How to Care for the Skin on Your Chest

Far too often, people don’t give enough attention to the chest area in their anti-aging efforts, whereas the chest should be ranked very closely behind the face and the neck. The reason for this is that the chest, especially its upper area is often exposed to the sun and this can cause brown sports, redness and even skin cancer, if not addressed properly.

To prevent this, here are a few tips on how to take care of the skin on your chest:

  • Wear sunscreen daily

Applying sunscreen should be something that you do throughout the year and not just in the summer or winter. However, even those that do, are often doing it wrong.

It is not enough to simply apply the sunscreen on your face and a little on the neck and the hands. The golden rule when using sunscreen is to apply it wherever the skin may get in contact with the sun. In the summer, this often includes the chest, so don’t forget this area.

  • Exfoliate more often than the face and the neck

Since the skin on your chest is less sensitive than on the face or the neck, you should make an effort to exfoliate it more often. A good exfoliating scrub with dissolving acids that also help remove the sun-damaged cells just before you take a shower should do the trick nicely.

  • Visit a professional esthetician

From time to time, make sure to pay a visit to a professional esthetician or a cosmetic doctor for treatment, or simply for advice on which products to use to care for your skin.

A visit to the skincare professional is also a must if you have any brown spots or redness that won’t go away.
