Combat KP (Keratosis Pilaris)

Combat KP (Keratosis Pilaris)

Have you ever felt those annoying red and rough little lumps and bumps on your skin that resemble goosebumps and had the urge to scrub them off? Let’s talk about it - it may be the common skin condition Keratosis Polaris aka chicken skin or strawberry legs. Roughly (pun intended) 50% to 80% of teenagers and 40% of adults will suffer with it at some point during their lives

Simply put, it is a blockage of hair follicles due to a buildup of keratin - a structural protein that helps form hairs, nails and your skins outer layer. This creates tiny red bumps on the surface of the skin leaving it feeling dry and rough. It is most common on the upper/back of arms, thighs and booty but can appear anywhere on the body. Although the etiology is unclear, it is associated with genetics, age, hormones, dry skin conditions (such as eczema), asthma, allergies and obesity.

Some ingredients to look for when trying to treat KP are:

  • Salicylic Acid
  • Lactic Acid
  • Aloe Vera
  • Shea Butter
  • Hyaluronic Acid

These help to exfoliate, hydrate, smooth & soothe the skin as well as reduce redness & inflammation, improving the overall appearance and feel of the skin.

Try our KP Kit - this combo contains essential ingredients to help combat KP:
Our Clarifying Booty Cleanser will give a gentle exfoliation and help to smooth and soothe the skin, reducing redness and inflammation. Hello even skin tone and texture!
Applying our Firming Booty Lotion afterwards will help to hydrate and soften the skin. As KP dries out the skin, moisturising is a must for controlling it. 

Here's a couple more hot tips; don't scratch or pick at it and avoid using harsh physical exfoliants and drying soaps as these can aggravate it. Consistency is also key when caring for any skin condition, those who suffer with KP know how persistent and pesky it is!
