How to Reduce the Appearance of Crepey Skin

1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize: Hydrating and moisturizing target creping in numerous ways. U.S. Dermatology Partners says dry skin wrinkles. Additionally, “the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays are very destructive and can break down collagen and elastin in the skin.”

2. Treat your skin at night: Address skin issues like creping at night. “During the day, your skin protects against sun damage or oxidation, but at night, it renews new skin cells and cycles oxygen and nutrients.”

3. Wash your face: “No matter your skin concern, but for those with crepey skin, it's essential as it sets the stage for the entirety of your crepe-combatting regimen.” Washing your face twice a day—in the morning after a night of skin-boosting nutrients and before bedtime after a day of moisturizing.

4. Know your ingredients: Use products with peptides, vitamin C, and retinols every night to fix, reverse, and smooth out the look of crepiness. Every one of these parts does its own thing.

5. Use makeup (but not too much): Harth warns that less is more when it comes to hiding crepey skin. Your aim? "A little color to even out the skin tone and moisturizer to make it smooth."

6. Eat healthy: An efficient skincare routine requires a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet. Cleveland Clinic suggests fruit, vegetables, nutritious grains, and legumes to “nourish your skin from the inside out.”
