If you haven’t yet noticed, we’re placing quite a big focus on our gals this month. Well, it is Breast Cancer Awareness month after all. But focusing on our décolletage should be more than just awareness. It should be more than just the scare of cancer. And it should be more than just a month.
It’s time to keep abreast (see what we did with that pun…) of how to take care of your bust throughout the year.
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise
The skin around your chest can become rather delicate, so keep it looking healthy and hydrated with a good moisturiser. Nivea’s Firming Body Lotion, R54.99, not only moisturises, but it also works with your skin’s own Q10 components to keep it smooth and supple.
Say no-no to yo-yo
Your breasts consist of fatty tissue, among other things, and gaining and losing weight too quickly or yo-yo dieting can affect them negatively – eventually causing them to sag. Keep a firm hold on your weight while firming and lifting the area with Avon’s Solutions Body Lift and Firm Bust, R155, or the Clarins Bust Beauty Extra-Lift Gel, R485.
Get a grip
Massage helps keep your bust firm and increases the skin’s elasticity by helping to improve blood circulation. Massage the area in a clockwise and then anticlockwise motion. Or get your man to help out! Try the Intense Plumping Lotion by BreastPlusMax, R399.
