Crepey chest?
« on: October 10, 2017, 08:02:25 PM »
Hey everyone...

What do you do about a crepey décolleté? Is it pretty much down to Retin-A? Any OTC recs?

Thanks!  :heartthrob:

I have to confess that I have no solid answers. In my young days of suntanning with abandon I caused so much damage to that area that I have pretty much written it off. I have read that one should treat the neck and décolleté with the same care as the face and that makes sense. Following that wisdom, retin-A would seem to be worth considering but I would make sure it’s safe. It feels to me like the skin in that area is even more delicate than that on my face. Please let us know what you learn and decide!
