Focus on Neck and Décolleté: Smooth Out Your Wrinkles and Double Chin
We often forget to take care of the skin of our neck and décolleté, even though they’re the first areas to show signs of ageing. They deserve special attention and care – just admit it, how many times have you skipped these sensitive parts? Did you know how much they benefit from massage, and that you should apply most of your skin care on your neck as well?
Best Products for Décolleté
While you’re taking care of your skin and body, don’t forget about your neck. Your day and night routine should include a cream for neck and décolleté to counteract saggy skin. These products work in the same way your day cream does – they moisturise and prevent the formation of wrinkles. If you’d prefer one product that can do everything, try the Vichy Neovadiol Phytosculpt which remodels the contours of your face and neck. It contains wild fern extract that promotes elasticity and reduces skin folds – plus it’s hypoallergenic.
The nourishing Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus+ Neck cream tightens and brightens saggy skin of your décolleté thanks to a combination of alpha lipoic acid, vitamin B3 and vitamin C. It also contains SPF 25 to protect your skin from harmful sunlight.
It is no secret that sea algae are an important source of nutrients. Now you can benefit from their power thanks to the Thalgo Défi Fermeté firming serum which makes the skin of your décolleté more supple, firm and soft.
Hydration, Hydration, Hydration
You can’t fight wrinkles without using hyaluronic acid. This substance naturally occurs in the body and ensures a fantastic dose of hydration thanks to its ability to bind water. Focus on products which contain this precious ingredient – such as Emma Hardie Midas Touch firming cream for neck and décolleté with hyaluronic acid as well as a number of patented substances like Lifton in-Expert® and Neodermyl®. Its amazing formula will promote natural collagen production in your skin and increase its firmness and elasticity.
Fans of massage will love the Payot Suprême Jeunesse – it’s easy to apply thanks to a roll-on applicator, plus it tightens and brightens your skin with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.
Day and Night
Your skin’s regenerating ability usually works best at night, which is why you should make the most of it and use the Lancôme Rénergie Nuit Multi-Lift anti-wrinkle night cream suitable for face and décolleté. Its non-comedogenic formula smooths out the wrinkles on your neck, tightens the skin, and you’ll be able to see the first results after only 1 week.
For Special Occasions
If you’re going to a special event or a wedding, try some extra pampering care in the form of KORIKA SciBeauty sheet mask for décolleté. Apart from offering a safe tightening effect, the product also moisturises and refreshes your skin thanks to hyaluronic acid and extracts from purslane and roseroot.
Don’t have a suitable mask at home? No worries, you can create one by applying a thick layer of the Clarins Super Restorative Décolleté and Neck Concentrate with firming and anti-wrinkle effect, and leaving it on until it gets completely absorbed.
The Magic of Décolleté Massage
Massage is absolutely essential. Using a Gua Sha massage stone with an oil, cream or serum, massage your décolleté from left to right and back. But be careful to never move in the downward direction, because you might enhance the wrinkles. Then massage your neck in the upward direction, and finally proceed to your face.
Tip: Your hands are a great massage tool. Simply close them in a fist and massage your face with your knuckles.
How to get rid of a double chin?
The effect of a double chin is caused by the natural process of ageing. Sometimes it’s simply a sagging skin, other times it’s a combination of skin and fat deposits. You can’t stop the course of time, but with certain skincare tricks, you will be able to get rid of your double chin.
- Stop your bad habits. The way you sleep has a huge impact on your wrinkles and your double chin. Try not to sleep on your stomach or on one side all night.
- Water and diet. You should drink liquids especially in the morning and in the afternoon. In the evening our bodies tend to retain water, which is why you might wake up bloated.
- The right direction. When applying your cream and serum, proceed in the correct direction – from your décolleté upwards, and not in the opposite way. Massage the product into your skin to promote blood circulation and eliminate the formation of wrinkles as well as saggy skin.
