Crepey skin is the by-product of thinning skin, which is a byproduct of collagen loss which is a byproduct of aging.
As we age we lose collagen and the skin starts to thin. As time passes our skin becomes dry and starts to collapse in on itself leading to lines, wrinkles. More collage is lost which leads to more thinning of the skin till eventually the skin starts to crumble, lose elasticity and the ability to bounce back.

Glycolic acid is a well known deep exfoliating agent which literally digests the outer layer of your dead skin, revealing new, fresh glowing, younger looking skin. Glycolic acids are also know to brighten up skin tone, smooth out lines and wrinkles, minimize appearance of crepey skin, erase dark spots and acne scarring.

With continued use, your skin smooths out, appears firmer, lines and wrinkles less apparent, dark spots seem to disappear, pore size appears to have shrunk, sun damage and any left over acne pitting is much less visible.

9. Are the results permanent?
No. However, with continued use maintaining, and in some cases, improving your results are possible.
10. Will I get the same results as in the pictures?
No. Every person is different and responds to the beauty corrective treatments in their own way.
11. Do I need a moisturizer?
ReNuture Crepey Skin Corrective Beauty Treatments contain naturally moisturizing and hydrating properties. However, since the ReNuture Crepey Skin FX collections contains glycolic acid which in turn causes the skin to exfoliate, some people may find they need more moisture. Listen to your skin. If it feels dry, apply moisture. Either before or on top of your treatment.
12. Why do I need to use sunscreen?
ReNuture Crepey Skin FX Corrective Beauty Treatments deeply exfoliate, revealing new, fresh young skin. This skin is brand new baby fresh skin, that has never seen the light of day. It has no defenses.
Would you let a brand new baby go out in the sun?
The FDA has required a "sunburn alert" on all products containing this ingredient.
13. After a week or so of using the Crepey Skin Body FX, why does my bath water look dirty?
What you see is the layer upon layer of dead skin residue in the bathtub. Old, dry, skin, that is being lifted up by the water and, in some cases, the use of a wash cloth, which is manually helping along with the exfoliation process.
14. I noticed about after a week of use, if I touch or rub my legs, arms or face, there seems to be a residue. Am I rubbing off the product?
NO! You are encouraging the exfoliating process. That is dead skin your are rubbing off with a slight amount of product. I discovered this too! I always help along my exfoliation because sometimes the dead surface skin does not want to let go. You may also try using a wash cloth, sugar/salt scrub or loofah in the bath tub.
