Keratosis Pilaris aka KP aka chicken or strawberry skin is a common skin condition caused by the buildup of keratin (what your hair and nails are made of) that plugs your pores. It’s often found on the upper arms, thighs, cheeks, or bum, and looks like little bumps that cover the skin.

Should you be worried? Nope. It’s a harmless, genetic condition. It’s not contagious and usually doesn’t cause discomfort or itchiness.

So what ingredient gets rid of KP?

Glycolic acid is a really teeny tiny acid molecule, which means it can penetrate more easily to soften those plugs of keratin. He’s a powerful little guy at getting great results. You’ll find it in my Glycolic Body Scrub, duh.

Double down on the chemical exfoliation when you follow with my Smoothing AHA Body Lotion overnight. My lactic acid and alpha hydroxyl acid will keep gobbling up dead skin cells even while you sleep. Lather on my Smoothing AHA Body Lotion for a serious KP treatment.

And then there’s salicylic acid. Gentle exfoliation is this beta hydroxy acid’s (aka BHAs) game. It goes deep to slough off stubborn dead skin, reduce excess oil, and take out whiteheads and blackheads. This is my hero ingredient within the Clearing Body Wash from Everyday.

BTW doctors agree that picking at KP is a bad idea. “A misconception many people with KP have is that they think it’s acne and treat it like it’s acne,” Dr. Wechsler explains, but it can just make things worse. “ If you have an unconscious habit [of picking], give yourself something small to play with, like a rubber band or a scrunchy or a Rubix cube, and wear long sleeves so you have less access.”

Don’t just take it from me, I’ve got nearly a thousand babes to vouch for my KP-clearing abilities. Check out this one from WHO Australia:

“Not only does it smell amazing, but after just one week of using the Glycolic Body Scrub we noticed our skin had gotten much smoother – and clearer. It even helped reduce those pesky bumps on the back of the arm!”
