Loose, Crepey Skin

What is it?

Loose, crepey skin is a condition characterised by skin that has lost its elasticity and appears thin, wrinkled, and saggy. The skin may have a texture similar to crepe paper, hence the name 'crepey' skin. It is skin that has lost its elasticity and doesn't quite spring back how it used to. This condition can affect any part of the body but is particularly noticeable on the face, neck, and upper arms.

What Causes it?

There are many things that can cause the skin to appear loose and crepey. It is often a combination of ageing, genetics, hormones, and the long-term effects of sun damage. Losing volume under the skin often results in a crepey and sagging appearance. This can be due to weight loss or just a part of the natural ageing process as the skin loses its supporting structure as a person ages. When the skin is allowed to become dry and dehydrated, this can also cause it to look crepey.



What Can You Do To Help Naturally?

If you're concerned about the appearance of loose, crepey skin, there are several day-to-day actions you can take to help improve your skin's look and feel. Firstly, protecting your skin from UV exposure by wearing sunscreen or staying in the shade can help prevent damage to the skin's collagen and elastin fibres. Secondly, staying hydrated can help the skin stay plump and healthy. Avoiding smoking, which can damage the skin, is another important step. Regular exfoliation and massage with a medical-grade product can also help improve the texture and tone of the skin. By taking these simple steps, you can help keep your skin looking and feeling its best.
