How to get rid of chicken skin: This body lotion from Ameliorate transforms keratosis pilaris and rough skin – and it’s now 25% off on Amazon
Keratosis pilaris, also known as KP or chicken skin, is a genetic condition that causes stubborn, rough, bumpy goose pimples on areas like your upper arms, legs, thighs, and butt.
The common condition is harmless and caused by a build-up of keratin around the hair follicles. This occurs due to a lack of sebum, the natural protective oil which lubricates the skin.
Although it’s tough to treat, particularly in the winter when your skin becomes drier, some treatments and creams that contain salicylic, glycolic or lactic acid can help to gently loosen the dead skin cells and alleviate the symptoms.
Ameliorate is a dermatological skincare brand that has been designed specially to help treat keratosis pilaris – and this body lotion is currently reduced by 25 per cent on Amazon
Enter the Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion, which has been hailed as one of the best products on the market to treat KP, working as both an exfoliant and skin hydrator. Even better, right now you can scoop up the top-rated lotion with 25 per cent off on Amazon.
The lightweight game-changing lotion, which now costs £16.88, is designed specially to help treat keratosis pilaris and is formulated with lactic acid and sweet almond oil to help smooth bumps and soften skin.
It’s no wonder why more than 500 shoppers have given the lotion an average 4.4-star rating on Amazon, with users describing it as a ‘miracle for keratosis pilaris’. Based on the reviews, you won’t be disappointed.
‘This a great product for keratosis (bumpy arms),’ wrote one reviewer. ‘I have used it once a day, and my arms have improved so much. They feel smooth. I am now ordering my third tube.’
‘I have suffered from Keratosis pilaris since childhood and over the years have tried various creams/ointments but have failed to find anything effective…. up until now!’ another happy review noted.
Keratosis pilaris, also known as KP or chicken skin, is a completely harmless skin condition caused by a build-up of keratin around the hair follicles
‘This cream has made a huge difference to the appearance of my skin (I apply to my legs) and my skin is super soft! A little goes a long way and soaks in very quickly. I highly recommend this product and wouldn’t be without it.’
For best results, use the Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion twice daily for four weeks, and from then onward apply daily to maintain the skin’s condition.
While there’s no clear scientific reason as to why one person might develop keratosis pilaris, we hate to break it to you, but it’s often thought to be genetic – so blame your parents.
Just don’t be tempted to pop, over-exfoliate or scrub in a bid for smooth skin – it’s the quickest route to redness and irritation.
