Do you have those pesky red bumps on your arms? The ones that look like “chicken skin”? If you raised your red bump covered arm, you are in good company. 80% of the population has red bumps called Keratosis Pilaris either on their arms, thighs, or booty.
Mine happen to be on my arms. Of course I think having it on the back of my arms means I have it in the absolute worse place in the history of ever. Sleeveless shirts mock me in the summertime. Tank tops cause me all kinds of stress.
Doctor treatment of my keratosis pilaris has had virtually no effect, even though I have tried some aggressive forms of treatment. Forgive me for wanting a magical cream to rub on daily, regardless of toxicity to the rest of my body, so that my arms look great in a sleeveless little black dress.
Unfortunately that doctor prescribed magical cream does not exist.
Being stubborn, and perhaps just a wee bit vain (thank you for understanding), I have never given up trying to improve the appearance on the back of my arms. Which is how I hit upon this gem of a treatment.
I should have known that a simple, all natural treatment would be just as, if not more effective than, anything a high priced dermatologist ever gave me.
Have I mentioned that this all natural treatment is also super cheap and uses ingredients you have in your kitchen?
Go forth to your kitchen and gather white sugar and olive oil. With just these two ingredients you can start erasing those bumps right away.
If you are thinking to yourself, “This sounds suspiciously like she is telling me to make a sugar scrub.”
That’s because I’m telling you to mix up a sugar scrub.
In order to treat those red bumps on your arms you need to do two things:
The sugar will exfoliate your skin while the oil provides the moisture.
If you are thinking it can’t be as easy as a sugar scrub, I ask you to give it a go. What do you have to lose?
Oh yeah. Those embarrassing red bumps on the back of your arms.
