When it comes to skincare, many people focus solely on their face, neglecting other areas like the neck and décolleté. However, these areas are just as important and can show signs of ageing and damage if not correctly cared for. Discover why your neck and décolleté need care and nourishment, and learn some tips for giving them the attention they deserve with this article.
Why Your Décolletage Needs its Own Self-Care Focus
The skin on your neck and décolleté requires special care and attention due to its thinness and vulnerability to damage and signs of ageing. Unlike the skin on your face, this region has fewer oil glands, making it prone to dryness and a loss of elasticity.
Furthermore, the neck and décolleté are regularly exposed to environmental stressors, particularly the sun, which can exacerbate these issues.
Unfortunately, the neck and décolleté are often overlooked in skincare routines. However, they are just as important as the face. If you want to keep this area looking youthful and healthy, don't forget to give your neck and chest the same level of care as your face.
What Causes Neck Lines?
Neck lines, also known as neck wrinkles, are a common sign of ageing that various factors can influence. While genetics play a role in determining the extent of neck wrinkling, certain habits and environmental factors can exacerbate their appearance.
Smoking and prolonged exposure to UV rays are known to contribute to the development of wrinkles. Additionally, repetitive motions such as squinting or constantly looking down can contribute to neck lines and wrinkles forming.
However, you can take steps to reduce the visibility of neck lines. Regular moisturising, avoiding smoking, and using sunscreen can help slow down the skin's ageing process. Therefore, it is essential to be mindful of these habits and make lifestyle adjustments to minimise their impact.
How to Care for Your Neck and Décolleté
Taking care of your décolletage doesn't have to involve buying more products. At Indagare, we believe in the power of simplicity and using what you already have to nurture this area. Instead of launching a new product (you would know by now that we are about helping you create an effective, luxurious routine that works - with FEWER products than the big brands tell you you need!) for this area, we want to remind you of the importance of self-care and provide tips on caring for your décolletage using the products and resources you already possess. So here are our tips!
Apply Sunscreen to These Areas Daily.
Sun damage is one of the most significant contributors to premature ageing on the neck and décolleté. These areas are often exposed to the sun, yet many people remember to sunscreen their face by forget to apply sunscreen on their chest and décolleté. Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 on your neck and décolleté daily, even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hours if you're spending time outdoors.
Incorporate Nurturing Botanical Oils for Your Neck and Décolletage.
The neck and décolleté area of the skin is often overlooked, but it is just as delicate as your eyelids. To protect and nourish this area, use Signature Night Recovery Oil. This specially formulated oil is designed to firm, tone, and repair the skin on your face, neck, and décolleté. It is filled with anti-aging and antioxidant oils scientifically proven to nourish and repair the skin.
Additionally, the oil is fast-absorbing and stimulates the production of elastin and collagen, helping to improve your skin's overall appearance and health. It's as simple as remembering to extend your facial skincare routine down to your neck and décolleté for a comprehensive and effective regimen - for the best results, do this morning and night (and don't forget sunblock!).
For a glowing, flawless complexion, it's essential to exfoliate not only your face but also your neck and décolletage. By eliminating dead skin cells and encouraging cell renewal in these areas, you can achieve the desired results, and your nourishing products will absorb more readily, too. It's critical to choose a gentle exfoliating product since the neck and décolletage are sensitive.
Our Atonement Superfood Face Masque is perfect, as it uses mild fruit extracts from Pineapple and White Willow Bark to exfoliate without irritating. Simply apply a thin layer to the neck during your weekly facial mask routine and leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing off with a damp cloth (we promised you that it could be as simple as tweaking your current routine!). If you need a deeper exfoliation, you can gently massage the mask off, but we recommend being extra gentle in this sensitive region. With regular weekly use, this mask will reveal a glowing complexion from your face to your chest.
