Reader Question: How Do I Keep My DÉCOLLETAGE looking young?


Hi Jamie,

Lately I’ve been noticing that I have a lot of sun damage on my chest and I’m freaking out. Is there any way to protect my neck and chest from future damage? I don’t want an old lady chest!



Hi R,

The décolletage (aka your chest area) is often forgotten, so props to you for thinking ahead!  That said, it should be treated the same way you treat your face…exfoliate, treat, use SPF.

The skin on the chest and neck is thin, so sun damage can be VERY obvious when it’s there.  I actually use a retinol serum on my chest every night, at the same time I apply it to my face.  Here’s a good routine:

1- Exfoliate: You can scrub away dead skin once or twice a week and you’ll be good to go

2- Treat: Like I said, you want to use a retinol product (aka an anti-aging miracle), which will help get rid of any existing damage. A lot of brands also make products specifically designed for the neck and chest area (see below for my favorites) that also contain retinol or other great anti-aging ingredients

4- Protect: If you’re wearing an outfit that shows any skin, make sure you always apply plenty of SPF!
