What is Keratosis Pilaris (KP) AKA Strawberry Skin?🍓

Hey there! Let's chat about Keratosis Pilaris (KP), a common skin condition that many of us deal with. KP is those little bumps or rough patches you might notice on the backs of your arms, thighs and bum. Don't worry, it's totally normal! It happens when your skin produces too much keratin, which then plugs up your hair follicles, causing those pesky bumps. But fear not, there are ways to manage it!

Keeping your skin hydrated with gentle moisturisers, using exfoliating scrubs to slough away dead skin cells, and incorporating products with ingredients like salicylic acid or alpha hydroxy acids can help smooth things out. Remember, consistency is key! So, embrace your skin, bumps and all, and let's show KP who's boss.

Getting into the habit of moisturising is key to ensure your KP stays away once treated. Your skin will naturally become more dry in the colder months do you may need to moisturiser twice a day. 
Exfoliation is just as important and should be done a few times a week. When
bathing or showering, use lukewarm water and avoid rubbing your skin too harshly because this can irritate your skin more and prolong any appearance of KP. Just gently remove the top layer of dead skin with light rubbing. We recommend our Resurfacing 2-in-1 Exfoliant which is suitable to use all on your body too!
Taking these small steps every day can reduce the appearance of KP and leave your skin feeling soft and looking smooth in no time.
