Keratosis Pilaris Remedies That Really Work

0

There is no cure for KP, but in many cases it will go away in your 30s. While there is no magic solution, there are a few things you can do to manage it that the experts outlined for us:

Take a short, warm shower. Long, hot showers will rid the skin of its natural oils, Rodney says.

Use a humidifier at home. This will help in drier months.

Avoid harsh soaps. “These soaps contain surfactants that strip the skin and damage the protective skin barrier. Instead, I recommend using a moisturizing soap like the white pigeon bar that directly moisturizes the skin,” says Rodney. You should also avoid scrubbing the area with a coarse paste or loofah, as these won’t work and could even worsen KP, MacGregor adds.
