How To Treat the Keratosis Pilaris (aka Chicken Skin) On Your Arms

A painless, annoyance that for most people it usually clears up or goes away by the age of 30.

But alas, those pesky bumps cause rough, dry patches and sometimes it tends to get worse depending on the season. In some cases, according to the Mayo Clinic, it could be a genetic cause. 

"Keratosis pilaris results from the buildup of keratin — a hard protein that protects skin from harmful substances and infection. The keratin forms a scaly plug that blocks the opening of the hair follicle. Usually many plugs form, causing patches of rough, bumpy skin." according to mayoclinic.org

While there is no cure, there is something you can do to help remove the excess bumps and smooth out your skin to its former glory. 

The answer? Gentle exfoliation and moisturizing of the skin on your problem areas. If you're using a gentle product like our Moisturizing Exfoliators, you can safely use them every day and many people have reported seeing the best results from using this product exclusively.

"AN ALL-OVER BODY MUST-HAVE!

I have been using Rene’s extraordinary moisturizing exfoliators consistently for a few months now, and my skin has never been better. I have dry, sensitive skin along with keratosis pilaris on my arms, and using this lovely scrub in the shower every other day has almost completely cleared it up. I have tried maaaaany different lotions, scrubs, etc in the past but none have really made a difference. These are incredibly effective, smell amazing, and are super gentle. I love how versatile they are, too! They work amazingly well as a makeup remover and cleanser in one step, and all over your body for gentle exfoliation. I am definitely a customer for life!" - Anna, Olympia, WA

Moisturizing Exfoliators: contain sugar to gently sweep away dead skin cells which block lotion, cream or oils from fully absorbing into the skin, at the same the Organic Virgin Cold Pressed Coconut Oil absorbs deep into your skin, leaving you incredibly soft, smooth and with moisturized skin.

It's the perfect balance of exfoliation and moisturizing, not too much of either ingredient means your skin will feel the softest it's ever felt.

So if you're experiencing this symptom anywhere else on your body, the Moisturizing Exfoliators are perfectly safe to use anywhere you're experiencing this. In fact, my two and a half-year-old daughter has recently developed this symptom on her backside of her arms, and legs I use it to help smooth them out and soften her skin back to its baby-like softness.
