The truth is, it may not be the products you are or aren’t using, it’s most likely how you’re using them (or should we say not using them)!
When it comes to skincare, Myth Minx is here to tell you that your face doesn’t end at your face; it ends at your nipples! Targeting both the neck and décolletage is crucial to nurture and protect this delicate area on a daily basis.
Have you been ritually applying your skincare across your face, neck and décolletage each morning and night? If not, you could be exposing these areas to premature ageing and skin damage.
More so than other areas of the body, the neck is much more susceptible to premature ageing. This is because the skin is much finer and has lower sebaceous activity, meaning less oil flow. Combine these two factors with excessive amounts of daily incidental sun
exposure and you have yourself the perfect storm for premature ageing.
If we move onto the décolletage it doesn’t take a scientist to work out that years of incidental sun exposure (think V-neck tops) and lack of protection (SPF) this area is known to experience this highest volume of photo ageing (AKA sun induced accelerated ageing) compared to other areas of the body.
In professional skin clinics one of the most common questions from clients include how to improve the texture and tone of skin on their décolletage; the resounding answer; prevention is better than cure.
If you’re unsure whether the changes on your décolletage are normal or a result of sun induced photo-ageing, check out Myth Minx checklist below:
It’s never too late to start a new habit and prevent any further damage from occurring, try incorporating Myth Minx neck and décolletage protection lifestyle tips:
How to adjust your homecare regime
We know that prevention is better than cure, so to best support these parts of the body that age with ease it’s vital to protect daily with Age Defence SPF50+; apply a generous amount over your face, neck and décolletage each morning before you leave the house.
Maybe you scrimped on the SPF50+ in years past, fear not, there are high intensity correcting solutions at hand. Myth Minx go-to’s for addressing prematurely and photo aged skin include:
Don’t let the name lead you astray, you should be applying this beauty over your décolletage too, Myth Minx knows that Ultra Firming Eye & Neck Cream is the most underrated homecare solution for this area. Through the use of biomimetic peptides and clinically proven
ingredients Skinstitut’s Ultra Firming Eye & Neck cream has been designed to address signs of visible skin ageing, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles.

Myth Minx Pro Tip
Always apply a pea sized amount of Ultra Firming Eye & Neck Cream over the neck and décolletage each evening. For added intensity Vitamin C 100% can be mixed in to target UV damage and improve overall skin colour, radiance and tone.
If you’re super savvy with your skincare regime Retinol Serum can be applied underneath Ultra Firming Eye & Neck cream on the décolletage.
There are also loads of treatments, including Micro Needling and peels, that can target photo damage on the décolletage. To find your closest skin therapist visit the Skinstitut stockist locator www.skinstitut.com/stockist.
