Keratosis Pilaris


Do you suffer from red bumps on your skin? Another name for this is keratosis pilaris. It's caused by cornification of the upper skin layer. Skin clots accumulate in the hair follicles, resulting in your skin feeling rough and lumpy and appearing red. Some people also suffer from minor inflammations in these red bumps. Discover more

How to deal with red bumps

The best way to deal with red bumps is by using an exfoliating product. This effectively clears the pore and makes dead skin cells easier to peel off. To start, choose a BHA-exfoliant with active salicylic acid that removes dead skin cells and cleans the pores on the inside. If your skin doesn't respond well to salicylic acid, use an AHA exfoliant. AHA also effectively removes dead skin cells, but is unable to penetrate into the pore. You should always maintain skin that's prone to keratosis pilaris as well. You can do this by constantly exfoliating it. If you stop, the red bumps will likely return, something which you definitely don't want.
