What is Keratosis Pilaris?
"Keratosis Pilaris is a condition that develops when the skin produces too much of a protein called Keratin, which blocks the hair follicles and causes bumps to develop. These bumps can be on the arms, thighs, buttocks and cheeks. The bumps usually do not hurt or itch, but can be white and red in color."
Oh, and guess what guys, I have this EVERYWHERE! I actually did not get it on my cheeks until I was pregnant, and well....looks like it's here to stay!
I always envied girls who could wear those cute little bikini bottoms that show just a tiny bit of the toosh....yanoo, you just wanna go over there and pinch it and say "YAS GURRLL!"
I was/still am too self conscious to wear certain clothing, sleeveless shirts being the big one. My arms have tiny red bumps all over them, accompanied with dry skin, scabs (i know, ew), and uneven skin tone. I remember in Junior High when, for the first time ever, a boy put his arm around me and all I could think of was him feeling the bumps on my arm! A time that is supposed to be full of rainbows, butterflies, and cooties, all I could think about was my skin!
Um, Amazing. Right?! What is even more incredible is how SOFT my skin is! There are still very small bumps along my skin that haven't gone away completely, but my skin feels incredibly soft and smooth!
1. Exfoliating: I use the exfoliating gloves that you can buy just about anywhere! They are perfect for removing dead skin and allowing my skin to breathe!
2. Face to Face Spa Acne Control Serum: This is a medical grade acne serum, and a little goes a long way! The active ingredient in this serum is Benzoyl Peroxide and is "The worlds first non-irritating form." I apply this to my freshly cleaned and exfoliated arms (can also be used on face) and let it absorb before moving on to the next step!
3. ZO Skin Health Oraser Body Emulsion Plus: I have talked about this in a previous post regarding my Keratosis Pilaris. This stuff makes a HUGE difference! This product "Effectively delivers improvement in the quality, smoothness and overall health of the skin on your body. Excellent for dry, dull skin and uneven skin tone" < That right there is speaking the TRUTH! This stuff REALLY WORKS! My arms feel completely hydrated after using this product!
**Disclaimer** I have only been using this combo for 4 days! How crazy is that?! I was totally going to do a completely different post for you guys until I started seeing these insanely fast results! I can't wait to see what this does for my KP the longer I use it!
If you have struggled with KP, please comment below or send me an email! I would love to walk this journey with you!
