Get Rid of Red Skin Bumps with Just 2 Ingredients

Those nasty red bumps that appear on your arms, thighs or rear, can become a thing of a past. I’ve discovered that Keratosis Pilaris, the scientific name for these unsightly bumps, doesn’t require a visit to the dermatologist. This problem, which afflicts 80% of the population, can be cured naturally using ingredients found in your kitchen.

What do I need? - This simple solution requires a bag of white sugar and olive oil. That’s it. This cheap and convenient remedy only needs a bit of patience. It will take a few days before you seen any visible results, so keep at it because it really works.

Preparing the scrub - You need to both exfoliate and moisturize your skin for this technique to work. Use a freezer jar and pour in 1 cup of sugar, leaving an inch of room to pour the olive oil on top. Close the lid and shake this mixture vigorously for several minutes, until it is thoroughly mixed.

Scrub daily - Use the sugar as a scrub in the shower every day. After several days of consistent use, you will notice an improvement in your skin’s appearance. The redness will start fading, and the bumps will disappear. Now you can wear shorts or sleeveless shirts without embarrassment.

Add essential oils - Some people will find the smell of olive oil can be unpleasant, especially if you begin sweating. The solution to this is to add a few drops of essential oil to the scrub. I recommend the following combinations:

  • 6 drops of peppermint and 2 drops of lavender
  • Or 6 drops of peppermint and 6 drops of wild orange
