Worry about every single small line that forms on your face? Yet, you disregard your entire neck and chest area? This is not a skincare regimen that we would advise. The same skin damage that can occur on your face - including wrinkles, skin discoloration, and crepey skin - can also find its way on your neck and chest area. Thus, it's important to treat all of your skin evenly in order to ensure uniform and beautiful skin that matches. Otherwise, your neck and chest area can look years older than what your face portrays - and that’s not something you want to be in line for.
Here are 4 easy to follow tips helping keep the skin on your neck and chest area looking young and healthy for years to come.
#1 Be generous to all areas of your skin
Employ the same skincare routine that you use for your face to your neck and chest area as well. The routine should include: cleansing, toning, exfoliating and moisturizing. This will ensure even treatment and protection for areas that are most prone to damage.
Good news? You don’t need to purchase separate products for your neck and chest area. You can use the same facial products that you already have to treat acne, dry skin and dark spots.
To see improvement - keeping a healthy and young look - you must follow a consistent routine. Just like your face, your neck and chest area need the same constant attention. Thus, when you treat your face in the morning and at night, remember to also treat your neck and chest area.
#3 Treat dark spots
When you look at yourself and see dark spots on your chest area, treat them with a good skin-lightening product. It’s the same products that you would use on your face in order to get rid of those pesky dark spots. Your products are more versatile than you know!
#4 Be smart under the sun
Often times, the neck and chest area are neglected and left exposed to the sun without any application of sunscreen. These areas then become highly vulnerable to sun damage. Always protect your neck and exposed chest area by properly applying sunscreen. And if the sun is very intense, wear a large hat and try to avoid too much sun exposure.
Over to you!
There you have it! These simple tips will help in the long run - as your entire appearance will be consistent with a healthy and youthful look. You don’t want a young and healthy face with a wrinkled and dry neck and chest area. That's no match!
