Extending your skincare simply comes down to common sense. Your décolletage and chest area is likely just as exposed to the sun as your face is for long periods of time, which speeds up the signs of aging. According to Sunsafe RX, sun exposure is more responsible for reduced skin elasticity, pigmentation, and wrinkles than any other environmental or genetic factor. Therefore, any area that is routinely exposed needs a little TLC to delay those signs.
On the flip side, this area may often be on show in the summer, or when you’re wearing particular outfits, so you’ll naturally want the skin to look as good as possible. Wrinkles on the breasts, in particular, can also form as a result of your sleeping position, and using your skincare products can help to prevent and deal with those, too.
“Take the products you use on your face down to your chest, cleavage and underside of the breasts to address texture changes and loss of elasticity,” celebrity aesthetician Joanna Vargas told Net-a-Porter.
