Chest and cleavage wrinkles can actually occur for a few different reasons and we want to explain to you, in the simplest of terms, how to get rid of chest wrinkles once and for all.
How Do They Form?
Wrinkles along the chest area and around the cleavage area can be formed for a variety of reasons and they are not all necessarily in our control. Here are some of the ways they come to fruition:
- Through natural loss of collagen and thinning of skin which occurs naturally as we age
- Through constant folding of the skin; sleeping on your side or tossing and turning all night can cause unnecessary friction that eventually leads to these wrinkles
- By way of genetics; sometimes it’s as simple as a commonality between our parents and our parents’ parents
- Natural sunlight is one of the sneakier culprits; nothing seems menacing in the light of the sun
- UV rays from unnatural light is not good for your skin either
- Fluctuating weight; when you lose weight or gain weight rapidly or often, the skin starts to react in the way of unwanted wrinkles
- Certain medications that allow skin to thin over time can also cause wrinkles to develop on our more fragile skin, like in the chest area
The good news is that chest wrinkles are avoidable and don’t require too much effort to smoothe out!
How Do I Treat Chest Wrinkles?
It’s important to realize that the skin on your chest and other parts of the body are really not all that different from the skin on our faces; we just pay more attention to our faces because that’s the first thing we see in the mirror in the mornings.
The biggest difference is mainly that, and perhaps also that our cleavage area skin is a little more sensitive and thin than other areas.
Still, there are lots of easy ways to help ourselves treat this sensitive area.
Aloe Vera is that all-natural ingredient that doesn’t cost a fortune, but works as though it should. It has been used for years and years as an effective treatment for rashes, irritations, burns, and for reasons unrelated to simply skincare as well.
It is also recognized as a powerful anti-aging ingredient with wrinkle-fighting properties that work hard and actually provide results. Since aloe vera is particularly gentle and hydrating, it is great for an area like the chest, which requires a gentler touch.
You can find aloe vera in many forms, from its natural leaf to bottled in store. The more aloe vera in the mix the better.
When it comes to a serum for wrinkles on the body and chest area, it’s important to be very selective. Using certain oils can be drying rather than hydrating. On the other hand, a good anti-aging serum can revitalize your skin, and smoothe out and already-existing wrinkles.
The one serum we have tried and tested here at Anti-Aging Solutions is the White Lotus Organic Derma Roller Serum. The best part of this serum is that it acts in more ways than one. It’s essentially a “serum pack” that can act as a stand-alone moisturizer for any area of the body, and could also be used when performing skin-needling. But again, it works perfectly as a moisturizer used on its own targeting bodily wrinkles.
The ingredients in the serums increase cell regeneration, create collagen, repair UV ray damage and increase circulation as well. None of the serums have any preservatives or additives, and are vegan, which is always a plus!
Using moisturizer or a good body lotion on your body can definitely prevent and improve wrinkles on your thinner skin. Hydration, sun protection, and moisturizing is are absolutely crucial for youthful looking skin and can help the appearance of wrinkles.
If you use a moisturizer that contains sunscreen and allows for a “broad spectrum” coverage, this is the best way to achieve an anti-aging effect, and prevent wrinkles. Often people do not realize that most of skin-aging has something to do with direct and indirect exposure to the sun. This damages collagen and elastin in the skin.
The skin loses its firmness and elasticity and begins to sag and wrinkle when it is not taken care of.
Prevent Wrinkles On Your Chest & Cleavage
It’s important to remember that wrinkles are a natural part of aging, and aging is a natural part of life. There is nothing about that to be in denial about; there are just easy ways to age better. Any time is the right time to start taking preemptive measures to prevent chest and cleavage wrinkles.
1. Wear the Right Bra
Make sure you support your breasts and keep them in their natural position as much as possible. When your bra doesn’t fit right or if you use one that is uncomfortable, it will cause creases in your chest area that are easily preventable. Avoid push-up bras, and bras that are constricting like in sportswear. This is one area in which quality is very important.
2. Limit Sun Exposure
You have probably figured by now, that as harmless as it seems, the sun is actually the main contributor of wrinkles and creases, and numerous other skin-related issues. It causes that rapid aging that can be prevented with a little quality sunscreen.
Avoid UV rays when you can, and when you can’t, ensure you are using SPF 30 each day, —whether you can see the sun or not. Don’t forget your chest area! If you can use a sunscreen that is a little above SPF 30, like the The Organic Pharmacy Cellular Protection Sunscreen which is SPF 50, and provides a fuller coverage. It provides protections against UVA and UVB rays. It’s on sunscreen that is easily absorbed and is infused with Aloe, Rose Hip, Shea Butter and Calendula what does its job and then some, without leaving behind a residue.
Sunburns on your chest causes the break down of collagen and causes irreparable damage to the sensitive skin structure. This effects the ability of the skin to stretch and repair itself.
3. Ensure Good Sleeping Habits
Sleeping on your back prevents chest wrinkles; when you sleep on your side the constant folding of your skin causes creases that last. It is particularly an issue for women who are well-endowed, as the weight of your breasts can allow for wrinkles to form is they are not getting enough support.
When you are sleeping, give yourself support in this area by using separation pads or by avoiding sleeping on your side altogether.
Prevention is always easier than correction when it comes to any area of the skin and aging-skin overall. That doesn’t mean you can’t reverse damage if you already have chest wrinkles.
There are very manageable ways to repair existing lines while keeping new ones from forming at the same time. One easy way to start is by acknowledging that your chest area requires attention, and moisturization just like your face. Just because it is not as visible as your face, doesn’t mean it doesn’t matter.
Creating gradual changes to your lifestyle, like getting exercise and changing sleeping positions are the next ways to get rid of those chest wrinkles once and for all. Hydrating and taking good care of yourself will pay off sooner than you realize.
