What is Crepey Skin and How To Prevent It

A guest blog post written by Dr. Susan Van Dyke, MD

Ever see crepe paper up close? It has those fine crinkles in it. That perfectly describes the appearance of skin when it is very dry or when it has been around for a few decades!

What Causes Crepey Skin?

Why does getting older make us more likely to have crepey skin? Ageing brings many changes in the body and of course in the skin. But age is not the only culprit, some changes are caused by our own actions; like smoking, drinking, laying out in the sun as well as things we can’t easily control; like pollution, stress and poor health. Crepey skin is most commonly seen on exposed areas of arms, legs, décolleté and neck.

All these factors cause the skin to lose basic elements of structure, firmness and elasticity. Collagen and elastin decline and are not replaced efficiently. Regrettably the peak of collagen and elastin production is around age 29, after that it is all downhill……unless you take action!

I advise my patients to get into a daily regimen of good skin care to combat the appearance of aging by supporting the production of these important components of skin.

Establishing a daily skincare regimen focused on supporting collagen and elastin production can significantly improve the skin's texture and firmness.
