What is your biggest skin complaint? Are you self-conscious because of your complexion? As you grow older, are you noticing signs of aging? We all want our skin to look its best. Beautiful, smooth, youthful-looking skin is the goal! Today I want to talk about skin care solutions for women (and men!) with aging skin.
Of course, it is important to take care of your skin when you are in your teens and 20s. Oftentimes this is when people solidify their skincare routine. Wearing sunscreen, moisturizing properly, and using a retinoid in this time period can have a dramatic effect on slowing the signs of aging. Young women can have skin issues as well, such as acne and hormonal flare-ups. I’ve discussed in previous blogs how to establish a skin care routine and different tactics for taking care of acne.
I am going to focus on dark spots, wrinkles, and crepey skin. These skin care issues are extremely common as we age. Most people will see these signs of aging in their own skin at some point, either on their face, neck, hands, or chest. That doesn’t mean you have to live with them! There is treatment to reduce the appearance of these problems to give you a fuller, smoother, brighter complexion.
The Best Skin Care Solutions for Dark Spots, Wrinkles and Crepey Skin
While freckles are adorable, dark spots are not. Sometimes called age spots, these hyperpigmented sections of skin can crop up on your face, hands, arms, shoulder, or back. Wherever they pop up, they are a nuisance! Luckily there are skincare solutions to reduce their appearance.
The dark patches can range in color from light to dark brown and are a result of an oversecretion of melanin. We have melanin to thank for our skin’s pigment. While we have melanin to thank when we get a tan, we also can blame our dark spots on melanin.
What causes dark spots?
This overproduction of melanin can happen for several reasons. Some women get dark spots during pregnancy as a result of increased hormone levels. Many people who are frequently exposed to the sun or use tanning beds get dark spots. And lastly, as people age they are more likely to see dark spots appear. It is extremely common to develop hyperpigmentation on your face, arms, back, or hands as you age. Carefully watch your skin; while it’s important to wear sunscreen to prevent damage and hyperpigmentation, there are also skin care solutions once dark spots have already developed.
Wrinkles and Crepey Skin
Dark spots are one of the most popular complexion issues, followed by wrinkles and crepey skin. We all know what wrinkles are; they are the pesky folds in our skin that make us look older. Wrinkles often develop around our eyes, forehead, mouth, and neck. These folds make it harder to apply makeup smoothly and can cause confidence issues.
What causes wrinkles and crepey skin?
The wrinkling process, to some degree, happens to everyone. You’re not alone! As we grow older, our skin cells divide more slowly and the dermis (the skin’s inner layer) starts to thin. This begins to affect our skin’s basic structure and flexibility. As the years tick by, our complexion begins to lose its ability to retain moisture, while also making less sebum (oil). Skin gets damaged more easily and is slower to heal. All of these factors combine to speed the wrinkling process along.
The same factors that form wrinkles contribute to crepey skin. Dryness, inability to make oil, and lack of skin structure are all symptoms of crepey skin as well. Crepey skin distinguishes itself from wrinkles in that this condition tends to impact larger areas and it changes the texture and tone of the skin. For example, many women experience crepey skin on the inside of their upper arms. This skin is noticeably thinner and more fragile than normal. You might see it on the arms, back of hands, and under the eyes.
How can I get rid of them?
While all three of these conditions — dark spots, wrinkles, and crepey skin — are common, that doesn’t mean you have to live with them. There are skin care solutions available! While usually harmless, these skin issues are still an inconvenience and can detract from aesthetic beauty. Fortunately, there are safe and effective products you can use at home to banish those dark spots.

Step 1: Cleanser
It starts with HD Clean. This micro-exfoliating cleanser contains 2% salicylic acid and 1% moisturizing, antimicrobial coconut oil. Salicylic acid is commonly used to treat pimples, but it’s also an effective treatment dark spots. This powerful ingredient works by deeply penetrating pores and dissolving oil and debris. It loosens the very top layer of skin; when this layer peels away, it takes dead skin cells and buildup with it. In order to get rid of dark spots, it’s crucial to slough off dead skin cells and allow new ones to surface.
Step 2: Serum
The next step is HD Restore Glowing Skin Serum, a nourishing serum that has the finest ingredients targeted to brightening your skin while plumping and smoothing skin.

The final step is the HD Illuminate Mega-C Creme, an impressively effective treatment cream that is a must for reducing dark spots and treating wrinkles and crepey skin. The active ingredient is L-Ascorbic acid; the highly concentrated formula delivers a punch of the antioxidant Vitamin C. Vitamin C doesn’t lighten “normal” skin, but it does target hyper-pigmented skin to reverse prevent the appearance of age spots. Vitamin C is also a powerful aid in turning back the clock on other skin issues, including lines, crepey skin, wrinkles, and skin sagging. This specially formulated skin boosts collagen production for firmer skin while helping the skin build up it’s natural defenses against free radical damage and UV rays.
