If you’re Irish or have sensitive skin, then my guess is that you suffer from keratosis pilaris on the back of your arms like I do. I’ve seen different dermatologists regarding it, but nothing they prescribed helped me. Post college, I was buying Dermadoctor’s pricey KP Duty Scrub and Lotion for years (also available at Sephora here and here). I felt like it was working better than anything the dermatologist ever recommended, but I still wasn’t seeing 100% results. To cut down on cost, I’m experimenting with trying a normal exfoliant on the back of my arms followed by Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy Skin. While it doesn’t seem to give results as good as the Dermadoctor, I think it still works better than anything else I’ve tried. This may be a more cost efficient routine to stick to until the day that I’m professionally photographed in a sleeveless dress. Which will probably only happen if I’m ever in a wedding party again.
