Superb Beauty Product For Mature dry skin, Have You Heard Of Keratosis Pilaris?

Keratosis Pilaris or ‘KP’ for short is that bumpy dry skin that you get at the top of your arms, a bit like ‘chicken skin’ it also can appear on your legs, bum and on your face too. It is a harmless skin condition that affects at least 40% of the UK. The label suggests some form of bad breath dont you think? Yes I must admit I have learnt a lot from researching this post…

Keratosis Pilaris

I suspect that the percentage may even be higher, because I’m guessing that like me. many of you did not even know it was an actual skin condition and just thought it was something that happens in winter? Causes of Keratosis Pilaris are not fully understood but it is genetic in more than half those affected.It is closely related to other dry skin conditions and tends to get worse in cold weather when the humidity is lower.

…The skin produces a natural protein, Keratin, which is an important part of its outer layer. Bumps occur when excess Keratin is produced and together with dead skin cells, builds up inside the hair follicles.

 

Exfoliation or lotion for dry skin?

I use both, because the top of my arms always become drier in winter, woolly jumpers, central heating and age have all taken their toll. I do exfoliate and occasionally I body brush, but sometimes it all seems a little harsh and too much like hard work. Hot water and long showers or baths make this condition worse.

My Story, how I discovered Ameliorate Lotion.

Imagine the scene it is Christmas 2017… I had treated myself to my first Marks & Spencer’s advent Calendar and was intrigued by a small sample size tube of Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion. 

The blue and white colours looked clinical and I had never heard of it before, what was it doing in the M&s Christmas advent calendar? I read the instructions and over the next couple of days used it on my arms after my shower and before going to bed.

 Top tips to care for Dry skin with Keratosis Pilaris or KP

 

  •  Lower central heating, reduce air conditioning, use a humidifier while indoors.
  •  Protect your skin in cold or warm dry air by wearing cotton.
  •  You can never ‘cure’ KP only manage it; once you stop your routine the Keratin and dead skin cells will build up again in the hair follicle, and the bumps will return, so regular skin ‘maintenance’ is essential.

Pricing:

I had one problem … the tubes were too small and were working out too expensive for me.

I had been buying the 200ML body lotion tubes for £22.50 and they were lasting about 3-4 weeks  I almost felt like writing to Ameliorate and asking for a bigger bottle…

Supersized Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion

Low and behold they now make a larger 500ml bottle and at the moment it only costs £39 (worth £56)

    Now that’s really interesting. I always had that condition but until I read this piece I didn’t realize that I don’t anymore. Reason, I moved to a warmer climate! I expect that buying this well researched and highly recommend product would work out a bit cheaper in the long run tho 😉
