Often overlooked, the skin on the chest area is thin and delicate, requiring skin-plumping and nourishing ingredients to stay looking younger for longer.
If you’re wondering what causes chest wrinkles, or how to get rid of wrinkles on the chest, then we’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to help reduce the appearance of them with an anti-aging skincare routine from No7.
What Causes Chest Wrinkles?
Much like the face, chest lines and decolletage wrinkles are primarily caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin (two essential proteins responsible for skin’s plump appearance), due to the natural aging process.
However, chest wrinkles can also be caused by sun exposure, sleeping positions, genetics, and hormonal changes.
How to Prevent Wrinkles on the Chest
Lines on the chest are a natural part of aging, but there are lifestyle habits that can help prevent the deepening of chest wrinkles and delay the formation of new lines, including:
- Implement an anti-aging skincare routine to keep the décolleté feeling hydrated and protected
- Apply SPF daily, as over-exposure to the sun’s UV rays can result in premature aging, wrinkling, loss of elasticity, and dark spots on the chest
- Sleep on your back and avoid side sleeping as this causes folding and creasing in the skin
- Use targeted treatments for chest wrinkles, such as retinols and peels to help with skin cell turnover and promote collagen production
- Drink plenty of water to hydrate skin from the inside out
How to Get Rid of Wrinkles on the Chest or Reduce Their Appearance
The products you use on your face can also be used on the chest area. However, once formed completely getting rid of chest wrinkles can be tricky, but with an anti-aging skincare routine you can help to reduce the appearance of chest lines.
Step 1: Gently Exfoliate 1-3 Times a Week
By gently buffing the skin’s surface layer, exfoliation helps to reveal a clarified and smooth-looking decolletage.
Opt for a gentle cleanser when showering, like No7 Lift & Luminate Cleansing Exfoliator. It’s formulated with exfoliating particles and vitamins B5, C and E to gently exfoliate the skin without being drying.
How to apply: Using circular motions, gently massage a pea-sized amount of the exfoliator onto a damp chest and rinse with lukewarm water.
Step 2: Hydrate the Skin With a Serum
Formulated with No7’s unique anti-wrinkle and firming complexes, No7 Restore & Renew Serum works to treat the appearance of deep wrinkles while lifting the appearance of mature skin. It’s infused with age-defying ingredients like pro-retinol that penetrate the skin’s surface 10 layers deep for lines and wrinkles that appear visibly reduced in just 2 weeks.*
