I know how to get rid of keratosis pilaris on arms naturally because I had it and now I don’t!
Keratosis Pilaris on Arms
When I was a kid, I had terrible keratosis pilaris on my arms and I didn’t even know what it was! It never bothered me until I got made fun of for having chicken skin! From then on I became conscious of my ‘ugly’ arms and it contributed greatly to my shyness in school.
I would never take my sweater off in class even though it was boiling hot outside. I soon became known as ‘sweater girl’ but keeping my sweater on was way easier than exposing my chicken arms for all to tease me about.
As a teenager, I developed a great passion for health and that’s when I realized I could heal my “chicken skin” naturally! By the way, I also had keratosis pilaris on my neck and even that got healed with natural remedies!
I truly hope that you get to heal your keratosis pilaris on arms or any other part of your body. I know what it’s like to suffer from the consequences of this harmless yet embarrassing skin condition.
How to Get Rid of Keratosis Pilaris on Arms
There may be a ton of other natural remedies that could possibly heal keratosis pilaris on arms, but these are the top 5 tricks that I used. Please try them out!
1. Exfoliate: Make a baking soda scrub by mixing 2 teaspoons of baking soda with 2 teaspoons of coconut oil. Rub this firmly on your arms for at least 2 minutes. Baking soda also has detoxing properties that can help heal the condition. Coconut oil itself is also a great remedy for keratosis pilaris, which helps moisturize and soothe the skin. Exfoliating will greatly reduce the appearance of keratosis pilaris and also removes dead skin allowing the following other treatments to work even more effectively.
2. Oatmeal Mask: After exfoliating, apply this wonder mask for keratosis pilaris on arms. Mix 4 teaspoons of oatmeal powder with 1 teaspoon of honey and 3 teaspoons of rose water. Now apply this paste all over your arms. Let it rest for at least 15 minutes before washing off with warm water and a cloth for easy removal.
3. Essential Oils: My favorite essential oils for keratosis pilaris are lavender, frankincense and lemongrass. Make a keratosis pilaris balm by mixing ½ a cup of shea butter with 10 drops of lavender, 5 drops of lemon grass and 5 drops of frankincense. Apply this onto your skin twice a day.
4. Drink More Water: One thing about me is that when I suffered from keratosis pilaris, I never drank water. I didn’t know that I had to drink plenty of water for my health, no one told me! Once I started drinking water, at least 10 cups a day, my overall health and my skin conditions automatically started improving!
5. Diet and Medication: A striking point about my journey with keratosis pilaris is that it was terrible in my childhood and teenage years where I constantly had to be put on antibiotics. Once I got rid of the constant bombardment of antibiotics in my system, my keratosis pilaris reduced a whole lot! Perhaps even your keratosis pilaris could be caused by some medication that you are taking. Always go for herbal remedies in place of conventional drugs as you try to heal from keratosis pilaris.
As for diet, just make sure your digestion power is always at its prime so you can absorb nutrients effectively. The best way to do this is by incorporating more probiotics or fermented foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut and others into your diet.
