Why do I need a neck and décolleté skin care product?

No matter how much attention you give to skin care for your face, the signs of aging are sure to start in your neck area if it’s not cared for. So if until now skin care has stopped at your jawline, there are more than a few pressing reasons to start including the neck and décolleté in your daily skin care routine.

But first, it’s helpful to know what factors negatively affect this area of sensitive skin—and the best skin care products and neck firming cream to help you maintain a décolleté that appears smooth, even-toned and beautifully sexy.

1. The skin of the décolleté is fragile

If the French word décolleté sounds delicate to your ears you’re absolutely right—the skin of the upper chest area, including your neck, cleavage, and shoulder area, is thin and fragile. Now think about how often this area of sensitive skin is exposed to heat and cold, environmental pollution, sun exposure, lack of hydration, poor diet, and gravity—it’s no wonder the décolleté is one of the first areas to show signs of damage.


The best skin care products give your décolleté a fighting chance. Clarins Super Restorative Décolleté and Neck Concentrate uses a powerful replenishing formula that visibly minimizes signs of premature skin aging. It is the best neck cream for mature women to help you maintain a healthy-looking décolleté and neck that’s as beautiful as you are.

2. The décolleté needs protection from the sun

The sensitive skin of the décolleté does not produce as much oil as the face. This makes it especially vulnerable to radiation from the sun. Sun exposure also accelerates the aging process.


Your most important line of defense against signs of sun damage to the décolleté is adding a sunscreen to your daily skin care routine. Clarins UV PLUS Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection Broad Spectrum SPF 50 is formulated with Clarins’ Anti-Pollution Complex and Broad Spectrum SPF 50. This sunscreen is suitable for a range of skin types, including sensitive skin. It’s silky, oil-free and helps decrease the risk of visible signs of premature aging due to sun damage.

3. Best anti-aging products for décolleté

There may be nothing you can do about gravity or the passage of time, but the best anti-aging products can go a long way to keeping your skin healthy-looking.

Start with cleansing

A face wash for sensitive skin will gently lift away impurities from the décolleté without drying out your skin. Look out for a facial cleanser for sensitive skin that can be used without water to help maintain your skin’s perfect moisture balance for optimum comfort and skin that appears smooth, supple, and radiant.


When bathing or showering, never use harsh soap on the skin. Opt instead for a body cleanser that is gentle enough for the sensitive skin of the décolleté and is rich in plant extracts for skin that feels soft, clean and beautifully conditioned.

Exfoliate regularly

Your face needs it and so does your décolleté, and for the same reasons—to gently slough off dead skin cells that can make skin look dull and rough to the touch, and to help your skin to absorb your serum and anti-aging cream.


Never scrub this delicate area, and use a body exfoliator that is gentle enough for sensitive skin. Include no more than once or twice a week in your skin care routine.

Visibly firm with a serum

Apply a serum after cleansing by gently massaging the product in a circular motion from the center of your chest toward the shoulders, then from the base of the neck toward the chin.

Keep the moisture in and the damage out

If you’ve been using your normal body lotion on the thin, fragile skin of the décolleté, you probably aren’t doing all you can to minimize visible signs of aging. Switch to a moisturizer for a range of skin types, including sensitive skin, formulated specially for the skin on the neck and décolleté. If your skin is dry, use the best moisturizer for dry skin that delivers extra-gentle care to the neck area.


Look out for skin care products that contain the fantastic power of Kangaroo Flower extract—a new plant discovery that leaves skin looking smooth and radiant.


For those of us in our fabulous forties, keeping skin and wrinkles on the neck and chest healthy is a matter of finding the best neck firming cream that visibly lifts and tones.
