Smooth It Out...

Ever get these pimple-like bumps on the backs of your arms or inner thighs? Keratosis Pilaris, aka "chicken skin" is a skin condition caused by a buildup of keratin which causes these tiny little bumps. They're harmless and do not hurt, but they're soooo not cute.

After visiting my derm, I found out that there is no cure for it and it is usually hereditary...thanx mom! The bumps are most often on the upper arms, inner thighs and buttocks. Although there's no cure, there are ways to smooth out the bumps. I've been using AmLactin lotion for the last 2-3 years and it has really made a difference. It's an Alpha-hydroxy lotion that exfoliates and moisturizes the skin. Although it's best applied on dry skin twice a day, I usually just use it once a day at night before going to bed. The skin in those areas are smooth and the bumps are barely noticeable.
