For women, the décolleté is the area of your upper torso including your neck, shoulders, upper chest and back that is often exposed by low necklines. Aging, diet, the sun and your lifestyle all affect the appearance of this sensitive area. If you want a youthful look, you need to focus on the whole package — especially in the summer when more skin is on display. We have a few tips to share to help you keep this sexy section of your skin firm and smooth.
Now that summer is over, you might be looking forward to skipping the sunscreen and saving time in your skincare routine. After all, you don’t need sunscreen when the forecast calls for clouds, rain, and snow, right?

Do you take daily vitamins and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, but continue to battle signs of aging? While it’s true that fruits and vegetables contain the nutrients your skin needs to help slow down the aging process, sometimes it’s just not enough. However, applying these nutrients topically to your skin can complement your healthy diet, and help you achieve the youthful look you’ve been working toward.
Did you know that loss of moisture in your skin can accelerate the aging process, and encourage the development of fine lines and wrinkles? Loss of moisture in your skin can be caused by factors such as excess sun exposure, lack of water, and poor nutrition. These factors affect your body’s natural production of an element called hyaluronic acid, which retains moisture and contributes to younger-looking skin.

Between the often scorching sun, the chlorine from the pool, and the air conditioning taking all the moisture out of the air, it’s easy for our skin to become dehydrated.
