Keratosis Pilaris Natural Remedy

If you've been dealing with those pesky bumps on your skin, you're not alone. Keratosis pilaris, often referred to as "chicken skin," is a common skin condition characterized by small, rough bumps that typically appear on the arms, thighs, buttocks, and sometimes on the face. In this blog post, we'll delve into what keratosis pilaris is, what causes it, and most importantly, how you can effectively treat it using natural methods.

Understanding Keratosis Pilaris: What Is It and What Causes It?

  • Buildup of keratin: Keratosis pilaris occurs when keratin, a protein that protects the skin, builds up and plugs hair follicles, leading to the formation of small, rough bumps.
  • Genetic factors: KP often runs in families, suggesting a genetic predisposition to the condition.
  • Dry skin: Dry skin can exacerbate keratosis pilaris by causing an accumulation of dead skin cells, which can block hair follicles.
  • Hormonal changes: KP may worsen during hormonal changes, such as puberty or pregnancy, due to fluctuations in hormone levels.

How To Treat Keratosis Pilaris?

One of the most effective ways to manage keratosis pilaris is through regular exfoliation. Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores, allowing for smoother, clearer skin. There are two main types of exfoliation: physical and chemical.

  • Physical Exfoliation: Physical exfoliation involves using abrasive materials or tools to manually slough off dead skin cells. For KP, we recommend our Plant Silk Exfoliating Glove, they help slough off the buildup of dead skin cells and keratin plugs that contribute to the formation of KP bumps. The textured surface of the glove gently buffs away these rough, dry patches, revealing smoother skin underneath. Additionally, the friction generated during exfoliation can help to stimulate blood circulation and promote cell turnover, which can further aid in reducing the appearance of KP bumps over time. What's crazy about this glove is that you actually see the dead skin come off so you know it's 100% doing it's job.

  • Chemical Exfoliation: Chemical exfoliation, on the other hand, involves the use of ingredients like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) or beta hydroxy acids (BHAs) to dissolve dead skin cells and unclog pores. Our Glow Body Wash with glycolic acid is a fantastic option for chemical exfoliation, as glycolic acid helps to exfoliate the skin's surface and breaks down your keratosis pilaris bumps to leave your skin smoother, clearer and more even-toned. Incorporating this body wash into your skincare routine can help improve the appearance of KP over time.

What Else Can I Do To Treat It?

In addition to exfoliation, moisturization plays a crucial role in managing keratosis pilaris. Keeping the skin hydrated helps to prevent dryness and irritation, which can exacerbate KP symptoms. Our Herb-Infused Healing Oil is specially formulated to nourish and hydrate the skin, with a blend of healing herbs and botanical oils that help to soothe inflammation and promote skin regeneration. Using our healing oil regularly can help keep your skin soft, smooth, and hydrated, reducing the appearance of KP bumps and improving overall skin texture.

Managing keratosis pilaris naturally requires a multi-faceted approach that includes regular exfoliation, moisturization, and gentle skincare. By incorporating our Plant Silk Exfoliating Glove, Glow Body Wash with glycolic acid, and Herb-Infused Healing Oil into your skincare routine, you can effectively treat KP and achieve smoother, healthier-looking skin. Say goodbye to chicken skin and hello to confidence with our natural KP solutions!
