Keratosis Pilaris, also known as chicken skin bumps, is a common condition in which a protein in the skin called keratin forms hard plugs within hair follicles.
Symptoms include :
- small white or red bumps typically on the upper arms or thighs
- dry, rough and sometimes itchy skin in the areas with bumps
- worsening in the winter when humidity is low and skin tends to be drier
Best Treatments Include:
Cleanse – use a mild cleansing lotion to provide moisture and prevent dry, red irritations
Exfoliate – professional micro exfoliation treatments gently removes the outer layer of dead skin cells leaving a smoother texture
Moisturize – use moisturizer frequently and avoid any products that might dry the skin.
