7 Skincare Tips For A Sexy Glowing DÉCOLLETAGE

Ever worn an off-shoulder blouse, and wondered why it looks so sexy and sultry? Well, it’s all thanks to your décolletage aka the clavicle. Ask anyone, the décolletage is one of the sexiest parts of your body –– and also one of the most ignored. The same skincare rules that apply to your face, also apply to your neck and chest. But, let’s be honest, how many of us actually follow through with this? Whether it’s swimsuit season, crop-top summers, or even off-shoulder autumns, taking care of your décolletage is a must. So, drop the laziness and follow through with these quick and easy skincare tips that’ll give you that sexy, glowing décolletage.

TIP #1 – Cleanse Away

Never ever forget to cleanse your neck and chest! Either use your face cleanser to do so, or go in with a gentle body wash when you’re in the shower.

TIP #2 – Exfoliate. Exfoliate. Exfoliate.

Make sure to slough away those dead skin cells that sit on your neck and chest too. This can be done twice to thrice a week. Instead of using an abrasive scrub, try exfoliating with some natural chemical peels. Papaya enzymes are probably the most gentle exfoliator out there, so why not give that a try?

TIP #3 – Moisturise

The skin around your neck and chest is a lot thinner than the rest of your body, so make sure it’s hydrated and moisturised round the clock. Dehydrated skin leads to wrinkles and fine lines –– which then makes your neck look a lot older. Instead of using a body lotion, however, use your face moisturiser to nourish these areas, as body lotions can be a little harsh on the skin.

TIP #4 – Mask It Up

Love a face mask Friday? Throw your neck and chest into the mix too! Masking is the best way to deep cleanse your pores, improve, texture, as well as lock in all the moisture. You can opt for hydrating masks or even DIY ones with hydrating and nourishing ingredients.

TIP #5 – Serve & Protect

Chant with me: SPF is key! SPF is sacrosanct! SPF cannot be skipped! You need to protect the skin around your decolletage, so always lather up with a good sunscreen. This area is privy to the premature signs of ageing like sun spots and fine lines, and exposure to harsh UV rays can also lead to skin cancer.

TIP #6 – Sleep Right

Sleeping on your stomach is never a good idea. This posture can cause wrinkles on your face and your decolletage too! Try facing upwards whenever you sleep, or opt for a silk pillowcase to prevent this from happening.

TIP #7 – Get The Blood Flowing

Exercising is a great way to work up a sweat and get your blood circulation going. This results in a glowing face and neck!
