7. Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin E oil is also beneficial for treating keratosis pilaris as it helps smooth out the bumps and retain moisture. Plus, vitamin E facilitates skin repair and is essential for the maintenance of healthy skin.

  • Apply vitamin E oil on your skin, preferably when it is slightly wet, once or twice daily. If you do not have the oil, you can simply puncture a vitamin E capsule and use the contents for topical application.
  • Another option is to mix a few tablespoons of vitamin E oil in warm bath water and soak in it for 20 to 30 minutes. Repeat about three times a week.

8. Fish Oil

Essential fatty acids like omega 3-fatty acids help in the treatment of keratosis pilaris as they heal dryness and promote healthy skin. Fish oil is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Take one to three grams of fish oil supplement daily. For proper dosage and suitable for your case, consult your doctor.
  • Oily fish like salmon, mackerel, trout, sardines and tuna are also good sources of essential fatty acids. So, also include fatty fish in your diet. The general recommendation is one serving of fatty fish twice a week.

Note: Fish oil may interact with medications that slow blood clotting.

  1. I can vouch for the apple cider vinegar remedy (drinking it). My doctor gave me all these expensive lotions and whatnot, and nothing worked. I started drinking Bragg’s ACV and raw, unfiltered honey (1 TBS of each in 16 oz of warm water 1/day) just for the other health benefits (that it would help with my KP never occurred to me) and within just a few weeks I noticed the KP disappearing! The only time the KP has returned is when I’ve stopped drinking the mixture for a few weeks. Resume the drink, and the KP disappears again. I’m a believer.

  2. Any suggestions for a teenage boy who has been diagnosed with keratosis pilaris on face and arms? The arms aren’t a problem but both cheeks have red slightly bumpy splotches, looks like a bad sunburn. We’ve used coconut oil after exfoliation with out much results!

  3. After 40 years of being embarrassed when I see someone notice it and never wanting to go out of the house with anything shorter than past my knees or elbows on I will be so thrilled to get results from something. Just put on shorts and not have to feel self-conscious because I’m covered in red polka dots on a bright white background that is noticeable from across the room. I just want to wear shorts in the summer! Fingers crossed. Thank you much.
