Crepey or dry skin on the chest?
Try anti-ageing Collagen Glow Body Lotion
Décolleté, chest, cleavage area – whatever you call it, the issues are usually the same.
As this is an area that gets a lot of sun over the years, your décolleté can let you down in terms of accelerated skin ageing.
We generally don’t look after this area with skincare the way we would the face and neck and you can be left with dry, creased and uneven coloured or textured skin on your upper chest that can really give the game away when it comes to wearing anything even remotely low cut – never mind strapless!
Other skin issues that can affect the chest area are red veins, skin tags and pigment spots.
Are you one of the many women who avoid plunging necklines like the plague when shopping for a party or event dress – and doesn’t that really narrow your choices?! Well you don’t have to restrict yourself any more. If you are bothered by any of the above then read on to find your simple, fast solution from Skin Essentials by Mariga.
Should you use your skincare products on your chest too?
Definitely! I have always recommended bringing your facial skincare down as far as the chest but now we are delighted to have a special product for anti-ageing the décolleté, hands and all over the body!
Our Collagen Glow Hand & Body Lotion has collagen peptides, essential vitamins, minerals and a host of natural botanical extracts to nourish, replenish and repair delicate, ageing skin. Find it here.
What else do I recommend?
SPF30 during the day any time the skin of the chest is exposed – even if it’s winter or you are mostly inside! If your skin is covered then use a nice quality unscented body oil or lotion.
Age Slowly Serum – use one pump of serum over the upper chest area at least three times a week at night, daily for deeper revision.
Age spots, sun spots – Simply removed with cryotherapy in a very quick treatment. Give yourself 3 weeks before a big event to heal completely! From €75
Red veins, skin tags, milia – We use diathermy electrodessication to remove these nuisance lesions (in the case of large skin tags we recommend cryotherapy instead, see above). From €80
Uneven texture, rough or bumpy skin – We have several treatments for this issue depending on severity. From a firming enzyme add on during your regular facial (€25 as an add on) or a customised acid peel (from €70) to TriFractional skin resurfacing using combined microneedling and radio frequency energy (€300) we have solutions for every need and budget. Call us to arrange your free consultation to determine which is best for you.
Crepey, lined and sun damaged skin – From a course of six of our brand NEW LipofirmMed radiofrequency décolleté treatments (€500 in a package price) which will smooth out lines for long-term results to a Pyramid Decollete Treatment (€395) for deeper lines and sun damage-related issues, we can design the treatment or course of treatments just for you.
