    Miracle Carrot Juice

    I read that beta-carotine and vitamin A are really good for KP. I started drinking about 1/2 of a cup of fresh carrot juice a day (approximatley 4 carrots) and my KP has almost dissapeared. It used to run down my arm and the bumps were really red and close together. Now i have patches that have no KP at all and the overall redness is getting lighter.
    As far as exfoliation goes, I used St.Ives Apricot Scrub almost daily (when i remember to) and it seems to help a lot. It has salicylic acid which helps acne. I also try to moisturize everyday. I've found that if i go a few days or a week with out moisturizing then it gets really bad.
    I also noticed that the KP gets a lot better when i'm exposed to sunlight. I've started taking walks (with sunscreen on) and exposing my arms, and that has also helped.

    i'ved eaten about 3 pounds of carrots in the past week. i also bought 2 more 1 lbs packs from the store. i eat those at one sitting, so i have 2 more for the week. I would say thats a big increase in my diet. I have yet to see results...

    Lonewolf, I think you can benefit more from getting the juice out of them and drinking. Thats what another post claimed anyways.

    Juicing them or eating the carrot will make no difference to the content of the Vitamin A/betacarotene or the calcium that you will get from it. Eating the carrot may actually be better because you will be getting the fibre from the carrot as well which is important for a good functional digestive system

About KeratosisPilaris.org

Keratosis Pilaris is a very common benign genetic skin condition. KeratosisPilaris.org is the definitive resource for KP on the internet.

KP appears as rough or bumpy skin on the back and/or outer sides of your upper arms. The severity of the symptoms varies from person to person. You can also manifest it on the face as a natural blush (known as KPRF or Keratosis Pilaris Rubra Faceii).

This community is composed primarily of KeratosisPilaris.org community members, but is also open for those interested in the topic.
