Murashki arising from the cold or with strong emotional excitement – only a temporary condition. But goose bumps (or follicular hyperkeratosis) is a defect that will not disappear without professional intervention.

Many girls are faced with the appearance on the skin of such small white inflammations, visually similar to pimples. They do not hurt, but they look aesthetically unpleasant and cause considerable emotional discomfort. Follicular hyperkeratosis can affect any part of the body where hairs grow (legs, arms, face). BeautyHack has researched several ways to get rid of goose bumps.

Causes of occurrence

Several factors influence the appearance of permanent “goose bumps”, but if you do not start to get rid of the defect right away, over time the “pimples” will only become coarser and more noticeable.

Pay attention to the fact that this skin defect may be a symptom of some disease or hormonal disruption, so first of all it is worth contacting a specialist to identify the exact cause.

Heredity. If one of your relatives had follicular hyperkeratosis, then, most likely, this problem will not bypass you either. With a predisposition, it is almost impossible to cope with the disease, but it is quite possible to reduce ugly bumps with the help of comprehensive care.

Avitaminosis. The lack of vitamins of groups A, C, E immediately affects the skin – it becomes dry, begins to peel off and, as a result, can become uneven, covered with ugly bumps. All about the necessary vitamins and the rules for their selection, read here

Improper nutrition. If the bumps appear on the hands, then you can be sure that this unpleasant cosmetic problem arose due to improper nutrition and a lack of nutrients, vitamins and trace elements.

Endocrine system. Impaired metabolism or a failure in the production of hormones is another reason for the appearance of long-term goosebumps.

Disposal options

Balanced diet. The key to beautiful and smooth skin is proper nutrition and a sufficient amount of foods rich in vitamins and nutrients (how to diversify your diet so that the skin shines with beauty, read here). “Goose bumps” will disappear if you follow a diet rich in vitamins and minerals.

Peeling – probably one of the most effective and popular procedures in the fight against such a skin defect. Exfoliating your skin regularly (the optimal frequency is 3 times a week) will make the skin softer and smoother. You can find out about face and body peels that you have not tried yet. here

Use a different type of peel for each area of ​​your body. For example, the skin under the eyes is very thin and sensitive – almond peeling is suitable for it, and to exfoliate the rough skin of the feet, you will need a product with larger particles – salt or sugar. Try also salon peeling with vitamin C. You can learn more about it here

Bath procedures. Bath or sauna – a place where, under the influence of heat and moist steam, the skin becomes soft and smooth. Try, for example, an infrared sauna: you will learn about its benefits and dangers here

If there is no opportunity to visit such places regularly, you can steam and soften the skin in a regular shower or bath. For example, an oatmeal bath can help reduce goose bumps on the buttocks and soothe irritated skin and make it smoother and firmer.

Masks and wraps. Skin with rough bumps always needs hydration, so wraps with essential oils and blue clay are your savior. And if masks are more to your taste, please note that masks with seaweed will give the best result.

Creams. Apply moisturizer both morning and evening! And for a more effective result, add vitamins A and E. And, of course, do not forget about products with a high SPF filter in summer and during the period of active sun – they will protect the skin from the appearance of rough areas under the influence of solar radiation.
