We normally think of crow’s feet and forehead lines when we think of age-revealing wrinkles, and seldom consider lines developing on our chests. Until the day comes that these deep creases fall smack in the middle of your once-gorgeous bosom, it’s easy to forget about this vulnerable spot.
But the skin here, just like around your eyes, is thin and easily damaged. If you put in the time now and take a few simple steps to protect your delicate décolletage, you’ll be able to confidently rock that low-cut top for years to come.
1. Wear Sunscreen!
Just like the skin on your face, your chest is equally susceptible to sun damage. Those deep tans you once thought made you look radiant and young have actually just damaged your skin (yes, that’s what UV rays do, even if you get tan), which can lead to wrinkles and age spots, the Skin Cancer Foundation explains. Prevent this sun-damage by loading up on sunscreen before going outside, even on cloudy days. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 to properly shield your skin from aging UV rays.
2. Try a Treatment
Consider a professional treatment for a more dramatic result. A great non-invasive option is Ultherapy, an in-office procedure that uses the power of ultrasound technology to improve décolletage lines and wrinkles, and lift skin on the neck, under the chin and eyebrow. The ultrasound energy stimulates the skin’s collagen production process. This is a great option, if you are looking to lift and tighten the skin with a non-surgical process, and are not keen on the idea of surgery and downtime. For more details on the procedure and to find a cosmetic medical practice that offers Ultherapy near you, visit the Ultherapy website.
3. Use Anti-Aging Moisturizer
Anti-aging moisturizers, serums and lotions are all great options to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Retinol creams have been shown to smooth wrinkles and lines. Additionally, skin is more likely to wrinkle as moisture becomes depleted with age, so any extra hydration is helpful in keeping skin smooth and even.
The last thing you’ll need to do is treat yourself to a new summer dress to show off that gorgeous décolletage.
