While we talk a lot about taking care of your face, being the first area to show signs of aging, we should never forget about the other zones of our skin that can suffer damage. And today, we want to offer the special attention it deserves, to the décolletage, the second area that shows signs of aging, especially because of factors like sun exposure, low oil product, the weight of the breast, and even your sleeping position.
Thin-skinned, the chest and neck produce less oil and collagen, and, whether you are already showing signs of mature skin or you are just interested in preventing them, continue reading and find out our top 7 simple treatments for your chest wrinkles.
Apply Broad-Spectrum Sunscreen Daily
We know we keep repeating this, but sunscreen is mandatory if you want to keep having beautiful, young-looking skin. And protecting your décolletage as well as all the other exposed areas of your body is mandatory.
Whether we are talking about hot sunny days or the winter, cold ones, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher daily. You can also give sunblock containing zinc and titanium a try since the active ingredients work immediately after application.
Always Cleanse Gently
You already know how to care for your face, and this knowledge will help you when it comes to your chest pampering, too. Yes, the skin on your décolletage is also delicate and thin, which means you need to use a gentle cleanser and avoid scrubbing the area since this can irritate the skin and accelerate aging.
So, to clean your skin while pampering it, apply the cleanser using your fingertips and always rinse with lukewarm water.
While you should avoid scrubbing your chest, regular exfoliation is a must if you want to have gorgeous, glowing skin for a long time. So, while we advise you to cleanse the skin on your chest twice a day, we also recommend exfoliation a few times a week.
Whether you choose an exfoliating product or a mask, this care routine step will help you lose the dead skin cells on your neck and chest and make room for new, healthy ones.
Don’t Forget to Moisturize!
If you believe moisturizing is only for your face, we’re here to tell you it’s not! Your whole body needs moisturizing, but the more sensitive areas, like your décolletage, need extra attention. So, enhance hydration using a serum or moisturizer that is rich in hyaluronic acid, and your skin will thank you!
There have been studies showing that hyaluronic acid has the ability to fight wrinkles and keep your skin looking firm and youthful by improving its skin hydration, firmness, and elasticity.
Add Topical Retinoids & Antioxidants to Your Routine
Hyaluronic acid is a great choice! However, to upgrade your skincare routine, Nikhil Dhingra MD also recommends using topical retinoids. They can increase collagen production and help reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
If you are already using retinoids on your face, you can just extend the treatment to your neck and chest. Also, antioxidants like vitamin C are a must since they can help protect your skin and even reverse the damage from free radicals.
Sleep On Your Back
Sleep is gold for your skin, but sleep wrinkles are real! And, unfortunately, people who sleep on the side and stomach-sleepers will suffer most. When sleeping on your side, for instance, the chest presses up against itself, resulting in sagging and creases. So, today is the best moment to change your habits and start sleeping on your back.
Also, push-up bras and even sports bras can have negative effects over time since they both squeeze your breast together. So, think twice next time you’re getting dressed for your yoga class!
Use Chest Smoothing Pads
Changing your sleeping habits is a great idea to keep your chest smooth and healthy. However, you can do more than that!
Whether you want to use them during your beauty sleep or while you take care of the house chores, the Blumbody Chest Smoothing Pads will change your life. The silicone wrinkle patches allow the delicate skin of your décolleté to repair and rejuvenate while smoothing and eliminating tough-to-treat chest wrinkles.
