Treating Keratosis Pilaris
Topical Salicylic Acid (BHA) is the single most effective way to treat Keratosis Pilaris
Products I recommend
Spotless from Perfectly Posh contains 2% salicylic acid, aloe vera & witch hazel and comes in handy pads. Just $16 and these rival the most expensive brands.
Exuviance Clear & Smooth are also exfoliating pads. These are dermatologist grade and combine 2% salicylic acid with mandelic and benzelic acids for maximum exfoliation. When I worked as a skincare therapist for the company, it was a client favorite. I saw many with greatly improved self esteem after just a few uses of these pads!
Another sound product for Keratosis Pilaris is something that is in my shower right now: Emmaus Smiling Beads Body Wash. In my view, this is a MUST HAVE PRODUCT if you are suffering from Keratosis Pilaris. Why? This AMAZING body wash features both glycolic AND salicylic acid. It also contains jojoba oil, aloe vera, coffee, hibiscus & more. This is a new to me product and every time I get in the shower these past few weeks, I cannot wait to lather up because it DOES have a noticeable impact!
Paula's Choice Resist Weightless Body Treatment 2% BHA is another product I highly recommend. This lightweight lotion is non-irritating, fragrance free and keeps the skin nicely hydrated.
