There are many ways to avoid chicken skin, keep it from worsening, or prevent it altogether. Here are some dermatologically certified tips:
- Don’t take hot baths too often. Use lukewarm water to maintain your skin’s natural moisture.
- Skip the harsh cleansers. Go for gentle, fragrance-free soaps that contain soothing ingredients.
- Don’t rub or scrub your skin when drying off. It may sound minor, but it can make a big difference in the long run.
- Keep a humidifier on while you sleep.
- Try a DIY exfoliating scrub with honey and sugar. Don’t forget to moisturize after!
- Make an oatmeal bath. In place of bath salts, use a cup of fine oatmeal in your bathwater
Nevertheless, if you’re willing to shell out some cash for faster remedies, here are some products and services that can help you:
- The first and simplest: moisturizing lotion
- Skin creams that contain the following: urea, lactic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, tretinoin, and/or vitamin D
- Retexturizing pads with glycolic acid
- Any skin product that contains coconut oil and/or retinol (a form of vitamin A)
- An exfoliation treatment service called “microdermabrasion” (Ask your favourite spa or skin care clinic if they offer this treatment!)
- Hair removal via Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser therapy will painlessly take away pore-blocking keratin.
Have a flawless and smooth skin.
