Keratosis Pilaris treatment guide
Approximately 50 % of all men and women suffer from red, rough, and eventually itching bumps on their thighs, arms, or back.
The appearance of these little red bumps can be the cause of great frustration, since many compare the problems to acne.
These little red bumps are called keratosis pilaris and will appear when skin cells get stuck in the pores, which causes inflammation. The reason for this is unknown.
How to remove the little red bumps
The daily use of an effective exfoliant or peel will really help with removing the little red bumps (keratosis pilaris).
Please note the importance of using an effective exfoliant with salicylic acid (also called BHA) instead of a scrubbing product with grains or a rough towel.
The reason that an exfoliant with salicylic acid is more effective than a scrub (which will only make the problem worse) for removing red bumps, is that salicylic acid will help remove dead skin cells both on top of and in the pores.
At the same time, salicylic acid will reduce inflammation drastically and so reduce the redness.
An extra benefit when using salicylic acid on the little red bumps is that the ingredient will also kill the bacteria in your skin.
Bonus advice for keratosis pilaris
To get rid of the little red bumps, it is important that you reduce all forms of skin irritation and clogging. This means that you must cleanse your skin with a light cleansing gel without perfume and also avoid fragrant bars of soap.
Furthermore, you should avoid scrubbing your skin, not even with your towel, since that scrubbing will cause further irritation. The little red bumps cannot be scrubbed away from the surface of your skin, since the cause of the problem is found in the deeper layers.
