Best moisturizer for dry crepey skin|Indulge Salon York Pa
Dry crepey skin?
Hugged grandma lately? Skin loose and see through? . The translucent sheer paper thin skin reminds you of crepe paper. That is why it’s described as dry crepey skin. It does tear easily and our older women and men are self concious of their thin, see through skin, therefore; they camoflage by wearing long sleeves.
Crepey skin in our 40’s?
When we are younger, we moisturize with creams and lotions. As we age, we are more concerned about whether we have the potential of falling taking a step out of bed. How do I know that? I asked my clients what their greatest fear was. It wasn’t dry skin, it was the fear of falling. Older people have lost the confidence to once do what they used to do no matter if their mind is sharp as a tack. The last think they are thinking about is their dry crepe skin.
3 best ways to prevent crepey skin
Skin loses elasticity as we age because of dehydration and other factors. There’s no way to completely avoid crepey skin, but there are a few ways to delay it.
- Stick to the shade. The most important thing to do, says Dr. Kassouf is to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Also, protect your skin when you’re in the sun with a hydrating sun skin.
- Make skin hydration a priority. Keeping skin well-hydrated with a good moisturizer helps prevent injury that creates or worsens crepiness.
- Pay attention to ingredients. Make sure your moisturizer contains alpha or beta hydroxy acids, such as salicylic acid, lactic acid or glycolic acid. These products lubricate and plump the skin, helping reduce that crepey appearance, Dermatologist, Dr. Amy Kassouf says. We persoally recommend our Indulge Pure Originals oatmeal soap that is gentle enough to exfoliate plus moisturizing attributes such as goats milk that still cleanses without the dryness.
As Dr. Amy Kassouf says, they were able to trace most of the crepey results from sun damage from the early 20’s, 30’s. As we age we lose the elastic and collagen required to help our skin “snap back” now it just lays loose and crepey.
Older skin gets dry, flaky kind of like a sun burn that is peeling, only it’s DRY SKIN. If they live alone, it’s difficult to wash their backs to exfoliate on their own. Using a dry brush on skin is essential to slough off the dry flakes daily. Although the skin is frail, thin and sensitive, try not to brush to hard but certainly make sure you exfoliate with a gentle body scrub, gommage or exfoliating soap such as Indulge Pure Originals Oatmeal soap. $8.50 for 3.5 oz soap that gently exfoliates without tearing up the skin.
This particular soap smells wonderful. It’s created with natural oatmeal, almond oil, goats milk that moisturizes the skin keeping it supple. As I stated in the beginning, crepey skin can tear and is fragile. Once the skin tears, infection can set in, it can be bluish like a bruise. Keeping the skin hydrated is a priority to looking and feeling better and to prevent infection.
