I believe most women grow up with the notion that their faces are the only tellers of age. Wrinkles, dark spots, sagging skin — we all believe it only occurs on our mugs. I, too, was raised on this unfounded principle. It just so happens that the neck and decollete areas are more prone to premature aging, due equally to the fact that they are regularly exposed to the elements and the region we most often neglect.
Luckily for me, I learned this super-important fact during my time as an editor for a national skincare magazine. As soon as I hit the third decade of my life, I began showing the same love I offered my face to the region below the chin. Cleanser, exfoliant, moisturizer, SPF — you name it, I put it on my neck and boobs. Also, I've invested in one product that is designated to just my chest region — Epicuren Colostrum Luminous Glow Cream (starting at $84).
I heard about the moisturizing wonders of Colostrum, which is a form of milk from mammary glands of mammals (fun fact), that contains exfoliating and hydrating enzymes. I'm very liberal with this stuff and spread it all over by chest whenever I get a chance. I've noticed that my skin doesn't get dry or tight throughout the the day, the way it once did. Who knew breast milk could benefit is us as adults?
