Crepey skin… if you’re “a woman of a certain age,” you know what I am talking about! And according to WebMD, no one is immune, “Wrinkles and sagging or crepey skin naturally appear as your body ages. Skin loses its ability to produce elastin and collagen, which contribute to your skin’s elasticity and firmness.”
The causes of crepey skin go far beyond just simple aging, however. Additional contributors include hormonal changes, dehydration, weight loss, tobacco use, prolonged or excessive exposure to sunlight, and even stress.
Addressing the care of crepey skin is about more than just mere aesthetics, say the experts at Healthline, “Thin skin is skin that tears, bruises, or breaks easily. Thin skin is sometimes called thinning skin or fragile skin.”
But there are steps you can take to make skin firmer, smoother and less obviously crepey. One product that I have recently discovered is Crepe Erase Advanced Overnight Plumping Facial Treatment. This is part of the Crepe Erase product line, most famously promoted by devotees Jane Seymour and Kate Walsh.
Crepe Erase was launched in 2015 and, in addition to the Advanced Overnight Plumping Facial Treatment, includes an entire line of products with a plant-derived extract blend it calls TruFirm Complex. TruFirm Complex contains encapsulated retinol and patented dual peptides to support skin elasticity and collagen production. These ingredients protect skin’s essential structure and target the side effects of aging and UV damage.
I have tried over a dozen different products by Crepe Erase and, while all effective, the Advanced Overnight Plumping Facial Treatment is by far my favorite. This is a deeply hydrating facial cream that you apply before bed, which visibly plumps and smooths as you sleep. (How much easier could it be?!) You wake in the morning with visibly plumper skin, less fine lines, and a softer, smoothly complexion that lasts all day long.
This cream can be used just a few times a week, or nightly. (Since my skin is consistently so dry, I do use it nightly.)
Please note, as with all products, if you have highly sensitive skin, please do a patch test first. And, because this product contains retinol, sun sensitivity may be a concern. So, don’t skip the sunblock (even in winter!).
Crepe Erase and the Advanced Overnight Plumping Facial Treatment (1.7 fl oz / 50mL) is available for $54 or $45.90 if you subscribe.
