If you’re in your 20s or early 30s STOP reading this! Get up & immediately run to your bathroom, grab your moisturizer and slather it on your chest. You still have time to save your skin.
If you’re over 30 or in your 40s; sigh, smile & look down.. And ask yourself the same question on my mind, “WHY didn’t I moisturize my chest consistently while I was moisturizing my face all these years?” Ughhhh.
Now that I’m in my 40s I see all of the sun damage that I’ve earned without sunscreen, the tiny wrinkles from side sleeping and dehydration lines from lack of moisturizer.
We always take the time & care to keep our faces looking young and beautiful – maybe we even remember our necks. But why do we always forget our décolleté?
My mom didn’t really stress it was a big deal or nag me to go any further than my neck.. Well, I’m here to remind you always do your décolleté! Exfoliate, hydrate & repeat. Sleep on your back whenever possible (or invest in these chest protecting pads : http://www.silcskin.com/) and whatever you do, NEVER leave the house without applying sunscreen!
If I could go back and give my 18-year-old self one beauty tip it would be this: “Moisturize your body daily & NEVER leave out your chest.” While you exfoliating your face, exfoliate your chest. When you apply moisturizer to your face, continue down your neck and end on your chest. When was last time you exfoliated your chest more than twice, more than once a week?
The good news is, we can’t reverse the clock but we can at least slow it down. Start hydrating your décolleté right now!
So what would I tell my 40-year-old self if I was 80: “Take good care of your teeth and go floss immediately.”
