Our skin is a remarkable organ, but it can sometimes develop imperfections that we'd rather live without. Two common concerns people face are skin tags and keratosis pilaris. These skin issues can be bothersome, but the good news is that there's a solution to address them – Visual Changes Skin Care Resurfacing Pads. In this blog, we'll explore what skin tags and keratosis pilaris are, how to identify them, and how these resurfacing pads can help you achieve healthier, smoother skin.
Skin tags, or acrochordons, are small, benign growths of skin that often appear on various parts of the body. They are typically painless and harmless, but they can be a cosmetic concern. Here's how to identify skin tags:
Size: Skin tags are usually small, ranging from a few millimeters to a few centimeters in size.
Color: They are typically flesh-colored or slightly darker than your skin.
Texture: Skin tags are soft and often look like tiny flaps of skin.
Location: They commonly occur in areas where skin rubs against skin, such as the neck, underarms, and groin.
Painless: Skin tags typically do not cause pain unless they become irritated or snagged on clothing or jewelry.
Keratosis pilaris (KP) is a common skin condition that results in small, red or flesh-colored bumps on the skin's surface. These bumps often feel rough and have a texture resembling sandpaper. KP usually appears on the upper arms, thighs, butt, and sometimes the face. Identifying keratosis pilaris involves looking for these key characteristics:
Bumps: KP is characterized by the presence of small, raised bumps on the skin's surface.
Color: The bumps can be red, flesh-colored, or sometimes even white.
Texture: KP bumps often feel rough and may resemble goosebumps or the texture of sandpaper.
Location: Common areas for KP include the upper arms, thighs, butt, and, in some cases, the face.
Visual Changes Skin Care Resurfacing Pads offer a convenient and effective solution for addressing both skin tags and keratosis pilaris while promoting overall skin health. These pads are formulated with natural fruit alpha hydroxy acids, including 5% Glycolic Acid derived from Sugar Cane, 5% Lactic Acid derived from Honey, Lavender Essential Oil, and anti-inflammatories. Here's how these ingredients work:
Glycolic Acid: Glycolic Acid is a powerful exfoliant that helps remove dead skin cells, allowing smoother, healthier skin to emerge. It can also aid in dissolving the tissue that forms skin tags.
Lactic Acid: Lactic Acid provides gentle exfoliation and helps hydrate the skin. It contributes to softening the skin's texture, including areas affected by keratosis pilaris.
Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender Essential Oil has anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce irritation and redness associated with skin tags and KP.
Anti-inflammatories: The addition of anti-inflammatory ingredients further reduces the risk of skin irritation.
It's crucial to note that these resurfacing pads are not suitable for sensitive skin types. If you have sensitive skin, consult a dermatologist for alternative treatment options.
Wipe the skin daily with these pads and the skin tags should wipe off in about a month. However, larger skin tags may take longer. The surrounding skin typically doesn't seem to dry out or get sensitive but if it does, just stop using it for a few days and resume usage again.
The pads are designed to dry out the tags until they wipe off. If you forget to use or lay off for a day or two the tags stay at the same dryness they were when you stopped using them.
When using exfoliating products like Visual Changes Skin Care Resurfacing Pads, daily sun protection is essential. Applying sunscreen can safeguard your skin from potential damage due to increased sensitivity caused by exfoliation. Consider using Suntegrity suncare products, which offer natural and organic formulas that are reef-friendly and suitable for the entire family.
Skin tags and keratosis pilaris can be a source of frustration and self-consciousness, but you don't have to live with them. Visual Changes Skin Care Resurfacing Pads provide a practical solution for addressing these concerns while revealing healthier, smoother skin. By understanding these skin issues and their characteristics, you can take proactive steps toward achieving the skin you desire. Say goodbye to skin imperfections and hello to a more confident you!
