NassifMD® - Definition of crepey skin
There are several factors that can cause crepey skin, including prolonged sun exposure, aging, dehydration, tobacco use, and stress. Chronic sun exposure disrupts the skin structure and can cause looser, sagging skin. Aging is associated with a loss of skin firmness, as younger skin tends to have more collagen, elastin, and higher water content. Dehydration and tobacco use can also contribute to the appearance of crepey skin. Additionally, stress and other physical stresses like an unhealthy diet, UV radiation, pollution, and smoking can impact the function and appearance of the skin.
The good news is that research shows it is possible to reverse crepey skin with various strategies, including the use of topical solutions. One clinical trial found that a topical body-firming cream was effective in improving crepey, lax, and photodamaged skin. Another trial looked at a multimodal facial skincare routine and found that it increased firmness and elasticity while reducing the appearance of photodamage.
To prevent and improve the appearance of crepey skin, it is recommended to protect the skin from sun damage, eat an antioxidant-rich diet, stay hydrated, avoid smoking and tobacco products, and use targeted skincare products and lotions that contain active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, retinol, and alpha-hydroxy acids.
Some of the best products for crepey skin include NassifMD® Crepe Inhibitor Triple Action Body Butter, which is intensely moisturizing and designed to firm and tighten crepey skin on the arms and legs.
