Keratosis Pilaris

Do you have areas of rough, goose-bump-like skin on some parts of your body? It could be keratosis pilaris, a common skin condition affecting around 40% of the population. It's most commonly seen on the backs of arms and thighs, but can appear on other areas as well. While the name sounds intimidating, keratosis pilaris isn't dangerous. In fact, it rarely causes any itching or irritation - it's mainly a cosmetic concern.

Keratosis pilaris won't go away completely, but the appearance of your skin can be improved over time if you use the correct methods. You may have been trying to scrub your "chicken skin" away with pumice stones and harsh scrubs, but these treatments are usually not the best ways to address this condition. You're better off simply moisturizing with a cream containing alpha hydroxy acid (AHA).

Kiss My Face Peaches and Cream Moisturizer ($4.99) will moisturize dry areas of skin and help gently renew skin with natural AHA. This product is eco-friendly, affordable, and safe for daily use.

AmLactin Cream (around $25) is more expensive, but very effective for handling keratosis pilaris. AmLactin is the #1 dermatologist-recommended moisturizer for dry skin. It's deeply moisturizing, non-irritating, and works to gently slough off dry, rough skin and uncover soft and touchable skin.
