Since I'm a child I suffer from quite a common skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris, aka. 'Chicken skin'. It is completely harmless to the health, yet, I still suffered because it basically creates red bumps that look like little pimples on the skin so it just doesn't really look nice and always affected my self confidence. I have a very light form of Keratosis Pilaris and it only appears to be on my upper arms. I therefore would hardly ever wear sleeveless tops or dresses and since it bothered me so much I’ve been looking for a cure to the chicken skin since ages.
And now I seem to have finally found something that really works and since Keratosis Pilaris is so common I thought that this might be interesting for some of you, too!
I first read about Coconut Oil as a beauty wonder for skin and hair on a german website and became really curious about it..
Could this finally help me to change my annoying skin condition?
I’ve tried so many things to get rid of it over the years but all I found to be at least partially working was to simply moisturise my skin so you wouldn’t notice the little bumps that much and make them feel smoother and some tricks with my diet that would help. But coconut oil for usage as a cosmetic product sounded kind of promising.
I had tried so many things so why not try this one as well.
It is quickly absorbed by the skin and the perfect skin and hair care product, in addition to that it’s easily available in any local supermarket and cheap. It’s very healthy and multifaceted!
Apparently you can even use it as a deodorant or make-up remover.
But back to my Keratosis Pilaris.. To be honest, after applying Coconut oil to my skin for the first time I didn’t notice a great change, actually didn’t notice a change at all but after 2 weeks there is already a visible effect. Coconut oil made my condition nearly invisible!
|As you can see my case is quite light but I suspect that in severer cases this might work even better!|
And the best part about it all - I can finally wear sleeveless tops without being ashamed of my arms again! :)
