s able to boost youth through collagen enhancement. Basically, it’s a bio retinol alternative and collagen charger, helping your skin to tighten, lift and smooth out. And also get thicker (and that’s what you want as you age). Find it in NIVEA Cellular Expert Lift 3-Zone Lifting Serum.

More Tips for Decolletage Care

Rather than reinventing your skincare routine to compliment your new face, neck and chest serum, look to what you already use on your face. It’s the same skin as your neck and chest, right? The amount that would cover your décolletage (after sweeping product on your facial skin) would be a pea-size amount. In other words, a pea-size amount for your face zone and then the same amount for both your neck and chest zones together. For nourishment and that all important Bakuchiol, use NIVEA Cellular Expert Lift Advanced Anti-Age Day Cream SPF15. While it contains an SPF of 15, you may not be at the life stage for this type of de-ageing moisturiser. And so, think prevention and slather on that SPF 50. This is a tip for every woman, no matter her age or stage. Choose your sun buddy based on your skin type whether oily, sensitive or if you need something de-ageing. Here are some options to keep your face, neck and chest protected and healthy.
