How to Manage Keratosis Pilaris Effectively
Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is a skin condition that causes rough, dry patches and tiny bumps on the skin. It develops when the skin produces too much keratin, which can block hair follicles and cause acne-like bumps to develop on the skin. It is a common skin condition but it usually disappears by the age of 30.
If you have KP, then you know how uncomfortable it can be. But when you have a good routine for managing KP, the symptoms can definitely improve. Here are the best tips for managing keratosis pilaris effectively and some of the best products for keratosis pilaris we want to you to know about!
1) Exfoliate Gently
It can be tempting to want to scrub the rough, dry patches off of the skin. But rough exfoliation can actually inflame the skin even more. It’s important to exfoliate the skin regularly, but if you have KP, you should be exfoliating gently.
When you’re exfoliating, make sure to scrub gently and always follow the exfoliation with a moisturizer to give the skin necessary hydration. Our Keratosis Pilaris Exfoliating Body Wash is the best body wash for keratosis pilaris you can add to your routine because it’s a gentle exfoliant that also gives you a deep cleanse. After washing the skin using the body wash, follow up with our Keratosis Pilaris Exfoliating lotion for the best results.
2) Moisturize Regularly
When it comes to managing KP, moisture is key. If the skin becomes too dry, the symptoms for KP can worsen, especially during winter and fall when the temperature and humidity levels drop. Having a moisturizer that you can use twice daily is super important to managing keratosis pilaris.
Our Keratosis Pilaris Exfoliating Lotion contains Glycine Soja Oil, a natural moisturizer, rich in antioxidants & Vitamin E. It also contains Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (CCT) which is an excellent emollient derived from coconut oil and glycerin. It leaves your skin feeling silky and non-greasy. Finally, Aloe Vera stimulates new cell growth and has moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties.
The most important tip for managing KP is keeping up a consistent routine. Effective products will clear the skin but as soon as you stop using the products, the symptoms may show up again. Getting in the habit of washing the skin twice daily with a glycolic body wash that targets KP and following up with a moisturizing lotion will keep KP symptoms at bay.
Touch Skin Care makes this step easy for you with our Keratosis Pilaris bundle. The two keratosis pilaris products complement each other and work together to keep KP symptoms from showing up. All that’s left for you to do is stay consistent with it to continue to see results!
