Keratosis Pilaris

This condition is a disorder of the skin that is hereditary, and can be experienced by people with very dry skin / or a Vitamin A deficiency.

Keratosis Pilaris presents as permanent “goose bumps”. They generally appear on the back of the upper arms, and outer upper thighs. Generally the bumps are caused by keratinised sebum with a hair trapped in the middle of it and contained within the follicle. At the time of writing, there is no known cure per se’, but symptoms can be alleviated by the gentle exfoliating action of Tend Skin Liquid. There is no need to use additional exfoliation provided by items such as loofah’s and exfoliation mits.
