It’s a fact: Most women neglect to include their chests in their daily skincare regimens, and skipping the extra moisture, anti-aging ingredients and most importantly, sunscreen, takes a toll. As a result, this delicate area often falls prey to fine lines, redness, dark spots and rough texture. But fret not… There are a variety of ways to rejuvenate skin and restore a more youthful appearance to this often-overlooked area. And remember to apply SPF to your chest before getting dressed in the morning, regardless of the weather, to prevent future damage once your skin is back on track!
La Roche-Posay Rosaliac AR Intense ($40)
Redness, blotchiness and flushing can be due to sun damage or a skin condition such as rosacea. Ideal for delicate skin on the décolletage thanks, this lightweight facial serum contains mineral-rich thermal spring water to soothe irritation-induced redness, a botanically-derived extract called ambophenol to reinforce capillary walls and light-reflecting pigments to even out skin tone instantly (without the need for makeup).
ZO Medical Brightamax Non-Hydroquinone Non-Facial Skin Brightening Crème ($80)
The chest is prime real estate for sun-induced discoloration, and this powerful skin-brightening cream is formulated specifically for use from the neck down. Combining retinol, vitamin C, antioxidants and other anti-pigment ingredients, it delivers visible results that rival those achieved with hydroquinone without the potential irritation or side effects.
SiO Beauty Anti-Wrinkle Regimen ($280)
If you’re a side-sleeper, odds are you wake up with vertical creases that can take hours to go away. The three-step SiO Beauty system combines exfoliating cleansing pads, a rejuvenating silicone adhesive pad and a skin-smoothing serum to create a comprehensive chest regimen that both improves the appearance of existing wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming—and you won’t believe your eyes after just one use.
Halo by Sciton
Ideal for signs of aging and sun damage such as lines, redness and uneven skin tone on the chest, Halo incorporates two wavelengths to address both the skin’s surface as well as deeper layers. According to board-certified dermatologist Jessie Cheung, MD, Director of the Jessie Cheung MD Dermatology & Laser Center in Willowbrook, Illinois, “This allows for minimal downtime but maximal results, and after about 3 days of redness and dryness, you will have fresh, smooth, glowing skin that just keeps looking better and better over the next few months.” Dr. Cheung also says, “Since the settings are so customizable, the Halo is a very versatile laser that can be used to improve the appearance of the chest, as well as melasma, discoloration, pores, wrinkles, laxity, and scars on the face.”
