All About Those Bumps

Have you ever noticed tiny, prickly bumps on the back of your arms? Or maybe you have them on your cheeks, your thighs, or even your butt. They look the same color as the rest of your skin - well, most of the time - but they can feel like sandpaper.

They’re called keratosis pillaris (translation: bumpy skin) and they are completely normal.

To make keratosis pillaris go away, try these steps: whenever you bathe or shower, gently (gently!) wash them with a soapy towel or loofah - the friction can exfoliate the skin and unclog the pore below. And after bathing, moisturize well. Finally, do your very best to NOT PICK at them!
