WATCH: A skincare routine for your face, neck and décolletage

You’ve heard it before, but we’ll say it again: when it comes to skincare, your face actually stops at your chest! That means you should be zeroing in on your neck and décolletage just as diligently as you do your forehead, cheeks and chin. Why? This delicate region is exposed to the very same external aggressors (think free radicals and UV rays) which can contribute to fine lines and pigmentation – aka premature signs of ageing.

Although it’s never too late to start a new routine, prevention is key – and the last thing you want is to suddenly realise you’ve neglected this area. And, beyond all the physical benefits of dry brushing, exfoliating and lathering yourself in luxurious creams, taking a moment to indulge is as good for your soul as it is for your skin. Consider this self-care tutorial your reminder to show some love to the skin below your chin. Press play!


Take GOOP’s G.TOX Ultimate Dry Brush and, using light pressure, gently brush upwards in the direction of your heart to exfoliate and stimulate skin. This tool also helps target puffiness – and leaves you feeling refreshed and invigorated. Once you start dry brushing, you’ll never go back!


Use the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Exfoliating Body Treatment across arms (and your whole body) to help smooth and soften skin. Looking glowy already!


Slowly massage Costa Brazil Óleo Para O Corpo | Kaya Jungle Firming Body Oil into skin to help firm and hydrate. This active-packed oil sinks in quickly and has an instant tightening effect.


For added nourishment and lift, apply Dr. Barbara Sturm Super Anti-Aging Face Cream in an upwards direction across your chest, neck and face. You can never be too heavy handed on the moisture – particularly in winter!


Take the Knesko Rose Quartz Gemstone Roller and gently roll both ends down the neck, jawline and cheeks to refresh the skin and relax the muscles. Pop it in the fridge prior to use to up the cool factor!
