For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had rough, bumpy, splotchy patches of skin on the backs of my arms and all over my legs (mostly on my thighs and calves). Up until recently I had no clue what it was and honestly became so used to it I just came to accept it. After reading a magazine article, I figured out that I have what is called keratosis pilaris (KP) or “chicken skin”. I immediately started trying products but none worked well for me up until I found this gem:
It has worked wonders for my skin! Now, it can be a bit painful the first few uses but trust me the pain is worth the gain. It is important to read and follow the instructions closely, though, in order for it work properly. Since my skin is a bit on the sensitive side, I use it only once a week but now I am at the point where I am “maintaining” so it doesn’t take long at all! I follow it up with fragrance free lotion.
My confidence is at an all-time high now that I can wear short sleeves and shorts without anxiety! Does anyone else suffer from this? If so, what product(s) do you use?
