Like the face, the neckline is exposed to the sun, dryness and pollution but is even more fragile because it does not have any sebaceous glands to create a naturally protective film. The skin of the neckline is drier and so is affected more quickly by the signs of ageing.
Age spots and wrinkled skin due to UV rays (photoaging of the bust), and vertical wrinkles that run from the bottom of the chest to the collar bones are particularly unsightly. These wrinkles, caused by normal skin ageing, can be exacerbated by sun exposure and sleeping position (side or stomach). Rosacea and erythrosis-related redness can also appear on the neckline.
