Smooth out crepey skin!

We get a substantial number of inquiries asking whether or not our products can help crepey skin. So let's take a look at what causes skin to develop a texture like crepe paper and break down the ways our products can help smooth it out. 
Crepey skin is caused by a loss of elastin. Elastin is a protein whose main function is to allow tissues in your body (like your skin) to stretch out and shrink back. 
There are a few things that cause a loss of elastin and #1 is sun exposure. UV rays from the sun cause elastin to break down. Similarly, as we age our bodies produce less elastin, and less oils, leading to drier skin which exacerbates the crepe-like appearance. Other factors include, dehydration, rapid and/or significant weight loss and smoking. 
Our products can help the diminish crepey skin texture because the gentle exfoliation that removes the surface layer of dead skin cells literally smooths out the skin's surface. The moisturizing cleansing keeps skin hydrated and the less dry the skin is the less crepey it looks. Finally, anti-oxidants are always a good thing, so opt for one of our products with a high antioxidant content like Green Tea, Pomegranate, Chocolate  or Blueberry. If you have crepey skin on your face, neck or chest choose a Facial like Vitamin C, Green Tea or Pomegranate.
To prevent crepey skin texture, wear sunscreen daily and avoid sun exposure when you can. Seriously. Tan now and expect to get crepey later. It's also important to drink plenty of water and eat a healthy diet with plenty of anti-oxidant rich fruits and veggies. 
Stay Smooth!
