Protect Your Decollete...

We are all aware of the importance of taking care of our skin and religiously cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise our faces and necks. We moisturise our arms, legs and get summer ready to catch the rays and grab that sun summer glow....
but do we really take enough care of the decollete?

When on holiday lying by the pool or on the beach, or soaking up the sun in the garden we are mindful of the sun creams and protection we need, but one of the first areas to catch the is the chest area. Moisturising is not enough to prevent that wrinkled fountain erupting from our cleavage ... we need to make sure that we care for and nourish this area to avoid this: 

So here are 5 easy steps to keep those wrinkles away:

Step 1

While in the shower, thoroughly exfoliate your décolletage 3 to 4 times a week.

Autophagy... what is it?
Autophagy... what is it?

Autophagy, meaning “self-eating,” is an intracellular degradation process that allows cells to recycle damaged intracellular components to generate energy and provide building blocks to create new cellular structures. 
In simpler terms, it is a process that keeps your body's cells in proper balance by taking old or damaged parts of a cell and recycling them. These recycled bits and bobs are turned into amino acids that can be used for fuel and more.
