Did you know 60% of the population suffers from a skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris? Also referred to as “chicken skin”, this red/bumpy eye sore is most commonly found on the back of one’s arms, thighs and even cheeks. If you contribute to the 60% of people who have this skin condition, I can relate, for I am a victim as well. Luckily, I have a few tricks up my sleeve to alleviate the burden!
WHAT CAUSES KERATOSIS PILARIS
Keratosis Pilaris is an inherited condition where the skin hyper-produces keratinocytes within the follicle wall. Due to the build-up of keratinocytes, many people mistake these outbreaks for acne (similar to the way acne forms, a different type of cell is shedding). Keratinocytes can appear as inflammation or bumps on the skin, although do not produce debris (pus) in the skin pore. Although there is currently no cure for this condition, the good news is that it can be managed!
