Natural Remedies for Keratosis Pilaris
When it comes to treating keratosis pilaris the first thing to do is to avoid medical treatments such as pills, medicines and medicated ointments. These quick fix treatments are known for their damaging properties and can in fact worsen the skins condition in the long run.
Given that keratosis pilaris is an imbalance of keratin in the skins hair follicles, the last thing you want to do is clog the pores even further by applying creams and potions that contain toxins. More beneficial is to seek out natural remedies that not only help improve the appearance of the skin but also can be found in your own home.
Cleansing of the skin is perhaps the first step to naturally treat keratosis pilaris. Using products such as apple cider vinegar are said to have dramatic effects and due to their natural ingredients they are something that not only you can out in your body but also on your body. After cleansing the skin it is then important to exfoliate it. Using a natural sponge or gentle exfoliation gloves will help remove any dead skin cells which have built up on the skins surface and leave the skin looking noticeably smoother. One of the symptoms of keratosis pilaris is the unsightly hard bumps it leaves on the skin’s surface. A mixture of natural yoghurt with a small amount of granular sugar in it can serve as an exfoliating remedy and what is more it actually works.
The next step is t keep the skin moisturised and this can be done by using natural organic oils. Drinking plenty of water is also recommended as a great way to keep not only the skin but also the body well hydrated.
