For as long as I can remember, I have dealt with dry skin issues, specifically on my hands and feet, but often I will look at my arms and feel like they could really use a pick-me-up; they will look scaly and dry, not really a look I’m going for!
My husband Paul has a similar issue, but his is concentrated around his upper arms, and we recently realized it is what is known as Keratosis Pilaris.
Writing out a medical term like that makes it sound crazier than it is, though! It’s also known as “KP” or “Chicken Skin”. This is when keratin builds up under the skin and can cause rough patches and bumpy skin around the upper arms, thighs, and cheeks. It’s totally harmless, but can be frustrating if you want to wear sleeveless tops or show off your arms (not that Paul is too worried about that, haha).
While there is no cure for KP, AmLactin has a product line that specifically helps manage the dry skin associated with those bumps and gives your skin a smooth, soft appearance and feel. While I don’t have KP myself, I have been using the AmLactin body lotion because it gently exfoliates the skin and leaves it looking and feeling super smooth. It’s super lightweight, unscented, and sinks into the skin really fast, which is always a plus in my book as I’m not a big fan of tacky lotions that take forever to dry!
We have been using the Amlactin Restoring Body Lotion on Paul’s upper arms for the past week, and have seen a noticeable difference in the smoothness of his skin. I know it is something that secretly bothers him, so I was happy to be able to find a product to help him with it!
For me personally, my favorite thing to use has been the AmLactin Foot Cream. As I mentioned, my feet tend to get really dry and not so cute (Good old Arizona weather means you can wear flip flops year round- While that may be the easy solution, it definitely means you need to take care of your feet!) My favorite thing is to apply a thick layer of the AmLactin foot cream right before bed, put on some socks, and sleep with it on. This allows it to really soak in and I wake up with super soft feet!
