Ever since I was in high school, I’ve struggled with what some call “chicken skin”, but is actually a condition called keratosis pilaris. This means that I get inflamed bumps on the backs of my arms that look like zits. If I ever pick at them, they become huge and unsightly. I always felt super self-conscious about them, because if I left them alone they looked like zits (GROSSS), and if I tried to get rid of them I looked like I had welts on my arms (also GROSSSSSS). It was a no-win.
I have tried everything to get rid of them. Eventually I settled on a regimen of exfoliation and moisturizer, because it seemed to help lessen the amount, but they were never truly gone. I HATE THEM. Particularly in the summer.
One day, my husband asked me to pick up some affordable simple face lotion that he could use in the winter months. A few weeks later, I ran out of my normal lotion so I used a pump of his face lotion on my arms. When I woke up the next morning, my pumps were gone. No joke. I’ve been using this sweet little bottle of awesomeness on the backs of my arms ever since.
Do I have your attention yet?! What if I told you that the lotion only cost $6? And it is fragrance and paraben free? And it is full of antioxidants? It is the REAL DEAL, folks. Here it is:
For those of you lucky enough to live near a Trader Joe’s, this can be found with the health and beauty items. It’s a small bottle, but a little goes a long way. For those of you who don’t have a Trader Joe’s nearby, you can grab a bottle from Amazon.com.
Trust me, I’ve tried it all. This bottle is worth it.
