What Is Crepey Skin?

Crepey skin is a term that refers to the appearance of very thin, fragile, and finely wrinkled skin that resembles crepe paper. In some cases, it can also be loose or saggy. Crepey skin can occur anywhere on the body, but most commonly appears under the eyes, on the inner side of the upper arm, and above the knees.

What Causes Crepey Skin?

The primary cause of crepey skin is sun damage, which causes the collagen and elastin that ordinarily keep skin supple and firm to break down at a faster rate.

Aging is another factor, collagen production naturally ceases in the 20s and 30s, which can lead to the onset of crepiness if not prevented. Weight fluctuations can also contribute to this common concern.
