It was not until my grandmother reached the age of 62 years when she started asking what the treatment for "crepey" skin is.

What is crepey skin?

Crepey skin is an ugly consequence of aging. People of more advanced age are prone to developing this condition. It is largely because of the natural aging process. This does not mean, however, that you cannot do anything to minimize or prevent crepey skin from developing later. Let us find out how this develops first.

Our skin is an amazing natural production line. It is the largest organ in the body and it serves as our first line of defense. It is constantly exposed to varying environmental factors, substances and organisms every single day.

In order to perform its functions well, the skin layer contains different mechanisms and rejuvenating processes to help heal and renew itself. This is aimed at maintaining optimal performance.

The skin contains collagen bundles, which are combination of collagen and elastin molecules. Collagen and elastin are naturally produced protein types responsible in providing strength and elasticity of the skin surface. Our skin alone can produce and replenish its own collagen and elastin mass.

As we advance in age, however, the body can no longer optimally regenerate to replace these dying and damaged proteins. This consequently leads to the gradual reduction in collagen bundle content beneath the skin layers. When this happens, the skin surface starts to sag, becomes loose and eventually develops what we called "crepey" skin texture.

Crepey skin is a loose fold and wrinkle found usually below our neck, arms and sometimes in our legs. It can also be found in many other parts of the body mostly exposed particularly to the sun.

As I had mentioned earlier, crepey skin is caused by the substantial loses in the collagen bundle content beneath your skin. In addition, since our body alone can replenish its own supply of collagen and elastin, all we need to do is to help our body attain maximal regeneration performance.

Dermal fillers, laser surgery and a lot other procedures, even if not very invasive, do not provide a lasting treatment for such problematic skin conditions. Most of them require repeated sessions, which make them more expensive. Truth to tell, there are various skin care products available in the market that help you regain firm and smooth skin.

Look out for these natural substances

These products are actually made of natural essential substance. You probably have heard a lot about Cynergy TK and Hyaluronic acid and their effectiveness.

Cynergy TK is a vitamin-like substance taken from the wool of the specific breed of sheep raised in New Zealand. This substance is known to help the body boost collagen production.

Hyaluronic acid acts as glue that binds together collagen and elastin molecules. It is richly found in Phytessence Wakame, exotic kelp found only in Japan Sea. Wakame is also rich in anti-oxidants and other essential micronutrients that help the skin rejuvenate itself. Many tests had been conducted showing Phytessence Wakame as an effective treatment to crepey skin.

Treating crepey skin is not difficult as long as you understand how it develops. Try using products containing these natural substances. You will surely find your skin getting smoother and more great looking too!
