7 Ways to Care for Your Décolletage
1. Sun protection
Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to your décolletage (and face!) daily. Sunscreen is essential to protect the delicate skin on your décolletage from harmful UV rays. Overexposure to the sun can lead to premature aging and increase the risk of skin cancer. Apply sunscreen generously and reapply every two hours when outdoors.
Use a hydrating moisturizer enriched with ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin, or ceramides. Keeping the skin on your décolletage well-hydrated helps maintain its elasticity and prevents dryness and flakiness. A quality moisturizer helps lock in moisture, making your skin look supple and youthful.
Gently exfoliate your décolletage once or twice a week to remove dead skin cells. Exfoliation promotes cell turnover and can enhance the overall texture and tone of your skin. Consider using a mild chemical exfoliant or a gentle physical exfoliator to avoid irritation.
Perform a gentle massage using upward motions to stimulate blood flow and collagen production (while moisturizing is a great time for this to reduce any friction and pulling of the skin). Massaging your décolletage increases circulation, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and promote a healthy glow. Use your fingertips in circular motions for a few minutes daily or during your skincare routine.
5. Use nourishing ingredients
Look for skincare products containing antioxidants like vitamin C, E, and niacinamide. Antioxidants help protect your skin from free radical damage and can improve the overall health of your décolletage. Vitamin C, for instance, brightens the skin and reduces the appearance of age spots.
6. Wear clothing that protects your décolletage
When sunscreen is not an option, choose clothing with higher necklines or UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) fabric. Covering your décolletage with clothing that provides sun protection can significantly reduce UV exposure. Wearing tops with built-in UPF or using scarves and shawls can shield your skin from the sun's harmful rays.
7. Exercise and proper posture
Engage in exercises that improve posture and chest muscles. Regular exercises like yoga or strength training can help maintain good posture, preventing sagging of the décolletage area over time. Additionally, proper posture encourages blood circulation and reduces strain on your neck and chest.
8. Wear an anti-wrinkle cleavage sleep bra
Wearing a cleavage crease night bra like our signature Soobi Sleep Top prevents your breasts from smashing together throughout the night. The top has a built-in breast pillow that protects your delicate décolletage skin by keeping your breasts separated so the skin cannot crease or fold, thus preventing wrinkles from forming.
