Do you have rough and bumpy skin? Or know someone who does? Keratosis Pilaris is annoying but harmless skin condition. Keratosis pilaris is caused by a buildup of keratin, the protein that protects skin from infections and other harmful things. It causes small, hard bumps that may make your skin feel like sandpaper and the bumps are often light-colored. They usually appear on your upper arms, thighs, and buttocks, sometimes with redness or swelling. [Information from WebMD]
I've had KP for as long as I can remember. I've tried a number of creams, lotions and potions. Some have worked better than others and some were too expensive to maintain a routine. I've also been on a clean sweep trying to keep all my products as clean and safe as possible. I started using the Citrus Mimosa Body Lotion from Beautycounter just as an after shower lotion alternative. My keratosis pilaris is mostly concentrated on my arms and legs and I noticed a difference after using the lotion for a month or so. I did a little more research on Beautycounter's products and keratosis pilaris and found that using the body butter along with the body lotion works even better!
My skin is looking and feeling better than it has in a long time! Beautycounter's body lotion and body butter work great for eczema and dry skin as well. It's also wonderful to know your a putting a safe and clean product on you and your family! #betterbeauty
Another thing to note is cutting out gluten [mostly] out of my diet has helped with my keratosis pilaris as well. A combination of a cleaner diet and cleaner products can do wonders for your skin and health!
