WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT THE CREPEY SKIN ON MY UP­PER ARMS?

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - STYLE, LOVE, LIFE, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR -

Women of­ten com­plain to me about this and there are three ways to tackle it: cover up, im­prove the ap­pear­ance of the skin and tone up.

If, like me, your body tem­per­a­ture tends to fluc­tu­ate, capes are in­valu­able as an al­ter­na­tive to jack­ets. Zara’s ver­sion en­sures you keep cool while cov­er­ing up. Also con­sider lay­er­ing a top or shirt be­low a sleeve­less dress, but cut the top’s neck­line so that when you wear the two pieces to­gether only the sleeves are vis­i­ble un­der the dress. A pair of lace or opaque Cami Con­fi­den­tial ‘sleeves’, in a shade that matches your sleeve­less dress, is an­other op­tion.

Mas­sage sag­ging skin on your arms with the Hayo’u Beauty Re­storer (€40, hay­oumethod.com), a jade tool that boosts cir­cu­la­tion. Also use a mi­cronee­dle roller to prick the skin and en­cour­age it to pro­duce more col­la­gen. Next ap­ply a prod­uct con­tain­ing PHA (poly­hy­droxy acid), such as Gar­den of Wis­dom PHA Plus Serum, to ex­fo­li­ate. Fi­nally, try tri­ceps dips at home. I squat with my back and bot­tom against the side of the bath with my hands on the rim, my el­bows be­hind me, and use my arms to push my­self up. I do two sets of 20.
