Rules for neck and decollete care
We are accustomed to diligently caring for our facial skin, but often neglect the neck and décolleté areas. However, it is precisely in these regions that the skin is very thin, delicate, and prone to rapid aging.
The skin on the neck is 20-30% thinner than the skin on the face, and there is no well-defined subcutaneous fat layer in this area. Additionally, there are no active sebaceous glands in this region, making the epidermis in constant need of protection.
Both facial and neck skin require the same components: hyaluronic acid for hydration, peptides for wrinkle prevention, and antioxidants for protection against oxidative stress. As we age, skincare products should contain more active ingredients.
Caring for the neck and decollete should involve the same stages as caring for the face: cleansing, moisturizing, and, of course, sun protection.
Cleansing and toning: Choose gentle products without alcohol. For deep cleansing, you can use mild peels.
Moisturizing: Apply serum and then cream to the upper chest and neck. All movements should be gentle and smooth, going from the collarbones to the jawline. In the evening, apply cosmetic products 30 minutes before bedtime to allow them to be absorbed.
Protection: Apply sunscreen to the neck and decollete; during warm seasons, they are not covered by clothing and are exposed to sunlight.
Masks: You can use the same masks you typically use for your face, excluding mattifying products designed for oily skin. Apply the mask 1-2 times a week.
- Choose natural fabrics that do not cause redness and allergic reactions in the décolleté and neck area.
- Engage in sports to maintain overall skin tone.
- Maintain good posture.
- When using a smartphone, try to hold it at eye level rather than lowering your head.
- Regularly perform massages.
- Monitor your sleep routine and aim for at least 7 hours of sleep per night.
