I tried a few natural crepey skin remedies that I think really worked for me. These tips helped significantly reduce crepey skin on my face - but the most impressive results were on my neck and chest.
Ok, enough of the neck, how about the worst area - the crow's feet!
NOTE: I know these two pictures look disconnected - but the before picture was taken years ago with a different camera.
But still you can see the difference and the reduction of lines around the eyes. The skin no longer looks as crepey as before!
Also, notice that the few lines that are left are going UPWARD and not down like in the before picture?
I think it's because the facial workouts are lifting my facial muscles up and my cheeks are higher as a result.
WHY DOES OUR SKIN GET CREPEY?
There are many reasons but the main culprit is thinning skin due to collagen loss and muscle atrophy.
Women notice it more than men because of fluctuating hormones.
This is especially true a few years before menopause.
And, it seems to get worse after menopause.
But, that doesn't mean we can't do something to help improve the look and feel of our skin.
Massage And Exercise!
Manipulate the skin - whether on your face, neck, or arms massaging the skin and building up the underlying muscle worked for me. It help reduce that thin, crepey, paper look.
While we all can't afford to get a full body massage, here are things you can do at home to take advantage of the benefits of a massage.
Most common reasons for crinkly, crepe–like appearance is due to age related thinning and wrinkling of the dermis. However, sometimes extremely dry skin can take on that "waffley " look too.
So hydrating is of course an important choice when looking for natural remedies.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!
From head-to-toe. Whether that crepey look is on your elbows or under your eyes – deep hydration can make a difference.
A great natural moisturizer you can make at home is a combination of honey and olive oil.
It's really simple and there is no special measuring need. Just try this:
Don't worry, it won't be sticky. The warm water will rinse away the honey and all that's left is a little bit of olive oil :-)
Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate!
Manually exfoliating the dermis can help stimulate collagen production and improve the appearance of dry dull skin – anywhere on the face and body.
A simple homemade remedy is the sugar and olive oil scrub. Sugar naturally contains alpha hydroxy acid (AHA's) and the olive oil is a great hydrator. PERFECT COMBO!
Again, no specific measurements needed, just try this:
In my opinion and experience, the best natural home remedy for crepey skin is a good facial exercise routine. It's safe and inexpensive.
However, there are other options that can help reduce crepey skin on the face and neck.
Some take more time than others and some are more effective (and more costly) than others. These remedies include:
Crepey Under Eye Skin? - Watch this video and see before and after pictures. I've been using this for years.
Intensive Renewal Therapy Facial - Try this facial once a month or so for clean pores and increase cell turnover.
Hide Wrinkles - Temporary dermal filler to hide wrinkles and other imperfections.
Copper Peptides - New copper peptide complex. OTC, inexpensive anti-wrinkle copper creams.
