A delicate question: how to maintain youth and elasticity of the skin in the neck
The décolleté is a rather vulnerable area – it is faster exposed to age-related changes than the face and the rest of the body. Here, a thinner skin and not so pronounced subcutaneous tissue. It is this area that is most often exposed to direct sunlight when we sunbathe or simply are in the sun, as a result of which pigmentation and rosacea appear more often. Therefore, it is necessary to take care of the skin in the decollete area as carefully and carefully as the face, and in the summer it must be protected with SPF creams.

To care for the decollete area, it is better to use special cosmetics, although face creams are also suitable. The neckline needs regular nourishment and hydration. As part of the care products need to look for natural oils (shea butter), vitamin E, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and peptides.
Also, do not forget that cleansing the skin is the best way to rejuvenate it. After removing the layer of dead cells from the skin surface, we improve cellular respiration, plus we stimulate local blood circulation, which in turn allows cells to be constantly updated. To cleanse the skin in this area, soft peels and gommas are suitable, which should be done at least 1-2 times a week. At home, you can use a coffee scrub based on coffee grounds.
Step 2: masks and massage
Do not neglect the additional care for the skin in the neck: nourishing and moisturizing masks, which, by the way, can be prepared even at home. The neckline likes fruit care, masks can be made from strawberries, bananas, peaches or apricots. Strawberries can be used in a “pure” form, having previously ground them, and you can add cream, sour cream or milk to the rest of the fruits, which will allow you not only to care for your skin, but also to bleach it a little. Fruit mask should be applied for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
To homemade skin care in the neckline can also be attributed to massage and douche. Both of these methods stimulate blood circulation, which promotes skin regeneration and an increase in collagen and elastin production. If you wish, a contrast shower can be replaced with ice cubes based on decoctions of herbs (chamomile, mint, etc.), which can wipe the skin in the decollete area twice a day before applying the cream. As for the massage, it is the power to perform any woman on their own. The main thing is to use special massage oils for this purpose. Or take the usual olive oil – it perfectly cares for the skin and is absolutely safe from the point of view of allergens. The massage of the décolleté area is done with the help of strokes, circular and spiral movements, which should be careful, because the skin in this area is quite thin. Self-massage can be done 1-2 times a week for 10 minutes maximum.
Step 3: help from professionals
Professional care for the neckline area includes several areas: these are superficial peels, and injection techniques (biorevitalization, mesotherapy), and laser treatment that allows you to solve several problems at once – rejuvenation, hyperpigmentation, couperosis, wrinkle relief. If the wilting of this zone is pronounced, deep wrinkles are observed, patients are shown reinforcement by injecting preparations based on polylactic acid (Sculptra) or calcium hydroxyapatite (Radiesse) or filament lifting. In more complex cases, age problems are solved with the help of a surgical skin tightening.
