SOS forgotten areas

Neck, décolleté, elbows and knees are too often neglected in our daily beauty routine. Overworked, they deserve all our attention. Catch up with our expert advice...

Even though you moisturise your body morning and night, you forget about certain areas or just skim over them without paying more attention. The neck, the décolleté, but also the elbows and knees are a little less pampered. The skin suffers the consequences!

SOS zones oubliées BANNER

The neck and décolleté area is particularly thin and therefore more fragile. Subject to external aggressions such as light, cold, wind and incessant movement, it gradually shows wrinkles and spots. Elbows and knees are subject to constant rubbing by clothes and dry out.

Often left out of our beauty routine, it is important to moisturise them and use targeted care products to repair and protect them from skin ageing. Our expert, Claudine Coquet, Director of Guinot Training, sheds light on the subject.

The neck and décolleté, to be placed under high protection

Poor in sebaceous glands, the neck and décolleté become more vulnerable to attacks from the cold and wind and can show premature ageing. Added to this is the "text neck", linked to the abusive use of our smartphones: a wrinkle sets in at the fold of the neck. To remedy this, you need to change your habits! Always finish applying your face cream and serum to the neck and décolleté. Before the age of 40, your daily skincare routine will suffice. After that, opt for a more targeted formula such as the Long Life Neck Cream, which, thanks to its cocktail of active ingredients, reshapes the epidermis, smoothes out wrinkles and restores firmness. Apply it starting from the décolleté and working up to the neck. And for an in-depth treatment, treat yourself to the Summum Lift treatment in a beauty salon, which has been very popular since its launch. The protocol takes into account the face, neck and décolleté for a truly stunning result.

Elbows and knees, to be softened

Often forgotten in our daily routine, they dry out quickly. With the rubbing of clothes and movements, the skin thickens in this area to protect itself and becomes rough. To restore softness, exfoliate once or twice a week with a suitable scrub like Easy Body Scrub. Massage in very gentle circular motions to remove dead skin cells and to refine and soften the skin. Then, nourish the skin with Nutriscience Balm perfectly adapted to this area: it restores the hydrolipidic film and protects against dehydration. Then, on a daily basis, ideally apply your Long Life Body Cream morning and evening, paying particular attention to the elbows and knees.
