No one wants to see thin, saggy, shriveled-looking skin on their upper arms, legs, neck or décolletage. But with age, elastin in your skin can begin to break down, moisture can be lost and crepey skin can begin to creep up, especially after those dry winter months.
So how can you battle back crepey skin and get ready to show off your skin once spring arrives?
It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3…
Because dry skin can look more crinkly, exfoliation is a must.
And one of the easiest ways to exfoliate is by dry brushing.
Dry brushes are generally made with natural bristle and are best used right before you bathe or shower.
Those bristles not only whisk away dead, dry skin cells to reveal the fresh, youthful skin below, but also boost circulation to help keep skin firm and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite.
Talk about a win, win!
To take your exfoliation up a notch, especially if you’re dealing with crepey skin around your neck and décolletage, try a product that combines mechanical exfoliation with natural alpha hydroxy acid exfoliation, like our Micro-Crystals Pure Perfection Polish.
It works on two levels to buff away uneven cellular surface buildup and reveal healthier, glowing skin.
Next, because a lack of hydration is a hallmark of crepey skin, it’s important to restore the lost moisture that can leave skin sagging.
For crepey skin on your arms or legs, look for creams that boost collagen and elastin, while hydrating and firming your skin, with ingredients like vitamins A, C and E, along with extracts of thyme, such as our Intense Body Soufflé.
For crepey skin on your neck or decollate, we recommend smoothing on our Deep Cellular Renewal & Collagen Booster.
The nightly crème is infused with 0.5% active Retinol to stimulate deep cellular renewal, increase stagnant collagen production and firm and lift skin.
An added complex of natural botanicals and intensely moisturizing Vitamin B5, work collectively to soothe and hydrate, resulting in supple, renewed skin without the common irritation normally associated with retinoids.
Spread it on wherever you’re experiencing problems, but also don’t forget to protect other areas before crepey skin starts.
It’s time to do more than just live in your skin. It’s time to love it.
And with those three steps, you’re sure to do just that!
