I won a $50 gift certificate from EDS (thank you!) but since I am happy with my face and neck skin care and they don't sell Jenulence makeup on here, which is the mineral makeup I use, I thought I'd buy something for my arms since summer is coming.

Because all my life I concentrated my sunscreen on my face and neck leaving my arms exposed, I am paying the price. I am starting to get a thin crepey layer of skin on my forearms. No spots yet. What have you used that gave you better skin texture, aside from AHAs? AHAs make my arms feel soft but don't do much for appearance. I can skip fancy packaging, fragrance and exotic filler ingredients that do nothing. Just something effective is fine by me.

How about trying one of the Skin Biology copper peptide products? I find the BND cream to be fantastic for thickening and firming the skin on my chest area, and I think that others have tried either it or other similarly-acting body products with some success on crepey skin.

They take time to work, but are worth the wait.

I tried a couple of their lotions last year for a few months but didn't notice much of a difference. Admittedly, I wasn't as diligent because I hated the masking fragrance. I wonder if the percentage of peptides is lower than Skin Signals. The lotions have lots of other ingredients in them as well. However, I am wondering if I should buy more Skin Signals and LacSal since it's a freebie. I like what peptides do to my neck and face, although body skin is thicker so it may not work as well. Might be an interesting experiment using my normal protocol of one side of the body only to test. I might buy some more vitamin C for the other arm as a control. Have to think about this!

I was thinking vitamin C and for AHA, there is Lac-Hydrin 12% AHA

I have the LacHydrin but haven't been using it lately. I tend to use it in the summer when I wear short sleeves. All similar AHAs soften my skin but don't really affect appearance much so that's why I thought of vitamin C.

I almost bought a bottle of Vitamin C crystals at Trader Joe's for $10. I just couldn't bear the thought of wading through hundreds of pages of vitamin C recipes on here! I was thinking of vitamin c crystals and water. Period. Anyone know proportions? I have some 3 oz. empty plastic travel bottles I could use. Or would it degrade too quickly so I'd be better off mixing some up in a little cup and dipping my fingers into it and rubbing it all over after my shower?

The skin on my forearm and legs improved dramatically when I used Walgreens' brand Alpha Hydroxy cream daily. It's inexpensive enough to use on your body. I saw improvement after about two weeks of daily use. Now I use it about twice a week for "maintenance". HTH

DermaWand could help also
