What is KP?
Keratosis Pilaris, also known as chicken skin, is a very common, genetic skin condition that affects nearly 80% of the population. It occurs when the hair follicles on the skin are clogged, causing little red bumps to break out on the arms, legs, and face. While it’s totally harmless, the bumps can become inflamed, itchy and irritated if they’re not treated with some TLC. The summer months can be especially irritating as dry weather tends to cause skin to be ultra sensitive. And while there’s no cure, per say, a lot can be done to keep the symptoms and flare-ups at bay!
How can we treat it?
Keeping the skin both exfoliated and hydrated is key! Like Nicole mentions, our Coconut Crush Scrub and Coconut Body Milk are powerful duo of products for those with KP. “One of the first steps to battling Keratosis Pilaris is you have to find a good exfoliator. The best one I’ve ever used is Kopari… This is the best one because it actually hydrates your skin also which is another step to KP.” Our Coconut Crush Scrub is made with crushed Tahitian coconut shells and brown sugar that gently exfoliate dry skin away to reveal a smoother complexion. It’s also made with coconut oil (of course!) so it hydrates while it buffs. Then our Coconut Body Milk comes in to really lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. During a 28-day 100-person study, 92% of consumers said our Coconut Crush Scrub reduced the appearance of chicken skin and its symptoms, so if KP is something you’re struggling with, our Kopari Dream Team is here to help!
How do I use the Kopari Dream Team?
On dry skin, gently rub the Coconut Crush Scrub onto the affected areas (or all over!) so that it polishes off a layer of dry, irritated skin. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Then follow up with our Coconut Body Milk as an all over lotion.
