Yes, you can definitely get crepe skin on your legs – although first it is important to distinguish it from Cellulite. “Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue under the skin,” King says. This can appear faintly, rather than wrinkled.
“The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to be caused by an interaction between the connective tissue in the layer that lies just below the surface of the skin and the layer of fat just below,” King explains.
Cellulite can be hereditary, which means you can get it no matter what you use on your skin, how old you are, and how much you weigh. Nice reminder, cellulite isn’t a bad thing. While it’s totally normal to feel insecure about it—thanks to the sadly great culture of perfectionism around body image and photoshop—cellulite is extremely common, especially for women.
Now, on the other hand, crepey skin can be prevented to some extent through skincare. Like cellulite, there’s nothing wrong with having crepey skin, and everyone will eventually get it because it’s a normal part of skin aging. But if you want to delay the process, there are a few things you can do – more on that in a bit.
