Everyone has something about their body they don’t like: maybe you hateyour knobby knees, despise your double chin, or can’t stand your frizzy hair.
Although other people probably don’t even notice the things you’re insecure about, everyone feels more confident when they’re able to successfully eradicate a problem they feel they have and confidence is the key to true beauty.
One thing some people really don’t like about their bodies are those tiny skin bumps that appear on the backs of their arms, upper thighs, and other parts. Although other people can barely see them, if you have them, you know just how annoying they can be.
The dry, rough bumps (commonly called “chicken skin” because of their appearance) are known as keratosis pilaris. Although it’s annoying, keratosis pilaris is otherwise harmless and often goes away with age.
Although you can’t prevent keratosis pilaris, you can treat it with at-home remedies to lessen its effects.
However, always be sure to speak to your dermatologist first, and make sure these all-natural treatments are right for you.
