Prepare to bare a super smooth cleavage in your favorite lingerie or that little black dress
The skin on the décolletage (a French word, meaning wearing a low-neck dress), which refers to the chest area, is one of the first places you tend to show your age. Chest wrinkles affect millions of women around the world. As we all age, the skin on one’s chest tends to lose its elasticity due to a decreased production of collagen. In addition, this area does not have as many oil glands, which tends to dry out and look wrinkly. We also can’t forget to rule out sun exposure and gravity. They both play a part but the condition is worsened by sleeping on your side; especially women with larger breasts.
SilcSkin Decollette Pads were created to correct and prevent wrinkles on the Décolletage, especially in side sleepers. The Decollette Pad is 100% Medical grade Silicone that is made without any fillers, additives or adhesives. You can expect outstanding results overnight. While this is a great start to bringing back the youthful you and show off your Valentines Décolletage, there are a few more tips to get your chest area beautiful enough to showcase that gorgeous necklace you have been hinting at!
Exfoliate: While the Decollette Pad does a great job at reducing and relaxing fine lines, exfoliation should also done by scrubbing your décolletage with a loofah while in your morning shower to remove dead skin cells.
Vitamin C: I suggest not only using Vitamin C supplements but wearing it as well! A Vitamin C removes dead cells without the harshness of a peel or dermabrasion. A Vitamin C cream can restore a smooth surface and glow to an aging décolletage and is essential for the production of Collagen. You can also rub fresh lemon juice to your chest. It is a natural alpha Hydroxyl acid and effective at fighting age spots. There are many great inexpensive Vitamin C crèmes at your local pharmacy or health food store. One I like is Jason C Effects.
Moisturize: Apply a rich emollient moisturizer after your showers while you’re skin is still wet to seal in the moisture. There are many that are made specifically for the neck and décolletage. Though these tend to be pricy, I did find one that won’t break the bank. Dermactin-TS-Neck and Décolletage Smoothing Creame.
Sunscreen: The skin of the Décolletage is often very sun-damaged. You don’t want to get that beautiful taut chest area back and then start the damage all over again. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen to the décolleté area at least 20 minutes prior to going outside. I wear 50 SPF everyday.
Eat Nutritiously: I know! How can food help my Décolletage? Nutritious food provides the building blocks for healthy skin. Foods that are high in antioxidants help counteract a decrease in collagen, elasticity and firmness in aging skin. Tomatoes are an excellent wrinkle prevention food because they contain lycopene, a substance that also decreases the risk of developing cancer. Red peppers have loads of Vitamin A and Vitamin E, as well as bioflavonoids, which moisturize and heal the skin. Avoid trans fats and eat a serving of nuts, seeds or legumes daily.
Hydrate: To combat dry skin, drink at least 6-8 glasses of water daily.
Water flushes out toxins as well as hydrates.
