Keratosis pilaris (shaving bumps) with Argan Oil

We love argan oil, because it can be used on every part of a woman’s body. Just one bottle of argan oil can serve as your moisturizer, hair serum, hand cream and more. Native to Morocco, argan oil is extracted from an argan nut of the argan tree. It has qualities that make skin soft, moisturized, and well-hydrated with a beautifully faint glow.

Keratosis pilaris or shaving bumps

Keratosis pilaris or shaving rashes are solidified keratins which build up in hair follicles. It is a benign skin disorder caused by a lack of sebum and essential fatty acids, leading to congested hair follicles. Shaving bumps can occur on armpits, legs or the neck area - usually after a few sessions of plucking or shaving. Argan oil is rich in vitamin E, so it heals the skin of these bumps, while preventing any future occurrences.
