the beauty thrifter is in!

Processed with VSCOcam with f1 presetI gotta admit, I struggled to pick a photo for this post. Featuring a stock image of a woman with smooth skinny arms would be an easy out, but since this conversation’s really rooted in the topic of embarrassment, I figured why not rip the Band-Aid off and share an image featuring a whole bunch of things that make me self-conscious—my arms, booty, ugly kitchen, broken Crock-Pot, un-brushed hair, etc., etc. (Easy outs aren’t for me, I guess.)

But what now about embarrassment? Well, when it comes to my appendages, I’ve got to admit that more often than not, my arm confidence isn’t as strong as I’d like it to be. While some self-consciousness stems from jiggly bits and the fact I haven’t done a downward dog in months, the majority is a result from my years-long struggle with keratosis pilaris, a fancy name for what most of us call chicken bumps. After trying everything from dry-brushing to derm-prescribed hydroxy creams, this summer, I found cure in the most of unlikely of places…Target’s beauty aisle. Get the full scoop on my discovery today, over on Beauty Bets!

  1. KP is usually easily managed. Regular exfoliation and moisturizing helps to keep it under control, which is what your Target product does. Another good and inexpensive routine is to exfoliate daily with a loofa in the shower and use moisturizer in the morning and again in the evening. There is also the theory that KP is caused by poor digestion of fats, so you can also work on your digestion and nutritional diet to reduce its occurrence.
