Not-so-lovely Lady Bumps

Fergie sings about Lovely Lady Lumps, but for those of us who struggle with not-so-lovely bumps on the backside of our arms, and sometimes on our thighs, we aren’t singing. These bumps are the result of an un-curable skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris. My dermatologist explained to me that it’s actually hereditary. If you have KP, these bumps won't go away no matter how much you scrub at them. Even though it’s an un-curable situation, you can keep those pesky bumps at bay by using a few choice products that genuinely work—if you use them regularly. KP is caused by blocked hair follicles. So here are a few products that will help clear things up for you: AmLactin, an over-the-counter moisturizer that helps significantly; DERMAdoctor KP Duty Dry Skin Repair Kit; Papaya Body Lotion by Mario Badescu; and A.H.A. Botanical Body Soap by Mario Badescu. Good luck, and say good-bye to your lady bumps.
