Secret Love

By Stacey Potts

Don’t forget the love! We know now how important it is to look after our faces and even the skin all over our bodies. We know when we go in the sun or even in windy cold weather we need to protect ourselves. But what about those bits we forget? You know our necks and our decolletage are the parts of us that are most likely to show our age. The skin here is thinner than that on our faces often exposing it to the same wear and tear. We can let you know here in Secret love how to take care of the neck and decolletage so they look the very best they can. It’s a lifting story you won’t want to miss out on.

Here is a quick reminder of how aging works.

When we age, our skin begins to lose its collagen and elastin, often resulting in wrinkles and sagging. A natural part of our journey, yes, but often we put more stress onto our skin causing it to age quicker. That’s probably something most of us want to hide right?

A brand that’s not afraid to target this area and has been widening its beauty collection is La Maison Valmont. One secret they are not hiding from you is their new V-Neck Cream. Not only does it moisturise your neck right down to your decolletage (below the neckline) but also includes 5 Youth enhancing actions that sink deeper enhancing the beauty from the outside in.

So, what are these actions?

Well, there are five key measures the brand outlines that we have broked down.

Starting with Vitamin C, we all know it’s in fruits and vegetables but now is a really popular ingredient in beauty products. It’s good to know, Vitamin C contains antioxidants which are substances that can prevent or slow down damage to cells. This damage is caused by free radicals, unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental and other pressures. Here it is used to help stimulate collagen (the natural skins elastic).

The second key ingredient that helps stimulate this collagen mentioned and also elastin is known as Fibroboost. It bolsters the skin giving a smooth finish on the surface.

Also containing G-A-G booster that promotes the production of glycosaminoglycans (G-A-G), this ingredient helps to support and maintains the skin’s structural proteins such as collagen and elastin. This means moisturised and glowing skin. Having the G-A-G booster in the formula is part of the actions Valmont has used to help our skin.

The Peptide cocktail is another active ingredient found in the formula that helps fight wrinkles and reduces the fine lines. Peptides, like the fibroblast, provides a cushion-like feel for the skin smoothing it and locking in hydration.

Lastly, the inclusion of Densiderm in the formula strengthens the fibres in our body and skin so our skin becomes firmer and appears younger.

All of these actions help the neck and neckline reveal and retain a more youthful appearance. A truly lifting experience that gives five treatments in one formula that Valmont has harnessed here for our necks and decolletage.

Packaged in a 50ml jar, the brand’s signature metallic green lids represent the green surgical caps but these products mean without no surgery. A great reminder during your nighttime or morning skincare routine.

Now with better options for these hidden parts, we can be far more confident in showing them off. A way of saying to everyone you love the skin your in because of how radiant it is.
