How to care for your Neck and Décolletage

"Extremely susceptible to sun damage, dryness and dehydration, the neck & décolletage possesses some of the thinnest skin on the body and requires a focused formula."

Dr Yannis Alexandrides MD

Most of us include cleansing and moisturising in our daily routine, but how many of us pay attention to our chest? The skin on our neck and décolletage is very fragile as it produces less oil and melanocytes than other parts of the body, but also often receives more sun exposure.

Neglecting to nourish the neck and décolletage can result in damage and premature ageing! Here’s a few steps you can take to ensure this area is well looked after.

DEFINE AND TONE

Inspired by Dr Yannis’ Y-Lift Surgery - a cosmetic procedure that lifts the face, jawline and neck of the patient – the Celestial Black Diamond Neck & Décolletage Serum is a topical solution to address visible signs of ageing across the area.

This serum blends a high concentration of brightening and firming actives with our signature diamond delivery system that increases tone, texture and collagen within the skin.

CELESTIAL BLACK DIAMOND NECK & DÉCOLLETAGE SERUM

LIFT AND FIRM

Unveil a rejuvenated complexion with the Celestial Black Diamond Lifting and Firming Neck Mask. Ideal for those suffering from lax and ageing skin, this hydrogel mask, tones and defines the complexion through a series of expertly designed formulas.

The neck and décolletage segment utilises a biomimetic peptide to firm and sculpt the area. After use the targeted area will immediately appear firmer, smoother, calmer and plumper.

MOISTURISE

Nourish the neck area with a rich moisturiser after you cleanse – moisturising the skin will keep it hydrated and protected from environmental aggressors.

The Celestial Black Diamond Cream is an intensive treatment moisturiser which targets more advanced signs of ageing. The concentrated formula utilises black diamond particles which help the active ingredients penetrate the skin, delivering more intense results. The Celestial Black Diamond Cream provides the optimum environment for collagen and hyaluronic acid production, improving elasticity, plumpness, hydration, texture and tone.

LASER TREATMENT

We are big believers in using both topical and non-invasive treatments to receive the best end goal! iPixel is a fractional ablative laser treatment that can resurface the skin and can improve the appearance of texture and pigment related concerns. It’s highly effective for treating wrinkles, age spots and rough skin on the neck and decolletage by stimulating collagen renewal for a refreshed and radiant complexion.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
