LET’S TALK CREPEY SKIN

Crepey Skin - Help
With age, the production of collagen and elastin, the natural proteins that keep our skin firm and elastic, slowly declines. This is a prolonged and gradual process that may take years to appear. However, they say in most cases, your skin starts to turn crepey in your 40’s.

Crepey skin is NOT the same as wrinkles.  Wrinkles first appear as creases in the skin and then gradually begin to look more liked deep crevices. The wrinkles start appearing on areas associated with your facial expressions like laugh lines and crows’ feet.  While wrinkles usually appear in a small area of your skin, crepey skin appears on larger surface areas.  It affects both the epidermis and the dermis (deeper layers) of your skin and is due to the drop in the production of collagen and elastin.

 What are some causes of Crepey Skin?

#1 – The number one factor that you cannot avoid is aging!  Aging slows down the production of collagen and elastin.  As a result, your skin can no longer bounce back as it used to.  It also starts sagging and produces fewer new skin cells.

#2 – Decreased Oil Production – The oil production in your oil glands also decreases with age.  The oil produced by your skin forms a natural protective barrier.  This barrier helps to lock in moisture and keeps your skin soft.  Decreased oil production causes dry skin and can eventually cause crepey skin.

#3 – Dehydration – If your skin lacks moisture and is dry, it can turn crepey.  Dry skin can also be aggravated with age.  Make sure you are keeping your skin hydrated properly and have good water intake.

#4 – Sun Damage – Apart from aging, damaging UV light is the most common cause of crepey skin. When you expose your skin to the harmful UV rays, it breaks down collagen and elastin.  As a result, your skin starts to age more quickly.

#5 – Weight Loss – If you have experienced drastic weight loss, your skin can become crepe-like earlier than others.  This is because when you lose the layers of fat underneath your skin, your skin becomes loose very quickly and causes the appearance of wrinkles.

What can you do to delay the onset of Crepey Skin?

While there aren’t any supplements or particular foods that have been shown to improve crepey skin, a well-balanced diet that is high in antioxidants (colorful fruits and vegetables) can help support the health of your skin and the rest of your body.   Vitamin C may be beneficial for skin health because it plays a role in collagen production.  Eating more antioxidants won’t fix your skin overnight, but it can help prevent breakdown over the years.

Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!
Water is one of the major components of our body tissues, cells, and fluids, and it maintains cell health.  If you are dehydrated, it will affect your skin and make it appear crepey.  STAY Hydrated!

Use products that are gentle on your skin and do not damage the natural lipid barriers.  A good moisturizer can go a long way.  Moisturizing oils like coconut oil, olive oil, and cocoa butter can greatly help moisturize and soften your skin. 

A simple sugar scrub, like Suzotic Brown Sugar Scrub,  may also help remove dry, dead skin cells and improve the appearance of your skin overall.  However, the best thing you can do at home is to make sure you are using face and body cleansers that do not strip your skin of its natural lipid and protein barrier and properly moisturizing when you are done cleansing.

As we grow older, we experience various health conditions that we didn’t ask for.   Some are easier to deal with than others, and aging skin care can be a tricky one because results DO NOT show overnight.  If you have lost that smooth complexion or have crepey skin, try Suzotic Whipped Cocoa Body Butter.

Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over the skin to hold in moisture.  It is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals.  These substances may improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.    
Frankincense essential oils is known as the king of essential oils.  This powerful oil is revered for its ability to beautify and rejuvenate skin when applied topically.

Remember, consistency is key in getting results, so do not get discouraged if you don’t see immediate results, this is normal.
