First off…

What is Keratosis Pilaris?

Did you know that about 40% of adults have Keratosis Pilaris?

Keratosis Pilaris (ker-uh-TOE-sis pih-LAIR-is): a common skin condition that causes dry, rough patches and tiny bumps, usually on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, or buttocks.

These bumps typically do not hurt or itch, but at times can be super annoying and/or embarrassing.

Keratosis Pilaris is also known as “KP” and “chicken skin” and can occur at any age.

So, What Causes KP?

Keratosis Pilaris actually results from the buildup of keratin.

Keratin is a hard protein that protects the skin from harmful substances and/or infection.

When keratin forms a scaly plug that blocks the opening of the hair follicle, this is known as KP.

Usually many plugs form, causing patches of rough, bumpy skin.

Truth is, no one knows exactly why keratin builds up, but dry skin tends to worsen the condition.

what Causes KP?

How do I manage KP?

While there is no cure for KP, there are amazing products like AmLactin, which contain alpha-hydroxy, that can really help with the dry skin associated with the condition.
