Often, its the fine and exposed skin on your neck, chest and hands that can betray your age as these areas are harder to conceal and commonly overlooked in most beauty routines. Theres no point spending hundreds on skincare and makeup for your face if your neck, chest and hands look wrinkly and skin damaged. Protect these areas by applying your regular moisturiser and sunscreen, and pay them special attention with these tips.
