7. Vitamin A
In some cases, a vitamin A deficiency can be the reason behind the development of bumps on your arms. Vitamin A contains retinol, which aids in cell turnover and prevents hair follicles from getting plugged up.
Plus, this vitamin is an important nutrient for skin health and can help improve the look and feel of your skin.
- Break open a vitamin A capsule, squeeze the oil out of it and apply it directly on the skin. Massage it gently for a few minutes, then leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water. Repeat twice daily.
- Also, eat foods rich in vitamin A like chicken liver, butter, eggs and whole milk. You can opt to take a vitamin A supplement, after consulting your doctor.
8. Sun Exposure
It is important to enjoy some sunshine every day. This aids the synthesis of vitamin D, which helps the skin shed off excess keratin and works as a preventive measure to reduce the risk of having keratosis pilaris.
You can enhance your vitamin D level by making sure to sit under direct sunlight early in the morning. However, avoid sun exposure during peak hours and do not go out without applying sunscreen on exposed skin.
Apart from sunlight, you can eat vitamin D-rich foods or consult your doctor about taking a vitamin D supplement.
