Decollete cream: For a youthful neck area

How to take care of your neck and chest skin
Looking fresh and youthful is about more than just the face. Treat your neck and chest with great care for a smooth and wrinkle-free decollete.

What does decollete mean?

Discover where you’d find the decollete on a woman’s body and why it requires special care.

Decollete: A basic definition

The decollete – or decolletage, as it’s often known – is the area of a woman’s chest from her neck to her bosom. The skin in this area is very fragile and can show signs of aging if not cared for properly.

Why is decollete care important?

Not only is the skin on the decolletage thinner and more delicate than the rest of the skin, it’s also exposed to the sun more, so neglecting this area can result in premature aging and a sagging neck.

Although many people remember to apply an SPF to their face, they forget that the neck and chest area are often just as exposed as the face and subject to the same damage from UVA and UVB rays. Especially in summer, make sure to use a NIVEA sunscreen to protect your skin from UV rays. In addition, very few people cleanse this area properly, despite the fact that dirt and grime can easily build up throughout the day.

To counteract the effects of aging on the decolletage, make sure to use a hydrating cream like NIVEA Firming Body Lotion Q10 Plus on a regular basis and look forward to a firmer, moisturised neck area.

How to take the best care of your decollete

Tips and advice for protecting the decolletage area to prevent sagging skin.

The importance of moisturising

Due to the fact that the skin on the decollete is so thin and has few sebaceous glands and subcutaneous fat tissue, it tends to be prone to dryness. Using an effective moisturiser is essential for neck tightening and a smooth chest.

Try to choose a neck cream that firms the skin and enhances its elasticity as it moisturises. NIVEA Firming Body Milk Q10 Plus helps to support skin cell renewal. It has an intensively nourishing formula, which works with the skin to leave it feeling firmer and tighter.

Sunscreen is a must all year round

Whenever your neck and chest is exposed, protection against UVA and UVB rays is crucial for preventing sunburn and premature skin-aging. Try NIVEA Sun Protect & Refresh Cooling Sun Mist for a refreshing sensation, a non-greasy formula and immediate UV protection. 

Quick skin care tips for the decollete

  • Cleanse your neck and chest on a daily basis to leave it fresh and clean.
  • Don’t forget to exfoliate once a week to remove dead skin cells and promote circulation.
  • Apply a hydrating mask to the area every now and again to treat the skin.
  • Massaging the area stimulates blood flow for a radiant look.
  • Sweep on some shimmering bronzer to make the most of your beautiful decollete.
