BUnfortunately I have not taken before pictures. I wish I had.
I have been struggling with keratosis pilaris(KP) on my arms and legs for most of my teen and adult life. Along with dry itchy skin,
As a teen, my Doctor instructed me to use a lotion on my arms to help with KP.. and it would help, a little. But I never found something that helped enough.
When wearing short sleeves I would constantly be asked if I had a rash or something on my upper arms. I got to the point where I live in long sleeves and cardigans most of the year to cover my symptoms.
For those of you who don't know what KP is... It's also called chicken pumps or chicken skin. Tiny red bumps commonly found on the back of your upper arms, but can also plague your legs & lower arms, and other parts of your body. Mine was most sever on my upper arms and legs. Although I did have mild problems all over.
Now, I have been using Plexus Slim for a year now. And although, I am not 100% consistant, I try my best to take it as regularly as I can.
I purchased the Plexus Cream several month back. And it has set on my shelf staring me in the face for quite some time. I guess I was shocked by its small size vs. cost. For some reason, I put off using it.
I have tried most every lotion and cream out there. Some very expensive, some thick & sticky.
I have also used Coconut oil and many other natural oils and creams.
Most recently I have been using Cetaphil cream and seemed to be ok. Although, I still has some KP symptoms.
Last week, I FINALLY decided to try out Plexus Cream, since I have been staring at it for so long.
May as well not let it go to waste!
I could not believe the improvement after one week. I was completely impressed. My KP on my arms is barely noticeable. So, about half way through the week, I just started slathering it ALL over my body.
May as well!
I have stretch marks from my chest to my upper thighs(4 pregnancies can do that to you), and KP on my thighs & calves. I have extras dry skin on my heels and hands. And a wart on my pointer finger that has tripled in size after many treatments to get rid of it. It can't hurt right..
Within this week:
1. The KP on my arms is barely noticeable.
2. My wart on my finger has reduced in size by half! I don't know if it is a coincidence or a direct result. But it's true.
3. I am by far, less itchy overall. I am flaky and dry all winter thanks to have a woodstove for heat and the dry winter air.
I wish I had taken pictures for comparison, but if you don't believe me. Talk to my mom about how bad my arms. I am sure she can confirm my KP.
I can not wait to see what my results are for after a month!
