Neck and Décolleté Skincare Routine
by Emily Linehan on December 20, 2022
One of my most important tips to clients is to save their necks… literally!
Many women make the mistake of using the "leftover" product they’ve applied to their faces on their necks and décolleté. But since the neck and décolleté often show the first signs of aging, don’t they deserve as much attention as your face?
#EmmeTip: Décolleté is a French word that essentially refers to a woman’s dress or top that has a low neckline. So, think of this area as the sections of your chest and neck that would be exposed when wearing a low-cut top!
To avoid premature aging or issues such as “tech neck”, be sure to treat your neck and décolleté areas as an extension of your face. To do this, I have a suggested routine for both day and night, which I will share below. The most important thing is to make sure not to cross-contaminate the facial products with the products you use on the neck and décolleté as it can create some dryness or irritation on the delicate neck area. So, here are my recommendations for a firmer + more youthful-looking neck & décolleté:
After cleansing and toning, apply 1 pump of Brilliant-C Serum to the neck and 1 pump to the décolleté. This gentle Vitamin C serum not only prevents premature aging due to sun exposure but also nourishes, brightens, and hydrates the skin, strengthens the capillary walls, and stimulates new collagen growth.
Next, apply 1 pump of Glow Factor Serum to the neck and décolleté. This potent elixir mimics the transformative abilities of natural growth factors to enhance skin resilience and radiance. Plus, Glow Factor Serum’s signature blend supercharges the brightening effects of Brilliant-C Serum for a radiant and even-toned complexion.
Next, apply 2 pumps of Skin Quencher Gel and 2 pumps of your moisturizer then follow with 2 pumps of SPF to the neck and décolleté.
After cleansing and toning, apply 1 pump of Firming Peptide Serum to the neck and 1 pump to the décolleté. This hydrating and anti-aging serum optimizes the skin’s cellular function and renewal cycle resulting in noticeably supple, firmer, and more radiant skin.
Then apply 1 pump of Glow Factor Serum to the neck and décolleté. When combined with the Firming Peptide Serum, these serums offer a comprehensive peptide treatment while also deeply hydrating the skin through complementary ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and beta-glucan
As the last step, apply 2 pumps of your moisturizer to the neck and décolleté.
