Have you noticed small, red bumps on the back of your arms, cheeks or on the sides of your thighs? You probably didn't know what to call them or where they came from. These unsightly red bumps are produced by friction, dryness and sometimes weak hairs trapped within the follicles. Keratosis pilaris occurs on the face, often during puberty, and is sometimes mistaken as "rosy cheeks." This condition usually runs in families, so your parents or siblings probably have it, too.
In most cases it is only a nuisance disorder but can still cause embarrassment. There are different treatments you can use to help this skin issue without having to take medications or go to a dermatologist. One treatment to definitely check out is the Glytone Retexturize Keratosis Pilaris Kit, specifically formulated to rid your skin of those unsightly bumps. Included in the kit is the Glytone Retexturize Exfoliating Body Wash, Glytone Retexturize Body Lotion and an exfoliating pouf.
