From your chin to your cleavage, your neck and décolletage is often neglected, and as a result it can really show your age.

Here are some tips to work some magic on this delicate area.

1 Drink more water – it really does hydrate your skin (so it’s good for the whole body!)

2 Wear SPF15 daily, even in winter and increase to at least SPF30 in hot sun, not just on your face but down your neck and on all exposed skin.

3 Wear a scarf. In winter a warm woolly one will protect the thin neck skin from cold winds, while in the summer a soft silk scarf will prtoect you from the sun.

4 Use the right pillow. I admit I have trouble with this one, finding the right pillow/pillows for a comfortable night’s sleep. Normally one pillow is enough as any more than this raises your head too high. If you’re sleeping on your back this can push your chin into your neck creating creases in the skin. The same goes for sleeping on your side (which I do), which can press vertical lines into your cleavage!

5 Look up. If you work on a computer and you’re looking down at your screen you need to adjust your chair so you’re no longer looking down, or elevate screens and phones/stack books under your laptop to raise it up. Otherwise you’ll get a crease like a smile either side of your chin.

6 Try some simple firming exercises and a nourishing care routine (look out for my next post…).
