The Best Skincare Products For Your Arms: How to tighten, soften, and treat crepey skin

As we age, we spend a lot of time taking care of our faces, necks, and eyes, often overlooking another essential part of us. The part that reaches out to help others; the part that hugs the ones we love.

Yes, we are talking about our arms. So why don’t we care for them the way we often should? Our anti-aging skincare serums and creams are the best care for your arms (and all-over) to help soften, tighten, and treat the signs of aging. In this article, we will review how to tighten the skin on your arms and how to slow down the signs of aging that first appear on the part of you that cares for others.


Loss of collagen results in compromised resiliency and increased fragility of the skin. Crepey skin on arms or thin skin that has lost elasticity is a normal part of aging. As we grow more mature, so does our skin. We can head off those changes with the skincare we choose for ourselves.

Consider switching your drugstore brands with quality anti-aging skincare brands that are committed to the rejuvenation of our skin’s appearance and firmness; brands like Neocutis, iS Clinical, Skinmedica, Obagi, and EltaMD.

After all, our skin does so much for us—protecting us and caring for others—shouldn't we do the same?


Making a morning and evening ritual of applying targeted skincare products to your arms will improve lost elasticity. As we age, the skin on our arms becomes crepey in appearance, losing the resiliency of youth. But much of the skin's smooth appearance and tightening of the skin on our arms can be achieved through a daily ritual of care.

Neocutis offers an essential line of defense against aging. Founded in Switzerland, their line of products focuses on healing and rejuvenating the skin to restore it to a more youthful appearance. Their NeoBody Restorative Cream is noncomedogenic, dermatologist-tested, free of color additives and fragrances, and not tested on animals. It's specifically formulated for the body with technology that activates natural collagen and restores smooth, youthful-looking skin. Spring and summer in sleeveless dresses are starting to look better already!

Another favorite of ours is SkinMedica's GlyPro Daily Firming Lotion. SkinMedica focuses its attention on advancing the science of skin rejuvenation, dedicating years of research to create innovative products. Appropriate for all skin types, GlyPro Daily enhances skin firmness and helps tone the firmness for a smooth, sleek look. It is perfect for helping reduce the appearance of crepey skin on your arms and elsewhere on your body.


We know that you have been told this time and time again, but it is critically important, so we will tell you again: wear sun protection. The best way to fend off further damage to our skin is to protect ourselves from the most damaging element in our surroundings—the sun. We encounter this every day, sometimes for hours at a time, and we should be adequately taking steps to enjoy the warmth without allowing for damage.

While creepy skin on our arms is a normal part of aging, the sun is one of the significant factors contributing to the speed and severity of the damage. So, in addition to taking targeted action to help reduce the signs of aging on your arms, you should also be using a high-quality sunscreen. Choosing a brand that both protects and nourishes your skin is the perfect pairing to the above.

We love a broad spectrum high SPF like the UltaMD UV Active SPF 50+. This fragrance-free, oil-free, paraben-free, sensitivity-free, and non-comedogenic formula offers powerful, comprehensive UVA and UVB protection.  And it does it all while remaining incredibly nourishing—perfect for use on your face and body. After a long day in the sun, we also enjoy a recovery serum that helps replenish the tender skin, like this skin recovery serum.


We know that there are a lot of choices out there and that muddling through them can be a challenge. But the two most important things to do to tighten the skin on your arms are:

  1. To use a premium product with proven results; Dermsilk quality skincare is the only way to ensure this.
  2. To use comprehensive protective sunscreen. 

Our curated collection includes only the best skincare for aging skin—true quality, luxurious lotions, serums, and more. Nothing watered down, repackaged, and sold… and no more crepey skin on our arms. That's an easy choice to make.
