What Is Crepey Skin?
Sacramento, CA dermatologist Suzanne Kilmer, MD explains that “Skin that has turned crepey is thin, loose and flaccid with a certain degree of sagging”—particularly in comparison to the plump thickness of the younger skin.

New York dermatologist Macrene Alexiades, MD compares it to “a piece of tissue paper or a crêpe” (hence the phrase ‘crepey skin’). It’s “the thinning of the dermis and epidermis that make skin” take on a thin, crinkly texture.

Crepey skin is different from wrinkles in that wrinkles are often caused by expressions or repeated motions, dry skin and gravity while Crepey skin is primarily caused by skin thinness.

Dr. Alexiades explains that “Over time, the subtle creases and pores in the skin slowly become exaggerated as the breakdown of collagen and elastin becomes more evident. From there, skin folds accumulate, and skin starts to thin out.”

What Causes Crepey Skin?
Once you reach your 40s, skin thinning accelerates over the course of months or years. The transformation occurs as the body slows down its production of elastin and collagen, the proteins that allow skin to stretch and contract. And while aging skin is inevitable, there are a few factors that can cause a skin to become prematurely crepey: weight gain, weight loss, weight fluctuations, sun damage, cigarette smoke, and a diet high in sugar.

How to Prevent or Minimize Your Chances of Crepey Skin
Sure, everyone knows the basics such as getting adequate sleep, drinking plenty of water, reducing stress, and avoiding negative lifestyle factors like alcohol and cigarettes. But, what else can you do to minimize premature aging and the resultant crepey skin?

1. Eat a diet low in sugar and processed foods: Eating lots of vegetables, fruits, lean meats, and omega–3 fats can help slow glycation—the chemical reaction that causes your skin to become less supple.

2. Drink green tea: Superstar multitasker green tea has been proven to significantly interfere with the glycation process while stimulating collagen creation—so if you're drinking it regularly, you're already protecting your skin.

3. Wear a non-toxic sunscreen: Protect your skin from sunburn and sun damage.  Sunshine is healthy for the body but it is important not to burn or have prolonged exposure.

4. Exfoliate: Rid skin of dead skin cells, allowing new plumper cells to the surface.

5. Cleanse using only non-drying soaps that are sulfate free and non-toxic.

6. Moisturize your skin: Hydrate skin while repairing collagen and elastin.

I'm sure you've heard mainstream medicine's warnings about the sun: It's dangerous and causes cancer.
But as usual, they've got it all wrong.
Avoiding the sun can actually increase your risk of suffering from skin cancer.
Respected British medical journal The Lancet reported way back in 2004:
'It has long been realized that indoor workers have an increased risk for melanoma, compared with those who work outdoors, indicating ultraviolet radiation is in some way protective against this cancer'.1
Researchers have also found people who avoid the sun die younger than those who get regular sun exposure.2
In fact, the sun protects against cancer, promotes heart health and supports a positive mood that comes from a healthy brain.
And it also keeps you young, because the sun has a direct impact on the health of your telomeres — the protective caps at the ends of your chromosomes that act kind of like biological clocks that control the age of your cells.
When the sun's UVB rays reach your skin, your body starts to produce vitamin D. This tells your body to make more telomerase, the enzyme you need to maintain and rebuild your telomeres.
When you don't produce enough telomerase, your telomeres shorten and fray each time your cells replicate… and the more you age.
That's not all. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a whole host of other serious health problems. 
To Your Good Health,
