The weather is getting warmer, which means you should be enjoying the much-needed sunshine. Banish the little bumps on your arms--and regain your confidence in tank tops--with this quick and easy at-home fix.
First of all, ditch the worry; half the population goes through this same thing. It’s called keratosis pilaris, and those tiny bumps are nothing more than a build up of dead skin cells that plug up your hair follicles. Plus, it’s easy as pie to fix in time for spring fashion.
All you need is a container of yogurt or sour cream, a washcloth, and a small bowl. These dairy aisle staples are packed with lactic acid, which breaks down keratin build up. Getting baby-smooth skin is as easy as soaking your washcloth in warm water, dipping it in this double-duty dairy item, and gently rubbing it against the affected skin. Let the lactic acid go to work for ten minutes while you read or watch TV, then wash it off with warm water.
Swipe on a thin layer of lotion while your pores are open and ready to soak it in, and enjoy the smooth, supple feeling of arms that are more than tank top ready. They should feel extra smooth thanks to the exfoliating action of the washcloth combined with the lactic acid’s potent beauty powers.
