Moisturize the skin: This is a chronic skin condition which causes small bumps to form in the skin at the hair follicles. People who have this make a sebum that is a bit too thick, and many benefit from using lotions that moisturize the skin, and sometimes lotions containing ceramides are helpful too. Don't pick at your bumps, this only makes it worse.
