Sun exposure, age and side-sleeping all play big roles in the development of lines and wrinkles on your décolleté or chest area, a problem many women develop due to stopping their skin care regimen after reaching their necks. As you age, however, these wrinkles get deeper and more prominent, making any product that promises a younger appearance the holy grail. However, many of these “saviors” do nothing at all, leaving skin exactly how it was.

Enter: Wrinkles Schminkles Chest Smoothing Kit ($28), one of the many kits from the brand sporting a range of 100-percent medical-grade silicone pads designed to treat different areas like the chest, neck, forehead, eyes and mouth—here’s the best part—overnight. Before you pass it off as a hoax, consider the science behind it. By placing the silicone pad (adhesive side down) on your skin while you sleep (you can also wear it during the day), your skin is kept taut so it’s unable to crease or wrinkle. While skin remains tight, the healing properties of the silicone (traditionally used to treat scarring) deliver a hefty dose of hydration to it, bringing blood flow to the skin’s surface to help stimulate the production of collagen.
The results speak for themselves, and after you see the results, you won’t want to take it off. The heart-shaped pad is reusable up to 20–40 times, and while the overnight effect is crazy clear, consistent use of the pad will also help prevent further wrinkles from forming in the area as well, which is usually the first place for signs of aging to creep up. We all know what this means—time to stock up on some beauty sleep.
