All year round we lavish care and attention on our faces.

But all too often we neglect necks and decolletage only to get a rude awakening when the summer comes and necklines plunge to reveal more cleavage.

The fact is, the skin of these areas is thin and delicate, and requires even more care than the face.

The neck is practically devoid of supporting bone, and there are few sebaceous glands to provide natural oils.

In addition, the relative lack of collagen causes skin to lose elasticity and become dehydrated very easily.

These, then, are the places where the first wrinkles usually appear, and where the signs of ageing are most apparent over the years.
