Related: 30s Beach Body, Bare Your Back Ways to perfect: “When you’re hitting your 40s, the skin around your décolletage area may be starting to loosen and show signs of aging. You want to help maintain the elasticity of your collarbones, neck area and just below.” Related: 50s Beach Body, Spotlight The Shoulders “Using a highlighter across the collarbones is a great way to diffuse light and create some spotlight points in these areas, too,” says Niramwalla. ”If you are only going with the highlighting route, there’s no need to start in advance! Just rub on and off you go!” Related: 60s+ Beach Body, Call Attention To Your Calves Summer skincare routine: “The skin in the décolletage area is losing elasticity and needs care, so making sure to use the right skincare products for the right areas (i.e. neck/bust firming creams). They’ll help to maintain the current level of elasticity as well as add a boost while they are on the skin.” Related: 20s Beach Body, Emphasize The Thighs “Exfoliation is great, but in this case, must be done lightly and in moderation,” says Niramwalla. The thin skin around these areas will stretch more easily, so you need to be gentle when ridding yourself of dead skin cells. “As far as skincare goes, three to four weeks of consistent care, using the right creams regularly and in the right way, will result in glowing, beautiful skin that you’ll want to show off.” Go-to product: A firming cream or lotion designed to help maintain the current elasticity as well as help plump the area up.
