WHAT IS KERATOSIS PILARIS
The bumps you see on your arms, legs and sometimes bum, are actually collections of the protein keratin that clogs the pores instead of flaking off with dead skin cells.
Because of the look of Keratosis Pilaris, the skin could feel rough and dry, or it could appear like having goosebumps.
Dermatologists are still not sure of what causes Keratosis pilaris but many studies show a correlation with vitamin A deficiency.
HOW CAN YOU TREAT KERATOSIS PILARIS
Exfoliating regularly helps your pores remain open and it avoids keratin plugs from forming. Don’t use a very coarse scrub that could cause micro-lesions. You can try using a loofah or a washcloth every day to achieve a gentle exfoliation under the shower
Use Body Soft Scrub once a week to soften your skin and to remove dead skin cells that could clog you’re your pores.
Chemical peelings are safer on the skin when used correctly and according to your skin types and condition. Choose chemical peelings containing ingredients like urea, AHAs, salicylic acid and glycolic acid.
Try 20D Even Complexion serum: glycolic acid peel perfect for face and body exfoliation and brightening.
Maintain your skin soft and nourished to help dead skin cells detach more easily: this will prevent pores from clogging.
