AMELIORATE Skincare - It's Smooth Sailing From Now On6:00 am
Life can be rough sometimes. And as it turns out, so can your skin.
Lately I noticed areas of my skin had become rugged over time. I had developed "chicken skin" - rough, dry, bumpy skin medically known as Keratosis Pilaris that affects 40% of people - on the outside of my knees and upper thighs, and on the middle parts of the backs of my arms.
I had come to the conclusion that this is just what happens with age, and that eventually, much of my body would lose its smooth, soft feel.
Not so, it turns out. All I needed was AMELIORATE Skincare to save the day - and my skin.
Annette Luck out of the UK, created the successful formulation in collaboration with a team of top scientists, after suffering from KP herself, and as her two sons developed the condition.
Her amazing cream is a miracle worker. Here's why:
- AMELIORATE Skin Smoothing Body Lotion
The first UK-made body lotion specifically created to help improve the appearance of Keratosis Pilaris goes to work quickly.
Using high levels of lactic acid, a naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acid derived from milk or sugar cane, it both naturally exfoliates the skin - effortlessly and gently removing the buildup of dead skin (you won't feel a thing) - while simultaneously infusing your skin with intense moisture.
Other key ingredients include glycerine, which helps draw water to the skin's surface to keep your skin moisturized, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E. Some ingredients you might not be as familiar with: serine - a naturally occurring amino acid, sodium lactate that moisturizes beyond belief, skin conditioning milk protein complex, urea and allentoin - both of which work to add moisture while helping remove dead skin.
For such a thick cream, it's remarkable how light and non-oily it is, and how quickly it absorbs. And even during the few cold days we've had, my skin feels deeply and continually hydrated. So much so, it's tempting to just slather it everywhere from head to toe as it retains moisture better than that drugstore body lotion you've been using. The large tube (200 ml/6.7 fl. oz.) is big enough that you don't have to worry about it running out, even if you're targeting spots all over. Note: Travel size is also available. There is a slight baby powder-like scent that wafts for a few seconds, but it dissipates.
The result is that in less than a week, my knees were already almost completely smoothed out, as were the other parts of my body. My skin also looked better. It's advised that it takes awhile to work, but I found success straightaway.
All it takes it to apply twice daily to clean skin. And like with many medications, just because you're looking and feeling better, doesn't mean you should stop - continued use is recommended as "Keratin will start to build again in the follicles and bumps will reappear if application is not maintained," Luck says.
- It's gentle enough to use on your face
- Suitable for kids over three, the wee ones don't have to suffer
- You don't have to suffer from KP to use it: put it on pre-tan to get a smooth, even application, rub it over hands and feet for super smooth, can't-wait-to-touch-it skin (your mani-pedis have never been better).
- AMELIORATE Skin Softening Bathing Powder
A soothing bath that softens your skin? Is there a better way to end your day.
Note: this has a stronger baby powder-ish scent.
Other products include Body Polish, Shower Cream, and Body Mitt.
