Your face starts at your bosoms
This statement does not mean you have to be raunchy to look glamorous. But it rather suggests you to treat your neck and décolletage in the same way as you take care of your face. Looking youthful and fresh demands a complete care, especially when it’s summer.
If you look around, there are numerous cosmetic products available in the market especially made for your décolletage. While it is one of the sexiest parts of your body boasting femininity at large; on the flipside it’s also one of the first areas that show signs of aging.
I have come up with a day to night guide with 10 steps to get sexiest décolletage to ensure you put your best bust forward! Read on to find out!
The day night guide with 10 easy steps
#Step 1 – Cleansing
Women after reaching 30 should go for amino acid-rich body wash, as it reduces inflammation, whilst removing toxins from your skin if any. Follow this procedure 2-3 times a week.
Suggested product: Darphin Aromatic Seaweed Bath and Shower Gel
It’s a luxurious yet gentle foam made up of seaweed extract that revitalizes skin while toning and firming.
#Step 2 – Exfoliating
Just as cleansing, exfoliating is also required, especially on the neck and chest area. Exfoliation helps in obtaining a sexy décolletage as it prepares the skin to properly absorb products most efficiently.
Suggested product: The Body Shop Pomegranate Body Polish
It contains exfoliating particles that gently scrub away dead skin cells, leaving the skin soft, smooth and lightly scented with a juicy berry fragrance. The exfoliating granules are very gentle that ensure soft and smooth skin yet squeaky clean. This 200 ml tube would last 3 months even if used for twice a week.
#Step 3 – Firming
Soon after shower, do not forget to apply a firming serum. Use about 10 pumps and massage in a circular motion from the center of your chest outward toward the shoulders, then, from the base of your neck upward toward your chin. Serums are made from a smaller structured molecule, so they are very powerful. They not only penetrate deeper to repair the damaged skin, but also boost the properties of your moisturizer.

This cream can be used daily all over the body, especially on target areas like the upper arms, neck and chest portion.
#Step 4 – Moisturizing
In order to moisturize the décolletage area, apply a neck firming cream that’s rich with SPF. Such creams are usually denser than the face creams. So make sure you warm the product before applying it with your fingertips. Once the cream is ready to be absorbed, apply it in upward strokes starting from your chest towards the chin and jawline and backend of your ears.
Suggested product: VLCC Shape Up Chin and Neck Firming Cream
This cream not only refines and chisels the lower cheeks, jaw, chin and jawline, but also tones and tightens the contour around the neck and jaw. It also works in reducing the double chin while firming the skin.
#Step 5 – Applying sunscreen
We usually forget to apply sunscreen on the neck. Since it is one of the most sensitive areas it easily gets damaged from the harmful UVA rays. Pick a more intensive sunscreen and apply it atleast half an hour before stepping out.
Suggested product: SkinCeuticals Sport UV Defense SPF 50
This clinical brand, well known for their paraben-free sunscreens, provides ultimate water-resistant protection to prevent premature aging and hyper-pigmentation from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
#Step 6 – Adding instant glow
Body oil helps in adding glow to the skin instantly.

This light-reflective blend of Tahitian monoi and coconut oils hydrates and enables the skin with a subtle shimmer.
#Step 7 – Bronze effect
A gold-based bronzer not only contours the chest area but also evens out the skintone. Pick an appropriate bronzer and sweep it across the chest and neck to get a get a healthy glow and camouflage any imperfections.
Tip: To achieve a more contoured look and the appearance of a more lifted and full bust, apply the bronzer in a “V” shape in between the chest, and blend upward.
Suggested product: Lakme Gold Dust Shimmer Bronzer
As per Lakme, it is a pure-pressed bronzing powder kissed with a golden shimmer blends beautifully to flatter any skin tone. Sweep it once all over your face or body and enjoy a glamorous glow that is straight out of a fairytale.
#Step 8 – Use exfoliating peel pad
At the end in order to remove any dirt use the exfoliating peel pad, which is now quickly becoming one of the skincare staples because of its instant results.
Take the saturated towelette and sweep across the face, neck, and décolletage. Then, work your way back upward, massaging in circular motions until the pad feels dry.
Suggested product: M-61 Power Glow Peel
It is a gentle glycolic and salicylic chemical peel that not only exfoliates deeply and retexturizes the skin, but brightens and helps fade sun damage too.
#Step 9 – Reapply firming serum
Once your feel the dryness in your skin, apply the firming serum again using the same massage technique you used in the morning, as well a reparative, anti-aging treatment that targets wrinkling and loss of elasticity. Nighttime is when your body gets the chance to restore itself from the day, so it’s great to use a high intensity treatment.
