Décolletage, which translates to “expose the neck,” is defined as a plunging neckline on a woman’s dress. While necklines change along with fashion trends, the exposure of the décolletage has remained a true symbol of femininity throughout the ages. However, we happen to find more ways to accentuate the area than taking the preventative steps to protect and preserve it!
The delicate skin of the décolletage is some of the thinnest on the body and is often neglected when it comes to skincare. The neck and upper chest bears the brunt of exposure to UV damage and leaving this area unprotected can lead to the development of “crepe” like skin – vertical wrinkles, brown spots, discoloration and possibly even early skin cancers. Damaged and prematurely aged skin on the décolletage can also add unwanted years to your overall look.
