Crepey Skin: What It is and How to Get Rid of It

Posted by JQ on Nov 1st 2020

Hello, Beautiful! 

Do you have saggy, dry, devitalized skin? If so, you may have crepey skin.

But don't worry, it sounds worse than it is.

This common condition can happen to your face or any other place on your body when you lose a lot of weight or just simply with aging. 

Sun damage is usually a main factor because it reduces collagen and elastin. 

Good news is you can use products that contain humectants like glycerin, aloe and hyaluronic acid to help hydrate it (like my whipped body butter that has glycerin, my face butter that has aloe, or our best selling Hyaluronic acid serum— but you can also find over-the-counter products with these ingredients, too.

For more on how to use your Hyaluronic Acid the right way, go here. 

If purchasing over-the-counter products be sure to do your research on the quality so that you're not wasting your money! There are staples I've used for years in my spa like Cetaphil that will help you lock in moisture, too. 

And don't forget to wear a hydrating SPF, like our natural sunscreen - The Good Sunscreen - to prevent further damage!

If eyes are your main concern, you may consider using our Soothing Eye Balm and/or our Eye Dream of Sleep wrinkle repair mask to help fight against the signs of aging around your delicate, thin tissue. 

Products with Retinol, like our Advanced Retinol Night Creme, are wonderful to wear at night because it can help you restore Collagen and increase your cell rate turnover. Other exfoliants, like our luxurious body scrub and Brighten and Reveal Exfoliating Pads help with the process, too.

Bottom line, aim to boost your body’s collagen and elastin, and focus on hydrating your skin  - not just using occlusives like coconut oil that help you retain moisture. 

Certain exercises may help with the appearance of crepey skin, too.
