"Chicken skin" is a real skin condition known as keratosis pilaris. It's caused by a buildup of keratin that blocks the opening of your hair follicles (not because you ate a lot of chicken skin growing up), resulting in tiny, rough bumps. [Via Mayo Clinic]

Sadly, there's no cure or a way to prevent it. But you can make them appear smoother with the following hydrating and exfoliating products:

  1. Dr. S. Wong Sulfur Soap 

    The anti-inflammatory properties of sulfur soap can do some serious business with skin ailments like KP, acne, and eczema! Using this once a day will prevent pores and follicles from being clogged via gentle exfoliation.
