The 7 best tips for caring for your neck and décolleté

We are exemplary when it comes to facial care: we peel, cream, apply masks every week, protect ourselves from the sun and undergo expensive beauty treatments. The neck and décolleté are often neglected - not with our tips!

The turtleneck era is slowly but surely coming to an end, we are showing more skin again. The perfect time to take us by the nose - because if we are honest, we will Neck and cleavage Often forgotten in the daily care routine. And that although the skin is particularly sensitive on these parts of the body and could actually use an extra helping of care.

The décolleté and neck also often reveal their true age and cannot easily be covered with foundation.

The skin between the neck and the base of the breasts is so thin because it hardly has any subcutaneous fatty tissue. In addition, there are very few sebum glands, which allows the skin to dry out quickly. In addition, the collagen fibers are less dense, which can lead to a faster loss of elasticity.

Last but not least, the neck and décolleté are often more exposed to the sun, which is why we shouldn't forget UV protection on these parts of the body. Reason enough to expand our care radius and devote more time to the neck and décolleté.

With these 7 tips for a beautiful neck and décolleté:

Protect yourself

1 Even when the sky is cloudy, UV rays damage our skin. Therefore it is best to lubricate daily with a high sun protection factor of at least SPF 30. Otherwise, longitudinal wrinkles on the décolleté can result in old age.

Tip: Place the sun cream next to your day cream so it won't be forgotten. If you have a moisturizing cream with an integrated SPF, simply spread it down to your cleavage. After a few times it becomes routine.

Sleep well

2 People who sleep on their stomach and back are welcome to skip this tip, because these sleeping positions are ideal and prevent unsightly wrinkles. If you lie on your side all night, your cleavage is in one position for hours, which can lead to wrinkles and creases.

Tip: Pay attention to a better sleeping position when falling asleep.

Warm shower

3 A hot shower after a stressful day at work can be very relaxing, but it is not recommended for our skin. Hot water quickly dries out sensitive skin and creates tension and, in the long term, cracks.

Tip: Take a cold shower or promote blood circulation with regular alternating showers.

Peel it

4 Exfoliating now and then pays off. Not only on the face, but also on the neck and décolleté. Due to the gentle abrasion, dead skin cells are removed and the skin shines with a new shine.

Tip: It is best to use a full body peeling in the shower once a week.

Apply thick

5 Creaming helps to supply the sensitive skin areas with moisture and thus prevents dried out areas. There are various creams that are precisely tailored to the skin of the neck and décolleté. In the picture gallery you can find our favorites and where you can buy them.

Tip: Apply the special cream thickly to the sensitive areas after showering and let it soak in before getting dressed.
