Bumps on the Back of ArmsDisclosure
First things first. Nothing will help if you continue to pick them. Picking only makes things worse! Here is what you can do to help:
Aspirin comes from the same source as salicylic acid which is a great chemical exfoliant. Keratosis Pilaris (those little chicken skin bumps on the back of your arms and thighs) need to be exfoliated. Loofas sometimes just aren’t enough. Aspirin can be greatly reduce the bumps by crushing several tablets up and making a paste with water. Scrub scrub scrub! Let the medicine do its thing, and rinse clean.
If you want a quicker cleaner version of this treatment, get IMAGE Skincare wipes and simply wipe them down every night. I LOVE THESE THINGS. *you can also use these to spot treat pimples, or on the whole face for acne prone skin to prevent breakouts. **Tip: cut the pads in half to last longer!
