Looking for a quick fix that doesn’t require major downtime? These five secrets will bring you one step closer to a better-looking chest—no surgery required.
Use Makeup to Enhance Your Cleavage
Jamie Kern Lima, cofounder of IT Cosmetics, says makeup is an easy way to enhance your cleavage. “Use a matte shade that’s two shades darker than your skin and buff it in the area to create a natural-looking size and shape,” she says. Our pick: IT Cosmetics My Sculpted Face Contouring Palette ($38), which contains six universally flattering shades of powder—two for highlighting, four for contouring—to create shadows and shading for better-looking cleavage.
Erase Spots and Discoloration With Skin Brighteners
Any topical products that contain hydroquinone, azelaic acid, retinol or bleaching agents can help erase sun-induced damage on your chest. Other options are Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and lasers that break up pigmentation, too.

Keep Your Skin Firm and Supple
As collagen and elastin are lost as a result of the aging process, skin becomes loose and thin. “Skin on the chest is thinner than facial skin, so it shows more wrinkles and has less ability to retain moisture,” says Torrance, CA, plastic surgeon Linda Swanson, MD. Drink plenty of water and load up on a good moisturizer.
Diminish the Look of Stretch Marks
Your breasts can experience stretch marks from weight-related changes. Using an anti-stretch mark cream, like Cle de Peau Beaute Body Cream ($150), may help because it preserves the integrity of the outermost layer of skin and keeps it hydrated.
Get Rid of Crepey Skin With a Laser
Dr. Swanson says that crepey skin on the chest is a direct result of sun exposure and aging. A fractional laser treatment can resurface your skin by stimulating collagen formation for a tighter, smoother look.
