Skin Concerns: Bumpy Skin

charlotteclaire97
I have suffered from Keratosis Pilaris (KP) for many years, but I did not know what it was until recently. It is essentially a condition that makes your hair follicles on certain parts of your body get clogged with keratin. Therefore, I constantly have little bumps all over the front and back of my thighs. It is noticeable and causes me to constantly pick at my legs, so I knew I had to find something to combat it! The main thing most people (and my dermatologist) recommend is putting on a lotion that contains leave-on exfoliants that clear your pores of the keratin plugs. I have tried a few over the years, and these are my favorites! For a cost-effective option I would definitely go with the Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy Skin Lotion. It works very well and comes in a huge tub! Now, all of these lotions are pretty thick to apply, but this one is probably the thickest and the one that absorbs the worst. But, it is so much cheaper than the other options so I definitely still recommend it. The other two are a little thinner, but are about 5x more expensive than the Gold Bond (~$50). They both work very well as well! The key with these types of products is to use them consistently. If you just use it once a week it is not going to have the best results, you need to use it over time to see the bumps disappear!

Product Mentioned
New Body Care Must Haves ❄️
During the fall/winter months is when you prep for the spring/summer months. Any “insecurity” or “problem area” you want to tackle on your body is best done now. Why? Unless you live somewhere warm year round, you’re probably bundled up and in the house more. Giving you that layer of protection from the sun and climate, why not start now? My focus areas for these products: Arms/legs Boobs Underarms Hyperpigmentation (L👉🏾R) DERMAdoctor - KP Duty Lotion Oooh y’all! Okay so I don’t have really bad KP (“Keratosis pilaris”), yet I love the benefits. Ingredients: Glycolic + Lactic Acids- Powerful AHAs that work as chemical exfoliants to reveal smoother, softer, more radiant skin Ceramides- Work to prevent excessive water loss due to evaporation and maintain a healthy skin barrier. Urea- Humectant Gluconolactone- Anti-aging antioxidant benefits and is a mega-moisturizing humectant able to hold 4x its weight in water compared to hyaluronic acid Squalane- Restorative , healing, Cupuacu Seed Butter- packed with essential fatty acids to protect and moisturize skin and polyphenols to combat free radical damage Anti Redness Complex- Composed of White Tea, Licorice, Boswellia Serrata + Superoxide Dismutase - works to minimize the appearance of redness at the base of affected hair follicles, erasing “polka dot” skin. Willow Bark- Natural BHA with a molecular size smaller than AHAs able to more easily penetrate hair follicles and oil glands and chemically exfoliate debris. With that all star ingredient list whew! Just be sure to wear your sunscreen ! This is on sale at Ulta ($19) retails ($38) TRULY - Acai Your Boobies Lifting Boob Serum A boob lift in a serum? Ingredients: Retinol- Helps hyperpigmentation, boob/chest acne, minimizes wrinkles and fine lines, and boost collagen! Like what doesn’t this do? Açaí- Antioxidant rich berry extract that helps keep skin glowing and hydrated. Okay I was super skeptical about this product! After having my son I miss my old girls. So I started doing boob lifting exercises and using this serum! If you look up Sanne Vander on YT work outs to make this effective! I got this from Ulta for $28 meow meow tweet - Lavender Baking Soda Free Deodorant Cream So natural skin care is starting to become my thing again! I did a post about why you should switch to aluminum free deo (🔍 dupe for native). So when I ran across this beauty I was tempted! This brand is: vegan clean organic Ingredients: Lavender: antibacterial Tea Tree Oil : antibacterial Arrow Root: alternative to talc ! Shea Butter: amazing moisturizer! The ingredients are literally this few and only organic 😍 My favorite thing about this deo is you rub it on like a body lotion under your pits! The smell is amazing and light! It’s on sale @ Ulta $7 ( I just bought 2 more) retails $14 What’s your current body routine ? ✨✨

AHA Lotions for Keratosis Pilaris
Both of these lotions are targeted for people with keratosis pilaris (KP). This is a skin condition where excess keratin plugs your pores and creates little bumps. This is a condition I have had on my thighs for many years, but I only recently learned about what it was! One of the main things recommended for KP are lotions that contain ingredients to gently exfoliate the skin, which in turn helps to unclog the pores. One of the main ingredients used in these types of lotions is AHA (alpha hydroxy acids), which is the main ingredient in both of these lotions. These are both at similar price points, around $50. The SkinFix cream is thicker than the KP Duty lotion, which is more of the consistency of an everyday lotion. I have used them both consistently and really did see results with both! The key for these types of lotions is that you really do have to use them consistently to see results.I typically would only apply the SkinFix cream at night before getting into my pajamas so that it had time to soak in overnight. The KP duty lotion is better for everyday, so this is the one I will continue to purchase throughout the warmer months! But I definitely recommend both.

Say goodbye to bumpy skin!!
I’ve been using this duo for the past 2 weeks and the skin on the back of my legs & butt has never been more smooth! These are perfect for anyone who suffers from keratosis pilaris. The scrub is used 2-3x a week on dry skin and then washed off in the shower. Helps exfoliate the skin with a fine physical exfoliant but also includes glycolic and lactic acid to help brighten/smooth and help increase cell turnover. The particles are so fine this never causes any irritation on my skin. The only reason I am not giving the scrub 5 stars is because for the amount I use on my body the price seems kind of steep at 40$ CAD. This body cream is a DREAM. If you had to choose just one of these products I’d go with this. It has a rich creamy texture and has a natural AHA blend to help smooth out any bumpy textures but also gives amazing hydration. I noticed results after using this cream for only a few days! Will 100% repurchase this product. I sometimes will get a bit of acne on my butt/ behind my legs and this has helped clear it up!

This product fixed my strawberry legs
skinfix - Resurface+ AHA Renewing Cream Scrolling on Sephora, I was looking for a product that could help my rough and bumpy legs. I often get ingrown hairs and irritation from shaving. I came across this AHA lotion from skinfix and decided to give it a try. Firs off, the product is a huge tub. You definitely get bang for your buck because this would last me so long. I’ve had it for a month so far and it looks like I’ve barely put a dent in it. I wasn’t expecting this to have a scent to be honest because I thought it was going to be for sensitive skin. I didn’t like the lime scent at first, but now I really enjoy it. The scent actually doesn’t irritate my legs as I thought it would and I enjoy it now! It smells so much like a margarita! After almost 1 month if pretty consistent use, I can say that I’ve seen results! I’ve paired the use of this with a body scrub on my legs and while my legs aren’t perfectly smooth, they’re definitely better! My legs are way less itchy and irritated after shaving and my skin tone is a lot more even. My legs are drastically less red and bumpy! I wish I had a before and after but I didn’t even think of snapping a before photo! My only downside to this product is that its a bit expensive. $45 is a lot for a body lotion. As an alternative, I think people would see results with the Cerave SA lotion. While it’s a BHA not an AHA, I think the results would be comparable.

Chicken Skin Be Gone!
For years I have struggled with “chicken skin” on my upper arms and chest. There were times that it was so bad that I was bullied and called a “chicken” both for my chicken-like skin and my acne (my acne resembled chicken pox at times). After a while I came to accept it as part of my skin. Until recently! These pictures were taken approximately five weeks apart. As you can see in the top corners of the first picture I had notiecabld discoloration and bumps (“chicken skin”). It is still not completely gone but overall my skin has gotten much better and the bumps have faded significantly. If you have this and are wondering what this is it is called Keratosis Pilaris. Keratosis pilaris is a common, harmless skin condition that causes small, hard bumps that may make your skin feel like sandpaper. You may have heard it called “chicken skin.” The bumps are often light-colored. They usually appear on your upper arms, thighs, and buttocks, sometimes with redness or swelling. It’s appearance can be reduced by using chemically exfoliating products that contain ingredients such as salicylic acid. I have sensitive skin so I wanted my routine to be fairly simple and contain minimal products. Every day that I showered I began with the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne wash on my arms. Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash I chose this because it’s a product I have used before and it didn’t contain a harsh percentage of Salicylic acid. After I showered and toweled off I used the Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy skin lotion. GOLD BOND - Rough & Bumpy Skin Once a week I used The Ordinary Peeling Solution for nine minutes before applying the Gold Bond lotion. It’s important to make sure you have thoroughly washed off the Neutrogena face wash because if you did not then the Ordinary Peeling Face Mask with form a weird lather and can potentially irritate your skin.The Ordinary - AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution It was definitely a lot of work to do this on top of my acne routine as well and I didn’t see overnight results but overall I would say it was totally worth it! Pro tip: if you have chicken skin make sure you MOISTURIZE! A common cause of chicken skin is dry skin.

🌙 Goodbye Chestne & Backne 🌙
The one thing I hate about the summer months, especially when you have very humid weather, is the fact that sweat, oil, and bacteria often lead to body acne. Unfortunately for me I have extremely reactive skin. So even one pimple on my chest or back is like a red beacon that can be seen from outer space. However, while researching body moisturizers to help ease folliculitis on my legs I found a secret weapon that has completely erased my body acne, so let’s talk about it! 🌙🌙🌙🌙 GOLD BOND - Rough & Bumpy Skin is a highly moisturizing unscented cream with several active ingredients that help unclog pores, exfoliate, and speed up cell turnover. It contains a nice blend of AHA, BHA, and PHA chemical exfoliants. Since the formula is thick and super moisturizing and unscented it shouldn’t leave your skin irritated. 🌙🌙🌙🌙 Since the skin on my body is so reactive I was skeptical that this product would be too harsh for me. However, after using this for two months applying it every night to my chest and back I’ve seen a dramatic improvement in dark spots and occurrence of acne blemishes. For the first time in many years my back and chest is completely clear (to note my body acne has always been VERY mild, but annoying nonetheless). As for the folliculitis on my legs, I still get stubborn clogged pores but no where near as bad as it used to be. Quick word of warning for all you sensitive skinned humans, don’t apply this after shaving, it burns! The only downside I have encountered is that it can make your skin peel which I guess is a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you want to look at it. If you apply it at night you shouldn’t have a problem the next day. This is safe to use everyday, but please apply sunscreen if you apply it in the A.M. 🌙🌙🌙🌙 So have you tried this little miracle worker yet? If so what did you think?

Resurface+ by Skinfix
Resurface+ by Skinfix
I’ve been using the resurface+ line by Skinfix to try to deal with my ingrown hairs & some bumps that cover my arms. All the resurface+ products have a light lime scent, which I really like, but obviously fragrances aren’t for everyone so definitely important to note. I initially started using just the lotion, and it blew my expectations out of the water, the texture alone is so thick, a little goes a very long way so this has lasted me sooo long! It takes a little bit of time to absorb but it leaves behind such smooth skin and has made a noticeable difference in the texture of my skin. The glycolic renewing scrub is a grainy/salt like texture that is a bit difficult to spread because it’s meant to be applied to dry skin. It left my skin smooth and actually helped tame my ingrown hair! When used together, this is a true dream team. My skin is so soft, and my ingrown hairs are visibly better than they were before one use of these products. If you’re dealing with any type of skin bumps/need a deep body exfoliation, I highly recommend this line!!

Shower Fave! FAB KP Bump Eraser Scrub
Shower Fave! FAB KP Bump Eraser Scrub
FIRST AID BEAUTY - KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA *skin has been dry and flakey New topic, who dis? Buckle up for my favourite shower line up guys! Starting in no particular order, this is the First Aid Beauty kp bump eraser. In no technical terms, kp is essentially that bumpy chicken skin you can get a round your arms and legs and it just doesn’t feel or look great. I myself have this on my arm and thighs specifically. I picked this up for my birthday in September - thanks dad - and still have a fair amount of the tube left. This really has a lot of product for only $30 or so. A steal in my books. It’s also super easy to just squeeze out in the shower - no fuss packaging is everything when your hands are wet. The scrub itself works so well. It’s a grey and grainy texture which could honestly resemble cement. I usually use about two squeezes to cover most of my body, specifically areas of concern. This usually includes my elbows (forever suffering from black elbows help) my legs, thigh to calf and my butt bc who doesn’t want a smooth butt. Because this is a physical exfoliants I do find it’s a little rough especially on my sensitive skin. If I scrub too hard or for too long I do find my skin gets raw, and I have taken off some arm hair accidentally. For that reason, I’ve limited use to this to only about once a week. After I shave, I’ll apply this and come out of the shower with new born baby skin. I immediately moisturize and my body is smooth for d a y s. We love it. This is definitely something I would recommend trying if you do suffer from kp. There are other products out there that target the same thing but I find this is the cheapest and I can see the results immediately after use!

KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA
FIRST AID BEAUTY-KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub with 10% AHA
💟 firstaidbeauty  KP Bump Era
💟 firstaidbeauty KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub . For those who don’t know, Keratosis Pilaris (KP) is a common skin condition that causes dry/rough patches and tiny bumps on your skin. You don’t need to have KP to use this scrub (I don’t) but I’ve heard that it has worked wonders for those who do. Like most body scrubs, it is meant to exfoliate your skin so it is healthy and smooth. However, unlike most other scrubs, in addition to physically exfoliating with pumice buffing beads, it also has glycolic & lactic acid to chemically exfoliate the tougher bumps and patches that KP is known for. The physical exfoliants are super fine & do such a good job at scrubbing away the roughness in my skin. Because of the acid, I’ve only been using this every couple of days and it has not left my skin irritated. My daughter does have KP and even though it’s harmless, her upper arms and legs are very bumpy and dry. I might consider talking to my pediatrician about using this on her (I am definitely going to consult the doctor due to the acids) so if she gives me the go ahead I can see how it performs on actual KP. It’s a very innovative product & I’m enjoying it ❤️
