These keratosis pilaris treatments help give you smoother, softer skin.
Keratosis pilaris, also known as "chicken skin," is a common skin condition that affects approximately half of the world's population, and many don't even know they have it. Keratosis pilaris (KP) most often appears as rough, stippled, or bumpy skin on the backs of arms or thighs, although it can appear anywhere on the body. These bumps are often mistaken for breakouts, and are usually accompanied by mild itching. If you're one of the many who have keratosis pilaris, LovelySkin carries many potent and dermatologist-backed treatments that will help restore soft, smooth skin.
Keratosis pilaris is caused by a buildup of skin cells around hair follicles. When too many of these cells start to accumulate, they form hard bumps that clog pores, leading to skin that feels rough, bumpy and even scaly. To learn more, here are 5 Quick Facts About Keratosis Pilaris.
The key to controlling KP symptoms is regular, controlled exfoliation. There are many body exfoliators available, but the best products for keratosis pilaris contain ingredients like glycolic acid, which works to break down buildup and increase cell turnover to reveal fresh, healthy skin. Once you've introduced regular exfoliation into your routine, it's also important to follow with a moisturizing body lotion to help maintain and strengthen your skin's moisture barrier.
