Supermodel Cindy Crawford Says Decollete Needs TLC
Decollete. Exactly what part of a woman's body is that?
Don't let the French elegance of the word fool you. The decollete is actually the upper part of a woman's chest, below the neck.
Iconic model Cindy Crawford was just mentioning the very delicate skin of the decollete in a recent interview with Allure magazine. And we here at BeautyTipToday, featured some smart, anti-aging beauty secrets from the supermodel, who looks gorgeous at age 43, mother of two.
"ALLURE: Are there any areas you take particularly good care of?
CINDY CRAWFORD: My hands and my décolleté. In L.A., there are 65-year-old women walking around in Juicy sweatpants, and from the back, you'd think they were 20. But when you see their hands or their neck, you know. When I put moisturizer on my face, I use a little extra so that I have enough to cover my hands. Most people don't start caring about the décolleté until it's too late, but I'm religious about it."
Why does the decollete need special TLC, or tender loving care?
According to www.liv.com, a website dedicated to helping raise awareness about early detection of breast cancer, the skin of the decollete, is quite delicate:
"The skin on the décolleté area is more sensitive than skin on other parts of our body; it is thinner, less moisturized, has less elasticity and there is no fat tissue below. Consequently, this skin is more likely to show signs of aging with dryness, hyper-pigmentation and age spots."
We recommend these 2 wonderful decollete creams to firm and smooth the skin:
1. Borba Neck and Decollete Cream ($40, www.DermStore.com)
2. Erno Laszlo Intensive Decollete Cream ($95, www.ernolaszlo.com)
