What is Keratosis Pilaris?
Keratosis Pilaris, commonly referred to as KP, or "chicken skin", is a common skin condition that causes small, scaly bumps to appear on the skin where there are hair follicles. The bumps are extra keratin, which is a proteian that's part of the skin and hair. The bumps commonly appear on upper arms, thighs, chest, elbows, and your tush.
How to treat KP?
The best way to treat Keratosis Pilaris is with a routine involving exfoliating and hydrating your skin. Here is our recommended routine.
Step #1: Exfoliate
We created our natural scrubs to exfoliate away dead skin cells and small bumps, without drying out your skin. The scrubs are infused with rejuvenating oils to help rejuvenate and reveal healthier-looking skin. Our ultra-thin sugar based scrubs are gentle and effective. We recommend using them at least 3 times a week in the shower.
Step #2: Treat
Our treatment oils were formulated to tackle your skin challenges, everywhere. They will help soften the appearance of ingrown hairs, razor burn, and of course Keratosis Pilaris when used daily on skin and hair. For best results, apply an oil within the first two minutes of getting out of the shower.
Step #3: Repeat
Being consistent with your routine is the key step to treating Keratosis Pilaris or "chicken skin". It will take time, but your skin will thank you!
