Smooth Skin Secrets: Our Guide on Treating Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis pilaris, also known as KP or chicken skin, is a common skin condition that is described as a build-up of excess keratin within the skin's hair follicles causing small, rough bumps on the skin, typically on the upper arms, thighs, and buttocks. This blocking of the hair follicles is a harmless skin condition, however, keratosis pilaris can be annoying and these skin bumps leave people feeling self-conscious about their skin. Keratosis Pilaris is often associated with genetic skin conditions like atopic dermatitis. Fortunately, there are various ways to improve the appearance of keratosis pilaris, like a gentle skin care routine that includes using skincare products like our Smooth Skin Scrub and Firming Lotion to unclog those tiny bumps on the affected 'chicken skin'.
Coffee scrub is a popular exfoliating treatment that has become increasingly popular in recent years for treating keratosis pilaris. This scrub is made from two forms of coffee, Green coffee bean extract and Arabica coffee grounds, which are rich in antioxidants and caffeine. When applied to the skin, our Smooth Skin Scrub can help reduce small bumps, remove dead skin cells, unclog pores, and improve skin texture, without stripping the natural oils in the skin and within each hair follicle. For people with keratosis pilaris, scientifically formulated coffee scrubs like our Smooth Skin Scrub can help smooth out rough bumps and improve the overall appearance of the affected skin.

To use our Smooth Skin Scrub for the treatment of keratosis pilaris, start by wetting your skin in the shower. Then, squeeze a pea-sized amount and gently massage it into the affected areas, using circular motions for gentle exfoliation. After a few minutes, rinse off and pat your skin dry. You can repeat this process 2-3 times a week for the best results. For a more intense scrub to remove more dead skin, apply to dry skin.


Moisturiser is another essential skincare product that can help improve the appearance of KP. Keratosis pilaris is often associated with dry skin, so using a moisturiser regularly can help keep the skin hydrated and prevent new bumps from forming. Our Firming Lotion (also available in Fragrance-Free) is Rich in shea butter, pineapple fruit oil, and green coffee bean extract from Byron Bay, three ingredients that help with rebuilding elasticity and works to renew skin cells, leaving you with a smooth, soft and glowing complexion and stops making any previous signs of keratosis pilaris worse.
When using our Firming Lotion for KP, it's essential to apply it regularly and consistently. Ideally, you should moisturise at least twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. After showering or bathing, pat your skin dry and apply our Firming Lotion while your skin is still slightly damp to help lock in moisture.
Combining our Smooth skin scrub and Firming lotion can help improve the appearance of keratosis pilaris even more. By using our Smooth Skin Scrub to exfoliate the skin and our Firming Lotion to hydrate and protect it, you can help reduce the appearance of rough, bumpy skin among other symptoms without the need for harsh laser treatments.


In conclusion, using our Smooth Skin Scrub and Firming lotion can help improve the appearance of Keratosis Pilaris. By gently exfoliating the skin and keeping it hydrated, you can relieve symptoms, help smooth out rough bumps and achieve smoother, healthier-looking skin. So if you're struggling with KP, many of our customers have seen amazing results with using our Smooth Skin Scrub and Firming Lotion daily.
