Wrinkling forearms and chest

What lotion or creams help reduce the wrinkling of my forearms and above breast.





------------------------------

Hi,

Ah, yes, wrinkles around the chest and arms is a difficult area to target.

For the arms and other body areas I suggest creams with retinol, peptides, or vitamin C. I would look into using a daily cream that contains some of those ingredients. If you want some product suggestions….let me know because I have a few!!!

But you also have to consider ----- are you getting enough estrogen?

Estrogen is important to reducing "early" wrinkling of the skin. You didn't say how old you are, but if you're over 50 you might want to consider getting bioidentical hormone replacement. That can help keep your skin looking younger.

Other Options: For the arms and upper arms - weight training by keeping the muscles build up helps tighten the skin and this helps keep the skin from wrinkling/hanging. I know this because I'm over 55 and I go to a boxing class on a regular basis and I noticed that the skin on my upper arms are firmer and smoother.

For the chest/neck area: I suggest facial exercises! They are cheap, easy and once you get it down...they work and you'll only have to do once or twice a week.

CREPEY SKIN ON ARMS
by: Anonymous

My Arms are so crepey, I am ashamed of them. It makes me look much older than I am. What can I do?

------------------------------------

Editor's Note:

Hello,

Thanks for your email regarding crepey skin. My experience with crepey skin mostly pertains to the face, neck and chest.

But, I believe the same principle applies to the rest of the skin on the body.

Here are some tips I've found that not only helped reduce crepey skin but also improved tone and texture:

1. Exfoliate: Exfoliating the skin helps remove dead skin cells and allows creams and moisturizers penetrate better. The more hydrated your skin is the better and plumper it will look.

For best results use 2 different exfoliating methods.

- Manual - like a baking soda scrub.

- Chemical - Alpha hydroxy acids like glycolic acid or lactic acid help "unglue" dead skin cells and allow them to be removed easier.

You can find body scrubs and moisturizing creams with alpha hydroxy acids in most large drug stores.

Alternate them each week. Once or twice a use the body scrub and the next two weeks of the month use the alpha hydroxy acid body cream.

Just make sure you don't over do it and irritate your skin.

2. Massage: When applying any moisturizer to your arms give them a good massage. Massaging and manipulating the skin helps improve texture.

3. Increase Muscle Mass: As we age our muscles begin to atrophy and over time shrink. When this happens the skin begins to sag due to a decrease in volume.

I know most people hate to exercises, but doing any type of arm exercises that include resistance training using light weights will not only help increase muscle mass but weight bearing exercises are also good for health bone density.

This is even true of the bones in the face....

(See this article about Facial Bone Loss)

I applied the anti-crepey skin tips listed above (exfoliate, massage, resistance training) to my face and neck. I saw incredible improvements in about 4 weeks.

I hope this information helped.

Natural cheek filler for hollow face and cheeks
by: Maryann

Thanks for your post. I too have very gaunt, hollow cheeks and even though I'm only in my 40s I think it makes me look much older.

I was looking for a natural way to fill out my cheek area so it looks like it did when I was younger.

I'm going to try the face exercises you suggested.

Thanks.

Hollowed Wrinkled Cheeks and Wrinkling Forearms and Chest
by: Anonymous

I am 74 and I look fairly good for my age. My body has been well kept. God has been good to me. My health is excellent. I have noticed that my arms are not as tight. So suggestions are welcome.

The skin around my chest is fair. I only notice the wrinkles if I cross my arms and do not pull back my shoulders to get stretched out. Legs are great except for a few veins. I think they call them spider veins around the ankles.

My biggest concern is my face, and that is: My checks have sunken maybe because I wear dentures.

I have deep lines in the hollow of my cheeks and this is driving me crazy. If I could get rid of them, my face would be very young looking. I have taken care of my self very well and God has been good to me. I would like suggestions

Hello and thank you for your email regarding hollowed cheeks, wrinkles and loose skin on chest and forearms.

From personal experience, I can tell that the best way to deal with hollowness, sagging facial features, thin papery skin, or lines and wrinkles is through facial exercises. Properly done, face exercises can help smooth, tone and firm the skin AND lift and build underlying muscles reducing that hollow look especially around the eyes and cheeks.

Why?

Because facial muscles are directly attached to the skin the health and tone of your facial muscles has a direct affect on the appearance of your skin too.


So when a facial muscle is toned, build up, and enlarged it will naturally lift and fill-up sagging skin. This helps get rid of hollowness and helps fill in lines and wrinkles giving the skin a smoother appearance and the face a more youthful look.


Also, a good face exercise program usually incorporates some light massaging of the skin. This light push/pull motion really helps improve your skin tone in several ways.

1. It helps bring circulation to the skin which increase nutrients to the skin cells.

2. It helps remove damaged older skin cells making way for newer healthier ones.

3. It helps improve skin tone and color.

4. It helps reduce that "papery-crepey" skin look.

5. Helps skin absorb moisture better because healthier skin is able to absorb moisturizers and creams much better than damaged skin.


Anti-aging creams are great and can help the skin look better, more hydrated. But, no cream in the world is going lift and firm-up underlying sagging muscles.

If you want a natural lift to your face/neck/chest and smoother skin - you'll have to resort to either cosmetic procedures or some type of facial exercise program. I've been doing them for about a 16 months and am thrilled.

Some of the most significant changes for me was my neck which was really starting to look bad. Here are some before and afer pictures of my neck.

In this picture you can see how my lower jowls firmed up nicely too.

These results took about 8 weeks. Keep in mind that full results can take up to a year. But it's fun watching improvements slowly taking place every couple of weeks. So if you do try facial exercises - please be sure to take pictures. Take a picture before and then about every 4-6 weeks.

Regarding loose skin on forearms, unfortunately, I don't really have much advice there....Sorry.

Hope this helps.
