Skin advice: Not trying to get too medical here. But, I’ve been having bacne (and related pigmentation) on upper back and upper arms. Doctors have called it Keratosis Pilaris. I’ve tried multiple things but nothing REALLY seems to work. Any tips / suggestions?

Get The Ordinary Glycolic Acid toner, put it in a spray bottle and spray twice a day on all KP after you shower. Use a urea based cream. I cured my KP with these two.

This isn’t good advice but my sister gets sunburns to stop it in the summer

Couple things I’ve done include rubbing it with a diluted apple cider (or other neutral) vinegar or witch hazel or other acidic toner (eg salicylic acid); the Neutrogena body scrubs also work well when I use them a few times a week; moisturize!!!

Drink lots of water, I don’t know what can help but I know water does!

I have KP on my upper arms too - First Aid Beauty has a scrub for it. Really, it’s all about exfoliation and moisturizing. Some days are worse than others, I’ve learned to just accept it at this point.

Have you considered/tried an antibiotic pill? Dermatologists can proscribe— worked well for me when I was in High school for stubborn body acne. I never had any side effects. Might be worth asking about.

Amlactin lotion works wonderfully for my KP. Or any AHA lotion or toner will work, lactic acid is my favorite because it’s the most gentle. Most importantly, if you use an AHA lotion or toner, do NOT skip the sunscreen!!!

use korean exfoliating cloths- helps minimize the bumps nd makes your skin super soft too

I’m mentally breaking down because I have been doing a job of a scheduler, PM, notetaker, regulatory submissions, and thus have no room for growth to work on strategy. I’m an AS and I am so sick of having to remind everyone because no one looks at my notes, recaps, and no one remembers anything from any meeting. Recently because I’m so exhausted I started making more “mistakes” like not catching a mistake on a submission. Is this because I suck or is it time for me to move off? I feel terrible.
