In brief: CeraVe Sal

As salicylic acid works to loosen and exfoliate dead skin cells, patented mve® technology allows a controlled release of nourishing ceramides, hyaluronic acid and antioxidant vitamin d into the skin to help repair and maintain the barrier. Salicylic acid’s exfoliating action enables these moisturizing ingredients to penetrate the skin more deeply, leaving it smooth and touchable.

In brief: Keratosis Pilaris

Keratosis pilaris sounds dangerous, but it's actually quite harmless.
Think of it as eczema of the hair follicles. A mild cortisone cream is usually sufficient to control it. Try 1% hydrocortisone, which is available over the counter; if that doesn't work, a dermatologist can prescribe something a bit stronger.
