One question constantly stumped me on internet quizzes that are designed to help beauty brands recommend products for us: Is your skin dry, oily, or normal? It’s even more confusing when the word “dehydrated” is tossed into the equation. Aren’t dry and dehydrated skin the same thing?
Determined to finally get the facts, I learned they’re actually two distinct skin issues, although most of us incorrectly think they’re the same. And, with winter waiting in the wings to hit your skin with harsh winds outside, and dry air inside, knowing the difference will help keep it soft, supple and sensual.
I’m talking about the skin all over your body, not just your face. Cracked – even bleeding – skin on the elbows, arms, knees, and legs isn’t just unattractive. It’s downright uncomfortable.
Crepe Erase has been saving my skin for six years, focusing on the 95 percent of the skin most brands ignore. It has the same high-quality ingredients we apply to our face, but specifically for our body. And that’s a very good thing. More on Crepe Erase, my skin savior, in a moment..
First, a little lesson on dry versus dehydrated skin
Dry skin is a skin type. It lacks oil, so it can’t hold the moisture it needs to stay plump and hydrated. Dry skin often feels flaky, bumpy, and itchy. Some of us are born with it, but cold or dry climates, certain medical treatments, super hot showers, and aging can cause it.
Dehydrated skin is a skin condition. Its uppermost layer lacks water, which is necessary for plumpness and suppleness. Dehydrated skin often feels tight, dull and irritated, and has fine lines and wrinkles.
During the winter, dry air created by cold temperatures and low humidity, draws moisture away from the skin, even from young skin.
All skin needs oil moisture and water moisture to function well, and look and feel great. Unfortunately, both decrease with each passing year – which is why our skin begins to look washed out and less youthful.
Crepe Erase® has all the essential ingredients to replenish the oil and water moisture our skin needs, from our faces to our feet.
The hero ingredient powering Crépe Erase Advanced is TruFirm® Complex, an exclusive blend that includes three plant extracts to help reinforce our skin’s netting. This makes skin appear tighter and firmer, and helps it look like it did when we were younger. Crépe Erase Advanced also contains nine Super Hydrators, including coconut oil, cocoa butter, olive oil, squalane, grapeseed oil, Vitamin E and a trio of glycerides. It delivers up to 72 hours of intense hydration and skin barrier protection to dry, crepey skin. Quick absorbing without leaving a greasy residue, the light and airy moisture-rich formula works to visibly smooth and renew the skin.

In the shower, I use silky Body Smoothing Pre-Treatment with TruFirm® and gentle exfoliators to lift away dead, rough surface cells and make my skin look smoother and more radiant. The lovely, fresh citrus scent is a bonus! It’s also comes fragrance free.
Shower over, I massage Advanced Body Repair Treatment with TruFirm® into the crepey skin around my neck, chest, arms and legs. Just like its name says, this lightly whipped formula restores firmer, healthier-looking skin all over my body. Absorbs quickly and isn’t one bit greasy.
My neck gets extra loving care with Ultra-Smoothing Neck Repair, blended with Encapsulated Retinol and Sodium Hyaluronate, a pair of potent ingredients for aging skin. Its beautifying benefits include a reduction in the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improved skin color, and lighter age spots.
Before going to bed, I apply a thin layer of deeply hydrating Overnight Facial Plumping Treatment, which visibly plumps and smooths as I sleep. Skin penetration levels rise at night, so skin care products work more efficiently. The skin also produces less sebum at night, and moisturizing helps keep it hydrated.
A duo of other facial formulas – Advanced Refining Facial Scrub with TruFirm® and Advanced Restorative Facial Treatment, gently removes rough, dead skin cells; visibly plumps, smoothes and firms, and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
