Keratosis Pilaris is more common than you think Keratosis Pilaris aka “chicken skin”, it may have funny nick names but if you have it, then it’s no laughing matter. Keratosis pilaris is the clinical name for those red, rough bumps on the skin which can show up on the arms, thighs, face and other part of the body. While it naturally goes away for most during puberty or early adulthood, for many it still sticks around and can flare up at random times.

QUESTION: So what is the simple solution to help keep keratosis pilaris away?
ANSWER: Using a gentle body scrub filled with skin softening oils and nutrients
The proof is in the reviews. My customers who have keratosis pilaris rave about how their skin feels after using a jar of pureSCRUBS Dead Sea salt body scrubs. I have over 2,000+ five-star reviews on Amazon and below are real reviews from customers with KP.
Most people do not think about it, but using a gentle body scrub can make a tremendous difference on the roughness that is associated with KP skin. I make handcrafted, organic body scrubs for a living and in addition to getting reviews like shown above, I also get wonderful emails on a regular basis from customers who have varying degrees of keratosis pilaris. They talk about their personal journey with KP and how my body scrubs have helped them. It is so rewarding to know that my scrubs are helping.
The pureSCRUBS difference At pureSCRUBS, we make our scrubs with all natural and organic ingredients that does wonders for your skin. Our scrubs are very gentle and when you have KP this is so important. As the fine grains of Dead Sea salt exfoliate and removes old, dead skin cells, our blend of essential oils, butters, nutrients are right behind providing intense moisturization and hydration. Your KP will hate it BUT your skin will love it!
Not only that, exfoliating the skin is something that you should be doing on a regular basis for soft, healthy, and radiant looking skin so it is like your skin is getting a double benefit. And if you have keratosis pilaris then exfoliation plays a more important role in keeping your skin healthy and KP away.
Consistency is a key factor By using pureSCRUBS body scrubs, there is a good chance you can reduce the appearance of your keratosis pilaris within a few weeks. But you have to be consistent and it should be added to your skin regimen. There are a lot of factors both internal (hormones, stress, biological makeup) and external (weather, seasons, etc.) that can dictate when KP flares up and most of this is out of your control. However, being consistent with the use of a body scrub is within your control and this consistency, over time, will keep your skin looking soft, healthy, and radiant and most importantly - keep KP away.
