Keratosis Pilaris Home Remedy. Works Great!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Keratosis Pilaris Definition:
Keratosis pilaris (KP, also follicular keratosis, lichen pilaris or chicken skin) is a common, autosomal dominant, genetic follicular condition that is manifested by the appearance of rough, slightly red, bumps on the skin. It most often appears on the back and outer sides of the arm (though the forearm can also be affected), and can also occur on the thighs, hands, and tops of legs, sides, buttocks, or any body part except glabrous skin (like the palms or soles of feet).[1] Often the lesions will appear on the face, which may be mistaken for acne.

I had been using that KP Duty from DermaDoctor. It not only costs a fortune (the Trio costs over $120), but it is also full of chemicals.

Aqua (Water), Polyethylene, Glycolic Acid, Ammonium Glycolate, Sorbitol, Hexyl Laurate, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Lactic Acid, Dimethicone, Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Glucoside, Salix Nigra (Willow) Bark Extract, Camellia Oleifera (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Algae Extract, Azelaic Acid, Dehydroxanthan Gum, Methylparaben, Propylparaben

So, I started Googling. lol I've found an even better solution. Used it for two days and the "chicken bumps" are pretty much gone!

Here's my recipe for a Brown Sugar Scrub. It so simple!

1/3 cup DARK brown sugar
1/3 cup coconut oil
2 TBSP coarse sea salt.

Just melt the oil and stir in the sugar and salt. You could liven it up with some vanilla for fragrance or whatever....

Get in the shower and scrub your arms (or wherever. lol). When you get out of the shower make sure you moisturize the area well. I used thick shea body butter, because that's what I have on hand. But any type of paraben free moisturizer will work, so will coconut oil.
