While KP requires on going treatment in order for it to be maintained it can be improved with consistency, here are products I'm using in my bodycare routine to treat my KP.
Physical exfoliants: Body scrubs with physical exfoliation such as salt scrubs, and sugar scrubs. Tip : Physical exfoliation alone won't clear up this skin condition. The KP scrub from first aid beauty combines chemical and physical exfoliants and it is crazy effective at clearing KP.
Moisturizing products: Products such as body creams, and dry oils help to replenish moisture post exfoliation. You can also incorporate AHA's and BHA's into your moisturizer for even more results, just be mindful to keep these areas protected with SPF. This watermelon glow body cream is a go-to.
