If you’re like many women, you probably forget to think about the skin on your neck and décolletage. Well, you do want that skin to be beautiful too don’t you? It’s not as easy as simply slathering on your usual face cream because that area contains very few sebaceous glands and lacks muscle, so different lotions and potions are needed. Lately, I’ve been testing products specifically designed for that delicate skin to keep it looking its youthful best. Now my bathroom looks like a high school chemistry lab and my cats have been going nuts over the boxes. Lucky me.
At the end of the day, these four amazing products get “neck and dec” skin gorgeous. Consider all your low cut or strapless outfit needs taken care of!
Restorsea Repairing Neck and Decolletage Treatment with Vibransea Complex is a recent addition to the Restorsea skin care line, and is specially formulated for the delicate skin of the neck and décolletage area. This lightweight serum contains the company’s proprietary Vibransea Complex, which is made up of Aquabeautine XL, a patented enzyme released by salmon as they hatch, vitamin C to improve the appearance of age spots, and brown algae to moisturize the skin and increase elasticity. The serum also contains sweet olive, a shrub native to the Far East that is high in antioxidants to protect the delicate skin from free radicals. This serum is light, absorbs quickly into the skin, and has really brightened my neck and décolletage. FYI, Gwyneth Paltrow is a Restorsea fan and raves about it. And how beautiful is her skin?
I absolutely love the Skyn Iceland Nordic Peel Pads with Alpha-Beta Complex. They smell amazing, which is important because I am very sensitive to scents and perfumes in products. These pads definitely made my dull, wintry skin look noticeably brighter. They contain lactic acid and fruit enzymes to clear away dead skin cells and uncover glowing new skin. The pads also contain witch hazel, to reduce pore size appearance and refresh skin, white willow bark to reduce inflammation and prevent breakouts, jojoba seed extract to hydrate skin and maintain elasticity and smoothness, and Skyn Iceland’s proprietary Icelandic Complex, a concoction of Icelandic glacial water and antioxidant-rich arctic cloudberry and cranberry seed oils.
Paula’s Choice Resist Anti-Aging Body Double: This dynamic duo packs a one-two punch. The Resist Skin Revealing Body Lotion with 10% alpha-hydroxy acid not only leaves skin feeling soft like a traditional body lotion, but it also exfoliates skin with 10% glycolic acid. The Resist Retinol Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment with Antioxidants smoothes and firms the skin and protects it from free radicals. Use the body lotion first after you get out of the shower and then follow with the Skin-Smoothing Body Treatment. I appreciated that the products are fragrance free, and noticed that the skin on my shoulders, where I have sun damage (boo!) looks much better. The products are also sold separately….but why not get the full treatment?
Elizabeth Arden Prevage Anti-Aging Neck and Décolletage Firm and Repair Cream isn’t your grandma’s Elizabeth Arden skin cream. It has antioxidants, retinyl, and amino acids to support the skin’s collagen and elastin, tightening polymers, optical pigments and citroflavonoids to boost radiance, and hyaluronic acid, and shea and palm butters to moisturize delicate neck and décolletage skin. And BTW, this stuff smells amazing!
