Crepey Skin? Here's what you CAN do!

As we grow older, our skin can gradually become more loose and flaccid. Hormonal changes can also lead to drier skin and less natural oil production. But when skin begins to feel thin as paper, or like crepe it typically can be traced to sun damage. Over time, exposure to the sun breaks down elastin, the fibers in your skin that allow it to stretch and return to its normal position.

Here’s what you CAN do!
 
Stick to the shade ⛅️ The most important thing is to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Also, protect your skin when you’re in the sun.
 
Make skin hydration a priority. Keeping skin well-hydrated with a good moisturizer helps prevent injury that creates or worsens crepiness.
 
Use an Exfoliator 2 X a week to loosen dead skin cells which will help speed up cell turnover.
Use a Gua Sha Tool with Renu Luxury Face Oil, to help increase circulation and lymphatic flow. Because you are stimulating blood circulation, which increases the amount of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, overall, it can improve skin health, and help stimulate or strengthen elastin production.
 
Pay attention to ingredients. Look for moisturizers that contain lubricating and plumping ingredients and Fatty Acids and emollients like Shea Butters, Coconut Oil and products that have a high concentration of the best ingredient for building up dry, crepey skin: hyaluronic acid. Vitamin C in particular is beneficial for skin health because it plays a role in collagen production, as well as Retinol which help restore skins elasticity.
 
Check our Renu products which have you covered when it comes to products with nutrient-rich ingredients and fatty acids that will help stave off Crepey Skin! Using good skin care can help even the crepiest skin just look better! And remember don't forget to use your products on your neck and décolletage, where Crepey skin can first appear!
