Body Care By Ameliorate

Ever since I was little, I've had this terrible goose-bumpy texture on the tops of my arms (known as Keratosis Pilaris) which I've not been able to remove, I've tried all the body creams, exfoliators and gloves under the sun and nothing will shift it. As I've got older it's actually got worse and it now is on the tops of my legs, not badly but it's still there and being a girl, I dream of soft, supple and smooth limbs. The only way to improve this I've found so far is sun exposure and obviously living in not-so-sunny England, I don't get that everyday, so when I was approached by a PR company and asked if I'd like to try Ameliorate, a body care range designed for those with Keratosis Pilaris, I jumped at the chance. Could this be the end of my bumpy limbs?

I've been using the range since I got it and I have to say I'm really impressed. In the shower I use the Skin Smoothing Shower Cream* to wash my body and then I apply extra to the Skin Smoothing Body Mitt* and exfoliate my arms and my legs. The shower cream is scentless but lathers up enough to properly clean your body. I particularly like the mitt as it's unlike any exfoliating glove I've tried before, the glove is a thin, lightweight material which is abrasive but not too harsh like traditional exfoliating gloves. I work the shower cream into a lather on the mitt and exfoliate my body ready for moisturiser when I get out.

When I have dried off, I apply a 50p size amount of the Skin Smoothing Body Lotion* to the tops of my arms and then around double this for the tops of my legs. Like the shower gel, the lotion is scentless and very gentle on the skin. I've found the lotion to be thick and luxurious, and when I apply this and it's quickly absorbed into the skin leaving my arms soft and hydrated. The real test is how this leaves my body after a long period of time, in the past I've tried moisturisers and they've improved the texture of my skin but haven't left long lasting results. I can say that using the combination of the mitt, shower cream and body lotion I've found the appearance of my skin to be dramatically improved, I'm not cured yet by all means but it the texture is definitely a lot softer and they don't look as bumpy.

Have you got Keratosis Pilaris? What body care do you use? Let me know below :)
