Skin Care | KP

Hey  lovelies,
So, Keratosis Pilaris sucks right?
You know, the big, red bumpy skin you get all over your arms, legs and maybe face?
Yeah, it sucks!
I have been suffering with KP since before I can remember, and #truthtime it's probably one of my biggest insecurities. I HATE getting my arms out because it looks as if something has attacked me... obviously my arms were too ugly to actually eat.
Now, like any other insecure teenage girl I took to Google to find away to banish this pathetic insecurity. This probably made things worst as I discovered it's NOT CURABLE!
It's genetic and will never completely go away.
HOWEVER,
You can treat KP. You can get the bumps gone and you can stop the red inflammation. Want to know how? Keep reading...

1) EXFOLIATE
This is key to get rid of all the dead skin your body hoards. Here is a link you should use to learn how to successfully exfoliate your body.



2) MOISTURIZE
KP is a lot of dry skin. But you can't just use any old moisturiser. Use moisturiser that contains UREA or Vitamins E, D or A. Preferably E as I've found that works best for me. Also, Aqueous cream - I'm not sure what it contains - was prescribed to be throughout childhood as my KP got so bad, but if your GP won't prescribe you NO FEAR, you can get it for under £5 on the highstreet. (WARNING: Though I suffer from eczema and have never experience irritation, some people have. Bare that in mind!)




3) SUN YOURSELF UP
Obviously there is boundries to how much you can sun it up, and don't forget sun cream, but the sun always helps to clear my KP up. Every holiday is when I feel most confident as my skin never looks as good as when I've spent the day on the beach

Hopefully, this is going to help you get your dream skin!
Lots of Love.

  1. Sun just cures everything - my motto right now is, if you can't tone it - tan it!
