There’s a new buzz about what makes for a ‘body beautiful’ – and it might take you by surprise!

18 June 2015

Summer 2015 is all about the visible collar bone, or so a new survey by has found.

The rest of the ‘most desirable body parts’ list was fairly predictable, with toned stomach, toned bum and defined arms making up the top three most wanted features. But, perhaps surprisingly, visible collar bone beat thigh gap to make the number four spot.

Most likely part of a general trend towards a slim frame, some women are genetically predisposed to a prominent clavicle.  Though if this isn’t the case for you, there are a few simple ways to accentuate your collar bones.

A good skincare regime is a beauty essential, and while we may take care of the skin on our faces, the décolletage – that’s the area around your neck, shoulders and chest – is often left neglected.

The Harley Medical Group’s skin care expert Bernadette Harte explains,

The skin across the décolletage and upper chest is incredibly sensitive, and is one of the first places women who have suffered from over exposure to UVA rays begin to see fine lines and signs of ageing.

To help keep the skin around this area protected, I recommend The Harley Medical Group’s own Enhanced Performance SPF25. The formula is rich in Shea butter which has excellent moisturising properties alongside Vitamin A, E and F to prevent premature ageing, as well as providing four star rating for UVA and UVB protection.

Dermaroller is one of the popular skin treatments we offer for the décolletage, I recommend a minimum course of three sessions. The fine needles stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in firmer and plumper looking skin.

And once your skin’s glowing, add a necklace to your outfit to draw the eye. Chokers are brilliant for this as they sit just above the collar bone – plus they’re very fashionable at the moment!
