How décolletage (neck and chest) wrinkles are formed 

Why is the skin of the décolletage (neck and chest) thin and fragile? Because unlike other parts of the body, it does not have any protective and moisturising fatty tissue. As a result, it wrinkles more quickly. In addition, we often forget about the décolletage (neck and chest) in our daily moisturising routine and we don't protect it enough from its main enemy, the sun!
It is the main cause of the vertical and oblique wrinkles that appear between the breasts and spread out like a fan. Your sleeping position can also make neckline wrinkles more visible. Sleeping on your side causes them to become deeper.

Décolletage (neck and chest) wrinkles: moisturise and protect

How to act on the main ageing accelerator of the décolletage (neck and chest)? By adopting a sun protection habit as soon as it is not covered by clothing, even for a springtime lunch on the terrace. In case of prolonged exposure, opt for a high-protection formula and remember to reapply every two hours.
On a daily basis, moisturising is the key to keeping your décolletage (neck and chest) beautiful. No need to invest in a specific product: simply spread your anti-wrinkle products down to the neck, then the décolletage (neck and chest).

Extending the application of your anti-wrinkle care products down the décolletage (neck and chest) is a start. But it’s better to choose the right ones!

To avoid accentuating décolletage (neck and chest) wrinkles, it is best to sleep on your back. Moreover, it’s during the night that the skin renews itself the best. So after your evening make-up removal, apply a smoothing and plumping serum to your face and apply it all the way down to your décolletage (neck and chest). Next, apply a smoothing balm with a light, comforting texture that melts naturally into the skin. The combination of these products ensures that you wake up to rested skin, smoother looking features and wrinkles that appear reduced. 


Here are some self-massage techniques to reduce the appearance of décolletage (neck and chest) wrinkles

Pinching wrinkles on the décolletage (neck and chest)

You can also opt for the Jacquet pinch technique: this involves pinching the wrinkles of the décolletage (neck and chest) with the thumb and forefinger, and moving up along each of them. This time it should be done on clean, dry skin.
