An anti-aging skin-care routine does not have to be difficult or complicated. A few well-chosen products incorporated into your daily regimen can work wonders on the skin of your décolleté. They can help repair existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming. This article shares the 8 best anti-aging skin care products.
The sun’s damaging rays can have a profound effect on the skin of your face, neck, and chest. UVA and UVB rays can make your skin look older than it actually is and lead to creases and wrinkles. The best solution would be to stay out of the sun completely, but this just isn’t possible.
The next best solution is to wear a sunscreen at all times. Choose a sunscreen with an SPF rating of 30-45 to block out 97-98% of the sun’s harmful rays. Blocking out 100% of the rays is impossible, so there’s no need to pay for expensive, high-SPF sunscreens that claim to do so.
Apply sunscreen before you leave the house and then every two hours if you are spending time outside. Keep in mind that even sitting in a car or an office with windows exposes you to the sun.
2. Homemade wrinkle cream
Making your own wrinkle cream can be a fun and effective way to battle the signs of aging that develop on your skin. The ingredients in homemade wrinkle cream—like almond oil, beeswax, shea butter, and vitamin E oil—hydrate and nourish the skin of the décolleté and provide a powerful healing effect that can smooth out existing wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from forming.
Best of all, you can control the quantity and quality of what goes into your cream. One ingredient not to your liking? Try something else. Don’t like the smell? Add a different essential oil to change it up. And before you get concerned that making your own wrinkle cream is a complicated process, it often takes less than thirty minutes.
3. Coconut oil
Coconut oil is most known for its use as a cooking ingredient. But this healthy oil is also useful as an anti-aging remedy for your skin. Coconut oil is a powerful antioxidant. Consumed in your diet or applied directly to the skin, coconut oil helps to eliminate free radicals that can damage the skin and cause wrinkles. And because it’s an oil, coconut oil hydrates and moisturizes the skin to keep it tight. This helps prevent skin from sagging and forming lines that eventually lead to wrinkles.
Coconut oil is available in most supermarkets so it makes a simple and affordable addition to your wrinkle-prevention efforts. Try massaging a teaspoon of coconut oil into the dry skin of your décolleté at the end of the day. For added healing, leave it on overnight.
Most people don’t think of water as a way to stop the aging process and prevent wrinkles. But simple H2O is one of the best “products” out there for keeping your décolleté healthy and glowing at any age.
Water keeps your skin hydrated, healthy, and functioning properly. The water you drink helps your skin to rid itself of the pollutants that accumulate on both the inside and outside. Water helps move contaminants that are filtered by your skin away from that area so they don’t pile up and do more damage.
Allowing the skin of your décolleté to get dehydrated can result in premature aging and unsightly wrinkles. To prevent this from happening, be sure to drink at least 8 cups of water every day. A great way to get this process going is to drink 16 ounces (2 cups) of water first thing in the morning. Then, before you leave the house for the day, fill up a water bottle and make it a goal to drink two or three of those bottles throughout the day.
Like water, food isn’t a “product” we think will help us take care of our skin. But food—healthy food—keeps the body functioning properly. When the body is running at optimal levels, it is very efficient at removing the oxidants and other pollutants that can damage your body...including the skin.
Superfoods like kiwi, ginger, avocado, and almonds provide a powerful combination of healthy, anti-aging benefits. They do this by supplying your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to keep all parts of your body healthy.
Kiwi, for example, is high in vitamin C. This essential vitamin supports your liver and kidney and helps your body remove toxins that accumulate over time. Ginger works at the cellular level to reduce inflammation while almonds are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids that moisturize the skin from the inside out.
To get your daily dose of these superfoods, try including kiwi in your morning smoothie. Slice up an avocado for your mid-day salad and top it off with a ginger-based dressing. Hungry between meals? Grab a handful of almonds to munch on.
Injections like Botox™ or hyaluronic acid can be an useful addition to your anti-aging skin-care regimen. Botox™ works by causing the muscle underneath the skin to relax. This allows the skin to return to it more normal position where it is naturally smooth and wrinkle free.
Hyaluronic acid and other fillers do just as their name suggests: they fill in the empty space in the skin where collagen and elastin used to be. This provides a plumping effect that can smooth existing wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.
While injections provide almost immediate results, they are not without their drawbacks. For one thing, a single treatment can be expensive and multiple treatments are often needed. For another thing, there are risks involved. Fillers can cause allergic reactions ranging from temporary bumps on the skin to a bluish tinge underneath the skin to blindness and nerve paralysis.
Injections should always be administered by a doctor or dermatologist and it’s a good idea to consult a physician before going ahead with the procedure.
7. The Right Mattress
When you are asleep, your body works to remove toxins and dead blood cells from the skin. If you don’t sleep well, your body doesn’t have a time to do its job. This can cause the skin of your décolleté to look haggard and rough.
To ensure that you’re getting the quality sleep your skin needs, make sure you’re sleeping on the right mattress. If your mattress is too soft or too firm for your liking, your body won’t be able to relax enough to give you a good night’s sleep. Be sure to try the mattress to see how your body will react before you buy it. Lie still for a few minutes and see if you feel comfortable. Do you feel the need to turn? Are there pressure spots that make you want to move? All these can be signs that you need a different mattress.
8. SiO Beauty
Sometimes, your anti-aging skin-care routine needs a more powerful product to generate results. That’s where SiO Beauty comes in. SiO Beauty’s 24-Hour System is a powerful, three-step process that works while you sleep to repair existing wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from forming.
It starts with the Décolleté Cleansing Discs which lightly exfoliate and clean pores so real healing can take place. It continues with the SiO SkinPad which works in two ways. First, it provides support for the décolleté while you sleep to prevent new wrinkles from forming. Second, it creates a micro-climate between pad and skin that draws moisture to the surface where it can help smooth existing wrinkles. The process concludes with the Décolleté Serum which provides all-day protection and rejuvenation for the skin of the décolleté.
