Keratosis Pilaris is a common skincare condition that affects many people. Personally, I’ve struggled with it for as long as I can remember. However, in recent years I can honestly say that my skin looks noticeably different, and wanted to share what’s worked for me. I’ve created a video explaining all about my methods in how to treat Keratosis Pilaris. These are obviously personal but perhaps you might pick up an idea or two.
How to treat Keratosis Pilaris – my personal journey
What steps I mentioned in the video:
1. Incorporating Urea
Urea helps to moisturize and soften dry skin as well as to remove dead skin skills. I see a noticeable difference when I use an urea based product. Watch the video to see which CRAZY product I use which contains urea (and it works as well as higher end alternatives!)
I use the Milk Solutions Sugar scrub. As mentioned in the video it’s quite sticky- so make sure to rinse it off properly and maybe run over the surface area with body wash afterwards. Another one that I like it Elancyl Energising Foaming Scrub.
I also use a simple body exfoliating glove from Clicks.
3. Body Peel solutions
I have been using products containing glycolic acid and it helps a lot. Two favorites include the Theravine Age-Defying AHA Resurfacing Peel and the Optiphi Body Curve Body Foliant.
4. Moisturising every day
A creamy moisturiser can soothe the itch and dryness. Because of all the products I’m using, I like to use something simple like a Nivea cream or Lush Dream Cream.
As for lifestyle changes I’ve made, you’ll have to watch the video to see what has worked best for me. Treating Keratosis Pilaris is a journey, and there is no miracle treatment or cure. The best you can do is manage it! But, at the end of the day, don’t let it hold you back from wearing strappy tops – (as it did for me, for years!) be confident and rock whatever clothing you want!
