About Keratosis Pilaris

You’re probably already aware that exfoliation is good for your skin. Dry, rough and bumpy skin associated with Keratosis Pilaris (the not so sexy chicken skin on arms and legs) is a common but harmless skin condition that can appear and feel like dry, acne-like either white or reddish colored bumps on skin. They occur mostly on the back of the arms, thighs, calves, buttocks and cheeks. This condition develops when skin produces too much of a protein called keratin, which can block hair follicles (cause of bumps). Scratching can make it look worse. It looks unattractive and makes us feel unattractive – let us help change that.

According to the PubMed Central database from the National Institute of Health Keratosis Pilaris can appear anywhere on the body that has hair follicles and affects approximately 50-80% of adolescents and 40% adults.


Upper arms (in 92 percent of cases)


Thighs (in 59 percent of cases)


Buttocks (in 30 percent of cases)


Keratin is the main protein in the protective surface layer of the skin. It is also what makes up your hair and nails. Bumps associated with Keratosis Pilaris develop when excess keratin builds up in hair follicles and forms a hardened plug that blocks the opening of the hair follicle. When plugs form in hair follicles it can cause irritated, reddish, rough and bumpy skin.

The Magic Sauce To Help Reduce The Appearance Of Keratosis Pilaris

Treating dry and bumpy skin is most effective if using a combination of glycolic acid (AHA) and salicylic acid (BHA).

Glycolic acid (AHA) works as a gentle exfoliant that helps dissolve the top layer of dead skin cells.

Removing the dead, dry skin cells makes way for new, younger skin cells and results in a more even skin tone, smoother surface and a healthier appearance.

Salicylic acid (BHA) is fat soluble, which gives it the ability to work its way to the bottom of clogged hair follicles to help dissolve the hardened excess build up of keratin.
