What is Crepey Skin?
Crepey skin happens when your skin looks wrinkled and thin. Although the misconception is that crepey skin is contributed to old age, this isn’t always the case. While it’s more common in older people, it usually starts for those in their 40s. A common cause of crepey skin is ultraviolet (UV) radiation through the sun or the use of tanning beds, or loss of skin collagen.
The UV radiation breaks down the elastin fibers in the skin, which doesn’t allow the skin to stretch and return to its normal position.
Common Problem Areas
Crepey skin is commonly noticed in your arms, neck, shoulders, back, chest, elbows, knees, and hands. Unlike wrinkles prone to areas of the body with repeated motion, such as your eyes and mouth, Crepey skin problem areas are due to no longer having elasticity that allows the skin to return to its normal position.
